Is this even do-able?
I have just started thinking about this stuff and have not gone and actually looked at any venues yet, so far online only. We love camping, backpacking, and all that outdoorsy stuff so I would like to have a wedding with that theme, hopefully. No matter where I host the wedding almost all of the guest (maybe 25, family only) will have to travel at least 2 hours because both of our families are very spread out (about 8 guests more than 10hrs if driving!). Because of this I would like to make it very worth the trip for them all to come. A lot of the places I find appealing for the ceremony (like national parks and waterfalls) are rather far away from a town with more than a pop. of 2,000. Lodging seems do-able but what about catering, florists, etc.? The nearest city being 2 hours away and I want top notch food for everyone. We are also vegan which makes it even more difficult finding a caterer since many of these lodge style places almost never have food options for us. What should I do? I have my doubts about a caterer driving two hours away, but then again I haven't asked. Do you think I will have to settle and have an in-town wedding?
