Are you dying to host your elopement in an Airbnb with mountain or ocean views instead of a stuffy venue?

Whatever your reason is, having an Airbnb wedding or elopement is so flexible + crafting the day you wanted becomes much easier!
The best thing about having an Airbnb wedding is you can have the exact day you want! Airbnb weddings and elopements are becoming more trendy as time goes on.

There are tons of airbnbs and VRBO’s popping up daily that are willing to host your elopement. You just need to find them!
Tips for choosing the right Airbnb or VRBO for your elopement!
Okay I want to be upfront about hosting your elopement at an Airbnb and don’t want to paint an unrealistic picture. Communication upfront + finding your perfect Airbnb may be the hardest part about securing an Airbnb as your venue. Though, there may still be some roadbumps you’ll have to encounter.
If possible, visit your Airbnb before your big day so you can get a lay of the land + so you’re able to visualize all your décor (if any) and see what’s needed to jazz up your space! Visiting and scouting your Airbnb location prior to your elopement can also help you visualize where you’ll take pictures. If you’re able to visit the space ahead of time, don’t forget to take pictures of the space! Then you can send these pictures to your photographer, stylist + planner! This will help them plan as best as they can!
It’s best to be in communication with your host about your plans, so that they are aware + can support your elopement. You definitely don’t want any unneeded anxiety about your elopement with your Airbnb host.
