    Our venue is only about a 15-20 minute drive from where we live so the location was definitely a factor in us booking it.

    My dream wedding destination is Spencer’s at the Waterfront, but it’s so far away from where I live. It takes one hour to get there, and I’m afraid that people will complain about this destination choice. I am worried that I will drive people crazy for such a magnificent place. Is a one hour away destination okay for a wedding?

    Everything is all in one spot! Ceremony, cocktail hour in the Theater and Reception in the grand ball room.

    The wedding is in California, we live in WA state, many of our friends have to travel from here, my family lives in Idaho and will also have to travel, FI’s family and childhood friends all live within 20mins of the wedding.

    My venue is about 30-45 minutes away but it’s well worth it! We won our venue so people are just going to have to deal with it (though I haven’t heard any complaints so far)! When I first started planning my wedding, I wanted the wedding in Dallas (for more competitive pricing) which is about 90 minutes to a 2 hour drive. People who love you and want to be there for you WILL be there.

    Haha my reception location is literally in my neighborhood. I live in a gated neighborhood with a country club so it’s literally just around the corner from my house! My ceremony is at its ‘sister club” which is less than three miles away.

    Our venue is less than 8 miles from our house.  The ceremony, reception and hotel rooms are all in one location, super easy.

    Its all in the same hayfield! The ceremony is ‘under the pines’ and the reception is in the middle of the field.

    A few steps from one to the other. All on the Family Farm. I am so antsy…gah!
