Do you think transportation is going to be necessary? Only asking because I’ve not personally been to a wedding where transportation was provided, but I know that plenty of people have done it. So I’ll bump this and see if anyone can weigh in from personal experience. 🙂

Hi! I have a similar situation and what we are thinking about doing is getting one bus but have 2 different departure times from the hotel and 2 different departures from the reception back to the hotel.  

 

Did you book a block of rooms at the hotel?  You can get a list from the hotel of everyone staying with your wedding.  I am not sure if you sent out your invitations but you can also have a code for them to give to the hotel so you can keep track of your guests and give them welcome bags.

 

In terms of alternative transportation, anything other than a basic bus will be more expensive but, I have been to weddings where they had a trolley car and it was really unique and special.  Hope this all helps!

I attended a wedding where the hosts contacted all of the guest by email to ask 1) whether they would use the transportation provided and the number of people in their party and 2) which of 3 pick-up points they would use.  They made arrangements so that each pick-up point had 1 bus, and there was just one pick-up.  During the reception the buses operated in shuttle fashion to bring people back (busses arrived at intervals and each bus dropped people off at all 3 pickup points).  This system worked fairly well, but you would obviously do something different if you had 1 pick-up point.
