We’ve all been caught in the endless late-night Airbnb scroll, dreaming of gathering our friends in a French castle. What better reason to take advantage of all the incredible mansions than a destination wedding?
Housing your closest friends and family, avoiding transportation conundrums from venue to venue, and lack of curfew should be reason enough to look to Airbnb for your complete wedding stay, but on top of the ease and comfort, Airbnb prices are often a fraction of proper wedding venues and hotels.
Below are ten amazing spaces, dubbed “Suitable for Events” by their owners, that you could celebrate your nuptials luxuriously and seamlessly.
Rustic Lodge in the Pacific Northwest
Hidden within three wooded acres, beside a crystal clear lake in Washington State, the Rustic Neighborhood Lodge has the charm of an old frontier cabin, but the modernity of a luxury retreat in the mountains.
