After picking your destination wedding location, it’s time to decide on a venue for your wedding events. Most couples will opt for a traditional venue for their ceremony and reception, while setting up accommodations for their guests at nearby hotels or resorts. While this works just fine and is the right option for some couples, there is a simpler, more streamlined option. You might want to consider renting a vacation villa for your destination wedding and/or honeymoon! They offer the privacy that a hotel lacks and allow you to hold all W-Day events in one place – making the logistics as easy as pie. They can also be big, really, really big; meaning you often have the option to host all or most of your guests at the villa.

Odds are, you’ve heard of TripAdvisor, but did you know they have a division of the company entirely dedicated to vacation rentals? TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals has over 800,000 rental properties in more than 190 countries worldwide. The site is a one-stop-shop for couples to research, book and securely pay for a vacation villa or rental for their destination wedding or honeymoon. Renting a private home comes with perks like open living spaces, fully equipped kitchens, infinity pools and personal chefs. Going the rental route can also be more cost effective for you and your guests. With homes that can sleep upwards of 20 people, that can be a great way to disperse cost. 

Another aspect that’s unique to renting a vacation property from TripAdvisor is their Peace of Mind guarantee, which protects bookings and payments made through their secure payment platform. By booking through TripAdvisor’s payment platform, you can ensure your payment is secure. The Peace of Mind guarantee also means that if you have any issues with your rental property, you can contact TA within 24-hours of checking in and they will be there to help with whatever you may need.

If you’re interested, visit to search city-center studios, beachside villas, mountain cabins, castles and even tree houses. You can quickly narrow down your search by filtering their 800K+ properties by destination and amenities (i.e. Wi-Fi, parking, type of view, private chef etc.). Once you’ve found some rentals you’re interested in, you can see travel stories, trip suggestions, attractions, restaurants and lots of other helpful information by former TripAdvisor travelers. Renting a vacation villa or property for your destination wedding or honeymoon might not be for everyone, but it’s a great alternative to a traditional hotel or resort stay. We’ve picked six swanky options from the TripAdvisor Vacation Rentals sites, so click “more photos” above to see a few of the many options.
