Whistler rental house weddings are better suited to small and intimate weddings, or as a great alternative to renting hotel rooms for getting ready.


With the rise of accommodation sites like Airbnb, VRBO, or Homeaway, renting premium, luxury accommodations has never been easier. Whistler has a huge percentage of luxury vacation homes that sit empty most of the year or are available for short term stays. Whistler rental house weddings have a lot of perks, even though they are not typical venues.

Many of the homes available for rent have all of the amenities you could need to host up to 20 guests. Large dining rooms, executive chef-approved kitchens for your caterers, 6+ bedrooms, hot tubs, saunas, pools, games rooms, large decks and of course, amazing views. Most of the homes will also have a space large enough for your ceremony, or we can choose an amazing location outdoors anywhere in Whistler.

Since you will be renting the house for a few days, your wedding celebrations can last much longer with all of your guests

Hosting an intimate wedding in Whistler also allows much more flexibility in all of your planning process.

Catering  – All of the homes will come with a full-sized kitchen, allowing you to cook all of your own meals for as long as you choose to stay. When it comes to the wedding itself, there are numerous catering companies that can help out with a fully served and plated dinner or just dropping off a buffet-style dinner. If you are feeling truly creative, you could just do a big outdoor BBQ for everyone. Since you are renting out a house, you can also buy all of the alcohol you want and serve yourselves.

Wedding Planner – A wedding planner is not needed, but can lend a lot of expertise to the area. If you are coming from out of town, a planner can help you to choose a Whistler rental house, plan decor, have welcome gifts ready for your guests, coordinate with the catering and transportation companies, etc. At the very least, they can provide amazing styling options for your ceremony and dinner.

House Options  – The sky is really the limit for hosting Whistler rental house weddings. All of the usual accommodation booking sites work well, but also check out Premium Whistler. They have a large portfolio of mansions to choose from.

We have worked in many of these homes as just a location for the wedding couples to get ready in the morning, all the way to hosting the entire event on-site. Check out some photos and plan an amazing Whistler wedding for yourself! Let us know if you have any other questions as we have lots of ideas for small weddings!
