Hello all, I’m fairly new to WB, I’ve been reading posts the past few months, but have never posted anything myself. Anyway, we’re thinking about renting a school bus (a friend of our’s mother is a school bus driver and said she would do it and give us a deal!) to provide transportation to and from the ceremony/reception and hotel for the bridal party and any other guests. I was wondering if you guys could give me some input, do you think it’s tacky or not that big of a deal? We want to be able provide transportation, especially for our bridal party, but the cost of a party bus is out of our price range. Please leave your thoughts, I’d really appreciate it!! thanks in advance!

I think it is a great idea. I have seen some pretty fancy weddings on the TV shows that have used school buses to transport their guests, so I think you should be fine. Lucky for us, our ceremony and reception were both at the same venue, so we didn’t have to worry about additional transportation.

My sister did this for her wedding. I thought it was awesome and all the guests were grateful that they didn’t have to drive, especially at the end of the night. I thought it was cute and practical, not tacky.

I would go for it! Everyone is familiar with school buses… and they hold tons of people. Plus at the end of the night, when people may be drunk, they’re not gonna care anyway.

I’m also in the “I’d just be thankful I didn’t have to drive” camp. I’d have no problem hopping on a school bus.

I actually was just talking about how much fun we had at our friends wedding riding in the school bus- it was so nostalgic! I saw go for it, especially if you are getting a deal…
