Hello ladies! We are working on finding a reception venue, and I’m struggling a bit. We know that we want to have the ceremony at our church in downtown Raleigh, so that either means that we have to use a reception venue that is also downtown (the ideal option), or deal with a bit of a drive.
Places in Durham, Wake Forest, etc. will all be a 30 minute drive. There are a few options that would be about a 20-25 minute drive, but they are not ideal venues.
My question is….how far is too far? How far would you be willing to drive to a reception in this area (without getting really irritated)? We will have a lot of guests from out of town, so I really wanted to keep everything in downtown Raleigh, but I’m just not sure that’s going to be possible since most of the venues are either too small or not available on the dates we are looking at.
