Is this too much to ask?
We are just starting to look at venues and we found one that we really like the feel of and is in budget. The place is a beautiful cabin with a huge deck and tons of outdoor space. It's in a valley surrounded by redwood trees and is exactly the sort of place we always imagined getting married. The ceremony and reception would both happen there. There are a couple of things about it that I'm unsure about. We are planning on only having about 40 guests, but about 30 of them would be OOT. The venue is really isolated though, it's about an hour drive on a winding road to the closest hotel. Is that too far to ask guests to drive? The venue also doubles as a retreat sometimes, so it can sleep about 20 people, but not in private rooms. There are about 4 or 5 beds in several large rooms. I know that quite a few of my guests wouldn't have any problem with that arrangement. We would of course cover the additional $1000 cost of renting the venue overnight if guests were interested in that option (I wouldn't guests to pay for a room that isn't private). So I guess what I'm asking is, is that too far to drive for guests that aren't comfortable with that overnight arrangement or will something like this be too much of a logistical nightmare and I should just look at other venues? Am I being one of those dumb people putting my vision before my guests? Thanks for any advice
