I am in the beginning stages of planning our wedding and we are looking into venues right now. I am struggling with deciding where to have the ceremony and reception as about 50% or more of our guests will be coming from out of town. Most of my FI's side will be traveling internationally or from the east coast. My side will be coming from the east coast, and scattered throughout the west coast, as well as our friends coming from our hometown in Northern Cali.
For anyone that has experience with out of town weddings, how important do you think it is that the venue is close to a major airport? Right now we have only been looking at venues that are within 1-1.5 hours drive of a major airport. However, I have my eye on some venues that are closer to 2-3 hours from an airport! Is it too much to ask guests to fly and then drive that distance?
Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
