Especially if you want that cozy, at-home wedding feel, but you live in a city where venues cost major $$$. Plus, you might not have that rich aunt with a manicured three-acre lawn.
So if you can't have a wedding at your own home, why not rent someone else's? You can decorate it however you want, enjoy a truly private party, and then crash after a night of celebrating.
Here are a few questions to keep in mind while searching for the perfect rental home venue:
* Does the property already have permits to host events?
* Does your guest list require that you also rent a restroom trailer?
* What are the local noise ordinances for the area?
* If you'd like a tent, is the ground level enough for easy installation?
It's easy to search for potential wedding venues on AirBnb. First, select "16+ guests" from the initial search page. Then go under "more filters" and click the "amenities" drop-down — select "suitable for events" and you're all set.
