Whether you’re on the hunt for breathtaking locations or searching for your dream photographer to capture those moments, here are my Airbnb elopement tips to make your special day an unforgettable celebration.

Here are 7 steps to planning the perfect Airbnb elopement in 2024:

1. Choose the perfect Airbnb location:

Getting the right Airbnb is essential to setting the tone of your elopement. 

You want to look for places that resonate with your personal style and story. Consider the backdrop it provides, the amenities available, and its ability to accommodate any guests if you’re having them (including your furbabies!).

Think about whether you want a cozy mountain cabin, a chic urban loft, or a beachfront cottage. The location should not only be beautiful but also meaningful to you as a couple.

As a destination elopement photographer, I can help suggest locations that offer stunning natural scenery and are pet-friendly.

2. Communicate with your host: 

When it comes to planning your elopement at an Airbnb, it’s important to have a chat with your host. You’ll want to fill them in on your elopement plans, because they might have some awesome ideas and insights for you!

It’s also important to note that not all airbnbs allow post-celebration gatherings or dinners due to restrictions on noise and parking. Please always be upfront to your hosts before booking your stay and what you intend on doing there.

in my experience, most hosts are happy to host such a happy celebration and may even give you some perks! After all, they know the area well – so they might be able to give you tips on the perfect spot on the property.

3. Make the Airbnb your own:

When it comes to your elopement, the little details in your decor can make a huge difference. you don’t need a ton of stuff to make your Airbnb feel like it’s truly yours for the day.

It’s all about those personal touches – maybe some fairy lights, your favorite flowers, or a couple of cool, quirky items that scream ‘you.’ Think about a theme or color scheme that tells your story or shows you sharing your favorite activity together in protected place from the elements.

4. Include your furry companions:

As a pet-friendly elopement photographer, I’m all about bringing along your fur babies for the adventure!

Your pets are family, and including them in your elopement can add a special touch to your celebration.

When planning, it’s essential to consider their needs:

  • Is the Airbnb safe and comfortable for them?
  • Are there nearby areas for walks and play?
  • Will the climate and environment at the Airbnb be suitable for your pets?
  • How will your pets be involved in the ceremony and throughout the day?

As someone experienced in veterinary medicine, I can provide advice on how to keep your pets happy and safe during your elopement. And as a photographer, I’m well-versed in how to get your pets involved in the ceremony and photoshoot in meaningful ways.

5. Embracing Local Experiences and Vendors

As you plan your dreamy Airbnb elopement in 2024, don’t forget to sprinkle in a bit of that local charm! Not only is it a great way to add heaps of authenticity to your big day, but it’s a great way to support the community around your chosen spot.

  • Do a pre-wedding visit and scout your Airbnb location in advance for hidden gems.
  • If you’re in an area known for its vineyards, breweries, or distilleries, consider hosting a tasting session as part of your celebration.
  • Use native flowers and local decor styles to enhance your venue.
  • Offer guests handcrafted keepsakes from local artisans.
