Dear ImAwkward Admin,

I’m planning a wedding, and I wanted to know whether 3/10th of a mile was too much to ask guests in formal attire to walk. Please tell me.

Hello Walking Planner,

3/10ths of a mile is a short distance to ask guests to walk for your big moment. You will not be able to determine who your strongest guests are by only asking that they walk 3/10ths of mile.

On the big day, guests will be eager to demonstrate their prowess to you. I suggest a minimum of one mile in formal attire to start separating the wheat from the chaff. If you insist on 3/10ths of a mile, I recommend adding obstacles such as sidewalk closures and homeless people to the route.
