How far is to far?

In your opinions how far would you feel is too far to travel from ceremony to reception site?

I think a good max would be an hour. I've had to go a bit longer than an hour between each location and after that point, it was a bit frustrating. 


30-45mins is probably the average I've traveled between the two sites, and I didn't hear any complains for that.


At the end of the day though, you know your guests best. Ask a few family members how they would feel and use that as a starting point!


Good luck!!

I agree with missjess about an hour or less.

We were a good 25 minutes from the reception and no one seemed to mind. We kept the time between ceremony and reception reasonable so guests could stop at the hotel if they wanted or go right there for cocktails.

I agree! Less than an hour is ideal.

It's been so long since I've been at a wedding, but I would agree with everyone else.  Definitely less than an hour.

Over an hour drive is too long! I wouldn't want to go no more than 45 minutes away!

definitely less than an hour mines about 20 mins plus you have to take into account traffic could be a long haul if it was an hour or more!

Ditto for me too - about an hour would be optimal.  We did have a family wedding to go to, but we were there for the weekend.  Local, definitely an hour.  : )
