    It may be harder for people to travel anywhere (even if it’s only 2 hours) on a Friday night. If most of your guests work a traditional workweek, it’s a lot easier to do a drive (even if it means it’s a longer drive) on a Saturday.

    If you really love the place in your hometown, and it’s something you’ve pictured being a part of your day, then don’t let go of that unless you’re really comfortable with it. The people that care about you will do whatever they can to make it regardless of where you have it.

    If it was me, I would probably try to find a venue that is available on a Saturday in your current city. I just booked my venue about 5 months out from our wedding date (which is in peak wedding season in our area), and we still had 5-10 choices of the 30 or so places we contacted. So you never know! 

    Good luck!

    @futurejhart:  How many people do you have? Have you checked out 2941? I had my wedding there and it’s gorgeous. It’s in Falls Chruch and maybe more convenient for your guests.
