    This is exactly what we’re doing. Our wedding reception ends at 10 and we DEFINITELY want to keep going. Our venue (my parent’s house) is about 25 minutes away from where we’re going to party, so we rented a bus to get people there. Bonus of not having to worry about people drinking and driving!

    If you hire a shuttle bus from your reception to the bar, then what will happen to those 50 people’s cars that are parked at the reception? They will all have to go back the next day to retrieve them? You may want to make sure that your guests are ok with that first.

    it sounds like a fun idea but it is kind of far even if you rent the bus for those closer and then they uber home they still will have to go back the next day and get their cars.

    I think 25 minutes is fine. We ended up doing a bar crawl after party that went until around 2:30am, we also hired a shuttle bus so it took people to all the destinations (although we rounded out the trip by having our shuttle drop everyone off at their hotels). I think if it’s moving closer towards everyone’s final destination it’s totally fine.

    Oh–and regarding cars, we told guests that if they planned to use the shuttle service to carpool if possible, and just leave vehicles at the venue. Then, everyone arranged to get rides to pick up their cars in the morning.
