My FI and I are planning to have our wedding next August and our guest list is right around 300 people. We have two locations picked out for the reception but I can't decide which one to go with. One site is a local community building in a town that is about a 20 minute drive away from the church and any hotels that guests would stay at. The other location is a hotel banquet hall in Champaign. The only problem is that the banquet hall at the hotel feels very small and we want to be able to have a large dance floor. I'm concerned that if we have that many guests all of the tables will be too close together. But I worry about everyone making the drive back from the small town venue. I don't know what to do! These are the only two options we have that are available on our date and don't cost thousands of dollards just to rent the space!
