Exclusive home exchanges with IVHE
For the Father of the Bride

As the father of the bride, you are not only giving up your daughter at the alter,  you are also giving up a sizable amount of cash. The venue, the ceremony expenses, the reception expenses, ca-ching, ca-ching.

 You’ve made your vacation home available to guests through the IVHE- Home exchange community on many occasions. The credits have been building up in your account.  Why not apply them to a luxury wedding venue for your daughter’s wedding. And save money. Not a member? Find out how you can save thousands with IVHE vacation home exchange.

Depending on the size of your wedding party, an IVHE luxury home, boutique hotel, resort property, or villa may be ideal for both the ceremony and the reception.

Let’s say you did a property search on IVHE’s web site and found this wonderful boutique hotel in Devon, England ( #0591).   It may or may not be close to home, but what a fabulous place for a wedding. With 12 double-bed units and four junior suites, it can accommodate the wedding party, parents, grandparents, and a few special guests – 32 total. It has a gorgeous garden for an outdoor ceremony and excellent space for a fun-filled reception.

 The credits come from your IVHE account, and nothing comes from your wallet.

Huddle with the bride and groom about holding the wedding close to home, at a nearby but different kind of location. If you live in the city, a nice bucolic setting would be a charming change of pace. Or, if you live in a small or rural town, holding the ceremony in or near a big city may be just the ticket. Family and friends can take advantage of cultural and entertainment events they can’t find at home.  

Home Exchange Property #0670: USA, Florida (near Miami)

If you really want something different, you and the soon-to-be newly weds may want to consider a destination wedding – a romantic spot where a wedding and a vacation for the wedding party can be rolled into one. Smaller weddings work best here. These two properties are among several other extraordinary IVHE listings with wedding potential:

Home Exchange Property #0363: India, Goa, Majorda

Exclusive home swap with IVHE
For over 400 years, until 1961, Goa was a Portuguese province. The European cultural influence is everywhere from its architecture to its Christian churches to its old colonial homes such as this -- Vivenda dos Palhacos in the village of Majorda. Completely renovated and totally charming, Vivenda dos Palhacos is off the beaten path yet within walking distance of a peaceful beach fringed with palm trees -- the longest beach in Goa. Sunsets over the ocean here are amazing.

Luxury home swaps with IVHE
AMANSALA is set on a stunning part of the beach in Tulum, Mexico, on the Yucatan Peninsula. Its village-like setting consists of 24 spacious, well designed beachfront cabanas, as well as a selection of beautiful garden cabanas; ideal for a tropical wedding or personal getaway.

IVHE offers a travel research service to Platinum Members that,  either directly or through the property host,  can put you in contact with local wedding coordinators and suppliers.

Honeymoon Suite

If the kids have opted for a modest wedding close to home, you can still apply your IVHE credits toward something fabulous – a stay at an exciting location as a honeymoon gift.
Luxury Home Exchange with IVHE
Any amount of credits can be used by family or friends to choose any home exchange property the credits will buy. But you, as the IVHE member,  have to request the exchange, let the host know and assure the host that your guests will treat their property like you would, as you would be responsible at all times.

Membership in IVHE as a wedding gift

In lieu of a splashy wedding,  or a honeymoon to an exotic place, you can give the newly weds a membership in IVHE as a wedding gift.  You will receive five (5) free credits for generating a new member (a referral ) worth $500 of vacation home exchange time, and your daughter and whatzizname also receive five (5) credits to launch their own IVHE-home exchange experience. When they make their  first trade, you will get another bonus of 50 percent of  the trade’s credit value.
