It’s your big day, and you want everything to be perfect. That means choosing the right dress, the right décor, the right music – and, if you’re organizing a destination wedding, the right wedding villa.
It all starts with that perfect location. Maybe you want to get married by that idylic strip of beach in Barbados or the Bahamas. Maybe you want to exchange vows in the classic, timeless atmosphere of Italy or France. Or maybe you want to tie the knot somewhere a little more exotic, like Indonesia or Costa Rica. Either way, we got you covered.
Next, you want to make sure your wedding villa has top-tier amenities. This includes a beautiful dining room for you and your guests, a large reception area, manicured gardens, and, of course, an awe-inspiring area for the wedding ceremony.
Lastly, you’ll want to look at the staff. Wedding villas are typically fully staffed and include private chefs, housekeeps, waiters, butlers, and more. Your Rental Escapes concierge can arrange any additional staff you may need, including photographers, DJs, makeup artists, and more.
The villas in this collection offer the perfect mix of location, amenities, and staff to create the best possible wedding experience. And your concierge is with you every step of the way to make sure that the big day, and the whole trip, is as magical as you’ve always dreamed.

This includes arranging catering, décor, entertainment, and even helping to find a local third-party wedding planner if needed.
The busier the season you want to get married in, the sooner you should book your wedding villa. For peak season, try booking 12-18 months in advance.

Regardless of how far out the wedding is, though, be sure to contact Rental Escapes and your villa specialist will find the best options for your dates.
It’s important to confirm vendor policy with the villa. While some villas allow you to use whichever vendors you want, others have vendor restrictions in place. Still, others have a preferred vendor list that you may want to stick to, especially if you are travelling. Your Rental Escapes villa specialist and concierge are happy to confirm vendor policy with you.
