Without knowing the area, I’d say it’s not awful to do.  9kms (so roughly 5 miles, right?) isn’t that much more to travel, especially if people are going to be driving.  You also have to trust your guest’s judgment that they won’t drive drunk, and urge your bartender to keep an eye out for people who may be over-indulging, especially towards the end of the reception (we’re cutting our bar off 30 minutes before the event ends to somewhat stop a bit of the drinking).

Will you incur new invitation costs, or have those not been printed yet?  I’m guessing the Save-The-Date Cards don’t have the exact venue on them, right? 

If you do end up changing the venue, I’d make sure you tell each person individually to make sure every knows that the venue has been changed.

@Bears-bub:  I think you need to call everyone, honestly, and sooner rather than later. People may still be looking at accomodations and there may be better places for them to book closer to the new venue.
