20 minutes isn’t bad for travel time between a ceremony and reception.  I wouldn’t mind at all as a guest.

I would definitely do this (and might actually have to do this, lol). 20 minutes is minimal travel time, and it gives guests a bit of a break/time to breathe before all the festivities!

I guess that depends on traffic/parking. If it’s easy, I wouldn’t mind. If not, eh.

That is exactly how the last wedding was, that I attended. It was fine.

I don’t mind a gap of an hour or so, to unwind.

20 minutes isn’t too far. As long as it’s under 30-45 I’d say you’re good.

20 minutes isn’t the worst thing. I went to a wedding once with over an hour drive between places… That sucked.

  • Wedding: March 2017 - Ceremony: Cellon Oak Park; Reception: Alachua Woman\'s Club

We’ll be doing something similar. Our ceremony will be at a park underneath a huge old oak tree (outside of town, kind of in the middle of no where, but free lol) and our reception will be about a 15 minute drive to the reception venue on Main Street in the middle of downtown in our little town. We’ll probably do some pictures at the tree and some in the historic downtown area. I think as long as the drive is no more than 30-45 min people won’t mind. And if they do mind, well then I guess they’ll just miss out on the food and drinks lol

montrealbride2017 :  does this mean people will be offered drinks before they are expected to drive to the reception venue? I’d imagine that would mean either people not drinking, or people driving after drinking.

If your guest are already traveling a ways to get to the wedding i am not sure if that is going to be fun for them to drive

But if you are limited on a budget than do what you can 🙂

At least it’s not 30mins to an hour away

montrealbride2017 :  . As long as the ceremony site and reception site are within 30 mins of each other and you give enough time for the guest to get there shouldnt be a problem.
