mine is almost 45 min away. its kind of stressful but i don’t think its a big deal…. i expect some people will opt out of the ceremony because the ceremony is out of the way.

I don’t think its too far. I’ve been to weddings where the reception is up to 40 minutes away. Just make sure you schedule the start and end times to give guests the opportunity to make it out there. Also, you may want to consider some sort of mass transportation if there is going to be a lot of drinking, like a trolley or charter bus.

I personally would be a little ticked if I had to drive any further than 30 minutes, so I think you are fine.

My ceremony and reception locations are about an hour away from each other. We’re going to hire a shuttle bus or something like that to move people from one place to the other so that they don’t have to drive.
