- Wedding: May 2012
I’ve fallen in love with a ceremony and reception venue that is an hour and a half away from where the majority of the guests live. My parents think it’s inapporpriate to ask guests to travel that far, and in particular, unfair to ask the 10% of out of state guests to travel even further than anticipated. In addition, they worry about guests traveling after providing an open bar.
I absolutely want to be considerate of my guests and would hate to inconvenience them… however, now that I have discovered this perfect venue, I can’t imagine marrying anywhere else.
I certainly understand where my parents are coming from, but at the same time, they are not contributing to the wedding in any way – my fiance and I are paying for everything entirely. My parents have now said that if I do choose this venue then I should charter a bus to take guests to and from the wedding. >.<
Is it really that bad to ask guests to drive an hour and a half away?
