To start with, it is important to consider the location of where you will begin your wedding day journey. It is usual for the couple to prepare for the wedding separately, although in recent times this tradition has been changed up to sharing luxury accommodation, with separate areas for the groom and his posse and the bride and her bridesmaids or if eloping you may be sharing the same space which means a much more intimate setting.
For photographic consideration, make sure to pick accommodation or a location for the ‘before the wedding’ part of the day that is beautiful and aesthetic. Large windows with great light are a bonus, and a large lawn or pretty outdoor setting and balconies are all fantastic spaces to enjoy your pre-wedding preparation.
Airbnbs have become increasingly popular as pre-wedding venues where the whole family can relax and have the space they need to prepare, spread out and also have room for hair/makeup artists to work their magic.
You can also use an Airbnb to host the next day’s get-together, which is becoming popular, with BBQs or celebration drinks continuing to flow!
It is also a great idea to suggest to your guests the option to share Airbnb or other accommodation when travelling from out of town – having your favourite people come together to celebrate your love and to get to know one another is a wonderful bonus of a wedding with family and friends involved.
For smaller, more intimate weddings, the accommodation that you choose is just as important as it is where you will spend significant time preparing, celebrating and creating memories that will last a lifetime.
Make the very most of this day by booking your location where you will begin your wedding journey, well in advance of the wedding and with a photographer in mind as well as who will be with you.
