If your paying I think you can reasonably do both of those things.

An hour isn’t far at all to drive to an airport, and as long as the hotel is convenient I say it is fine!

You are being UBER generous with paying their way, I think they can handle a little inconvenience!

@smiles4jo:  You’re paying, you pick the flights and hotel. If they want something different, they can pay the difference. Ultimately, it’s your choice to pay for them and it’s awesome that you’re doing it but if they’re adults they really should be chipping in SOMETHING towards it–after all this is your wedding and they’re getting a free vacation out of the deal. I’m not trying to start drama but I’m just pointing out that a situation like that can breed resentment. We’re paying for fiance’s brother to go to Hawaii for our destination wedding and I’m kind of ticked off that his parents haven’t offered to pitch in AT ALL (he’s 16)

I would consider it in EXTREMELY poor taste if your guests weren’t willing to drive an extra hour to the airport or stay in a different area of town when they’re not paying for it.

You are paying so you can put them in any hotel you want, but the flight times should have a bit of wiggle room if they have special circumstances. But, for the most part, you can have them go at any time and, yes, driving an hour is perfectly acceptable. You are being very kind in paying for them and you have every right to make things as cost-efficient as possible for yourself.
