    niagra has plenty of hotels that people can book their own if they want. I’ve been on that drive between toronto & niagra. I think it’s a very easy drive for a wedding.

    @Fanciful:  +1, the distance I’d travel depends on my relationship with the people. It also depends on my finances (sadly, my parents and I couldn’t afford my cousin’s Destination Wedding 10 years ago). However, also living about an hour or so outside of Niagara, I would totally make that trip! Plus, Fiance and I would probably buy a Groupon or something for a hotel to save some cash Wink

    @PositiveThinking:  Some hotels do put you on the hook for rooms that don’t get booked, so I would do some research.

    @PositiveThinking:  Ultimately, I think you know your guests the best. You said your familiy would travel an hour for other weddings, so that gives you some indication. In addition, many bees live in different parts of the country where an hour could mean a trek or an hour could just mean their morning commute, so our various opinions and sense of time might not be the same as those of your guests. I would take our opinions over what you’ve seen your guests do. Actions (and history) speak loud! Haha, hope this was helpful.

    @PositiveThinking:  You asked about how long I would travel for a wedding/vow renewal.  I was not saying you shouldn’t have a vow renewal–merely that those were two different questions.

    For a vow renewal, I would probably not travel more than an hour, unless it was a member of my immediate family.

    @PositiveThinking:  I think for a vow renewal, I would travel less far unless the couple in question was military, etc and didn’t have an actual wedding the first time.

    So, for a wedding: around 2 hours w/o spending the night, 12+ hours to spend the night

    Vow renewal (true vow renewal w/ previous wedding): around an hour, hour and a half w/o spending the night, probably wouldn’t spend the night unless it was for my parents, etc.
