I don’t think it is wrong to have guests drive themselves to your wedding etiquette wise guest transportation is the guests responsibility; however, a shuttle would be greatly appreciated by your guests I am sure.

In your situation the majority of guests will be staying in one place. What is the cab situation like in the situation? Some people would offer to be Dirty Delete but I am sure many would opt to cab it in and back!

Are the majority of the guests getting a hotel room for after your wedding? How many people is this?  If the majority of your guests have traveled and/or are spending a night in a hotel to attend your wedding, I think that it’s the gracious thing to do to provide transport.

All of our guests are staying at a hotel about 1.5 miles from the venue and we’re getting a shuttle.  It’s not a far drive for them, but we’re having an open bar and didn’t want to have our guests risk driving after enjoying the bar.  See if your hotel will go down on the cost.  Our venue went waaaay down on costs just by us asking the question.

If you can swing the transportation in terms of $$, I’d do it.  Not only will it make things a lot easier on your guests but also you’ll have peace of mind that no one will be driving drunk.

Did you ask your hotel if they offer such a service? Our hotel will give us a shuttle if we book more than 15 rooms. Some of the places we checked would pay for it over 30 rooms and go halvsies on anything between 15-30 rooms. Other hotels offered it regardless. It wasn’t something I had originally thought to ask, but when I saw it on one brochure, I asked everyone. We have the same issue because our friends LOVE to party and I don’t want anyone getting in trouble.

I think it would help out guests a lot, but at the same time 1 mile is not a far drive at all! Its almost walk-able!! We are looking into a shuttle from ceremony to reception and back because it is about 20 min drive. We are also thinking about renting a pontoon boat to take people since it is only about 7 min by the lake!
