I would see about booking a block of rooms for guests who dont want to travel all that in one day. Pretty much every wedding I have been to most of the guests stayed at a hotel and there was a shuttle that took us to and from the reception and the ceremony. Definitely helps the guests have a better time as there is no concern about people drinking and driving!

Well considering alot of our guests had to drive 10 hours to our wedding I would say uh no 1 hour drive to a wedding is not rude

@BabyBrain:  mine is local to me, but 1-2 hours for half the guests, and 3-4 for about 25% of them. do what makes you happy, but know i fyou are having people drink they need an alternative. either transportation, or a hotel that is right there.

All of my guests traveled either 1:15 (my family) or 4 hours (DH’s Family).  The location meant a lot to us… so… do whatever you and Fiance are comfortable with!

I’ve driven a 1-2 hours away for a wedding. One of them was a bit earlier in the day so the time thing wasn’t an issue, but the second one was in the evening and we did leave a bit early- so I think that’s to be expected.
