I’m very interested to see people’s responses, because I have this same question.  Our wedding and reception will be up in the hills, and my Fiance is worried about (specifically his friends) tipsy driving back down the hill.  But the thing is, do we do a shuttle the whole hour back to where we all live? Have hotel rooms right near the site and just have them drive to there and then shuttle them back to there?  Just say oh well you’re adults you can figure it out? gahhh I don’t know

OP – you can still block rooms off at hotels even if you personally aren’t staying there, so why don’t you do that for the added convenience for your guests.  Some hotels may even offer shuttle buses if you block rooms off – it’s definitely worth making phone calls and asking around.

I live in Chicago, and most transportation companies require a 3 hour minimum, so if that’s also the case where you live then you could hire a bus/shuttle for 3 hours and have them drive back and forth.  To me, the effort is worth it b/c your guests will appreciate it.

@AshleyR83:  Exactly.  Block some rooms for your guests, and then you’ll have a home base for the shuttles.  This is what we are doing for our wedding.  But yes, there is a minimum.  It’s 8 hours for our location, so we have (and have to pay for) the shuttles for the whole day.
