    Our reception venue was a 30 minute drive away.  We had a Catholic ceremony, so we had no choice about ceremony venue.  Our options for reception venue nearby weren’t that appealing, plus there was a time gap between ceremony and reception, so we opted for the semi-long drive.  I think more than a half hour drive would have been a lot to ask of our guests though.

    I voted for ‘as long as it takes’ but I do appreciate it when I’ve been guest where there wasn’t a long drive involved. Our ceremony location is 10 minutes away from our reception location.

    Ethics say no longer than 30 minutes in between ceremony and receptio location, but I have driven further.

    30 minutes tops. After that even I’d be getting annoyed so you can imagine how the guests would feelXD

    I would say maybe thirty minutes. I think the shuttle is a great idea, I would definitely appreciate that as a guest.

    25 minutes isn’t too bad. I’ve done it as a guest and didn’t think much of it.
