If you’re planning a small, intimate wedding, then you’re probably on the hunt for an awesome wedding venue. As the definition of elopement changes, so does the types of venues available. Airbnb wedding venues are becoming more popular among adventurous couples who are looking for an intimate and unique wedding setting.
Similar to traditional weddings, some elopements still require a small venue to get married or hold a small dinner with family after. If you’re planning an elopement for just the two of you, then renting an Airbnb is also a great option for your getting ready photos.
We have put together a list of all our favorite places to have an Airbnb wedding and still keep it adventurous.
Feel free to explore by location. Are we missing Airbnbs in your elopement destination? Leave us a comment with the place you’re interested in, and our team will work hard to find our best Airbnb pick for you.

Having a Wedding at an Airbnb
Deciding to have your wedding day, or at least part of your wedding day festivities, at an Airbnb can be exciting!
We personally love Airbnb weddings because they don’t usually come with the massive markup price most traditional wedding venues have. We also love Airbnbs for a more intimate and personal experience.
But how do you have a wedding at an Airbnb? What should you plan for?
Top Tips to Help You Prepare for Your Airbnb Wedding Day
Talk to the Host and ask if Hosting Your Wedding at Their Airbnb is OK
Since Airbnbs are becoming a popular wedding venue alternative, it’s important to be clear with the property owner.
Can you have a wedding at an Airbnb? While we have found the answer is usually YES for small and intimate weddings, a lot of Airbnb owners are not ok with big traditional weddings.
Try to see the Property in Person
This is huge if you’re planning on taking getting ready photos here or hosting a post elopement party with your immediate friends and family.
Seeing the property also allows you to consider the decor and location of the Airbnb.
Is the surrounding location somewhere you can take your wedding photos together?
Is there natural lighting?
If you aren’t sure, then connect with your photographer to see what you should be aware of when you visit the Airbnb.
Do Your Research
If you’re considering having an Airbnb wedding, then you need to do your research. This includes looking at the reviews, photos, and full listing on these Airbnbs.
Are you having your four-legged friend join you on your wedding day? If so, then you need to make sure the Airbnb is pet friendly.
Is the Airbnb close to your wedding ceremony location? We recommend finding an Airbnb venue that is centrally located to all the things you are trying to do.
