Our hotel was walking distance from our venue so we just walked to the hotel. I’ve never met someone who didn’t drive! I think she should just ride with a family member. It shouldn’t be your responsibility to work out a ride for someone who can’t drive. That’s on her. She seems like she’s being pretty passive aggressive about it, too, which isn’t cool.

You could leave your FI’s car at the venue (if possible) and get a taxi. This leaves your dad’s car for your sister to drive. However, won’t she want to drink too?

It might be a lot easier if you get a taxi both ways (in with your MOH and mother, back for you and your DH) with a second taxi ordered to take your MOH and mother home. That means nobody has to drive your dad’s car or worry about drinking and everyone gets home. 

I know plenty of people who don’t drive – in England you don’t necessarily need a car – and while I’d normally suggest that lifts are quite easy to arrange, if might be easier to sort your mother’s transport home rather than have her worrying you about it on your wedding day.

@mishy:  DH drove us from the venue to the honeymoon suite (and then on to our honeymoon the next day), but in my case DH rarely drinks so that was easy.

I’m a bit confused – if you and DH can’t take his sports car due to drinking, then obviously you can’t take your dad’s car either. Or is there something I’m missing?

So I suggest either taking a taxi, or have a trusted friend take you.
