I think you should set up discounted room blocks at nearby hotels, and then communicate that to your guests, either via your wedding website or as an enclosure in your invitation. The rest is up to them.

How many of your guests will be coming in from out of town?

you should try to set up a discounted block at a nearby hotel (which should cost you nothing) and provide them with that info, but they are responsible for booking their own hotel and paying for it. and if they dont want to say at the hotel you blocked rooms at, it is their responsbility to find an alternative

I think it’s your responsibility at the very least to set up at least one hotel block (depending on guest count). I think your guests are smart enough to figure out how to rent a car if need be. Put the hotel block information on your wedding website and as an insert in your invites.

My (generous) dad is paying for rooms for our family and his close friends. We’ve set aside a block of discounted rooms adjacent for everyone else(our friends, DF family, etc.)

About half of our guests will be from out-of-town (or -state or -country), so we’re trying to make the whole event as convient as possible.

We set up a block of rooms at the hotel, and I provided information for all of the transportation options on our website: shuttle numbers, taxi estimates, driving directions, train schedule. Also, for guests who will be arriving the night before (it’s a holiday weekend at a resort), my dad or a cousin will pick up anyone who arrives at the train station nearby.

i will be having ALL out of town guests minus my folks and what we did is set a block of rooms at discounted rates where the reception will be held.  And we made sure that we can adjust the amt of rooms if more people can make it

@HappyBee33:  Its very easy to do. Just call the hotel and ask to speak to the group sales manager. They should be able to set you right up. 🙂
