I’m struggling with the same thing right now.  I have the our shuttle for 8 hours as much as I’d like but if I do two trips I don’t want my guests to be hanging out too long or rushing to get over there.  I’m going just doing to do one trip (pickup at hotel at 4:30) and have them dropped off about 5:10 for a 5:30 ceremony.  We’re getting a 55 passenger bus and I’m going to hope that will be enough.  Many of my guests are local so I’m hoping they’ll drive themselves over.

If I was in your situation, I would probably sacrifice the girls shuttle over there if need be.  Have all of us drive over in a car together (or two) and the overflow of guests use the shuttle trip. 

 

Good luck!!

@Michelle1227:  Gotcha!  I meant maybe drive over in a car with your BMs, not on the shuttle with your groomsmen.

I totally agree that hotel and transportation have been the toughest for me too and we will transport guests in waves prior to the ceremony.  As far as having downtime for an hour we also have the same thing but this is what we are doing.

We are having our ceremony at 4 and actually put in our “invite” that we will be having pre-ceremony refreshments from 3-4.

1) Pre-ceremony refreshments (light snacks, flavored waters, light drinks – beers/bellini’s)

2) Lawn games – cornhole, horseshoes etc

I’m not sure if your venue can accomodate these things but some other things to pass the time:

1) Guest Book – we are doing a video guest book where everyone has to say their favorite memory of us

2) other icebreaker type stuff I’ve seen cute cards that have ways to get guests to mingle

Up to you on gauging what your guests would be up for – mine are mostly friends, super close family and drinkersCool
