Okay bees, let me ask you something.
If GM drive to cremony themselves, then the limo takes everyone to the reception (from ceremony). The guys cars will be at the ceremony… how do they get back to their cars? Does the limo take them back at like midnight to get the cars? Or what?

I’m having their SO drive them to get cars next morning and drive separate. If need be we’ll put them in cabs

That’s the kind of thing I’ve never worried about for FI (he’s been GM quite a few times recently) usually the next morning we just hitch a ride with one of his friends! I would let the GMs figure this out, you don’t want to keep the limo extra time just to drive them back, and like PP said if it comes to it just call ’em cabs!

Yeah if he has a date, then have her drive it to the reception. We are discouraging our wedding party from driving, As we are providing transporation for it.

We had our bridal party’s dates drive them back to get their cars. We also had some family members offer to help make sure everyone had a way back to their cars at the end of the night, too. Can you do that?

We had our transportation pick them up at the hotel where they all got ready.

I think if you tell someone they have to come in the limo, then it’s on you to get them back to where their cars are. If you don’t want to keep the limo hanging around, then give the GM the option of either riding in the limo to the reception and finding their own way back to their cars, or driving to the reception. If you want them to all come in the limo to the reception, though, and don’t give them the choice, then you have to either keep the limo to drive them back in that, or take the task of lining up carpools for them. I just think it’s really unfair to separate someone from their car and not make arrangements to get them reunited.
I also think it’s pretty unfair to say “just let the GM’s girlfriend drive their car back” because some of those girlfriends may want to have a few drinks and would otherwise not be planning to drive that night.
