So maybe this might be a stupid question. I’m planning on hiring a limo to pick us up from the hotel and take us to the ceremony/reception location. What do I do about transportation back? It seems kinda silly to have a limo waiting around all day but if I don’t arrange for that, how are we and the bridal party supposed to get back?

We had a limo and had to think about this, too. And you’re right — it’s a waste of $$ to just have the limo wait for you. We had my husband’s car get dropped off at our reception venue earlier in the morning so he and I could use it to get to the hotel after the reception. We just made sure that our wedding party had rides back to their cars either with dates or with friends or family.

Will the members of your bridal party have significant others meeting them at the ceremony/reception with cars? If so, they can go with them and probably give you a ride too.

i can’t remember how we did it before so i feel silly. i guess you don’t think of these logistical things until you plan your own wedding. it’s vegas — i’m sure if we got stuck, our venue director could just call a limo to pick us all up at the end of the night.
i’m not sure how many people will drive to the venue. it’s about 15 minutes from the strip. i was orignally planning on getting a big bus to transport everyone but it seems everyone has been booking rooms at various hotels up and down and off the strip.

Does your hotel have any kind of shuttle?

We had a shuttle drive the wedding party from the reception to the hotel. They had their SO check in during our gap.

Just let your bridal party know that they need to make arrangements after the wedding and plan to have your Fiance get his car to the reception venue ahead of time. A good way to do this is have his parents drive separately to the reception, one driving his car. We are inviting our bridal party’s SOs to join us on our party bus, so they won’t have a ride either…not sure how its all going to work out, but if you tell people early enough, they can take care of themselves.
