If you live in the United States, or are venturing here for your big day, you might be considering an Airbnb wedding venue. We’re all about it! While Airbnb properties are typically best for small gatherings—like an elopement or micro wedding—there are some homeowners who have designed their space to be perfect for events. It just takes a little searching to find them. Lucky for you, we’ve searched and searched…and searched.

In this article you will find the best Airbnb wedding venues in every state. From tiny houses fit for a cozy elopement weekend to large, jaw-dropping mansions and everything in between—this list has something for everyone.

Tips for Booking the Perfect Airbnb Wedding Venue

  • Always, always, always contact the host and inform them of your intentions for using their property before you book. There may be additional fees if you will be bringing in rentals or hosting any event larger than the maximum number of occupants.
  • If you are eloping or hosting just the amount of people “allowed,” we still recommend informing the host of your intentions. Ask if they have a photography policy, and make sure they’re alright with any alterations you intend to make to the space (i.e. moving furniture to make space for your living room ceremony, etc).
  • Keep in mind, many communities have sound ordinance rules that you must adhere to.
  • Think of an Airbnb wedding as a time to unwind, relax, and enjoy the weekend with family and friends. While we do love a great party, this isn’t the type of venue to host a raging party. If you want to get rowdy, consider taking your reception to a nearby bar.

We hope you have fun scrolling through these properties! Once you’ve found the perfect space for your big day, make sure and check out our tips for hosting an Airbnb wedding.
