I think a bus tour of Boston would be fantastic fun.  Guests wouldn’t have to walk anywhere, so what they are wearing isn’t as much of an issue.

If your wedding is near any of the historic sites in Boston, then you might just give them a list of things nearby.

Yeah, a driving tour would be lovely, but really just giving people a list of things to do/places to go ought to be enough. Is a gap annoying? I guess. Do guests really care? Not if they love you. 😉

I’d recommend a Old Town Trolley Tour of Boston.  I think it would be a great way to fill quite a bit of time, and it’s my favorite Boston tour.  If I were a guest, I’d have no problem riding in a trolley around in my fancy garb.  It would be much easier than walking the city in shoes not meant for big city trekking! You could also provide a list of the best sites you’d recommend in the city, but I bet the tour would be a big hit!

I’m in the meh category re: whether they’re annoying.

I kinda find it hard to figure out what I’m supposed to do w/ the time as an out of town guest. often times we go back to our hotel, or out for lunch or for coffee… But it is kinda awkward, esp. if you don’t know anyone else attending the wedding. 

The flip side is that it allows you as the bride & groom more than ample time to get photos taken. 

Is your ceremony far from your venue?  It would be nice to consider cocktails for your guests while they’re waiting for you to return, if it’s in the budget that is?  We hosted a cocktail hour for 1.5 hours then went straight into our reception. Mind you, we had both the ceremony and the reception in the same place.

They’ll get over it! Especially if they love you! 😀

2.5 hours isn’t so bad. You can have a cocktail hour at the venue if that’s possible. Send your Out of Town guests some closer places to visit just in case they do feel like sightseeing/shopping in their fancy clothes.
