Im looking at venues 45 min to an hour away from my hometown and my mother is freaking out about how inconvienient it will be for my guest. She ignores that fact that most of my family travels to this city frequently to shop, go to the casinos, concerts etc so it wont be a huge deal to got here for my wedding. Plus my Fiance family and our frinds are travelling 500+ miles to be there.

Long story short…im going to have the same issue…

My venue is about 25 minutes from my hometown, but it’s 5 and a half hours from where I live now.

My church is downtown which is 15 minutes from my hometown and then our reception is 30 minutes from downtown so 45 minutes from my hometown. The reception location is where my Fiance is from..we couldn’t find a venue close enough within our budget or wishes from my disabled mother who didn’t want to be outside in the humidty.

Our ceremony and reception will be held about 1 hour from where Fiance, I and most of his family live. His sister is coming all the way from Denmark with her husband and child so it’s about 38 hours away for them!

Our ceremony and reception are going to be 3.5-4 hours away for my family and 2.5-3 for his in the town where we went to college.  It is where we met and we wanted to be in a place with meaning for us.

Ours is a 4 hour drive….we have no family in the state we live in, so it’s out of town for every single one of our guests anyway..so we picked our favorite vacation spot, the beach!
