That looks gorgeous, what a great choice!  I don’t think an hour away is bad at all 🙂

Wow, that is stunning!

I wouldn’t be annoyed with a 1hour drive. Many of our guests are driving 2 hours to get to ours. However, it’s on a Saturday so they are staying at a hotel and don’t have to work in the morning. Sunday is a little trickier, but I still dont think 1 hour is bad.

Darling Husband was just the best man in a Sunday wedding that was an hour away. Yes, it was inconvenient for us. But it is what it is. Their wedding started at 3:30pm and the reception was half an hour away from the church (still an hour away from home for us). The reception was supposed to end at 11, but everyone cleared out before 10.

I don’t think the drive is an issue, but be ready for the party to empty out since it’s Sunday…people gotta get ready for the week.

HOLY SMOKES that venue is gorgeous! I say go for it but make sure the party ends at a decent time or go for a 3 day weekend to have your wedding on… That’s all I can suggest but I would definately book that venue!!!

Wouldn’t be an issue for me! And if it starts at 3 your wedding will still be over and allow people to drive the hour home before the time they’d normally go to sleep (assuming your guests don’t go to sleep at 8).

I  don’t think an hour away is bad at all. And my wedding is on a Sunday, too! It was easiest because I have people flying in on Saturday and leaving Monday so all they have to take is one day off versus a couple, plus I get a discount of $5 per head since it’s on Sunday which adds up to…well, a lot saved, lol.

It’s fine. I’m in the same boat as you. Our wedding is about an hour and a half away for most of our family and on a Sunday. No one has complained and we had about 97% of our guests RSVP yes. Your venue is beautiful and it looks worth the drive.
