We are not providing transportation of any kind.  We just can’t afford it.  So we are hoping people will just rent cars to get where they need to go.  Fingers crossed!

I just talked to a limo company today.  Most limos only hold about 18 people max comfortably.  Here is what the limo company recommended (and what we’ll probably go with)

2:00 pm Limo picks Bride, Bridesmaids, and mother up from salon/house/wherever and takes them to the church

2:30 pm: Limo picks Groom, Groomsmen, and other males up from wherever and takes them to the church

After the ceremony (about 4:00 pm) the limo will take the entire group (Bride, Groom, Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, and maybe both sets of parents) to the reception. 

I do not think you are responsible at all for transporting guests.

Oh By The Way, we were quoted that the limo is normally $150/hr but since its during the day they charge $135/hr plus 20% gratuity for the drivers.  3 hr minimum.  We are estimating the cost to be about $500

No, it’s not your responsibility…  but if your wedding is in a city, and Out of Town guests don’t have rental cars, then providing transportation might be nice.  We decided to provide a trolley shuttle for at least some of our guests, so that people who want to drink have the option to not drink and drive.  It takes a load off my shoulders knowing that everyone will be safe!  A lot of our older guests are opting out of the shuttle transportation b/c they’re not big drinkers, and they might want to leave the reception early.

We’re doing limos for the wedding party and our parents/grandparents.  We’re also doing a trolley to get everyone back to the hotel at the end of the night.

It’s costing a fortune, but my family are huge drinkers and I would just feel better knowing that no one was driving.
