Does anyone have experience renting their wedding venue through an Airbnb? It’s a fairly new venue that is just absolutely gorgeous. Our wedding isn’t until next August and they have not had any other weddings hosted their besides their own engagement party so no references. I’m wondering about how I would go about securing them as a venue while protecting myself. Airbnb has pretty good cancellation policies meaning not only can I cancel within 30 days but so can they. Should I be making sure I have a contract outside of Airbnb and what should be included in it? If we did make a contract with terms and an amount agreed upon for a deposit and date to pay the final amount by, how would this hold up legally? Any advice or past experiences are welcome!
