    I like #2. Especially, if the bus can drop people off at a hotel afterwards/car could be left at reception area overnight.

    I really like the school bus ideea, especially if you could incorporate a small bit of school type theme into the wedding. It would be fun and kinda make the guests feel like kids again 🙂

    I’d think it was really nice that you offered, but ultimately, I’d want my car for the flexibility it provides. It also depends on how much parking is. If parking is $15 or less, no brainer, I’d pay for parking. If parking was $45+ (not unheard of in some cities), I’d be more inclined to take the bus.

    What would be the bus situation at the end of the night? Would it run every hour after 8 or 9 PM? Only at the end of the night?

    I’d probably do option 2 if it was available.  I’m good with hanging downtown and going for a drink but still having the flexibility of having my car at the reception site when it’s time to leave.

    Neither bus option would be an issue for me as long as I and my car were in the same place at the end of the night, so yours sound good.  How are you going to coordinate leave times though to pick guests up?  What if they miss the bus?

    I would be SO happy not to have to pay for parking! Also, not to drive downtown! You are SO thoughtful to offer shuttles!

    I would probably just drive, but option 2 is fine also

    Honestly, if there is a charge to park at a wedding site, I think it is good manners for the bride and groom to take care of it.  A shuttle is a very nice alternative, but I am concerned with the gap between your ceremony and reception.  That seems a littlle unfair for guests, even if there are bars and restaurants to entertain them.  Can you host something either at the ceremony or the reception site during this time?

    @Pinkmoon:  I actually live just outside of Boston, and I take the T if I’m going ito the city. But parking is 300-400/mo for a work pass (M-F, 6am-8pm) I don’t know what it is if you actuially live there!

    But I HATE driving in cities, even really small ones! Parking in Boston is like $25 for 12 hours, I think. In Vermont city parking is still like $10 for the night! I would be SO happy to take a shuttle!
