- Wedding: July 2010
I’ve gotten really good advice so far, so I am going to try again.
I am having a weekend wedding in a little town on a sea bluff in Northern California. The site I am in love with is a little less than a mile from the reception site, and cocktails will start immediately after.
My little problem is that the site is a state park, right on the cliff (no, thats the great part) with space for only six cars to park. I have no control over whether other people park there or not. With a projected guest list of 70 – 80, there is no way everyone can drive.
However, it is quite walkable, and I am only expecting a handful of elderly guests, less than six. Since it is a weekend wedding, I am planning a highly detailed website, with recommendations to wear sensible shoes to the ceremony, for example, because it is outside.
Is it crazy to also suggest walking on the website, and personally suggesting it to the younger guests, who will represent the bulk? I expect most people will be staying at the resort where the reception is held, as it is one of the least expensive options in the tiny town. So this would require suggesting about 1.6 miles of walking, round trip.
If I don’t suggest walking, is the next best thing shuttles? I don’t mind the cost, it isn’t that great, but it seems odd for such a short distance.
Weather also isn’t a problem, because it doesn’t rain in California in October (trust me), and I have an indoor back-up spot at the resort if it is (unseasonably) cold, or (unpredictably) too windy.
Sorry for the ramble, I know this isn’t the most pressing problem, but I would appreciate honest feedback.
