Response: I can see two options to solve your situation. One is to move the entire wedding to your brothers home. That way, you can have both the ceremony and reception in one place. Your guests wont mind driving 35 to 45 minutes if they know that they will be there for at least a couple of hours or more.
The other option is to have a small ceremony, perhaps earlier in the day, at the grandparents home, then have a larger reception at your brothers home later in the day. Most of the guests would then be driving only to your brothers home rather than going two places. You and your fiance will need to decide which option best fits your guests and the type of wedding that you would like to have.
