As it gets closer to your date, I would consider posting an ad in a local newspaper looking for someone local.  There are so many people out of work right now (me!) that I’m sure you could find someone – a college student, a retiree, or someone looking to make some cash on the side.

You could have a phone interview, and then maybe a face-to-face at some point to make sure it’s someone you feel good about.

Or, you could put the word out to friends and family – maybe someone has a friend/cousin/co-worker or two that would be willing to make the trip there and be a driver in exchange for being fed and an hourly or “set” fee.

Depending on how our plans shape up, we’d like to offer the same service to our guests.  Asking around locally seemed to be the way to go when we visited a couple of potential venues.  I found a college student who has friends and the all do extra weekend work like that  – catering, etc – whatever they can do.  As long as they understand they can’t have any alcohol!

Just curious – is the barn yours / your family’s or is it something you are renting?  We’ve been scouring the tri-state area for a barn-wedding that we can afford (do our own catering if possible, BYOB, etc.)  I’d love to know!

What is your approximate budget for the shuttle service? I know that you indicated that you don’t have a lot of money for a shuttle, but do you have some funds? Also, how many guest are you planning on providing this service for? After I get these details, I can hopefully make a good recommendation for a transportation vendor 🙂
