We intend to call cabs to transport our 40 guests from the ceremony at the hotel to the offsite dinner than back to the hotel after.  No one has to drive and its still useful.  Not elegant by any means but gets the job done.

We aren’t doing a limo.

It would be about $700 and I just think that money could be used for way more awesome stuff.

We just borrowed someone’s car, no one really even noticed it.  It was raining, we had to redo our kiss before we left the church for the photographer, and where we got our pics done, only close family was there. 

I wouldn’t bother paying for one, totally not worth it IMO.

I wasn’t going to have one…in fact, I was totally against wasting money on that, but it turns out one of my mom’s cousins owns a limo company so he’s giving us a limo/driver as a wedding present to use all day (score!)

You have a Tahoe and a Hummer and you think that $300 for a limo on your wedding day is expensive? That’s like a week of gas for you two.

@MrsBrightSkies: I totally agree with you, limos are expensive. We have 6 bridesmaids and 6 groomsmen in our party but are also have the significant others join us. We decided to go the party bus route. Limos in my area run from $1,000 just for a couple of hours. We found that if we went with the airport shuttle services, Lakefront Lines. They are charging us $325 for 5 hours, which is much easier to handle. I think that if you are requiring your wedding party to be at specific locations in order to take pictures you really need to make sure that you provide transportation for them. Even if you have someone rent a large van from a place like Enterprise (you can rent a 12 passenger van for about $80 for the day). you would just need to have a friend or someone drive it around for the day.

Some limo companies will just charge a drop off fee. Look into that.

OP – not sure what i would do in your case, but in lieu of a limo, I’ll be taking a good old taxi cab. The venue is a 5 minute walk from my house, so it wasn’t worth it for me to even rent a fancy car for a 1 minute ride lol!
