I think guests can dress themselves appropriately for your wedding. Don’t worry about buying wraps or flip flops. 

Spend the money on transportation for you, your bridal party and the guests! We rented one coach bus and used it for the bridal party – it then circled around and picked up the family to bring them to the venue for pictures and then went back for guests – at the end of the evening we all drove back to the hotel together. People really appreciated not having to worry about driving.

I’d cut the “comfy extras” (sounds like a waste of money to get pashminas for people…most people will probably leave them behind; I wouldn’t take off my shoes at a wedding for slippers; and bathroom products are nice but unnecessary).

I’d also probably cut the shuffles for guests.  Those are nice, but also unnecesary.

I would cut both the comfy extras and the limo. I’ve been to a number of weddings where the bridal party rides in the shuttle with the other guests, and it’s never been an issue.

As a guest, having a shuttle is a HUGE perk.

Honestly I’d cut both the limos for the bridal party/parents and the “comfy extras.” The comfy extras seem a bit over the top, and will not find their way home with the guests. You’ll spend hundreds on pashminas that will sit in your closet for 10 years before you donate them. Don’t waste the money. For transportation for the bridal party, hire taxis to take them to the reception and join the guests on the shuttles back.  That will save you quit a nice chunk of money, plus it really is not fun trying to get into a limo in a wedding dress.
