16 Celebrity Homes and Mansions You Can Rent for Your Wedding or Honeymoon
Selecting a location for your wedding or honeymoon is one of the most exciting parts of the planning experience. After all, the venue inherently sets the vibe for the entire celebration. So, how do you find the perfect setting? When it comes to your big day, just about anything goes. You can swap vows at a religious space, your favorite winery, a tropical seascape, City Hall, or your backyard. But if you're looking for a location that's truly out of the box, you can actually rent a celebrity home for your wedding (or even your honeymoon).
Quite a few A-listers share their properties on home rental sites like Airbnb and Vrbo, meaning you can reserve them for special occasions. Of course, as with all rental services, it's important to ensure your intended property allows events and can accommodate your guest list size. (And if not, you can always stay at one of these super-cool properties and do the legalities at a nearby location.) Fine print aside, renting a famous house or mansion for your wedding is perfect if you're a pop-culture enthusiast, or if you're simply looking for a unique venue to say your "I dos." To help you find the perfect home away from home, we've rounded up 16 celebrity houses, mansions and villas you can rent for your wedding.
