Wedding Vacation Rentals

By Laura Hoot

So, you said "Yes." Congrats! That was the easy part. (We hope.) Now, it's time for the hard part: planning your actual wedding day. How much money will you spend? What food will you serve? Will you invite your childhood friend who you haven't talked to in ages -- where did you stash her address? Will you let the DJ play "the Chicken Dance?"  (We hope not.)

wedding checklistOkay, slow down. Let's start at the beginning -- Where will you tie the knot? Just like wedding dresses, wedding venues come in all shapes and sizes, and are the stuff of great headaches. Liven up the venue search with wedding vacation rentals - a refreshing, memorable alternative to bland hotels and event centers. They're available throughout the year in destinations close to home and far-flung.

Luxury yachts, oceanfront mansions, castles, ranch houses, mountain cabins - whether your wedding is big or small, fantastic or frugal, traditional or Middle Earth themed, it's easy to say "I do" to a  wedding vacation rental - a beautiful and sprawling private estate that can accommodate your nuptials, and also double as great place to stay for the couple or even the whole wedding party.

Oh, and on a side note, if you are going with a Lord of the Rings theme, make sure the ceremony is shorter than that scene where Frodo says goodbye to all his pals.
