Is it “accessible” for all of your guests?  Active-type weddings are great unless your grandma can’t handle it.  We are also doing a camp-type wedding, but we did quite a bit of research on accessibility and transportation options.

If it works for your guest list, go for it!  Sounds super fun.

I would like it.  I know others who would hate it (the camping part).  It just depends on your guests likes and dislikes.  I love to hike and camp.  I wouldn’t want to share a cabin really, but otherwise it sounds fun.  I have friends who hate camping and being out in nature so they’d probably dislike it.

Really just depends on your guests.  If there’s a hotel nearby I think you’d be fine.

Overall I think people would like it though.

I think it sounds fun!  Keep your guest list in mind and talk to the people closest to you.  If they’re supportive it’s not going to matter so much when cousin whoever is snippy about it.

@Harrisonlake:  personally, I’d LOVE it. I think it’s a great breakaway from the norm, and as long as the cabins are clean and are conducive to people getting ready (read: have outlets, good lighting, clean showers, etc.) I’d go for it! It’s like a mini destination wedding!

Just be sure to give guests lots of information about what they’d need to bring. Are there mattresses? Sheets? Towels? etc.

I would LOVE THIS!  And I think you’re right that if some of your guests don’t, they can drive back to a hotel.  I’d only pause if it were like 33-50%+ of your guests who wouldn’t like it….

@Harrisonlake:  I think it sounds amazing, and would totally go for it. Many of my guests were confused by our barn wedding, despite it being really popular in the wedding world, but their skepticism melted away when they got there and saw how beautiful and different the setting was. I think your wedding sounds like it would be amazing, and an inexpensive weekend getaway for those wanting to make a mini vacay of it!

I’m not super outdoorsy, so as long as these cabins have electricity and running water, sign me up!

@Harrisonlake:  As long as your older guests have no trouble walking and//or getting to the site, do what you want! If it’s “you” and you love the idea, plus it’s a money saver, then that’s a no brainer to me.

@Harrisonlake:  I live in Vancouver and I say go for it. Anyone who doesn’t want to stay at the camp can easily book a hotel in Harrison.

Are you willing to share the name of the venue?
