Whether you’re an event planner, a couple looking to tie the knot or a proud parent of a bride- or groom-to-be, you know that planning a wedding can be time-consuming and stressful. That’s why many have opted for destination weddings instead of conventional weddings, as they’re simpler to plan, are more intimate, and allow the couple and their close friends and family to enjoy a slice of paradise as they celebrate the marriage in a way that blows away their local banquet hall. However, what many are unaware of is that villa rentals, which are often large sprawling estates with magnificent courtyards, are often the perfect venue for destination weddings.
Vacation rental owners, for their part, are often happy to accommodate weddings, although, as is normal, they may expect a slightly higher rental fee, as well as an additional security deposit. They may also be happy to provide you with local contacts for catering and entertainment, which will help you offer something truly unique to your guests. The kitchens of such places also tend to be large and fully-equipped, and are therefore fully capable of accommodating a professional cooking crew.
Also, the couple and even some of their close family can stay on the property, as these villas not only tend to have a plethora of bedrooms, but may even have guest houses on site as well. Best of all, these properties are usually beachfront estates or at the very least have very large gardens, meaning the happy couple will get an amazing and unique backdrop as they exchange their vows, which is sure to create one of those unique wedding experiences none of the guests are going to forget any time soon.
If you’re a couple, you may also want to consider visiting your local travel agent for destination wedding information, as most travel agents can happily accommodate this request and even get you and your guests volume discounts on airfare. If you’re an agent yourself, you already know this, but you may not know that you can consult Travel Rental Network for a database of rental properties that are willing to work with you on commission, including many that are wedding friendly.
A destination wedding is an amazing opportunity to celebrate one of life’s most important moments in a way that’s beautiful, unique and unforgettable, which is why it’s no surprise that they’ve become so popular. Having said that, you may want some help planning things out, which is why your travel agent might just become your wedding planner before you know it!
