Hello!! I am getting married in the Secrest Octagonal Barn in West Liberty Iowa. I know there are weddings here somewhat frequently and I was wondering what everyone does for transportation for their guests?
Has anyone had this issue… its 15 miles from the city and hotel… we dont want to leave our guests in the middle of know where not knowing how to get back to the city or drinking and driving.
We are looking for an inexpensive transportation option? Any ideas?

I’m not in Iowa, but I have a similar situation. Our wedding is at a barn in the middle of nowhere, Ohio. The closest hotel is 10 minutes and many of our guests are from Out of Town. I’m planning on hiring one of my 20 y.o. brother’s friends who owns an SUV to “shuttle” people and I’m offering him $100 + free food.
ETA: It sounds like you’re a little further from town, so that may not be feasible…have you contacted the hotel your guests are staying at and seeing if they offer a shuttle you can rent out for a few hours?

Have you asked the venue for recommendations? Surely they must know what their clients do.
Here’s a post about one of their weddings. The bride seems amenable to answering questions:
What a beautiful venue!
