We're getting married at my church next October, and we're trying to decide on a reception venue. We thought we found the perfect site: a ski lodge that we visit often in the winter.
It's relevant to us.
It's 45 minutes from the church.
Is that asking too much of our guests? It's not that far from where we live, but it's still a bit of a drive. We'll have a few out-of-town guests who could probably stay at a hotel halfway between the two locations, but most guests will be driving from home (either near the church or way out past it). The ride home from the reception could take over an hour for many--maybe closer to two for some.
