How big is your guest list– if you’re looking at having lodging for almost everyone for free, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it.  But if you’ve got a lot more people than you have rooms, that might be a lot harder for them.

If lodging for your guests is included, that would help a lot of people be able to attend, I’d think. Are you guys inviting kids? I’m just wondering, since it’ll be an overnight thing, if there are any reasons someone might not be able to stay overnight and therefore not be able to attend?

I know I personally would be excited to travel as a guest to a beautiful place for a wedding if my lodging were paid for!

What kind of venue are you looking for?

I was looking at asheville when we first got engaged as well. And I was a little sad that we couldn’t do it but the schematics were just unrealistic – (asheville is 5 hours for us!). However with that being said – I don’t think its a horrible distance. I did finally limit mine to no more then 2 hours. (it ended up being like 1 1/2 hours)

You still have time so keep looking – i know i found a lot that i loved in the charlotte area (but were a little too far for me) You never know you could find one you like even more.

I don’t mind driving to a wedding as long as I have a place to stay.  (And I’ve driven eight hours to a wedding.  2-4 seems like a piece of cake.)  I think the venue looks awesome.  I would totally book it 🙂

I would definitely drive that, especially if a place to stay was included!
