    @Teacher2Be:  Do what is going to make you and your guests the most comfortable. I’ve only attended one wedding where I didn’t have to travel to the recption. It was fine, we always just chip in and pay for gas and buy the dd a nice bottle.

    I don’t think a short drive is a big deal at all. I’ve been to plenty of wedding where the ceremony and reception are in different locations and often a few hours apart.

    Well, we’re having our ceremony at a different venue than the reception (I actually asked this very question too).  While my fmil does not like the idea, it’s pretty much the norm.  And the reception venue is literally a 4 minute drive away (I am renting a micro-bus/shuttle for guests who didn’t arrive to the ceremony n a car).

    No way.  My reception was 30 minutes away from my ceremony spot and we didn’t have a single complaint, and my church was packed!

    As I am thinking about it, I don’t think I have ever been to a wedding where the reception was at the same place. I have been to some that are walking distance, and some that are driving. A couple have even been in seperate towns! But I almost expect it to be in different places because I don’t know any better.

    (p.s. my ceremony and reception are about 5 minutes (driving) from each other).
