Let people sort out their own transportation.

Some people will rent a car for the weekend. Some people prefer to use transit or take a taxi.

If they have the address they can GPS their way if they are driving, or use the trip planner link on your local transit website.

I disagree, I think you should try and squeeze the shuttle into your budget to take guests from the ceremony to the reception locations. I think it’s fine to leave guests to get a taxi home at the end of the night because everyone will be going to different hotels etc but after the ceremony everyone is heading to the same place so it makes sense to get a shuttle.

We contemplated getting a shuttle for our wedding, but then I took an informal poll of some of our guests.  Pretty much everyone said that even if we got one, they would rather drive themselves (so they could leave when they wanted).  We are putting a list of local cab companies and their phone numbers in the OOT bags, however.

I would leave guests to find their own way to and from the ceremony.  Unless you have a shuttle that also takes them back downtown after the reception, it just seems like you are leaving them high and dry.  If it isn’t in the budget then it just isn’t in the budget!  You shouldn’t feel bad for making people drive to the wedding.  I think most people expect it.  We are asking our guests to park at the reception location (we are paying for their valet) and then we are providing a trolley to and from the ceremony.  Our ceremony is technically within walking distance of our reception site, but we didn’t want people to have to walk those blocks in heels, and we have a backup in case of rain!

i am having a bridesmaid organize a shuttle and offer it to folks for a charge of around $15 for a 1h30m ride to the wedding/reception location.  Considering how my friends drink, i think it’s only appropriate to offer something since taxi is out of the question. 

It may be tacky but i just dont have the 2k to pick up the tab.
