Flipkey vacation rentals

For those of you still looking for a venue for your wedding, or maybe still planning your honeymoons, this post is for you!  Flipkey, a TripAdvisor company, is a fabulous online rental company that features over 160,000 in more than 7000 locations worldwide.  Why is this a big deal? Think about it…they’ve got rentals at venues for ANY style of bride…you could stay anywhere from a castle to a treehouse!  I love that you can search for similar types of rentals, like architecturally dynamic properties, or those featured on HGTV…heck, you can even rent celebrity homes or stay at an MTV Real World house!  For smaller weddings, your venue can double as lodging for your guests and you can even get away for bachelor and bachelorette weekends away at costs generally cheaper per person than staying at a hotel. Any deals available are specific to each owner, so it never hurts to ask…
