Getting married in Lake Tahoe? While Lake Tahoe vacation rentals are not permitted to host weddings in California, there are still several reasons why you should choose one as your Lake Tahoe accommodation instead of a hotel. If you were on the fence and not sure which way to go, read on!
Destination weddings factor in a lot more details and planning than a wedding in your home town. Sure they both take a year or so of planning and both are very detail oriented. The big difference is that with a home town wedding, if you forget something you can send someone to go grab the item last second. When your wedding is a destination wedding, you have to pack everything with you, travel with it and then keep it organized in the place you are staying. With a vacation rental, you have no shortage of storage and space. With a hotel room, your space is limited.
Destination weddings are hectic. There are SO many activities happening. Running around meeting with vendors, venue walk throughs, appointments, rehearsal dinners and entertaining guests and wedding party. When you stay in a hotel, everyone knows your room number and can therefore stop by at any time. Even that much needed few minutes of quiet in between running around. When you stay at a Lake Tahoe vacation rental, you can limit who and how many people know where you will be staying and therefore control the amount of last second visitors.
3.) Better Sleep
During such a big life moment, you need your rest. When you stay in a hotel, especially a casino, quiet is not always on your side. After all, you have no control over who you share a wall with. It could be a crying baby, loud college students who are just in town to party or that obnoxiously loud snorer. When you stay in a vacation rental in Lake Tahoe, you set the parameters and control your sleep surroundings allowing you that 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep.
Within reason and compliance of the rental agreement of course! Want to spend some quality one on one time with your bridal party before the big day? Have them over for a low key dinner. Want your hair stylist, airbrush tanner and airbrush makeup artist to come to you? When you stay in a home for rent in Lake Tahoe, you have the space to accommodate all of them. As well as room for the photographer to capture those much loved getting ready photos on the big day.
5.) Save Money
Vacation rentals sometimes seem like more money up front, but in the long run, they either save you money or even out and you get more bang for your buck. The thank you dinner for the bridal party mentioned above? You can cook in an actual kitchen and not spend hundreds of dollars (not including tip) at a restaurant. The washer and dryer ensures you can clean your clothes on your timeline and not have to pay the hotel or resort to do it for you. You get to skip the valet parking (and tip every time you come and go) and park in a driveway.
