Getting married in Lake Tahoe? Congrats! Lake Tahoe serves as a very popular destination wedding location, which is no surprise if you think about it. Gorgeous scenery making for memorable photos for years to come and plenty of fabulous vendors with no lack of venues. However, traveling for a wedding can add a whole extra layer of coordination. Where to stay is one of them. So many couples think booking a hotel is their only affordable option. However, booking a vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe is not only affordable, but it also comes with extra perks. Let’s look at the reasons!
1.) You have space for all things wedding! Lets face it: Weddings involve a lot of stuff. There are the favors, the makeup, the flower girl outfits, ring bearer pillows, the rings, the dresses, the tuxes, the something borrowed and the something blue. There is A LOT to keep track of. When you book a vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe, you have space and storage for all those things. Of course you have to deal with getting them there, but once you arrive, you can safely tuck the items away in a closet or spare bedroom and not feel claustrophobic or wonder where everything is at. Not to mention, when booking vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe, you don’t have to worry about a cleaning crew coming through every single day and moving your things around, which means you know exactly where everything is at.
2.) Booking a hotel may seem like a money saver at first, but in reality, a lot of our South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals have similar hotel rates WITH all the amenities of home. Things like valet parking, laundering services and eating out for every meal can add up. When you book a vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe, you get to save on all those costs.
3.) You can bring hair and makeup to you! Cramming the entire group into a salon or a hotel room can feel cramped, overwhelming and stressful. With so many great local businesses willing to travel to where the wedding party is staying, you can spread out through the house as well as take advantage of the best spot that has natural lighting. You can even get ready out on the deck or in the yard if it is nice enough! If these types of amenities are important, be sure to verbalize this when booking your South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals. When we know what exactly you are looking for, we can recommend what property is the best match for you.
4.) You have more options for your bridal party. With so many of our South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals ranging in size, you can book a sweet little cabin for you and your partner OR a huge house for the entire crew. However, a private home for just the two of you is another reason why booking a home over a hotel room is nice. When everyone is staying at the same hotel, people know where you are at, which means a high chance of unwanted visitors when you just need to relax the most. Also, if you are helping to cover the costs for family members or the bridal party, one home is likely cheaper than multiple hotel rooms. Plus it offers the people traveling for your vows the option to save on eating out and other travel costs if they need to.
5.) It is a built in honey moon! If you are postponing your tropical, international honey moon as so many couples are doing these days, you can take an extra few days after the wedding and just relax before packing up and heading back.
