That’s not far at all!! I don’t think you need to worry about it. People will find their own way, it’s less than 2 blocks!

so the scenic route is the more than 1.5 blocks? probably shuttles depending on how far it is, and if the older people want to see the scenic route, if not they should be able to walk the 1.5 blocks via the normal route

Ours was a little further than that and we didnt arrage any transportation. The older folks drove over themselves or had one of the family members drive over. And no one cared at all, it was fine.

that walk doesn’t sound too long but if you are concerned maybe hire a small shuttle for the older people, or if they get tired maybe have them hold on to someone’s arm to help them?

1.5 blocks does not sound bad at all!!  I almost think that the effort to get on and off a shuttle would be worse, or in and out of a car for 10 seconds.

I have the same issue except our walk is 5 blocks.  We decided on a shuttle running from the reception site to the ceremony site and back.  If someone wants to walk they can.  This also prevents people paying double for parking since it is paid parking at both locations.

Is weather a concern in your area?  Will it be cold?  Is there more than a handful of people that would have physical difficulty traveling between locations?  If you answered yes for any of those than I would get a shuttle.
