The Best Airbnbs Around the World for Throwing a Micro Wedding
As we hum along amid the pandemic, DIY weddings, micro weddings, and elopements remain popular and continue to make sense for many folks looking to celebrate with a tight-knit group of family or friends. Bonus: These small scale weddings often double as destination weddings. While there are plenty of hotels, resorts, and wedding venues to choose from, only a handful of Airbnb properties are also bookable wedding venues—making a destination wedding more financially accessible than you might think. It’s like getting married at your own house, but better: An Airbnb gives couples a high degree of control over the event compared to more traditional venues.
Because the first-and-foremost purpose of Airbnb is to book a place to stay, however, it’s necessary to contact the host about your plans for a ceremony (or vendors like a photographer) before booking: Some require paying for a separate wedding package. Finally, be aware of Airbnb’s recent 16-person maximum policy for gatherings, and edit down your guest list accordingly. Without further delay, these are nine of our favorite Airbnbs for weddings.
While we have not stayed in every Airbnb featured, unless otherwise stated, these listings are vetted based on Superhost status, amenities, location, previous guest reviews, and decor.
