EnglishIt’s been a weird year and it’s even weirder if you’re planning a wedding during these crazy times. With so many venues closed due to the coronavirus, couples everywhere are starting to think outside the box when it comes to planning their big day. Of course, this means thinking of ways to keep everyone safe and socially distant during the event and possibly even cutting down the guest list to just close family and friends. The one bonus of having a smaller guest list (aside from the obvious one — cost) is the wide array of venue options available for smaller gatherings. Our new favorite trend is people using gorgeous Airbnbs as wedding venues for their smaller events.
Airbnb is full of gorgeous getaways that double as wedding venues. To make your wedding planning a little easier, we’ve highlighted the best and most beautiful Airbnb wedding venues below.
