    How is the wedding party getting to the church? If they are driving themselves, I’d say it’s ok to not get a limo seeing as they will have transportation anyways. However, if you’re all meeting somewhere to get ready and then you’ve arranged something to get everyone to the church, I think you have to continue to shuttle them around as they won’t have any other transportation available.

    oh I voted wrong… lol now that I see that they’re all arriving in separate vehicles, you don’t need to get anything for them… because then their cars would be at the church after the reception!!! and they’d be stranded!!!!

    Since it’s such a short distance, I see no reason to rent any type of vehicle.

    If it is in your buget, I would rent a limo for all of you. You can pick them up at the reception site then drive to the church, then back…that way their cars will be at the reception site.

    This would also allow you to stop anywhere and take pictures if you want to with the whole wedding party there.

    My fiance and I got a ten passenger limo for us, our moms, and bridal party.  However, my mom is saying how my fiance and I should have our own car because we’ll be stopping to take pictures.  When I was in a wedding, the people in the limo got out and took some pics with them or just waited in the limo drinking champagne and having fun. 

    The last thing I want to do is waste money on another limo.  Even though my mom has offered to pay for it, I don’t see the need.  The bridal party has absolutely no problem with our arrangement.  They actually like that they don’t have to worry about transportation since their husbands will be taking their cars to the reception.  We are taking pictures outside the church because the church grounds are beautiful, getting in the limo and driving to the venue, which has beautiful new grounds.  It’s not like it’s going to be a 2-3 hour ride where they’d start to get tired of sitting around waiting.

    I remember how fun it was in the limo with the bride and groom and bridal party.  I just need to convince my mom that everyone’s totally happy with the arrangement.

    I’ve been in several weddings where transportation was provided for the wedding party and it was more of an inconvenience for me. I either had to figure out how to get back to the church after the reception to get my car or recruit someone to drive the poor single girl’s car to the reception site. It’s a very nice gesture, but logistically it just isn’t worth it.

    @Dreamlover:  This makes me feel better. When i tell told my Wedding Party that they were getting themselves to the wedding they all looked disapointed.
