booking an airbnb for your asheville elopement allows you to get ready, celebrate, or even hold your ceremony in a super cute and unique location! the asheville area offers some super cool airbnbs, ranging from tiny house a-frames to airstreams to a luxury treehouse! i’m going to be sharing 10 unique airbnbs for your asheville elopement!
booking an airbnb for your elopement gives you a unique space that fits your personality where you can get ready, host guests, hold a reception or post-ceremony celebration, or even have your ceremony in! you can find places that are more boho, more light and bright, some with a cabin vibe. any aesthetic or style that you love or are planning your elopement around, you’re sure to find an airbnb that fits that look.
when booking an airbnb, you should to pay attention to the host’s rules for the property. some don’t allow parties or events, but it never hurts to message the host and explain your situation! i’m sure many are more than happy to bend their rules for your elopement day.
also watch out for the amount of rooms, beds, and guests that the airbnb holds. if it’s just you and your partner, you may want separate rooms to get ready in. and i’m sure this is obvious, but make sure you’ve got enough space for any guests who may be staying with you!
another thing to consider is the amount of natural light in the rental. a lot of people won’t pay much attention to this, but for photos it’s so important!!! natural light makes getting beautiful images so much easier. you and your photographer will want to avoid the yellow tint that often comes with flash, and having bright windows will allow you to avoid that! so look out for places with big windows!
