If it were me, I’d be fine with the 45 minutes, especially if a shuttle will get me there and back. Is there any chance you could arrange for the shuttle/bus to come twice, once maybe an hour or two before the end for any early-leavers and then at the end.

However, if your wedding ends late, then I’d also be fine staying there, even if there’s not much around. My venue is a similar distance away from the airport/downtown of the city it’s near. We’re having an evening wedding, so there won’t be a need for guests to go somewhere else after the wedding is over on Saturday night. So we’re encouraging our out-of-towners to spend Friday night/Saturday morning downtown, and then drive up to the venue and spend Saturday night there.

I don’t know if you can require guests to take the shuttle so much as offer it, but maybe other bees have advice in that realm.  Being stranded at a wedding might be troublesome for older guests.  I like the two rounds’ shuttle idea.  

As far as the distance, driving is not terribly far, though I would probably be looking at getting a nearby hotel for the night as a guest (and calling an uber or taxi if need be).  Perhaps you can offer the name of a local hotel on your website?
