@MissParrot:  Thank you! My parents thought the bus was great, and they have high standards, so I hope you don’t get swayed if you don’t want to be. I think people will just be grateful you were looking out for their safety and trying to make everything more convenient. Good luck!

@MissParrot:  Honestly shuttles are the best thing as a guest, no matter what form they are in! Nothing better than getting drunk on someone else’s dime AND having a free ride home!

My friend had a school bus to her wedding and we loved it. No one judges a free ride!!

If the drive is 20 minutes or less, a school bus sounds fine!

I am thinking of doing the same thing. Having transportation back to the hotel has alwasy been HUGE for me. Plus, the ride back is always hilarious and a party within itself. No one will think twice about what type of bus it is, they’ll just be happy to be taken care of 🙂 Go for it!!

I think it’s awesome that you’re providing transportation! Your guests can have a great time without worrying about getting back to the hotel. Very thoughtful and responsible. 

Since you’re a teacher (I am, too!), I love the school bus idea. I think your guests will definitely have fun with it and you could get some really fun pics from it!

If I drank too much or didn’t have my car there, I’d just be grateful for the ride.

I hope you can work this kerfuffle out with both sets of parents. I would opt for the cheaper schoolbus. I can’t imagine the venue being very far from the hotel.

Great idea – I would just be happy to have a free ride! Especially if I wanted to ahve a few drinks and then had to drive 30 minutes back to the hotel. Transportation is VERY costly, I found.

It could be super cute. I can’t remember which one but I know one of the bee bloggers used a school bus!

@MissParrot:  I think that is a fun and unique idea! You are being considerate to your guests by providing transportation in the first place. And they will remember it as a unique detail in your wedding!
