Whether you're planning a destination getaway or a simple hometown affair, renting a vacation condominium for your wedding weekend can be an awesome idea. Here are three reasons you might want to consider one for your wedding.
1. Home Base Away From Home
Whether or not you live in the town you'll be getting married, it can be helpful to have a central location for family, friends, and out-of-towners to congregate before and after the big day. You could rent a vacation condominium just for your wedding party, for parents and immediate family members, or for a few places for guests from out of town.
Having a vacation rental means that these folks won't be crowding into your house or apartment in the days leading up to your event. It also means you can have a stress-free space on the night before and morning of your wedding to get ready and even take some preparation photos.
2. A Convenient Retreat and Regrouping Center
Maybe there is a gap of time between the ceremony and reception. Perhaps the younger wedding party members like ring bearer or flower girl need to rest between all the photos and walking down the aisle. Or maybe the newlyweds would like to have a few quiet moments to themselves in the middle of the hubbub to simply enjoy their day together.
Having a vacation condominium for these quiet times can make a world of difference in an otherwise busy day. If you can book one near your venue, you have a convenient place to regroup amidst a tight schedule. Minor fashion emergencies or forgotten items can also be mended quickly if you have this place nearby where you can quickly duck out of sight.
Out-of-town guests, especially those with small children, may also appreciate having another location to retreat to when needed. Having kids in your wedding is both charming and unpredictable, but giving them a safe space to blow off steam is a smart idea that everyone can appreciate.
3. The Celebration Continues
As people congregate in the days leading up to your wedding for preparations and rehearsals, they will revel in the chance to catch up with each other and share your joy. While a restaurant or hotel is a fun place to gather, eventually everyone will break up and return to their own rooms. In a vacation rental condominium, they can hang around the table as long as they like.
The same is true for the days after your event. You and your new spouse may be bidding adieu as you travel on toward a honeymoon destination, but those family and friends left behind may want to continue the party you started. A vacation rental allows them space and freedom to do that even after the main event has finished.
