Lodging for Destination Weddings


Planning a destination wedding presents some unique challenges, especially when it comes to finding lodging, transportation, and entertainment for all of your guests. One of our 2009 brides (Jordan, getting married in Maui) recently shared a resource with us that we simply couldn't keep to ourselves! It's called Vacation Rental by Owner (VRBO). VRBO is a comprehensive listing of over 110,000 vacation homes and condos that are available for daily, weekly, and monthly rental all over the world. Most of the listings show photos, complete amenity lists (which are usually better and less expensive than the local hotel's offerings), ideas/links to recreational activities, and reviews by other travelers who have stayed there. The rates are usually quite reasonable, and since most rentals have a full kitchen, you can save a little money on food as well. :) So, if you're planning a destination wedding, or if you're just looking for a different kind of lodging experience on your next vacation, you'll definitely want to check out VRBO!

I have used VRBO for a few years now and have always been extremely happy with the results. A must for anyone traveling.

VRBO is a great site to comparison shop on. However, if you are looking for the best deals I would search the city you are interested in. Many niche sites specialize in Vacation Rentals such as www.FloridaGulfVacation.com.
