- Wedding: April 2013
I am stuck on the logistical problem of guest transportation. It is importance to my fiancee and me to provide our guests a ride home at the end of our reception so they can imbibe to their hearts content. Here are the important details:
-Reception ends at 10:30
-After party to be held at bar that is stumbling distance to hotels
-Our ceremony and reception are at the same location so no problems there
-Wedding venue is about 5 miles away from hotels/afterparty
Obviously, one option is to hire a shuttle to provide guests rides before the wedding and after. We are not sure how much we need the before transportation, so feedback would be good on this. I got a quote for one company and it was $535 before gratuity…expensive but not out of the question.
I was wondering what other ways brides have come up with for getting their guests home safe. Maybe arrangements with local taxi companies? Friend-of-a-friends who will drive a passenger van? Please, I need ideas!
