Budget Wedding Venues

Think you're more likely to run into the Loch Ness Monster than a cheap wedding venue? If you're searching for venues in all the wrong places, you're on to something there. But beyond the tourist-drenched hotels and stuffy reception halls is a bright, affordable horizon: wedding vacation rentals. HomeAway has a great selection of budget wedding venues for you to peruse, as well as tips for making your special day an affordable one. Get married on a mountain, at a farm, or right by the water (say "hi" to Nessy for us).

Why wedding vacation rentals are affordable

  • You can house the couple or the whole wedding party at the venue (for a weekend, week, or longer), splitting up the cost between your group.
  • Most wedding-friendly vacation rentals offer up no-nonsense, affordable nightly rates.
  • You can handpick your vendors, instead of being tied down to expensive ones required by more "professional" venues.
  • You can use amenities like a full, gourmet kitchen (prepare your own food for your guests) or a hot tub (pre or post-wedding relaxation) for free.
  • Since vacation rentals are booked for days at a time, you don't have to pay for rehearsal time, ceremony time, or reception time.
