I have paid for shuttles for my guests since nearly all of my guests are from out of town to and from the hotel from the ceremony and reception. i wanted to know if it is a good idea to add optional local attraction onto my wedding website and whoever wanted to go to that attraction could accompany us on the shuttle going there.

When would the trip to the local attraction fit into the day? In between the ceremony and the reception? It sounds like a nice idea, as long as it fits in time-wise – your guests may want to get out and take photos etc and you don’t want them to be running late getting to the reception.

@caffeiney: It would be a day before the actual wedding

I think it’s a lovely gesture but it really depends on where you are, because in some places, visitors might enjoy wandering on their own more than an organized event. If you’re in a “destination” type area like Napa Valley, Niagara Falls and so forth, the group tour might be a nice touch, assuming the attraction(s) does not charge admission fees or that you’re willing to cover those for the guests. If you’re somewhere more urban like Chicago, Orlando, or MSP, your guests will probably enjoy setting their own agendas. And since it’s an expensive idea, you want to be sure you’ll have enough guests on board to make it worthwhile.
