    I say go with your heart. It sounds like they are both great. Planning wise, and because your Fiance loves the one near you, I say go with the one in your current location. Good luck!

    I’m having my wedding in the town I grew up which is a few hours away. Its has been a little difficult to plan but it isn’t that bad. FI’s parents live in my home town but the rest of his family lives about 3 hours away. I don’t think having to drive a few hours will keep your guests from coming. If you want it in your hometown I say go for it.

    Another thing to note is that while venue #1 is a tiny bit cheaper, it’s a blank slate, and you will need to spend a lot of time and money pulling a look together. More time and money than venue #2, and it’s not where you live. So while if they were both at home, it might not be a huge deal, it’s possible it could raise the stress level of planning (esp from a distance). 

    Also, having to decorate a space will likely put venue #1 over the price of venue #2 – food for thought.

    Who is paying? If your parents are, I’d have it in the venue 1. If not, then venue 2, since your Fiance loves it.

    My husband and I came down to the same dilemma, and in the end we chose the one closer to home.  The one thing I have to offer you is that on our wedding day, my parents forgot some things and very easily were able to drive home for them!

    All that being said, it does sound like you guys are leaning towards venue #2, and you should certainly go with your hearts!

    Good luck with the choice, choosing venue is the hardest part by far!! Once that is done, you can stop to take a little breather.

    I agree with a previous poster we have found that the blank costs a lot and some venues have a lot of rules about what you can do.
