If you'll be tying the knot and celebrating in two different spaces on your wedding day, how far apart are your venues? A few feet, a few minutes, or a quick drive?

    Our ceremony and reception were all in one location. Which given the fact that we had an ice storm during our wedding was a fantastic decision.

    It's about a 10 / 15 minute drive I think?
    But there's still a skyride up from the parking lot over at the reception location which I didn't include

    All at the same spot, with a huge guest list we need a large space for both ceremony and reception.

    Our ceremony and our reception venue are about a 30 minute drive away from each other, should traffic be forgiving!
    Thankfully our ceremony will only be 30 minutes instead of the hour it usually is, so that time saved will be spent traveling near the reception so we can take our photos

    Our ceremony and reception are in the same building. The ceremony is downstairs in a long, skinny room, and the reception is upstairs in the event space.

    My fiancé and I's ceremony and reception will be at the same location; our ceremony will be outdoors, and our reception is in one of the many rooms available.

    Down the hall lol. We still have a 2 hour gap (3:30 end of ceremony to 5:30 start of cocktail hour) for guests to freshen up, grab a nap, mingle amongst themselves while we do photos lol. We're gonna do all the family/wedding party photos first so family can go mingle for that extra hour. We'll join our guests for cocktail hour at 6pm after a refresh and a mental step back Smiley smile

    Ceremony venue to reception is about a 15-18 minute drive. the hotel is about 7 minutes from ceremony (and in the middle of the 2 geographically). so people can stop at hotel in between easily.

    Very quick drive - it's about 1.5 km away by car, or about 0.8 km for anyone that wants to walk it through a park. It was important to us that our guests didn't have to go far!

    A few feet! Our reception space is right at the back of our ceremony space. Majority of the wedding party will be walking through the reception space to get down the isle for the ceremony.

    It will be at the same location so people will walk from outside (weather permitting) to the pavilion where supper will be.
