Two Birds, One Wedding

Planning a wedding can be stressful. Every detail must be analyzed, then analyzed again — flowers, food, favors, and more. You can make things easy on yourself by choosing a venue that doubles as a rental. Especially for smaller weddings, it minimizes driving time and keeps the event as the celebration it’s meant to be. Keeping in mind that Airbnb’s announced ban on parties and official occupancy cap of 16 people remain in effect for now, and that you should always communicate with a host before booking that you hope to use their space for a wedding, here are stunning vacation rentals across America listed on Airbnb and Vrbo that double as elegant wedding venues.

Prices and availability are subject to change.
