@misss0901:  I actually got married in Bansalem, PA (celebrations weddings), and all of my guests had to travel atleast 2 hrs, my husabnds size was from York, pa, and most of my family was from NJ.  So i do not think that is far at all!.. where in lancaster were you guys looking?

I think if you push it up, it’s okay.  The guests can choose to drive home if it ends around 8 or 9 or so, or they can stay overnight if they want to drink!

@misss0901:  I would absolutely travel 90 mins! That doesn’t sound far to me at all.

@misss0901:  I would get a hotel room if I were faced with a 90 minute drive after the end of a reception. Either that, or I would be one of your guests leaving early.

@misss0901:  I’m going to a wedding in 2 weeks 2 hours away and I’ll be staying overnight. I’m not particularly close to the bride but I wanted to meet up with a couple of friends I haven’t seen in a while 🙂

90 mins= totally okay.

90 minutes is nothing. Not a big deal for me at all.

I feel like I more often than not wind up traveling half a country away for weddings so I would gladly travel 1.5 hrs!

Lancaster Co is gorgeous, btw.  You would have amazing rustic barn photos!

In April my husband and I will be travelling to his niece’s wedding.  It’s 600 miles away but this distance is really no problem. We will be staying near the wedding venue on the night before and the evening of the wedding.

I’m the outcast here. I feel 90 minutes is too far.

I have travelled 6+ hours to attend weddings before.  You get married where you want.   We travel bc half our family lives about 6 hours away… so no matter where we get married, some of our guests will have a decent road trip ahead of them.  Nothing I can do about that.

An hour and a half is not far.  I would do that drive on a saturday easily just to go into the city for the day… it’s really not that long…

Hell, I travelled 8 hours with Laryngitis and a burning throat in a car with my Mother-In-Law to attend my SIL’s bachelorette/shower where everyone was speaking French the entire time (which I don’t understand).  I’ve also travelled that far to attend showers for my FI’s cousins etc. 

If you care about someone, it shouldn’t matter if you have to sit in the car for a while.  What’s an hour and a half out of your life to show someone you support them and care about them??

I am going to a wedding 6+ hours away next week, so 90 minutes is nothing!

Also I live in Chester County, so I can vouch that your guests will have a gorgeous drive out to Lancaster!
