    I think there’s a couple things to look at. Do you have any handicapped/hard of walking guests? Both options seem pretty difficult for them. Is the second option available by car as well? Some people aren’t comfortable in boats, can’t swim, etc.

    Another thing to consider is the weather.  Do you have a second option at each venue if the weather is rainy, super windy, etc?  If so, what does that option look like?  Also, you might want to consider this for transportation issues as well.  I don’t know that I’d want to be on a boat in a storm. 

    Do you have pics of the venues to share with the Bees?

    @Lexsy:Both options are tricky. i can understand not wanting to be on a boat inthe rain, I would not want to be on a bus for 45 minutes either. The hills pose a problem as well.

    I think pictures would help too but without pictures I would pick Option B.  I think being closer and more accessible brought me to this conclusion.

    Honestly, I think 45 minutes either direction is too far. Take the Italian traffic into consideration and it could easily be an hour either direction. It’s too long to travel for a 30 minute ceremony.

    I’d either keep looking for a closer option or go for the lemon garden (which sound adorable). Is there no ceremony location at your reception venue?

    @Lexsy – Thanks for responding.  Such a tough decision.  As much as I love the castle, I think I’ll have to go with the lemon garden.  The garden will be beautiful with your extra touches.  Best wishes!!
