Where is your ceremony, if you have your ceremony near the reception area than that drive might not be so bad because people will be in the Galveston area longer.

An hour drive to a wedding isn’t really a big deal. Do they expect it to be in there back yard? I mean some people will be closer and some won’t

Not at all…an hour drive is not too much to ask of your guests.  And 8 pm is perfectly early enough to drive home.

I don’t think an hour drive is bad at all, and honestly someone’s always going to be upset about something. If you love the venue and its in your price range go for it! Maybe you can have the ceremony and reception in the same venue to make it even easier?

I don’t think an hour drive is unreasonable. Our venue is about an hour away from some of my family and friends. You can’t please everyone and I would think though that people would glady drive an hour to see you get married.

An hour would make our families cheer! We are getting married here in Austin, but most of his family is in Tennessee (15 hour drive) and mine is overseas (24 hours of flying). If it fits your budget and idea of a wedding, I say go for it!

I don’t think that an hour drive is too far at all and you are ending at a decent time so everyone will be able to get home at a decent time! I say ignore the comments!!!!

WOW that is GORGEOUS!!!!!!

I don’t think it’s too far! I was just in a wedding where they got married 6 hours away from our home town on saturday and then had a reception 2 hours away in the opposite direction of our home town on sunday.

So an hour would have been wonderful!

I’m assuming no one will be staying in hotels that Sunday night? Could you provide some as an option? I honestly get more annoyed if the church, hotel and reception location are all far away from each other, I never care how far away the wedding is from me. And an hour isn’t bad at all.

That looks gorgeous! There may be some guests who leave early, but it’s not a big deal. This sounds very reasonable and nice!
