@Owl_Doctor:  First of all, three hours is NOT that far away. I drove to a wedding four hours away and did not need a hotel. Unless you plan on doing a late ceremony where people might be too tired to drive, I don’t think this would be an issue. And I think that people who really want to come will come regardless.

 

Second, you say you don’t have much time to plan. I will say that planning a backyard wedding would usually take more of your time because it’s just you and your FI/family planning…no professional help that you’d get at a venue. Although, having the reception at a banquet hall does help with having less DIY things.

 

I think what it comes down to is this…years later when you look back on your wedding, what will be more important to you? Will it be more important that you got married in a place that is sentimental and meaningful to you? Or will it be more important that you don’t lose a few guests who may not be able/willing to make the 3 hour drive?
