What’s not to love about a destination wedding? Guests enjoy a guilt-free vacation with everything from accommodations to itineraries left up to the bride and groom; all that’s left to do is show up in paradise.
All is well until the bride and groom realize that a great challenge lies before them: a search for the perfect accommodation arrangements to comfortably house their friends and family. This can be a daunting task, especially if you plan to lodge everyone in separate hotels and motels dotted all over town.
The simple solution is, of course, a spacious vacation rental. The more luxurious the better, as this space can double as a beautiful wedding venue. Everyone wins!
Need a little convincing? Take a look at our top 8 reasons why this solution could actually make life easier when it comes to planning a perfect wedding:
A little longer with your loved ones
Forget driving back and forth to catch up with all of your friends and loved ones. You’ll have an entire home-base to yourselves where you can comfortably keep the celebrations and good times rolling! You might as well make the most of this milestone. No need to wrap things up in just one day.
Bigger is better
Hotels force your guests to spend a large portion of their holiday time bumping into total strangers as they navigate between lobbies, hallways and car parks. Vacation rentals are abundant with cozy, private spaces to retreat to: there’s room for all!
Picture perfect property
Stately residential homes boasting breathtaking views and carefully manicured lawns have the potential to outdo your generic botanical garden photoshoot. Just saying.
Money money money
Believe it or not, a well-kept million-dollar abode might appear the pricier option at a glance. Take a moment to calculate the cost of numerous individually paid hotel suites, and compare the total to the shared cost of a luxury rental. Try not to be too surprised when you discover the latter can actually end up being cheaper.
Party well into the wee-hours without venue rules and restrictions. Not only are the hours yours to decide, but you’ll have the added bonus of opting for either an indoor OR outdoorsoirée…or both. Take that, weather!
All the amenities
Hotels might come with spas, pools, game rooms, and backyard barbecue pits… but in your own rental property you aren’t sharing any of those things with strangers. Or going through the trouble of booking them, for that matter.
You’ll also enjoy privacy while you play. Play a few matches of tennis on your private court in the garden without being surrounded by the general public. Take a stroll down the beach situated feet away from your deck. Perfection!
Parking for days
It’s free. It’s close. Nobody has to dart in and out of the hotel parking lot, or fetch their vehicles from shady, poorly-lit parking buildings.
Literally every aspect of a couple’s wedding celebrations and traditions can be carried out on-venue. Pick a beautiful enough destination and you can set up the wedding, photos, reception and accommodation all on the one beautiful property!
