My family is in the midwest and we’re getting married near our home in northern CA (in two weeks!!), so I hear your concerns.  What saved my sanity was that we were getting married close to MY home, so vendor meetings/site visits were easy.  Why are you getting married an hour a way?  That seems to be adding difficulty to the situation…

I also figured that my guests were (almost all) grown ups.  I researched affordable hotel options, let them handle their own rental cars & flights – bc some people will be staying longer, travelling the coast, etc. – , and listed some suggested “area to-dos” on our bridal website.  People seem to be handling it fine. No one expects you to plan every little detail… and if they do, they’re crazy! 🙂

Yeah, just provide “suggested” hotels/airports based on location and direct people to travelzoo or hotels.com should they wish to look at other options.

But beware, even those who will look at othe options will STILL call/email you for more information because the fact still remains they are not familiar with the area. I really do hate this, about 3 people have done it so far and I always think “look, I can’t plan your trip and my wedding…I provided a list of 3 hotels close to the venue at discounted rates, if you want to stay someplace else, FINE…but you are on your own”….of course I don’t say that and just help them out!

BUT, more people better not start asking…lol
