does vegas not do public transit? I thought there was some sort of skyway/subway thing??? at least up and down the strip? 

it’s been a few years since I’ve been to vegas. 🙂

It’s never your responsibility but depending on the location it can be a nice thing to do.  We’re doing it because we have a huge amount of out-of-staters and while the ceremony/reception/hotel are not far apart there isn’t really any way to get between them via public transportation and I’m not sure how easy it would be to drive between them for those not familiar with the area.

Its not bad to ask people to take a cab to your wedding.  If getting a cab back is a problem, then ask your reception venue how they usually handle situations like yours.  Is it possible to arrange a shuttle with the hotel?  

If you are really worried, look into having a mini bus shuttle guest back and forth.

Its not a responsiblity.  We provided transportation for our guests in my small hometown, but that was because the hotel was about 10 miles from the reception venue (my hometown has rules – no chain restaurants, stores or hotels in order to preserve the “charm.”  so hotel were in the neighboring city)  that way, guests could drink and not feel obligated to leave early. etc, and we werent worried about liability.  Being in Vegas though, there are cabs and its only 4 miles down the strip.  It would be nice, but not necessary.  We rented a school bus for ours and it was cheap.  you could look into that

also check with your reception location/hotel.  They often provide a shuttle for guests, they might be able to hook you up

If it’s in your budget, I would try to provide transportation, but it’s not required.   Definitely talk to the reception place or hotel and they might be able to arrange some sort of shuttle.

Oh, and I meant to add, we’re providing a trolley for our guests because we don’t want to worry about anyone driving, or having to get a cab on a Saturday night,

It is not a responsibility, but it’s a nice gesture if you can do it. We are having a trolley take everyone out to the ceremony and back to the reception. I think most people will be staying at the hotel that shares a parking lot with our reception venue, BUT I’ve started thinking about those that are not going to stay there. I’m looking into cabs and prices for a shuttle for after the reception. I will at least have the phone numbers of cab co. available just in case.
