    i’d go with venue 1. venue 2 would be kind of a hassle since guests would have to bring their own bedding and sleep in twin beds and whatnot. it sounds great for the actual wedding, but if you’re wanting it to be more like a wedding weekend with them staying onsite, then i think you need to go with venue 1.

    Does the summer camp (venue 2) have nearby lodging (normal motels/hotels) that guests could stay at if they didnt want to stay on the campsite? If not, I would definitely choose the first venue. If there is nearby lodging then I might go with #2 because of the rain factor. Do you have pictures of either one?

    With venue 1: would your guests be paying themselves for breakfast and dinner on Fri, or would you be flipping that bill?

    The reason I ask is that if your guests will be paying, then that selling point for venue 1 isn’t that much of a selling point, b/c some guest will choose not to, and go somewhere else, so the same would be for venue 2 in a sense.

    Because rain plans, IMO, is one of the most important keys I say venue 2.

    Okay, so given your second post, it sounds like food really isn’t that much of an issue between the two.

    And, I re-read your post and I agree about the hassle of venue two and having to bring bedding, vs. 1 wouldn’t have that same hassle.

    Also, just as long as you have a tent, this really will keep all the protection you need from the rain, just make sure its large enough to fit all your guests.

    So all in all, I change my inital opinion and think venue 1 sounds like the best for a wedding weekend. I really think this will be a great time and will actually be like a mini vacation in the rural country for your guests 🙂

    I think VEnue 1 sounds like your best option and most comfortable for your guests!
