What’s Like An Airbnb For Elopements? (2024)


Event venues on Peerspace typically cost $50 — $350 per hour.

Looking for an Airbnb for elopements? We can’t blame you; typical weddings can seem extremely stuffy and undesirable to many couples. If you’re planning an elopement, then you may already be bucking the traditions. After all, wedding planners, event halls, the band, the cuisine, and flowers all typically add up to the cost of a starter house for one party. So if you don’t want to go the traditional wedding route, perhaps we can answer your question of what’s like an Airbnb for elopements.

Whatever your needs, Peerspace is the best option for planning your elopement event. Peerspace offers you access to venues in thousands of towns and cities across North America and beyond. And Peerspace is the most cost-effective option because venue rentals are by the hour rather than in 24-hour blocks, like with Airbnb.

With Peerspace, you only pay for the time that you use, making it a practical choice. Also, each venue’s listing includes detailed descriptions and lots of pictures. Each venue is managed by a local host who is always available with fast responses to your questions. We’ll get into all the details ahead with our complete guide on what’s like an Airbnb for elopements.

First of all, what’s an elopement?

So what exactly comprises an elopement? While it varies based on the couple and their desires, an elopement is when a couple marries without all their family and friends witnessing their nuptials in a formal setting.

Some couples invite lots of friends and/or family to celebrate with them. Others prefer the elopement to include just the two of them, the officiant and a witness. What makes an elopement special is that it’s exactly what the betrothed couple wants, minus the common wedding traditions we expect.

If a Justice of the Peace at the County Court is a better option for you, you can also throw a different kind of party to celebrate your union. Luckily, this is Peerspace’s forte, providing creative people with creative spaces!
