I would be surprised if she really expected you to drop her off.  The day after is always busy and hectic.  

However, it would be nice if you or someone could drive her to the airport.  Do you think a parent or close relative could do it? If not, apologize and say she should plan on a cab, but if plans change you will give her a ride.

I agree- I doubt she actually expects you to drop her off.  I had a friend ask if there was somewhere to stay at my end for the wedding and although I have two extra bedrooms I wasn’t going to do it….it’s your wedding and the reception is for guests, but the time outside of that is for you and your new hubby.

I’m sure someone will step up to the plate and take your friend to the airport.

I can’t imagine anyone expecting you to entertain them the week of your wedding, especially if several people are coming together.  I wouldn’t even mention it because I just can’t imagine them assuming that.  As far as your friend, I would probably just call her and tell her that you’re so sorry but you’ve thought about it and you don’t think anyone can take her to the airport (although if she really is your best friend flying halfway around the world and if you want to be really generous, you could offer to pay for her cab, but I don’t think that’s necessary).

If I was that guest I would never expect the bride to drop me off or make my arrangements. I think each guest is responsible for their own travel and she can take a cab.

I don’t think you’re being selfish at all. You definitely shouldn’t be stressing yourself out over this. Just roll with the punches, if you or someone else is available when she needs to be dropped off then drop her off. If not, call her a cab and maybe cover the cab cost for her. I doubt it will be as big of an ordeal as you think it will be.

They are your friends, they love you, and they will understand.  I would just explain exactly what you said…..you spoke before you thought.  I honestly think they will understand.  What I did for my out of towners I had a party the night before, not a rehearsal dinner.  That might be an option for you?  Like others I’m wondering how far away the airport is, who will all be there, where your wedding is etc.  It’s hard to take back what you say but I’m sure if you were just upfront with your guests they would understand.

Could you invite them to a gift opening the next day and arrange something for them?

If it was me, I would just call a car service a few weeks in advance and book her a car to take her to the airport. Tell her that although someone may be able to take her, you can’t risk her missing her flight so she will need to take a cab but you made a reservation for her and give her the phone number and reservation number so she has all the info. If youc an splurge and she is the only one, maybe pay the cost or split it with her.
