First, be sure to clear with the host that events are permitted on the property, even if it’s the tiniest of intimate weddings, so you can go over any house rules such as noise ordinances.
If travel is involved—particularly for overseas weddings—determine early on if you are paying for your vendors’ stay. Some couples have their photographer stay on the property to capture next-morning shots, which can be incredibly romantic. Just be sure to account for this when inviting guests so as not to exceed the Airbnb’s capacity (or beds).
If you’re having guests and they’re driving in, make sure parking is available. If not, encourage carpooling, or, if possible, arrange Ubers or car rentals for the group.
Does that cute A-frame in the secluded woods have more than one bathroom? If not, are you able to make arrangements with the host for additional accommodations if bringing guests? Definitely consider this.
If privacy is important, check with the host about neighboring properties. Additionally, does he or she also live on the Airbnb property? This can be a pro or a con, depending on your level of needs.
6. Additional Fees
When calculating cost, account for cleaning fees, taxes, and other additional (or hidden) fees. Also, for international stay, clear with the host what currency you should pay in.
Check with the Airbnb host on the mask-wearing policy while on the property. This could differ from those imposed by the country or territory. It’s always best to be respectful.
