    It’s not even a factor to me, but my ceremony and reception are in the same place, and the hotel we are blocking is within walking distance.

    Personally, I think that since the ceremony and reception are in different locations, you should provide transportation for the bridal party.

    No one really gets to see the limo other then the bridal party.  I dont think its important, im not having one. I plan on going to the wedding venue in my fiances aunt charger, and leaving the reception in our subaru!

    I think the last option is nice.  I dont think it’s a necessity though. If you want to save, you can cut transportation entirely and work out who can travel with whom day of.  If that will be a nightmare, then the last option is the way to go.

    This is what I am doing: we rented a bus for the day that will transport a few guests to the ceremony and then come back to pick up the bridal party (most of the guys all have their own cars and can o on their own). After the ceremony, said transporation will bring guests to reception, fi and I will go in his car.  Our house to the ceremony is like 10 minutes away and the ceremony and reception are 4 minutes apart.

    i think it’d be nice, but personally i’m not sure if it’s worth the $.  unfortunately i’m getting married during prom season and the limo companies have an 8 hour minimum 🙁

    not sure how i’m going to fit my dress in a normal car (not that my dress is huge) tho so i havent decided what to do. for some reason this is one thing i’m having a huge problem trying to figure out

    They’re adults, they can figure out how to get from point A to point B especially since it is so close.

    5 miles is nothing you are going to pay money for someone to drive you for what 15 minutes. WASTE OF MONEY!! Maybe get someone to drive you and hubby there you can even rent a nice car that day for like 50 bucks maybe 100 but your bridal party can take care of themselves. Plus then people can go at their own pace. I always like the freedom of being able to run to the gas station and grab a candy bar inbetween because I am hungry and tend not to like wedding food. If you have a lot of out of town bridal party members get friends to give them a ride.
