Is it worth it to rent a limo for wedding party and shuttling guests?

I’d say it guarantees he’ll be there, but I just don’t think it’s worth the money – especially if both the reception and ceremony are at the same venue (ours were as well).

We just rented a sedan from a limo company – for about $100 total – to shuttle us, the marrying couple, off to our hotel at the end of the night.

It will save you several hundred dollars – and no one will miss it.

I personally wouldn’t worry about guests, but for the wedding party hell yeah!! It was so much fun all us riding in it having champagne together!!!!!!

Guests can take care of themselves. They do every other 364 days per year. 

It might be nice to do it for you and for the bridal party, but only YOU can determine if it is worth the cost. For us, it wasn’t. Mainly because my fiancé and one of my bridesmaids don’t drink. So my bridal party and I all have designated drivers…

I understand your concern about the drinking. In my case, I printed up cards with the numbers/addresses of several area hotels, as well as the phone numbers for several limo companies and put them out on each table.

If that doesn’t work, most of your guests will likely know someone else at the wedding who can give them a ride hope. Or – and I know this is a big stretch – hopefully they’ll have the good sense not to have more than they can handle so they can drive at the end of the night.

I went to one wedding with a shuttle service for guests, and I must say, as a guest I thought it was the nicest little courtesy.  Would I have made it to the reception without it? Sure. But was it nice to not have to have someone pulling up directions on a phone in an unfamilar town in the middle of the night? Most definitely. I say that if its in your budget, your guests would love it.
