I’m new here, so I wanted to introduce myself…I’m getting married next April 17th at Giando on the Water in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
I tried searching for answers to my question, but didn’t come up with anything, so I apologize in advance if this has been asked fairly recently.
On my wedding website, I’ve laid out directions to my venue via taxi or car and subway, but I’m worried that all of our out of town guests (who make up approximately 75% of our total guest list) will be put off or confused by this. We’re doing a hotel block in the city that is approximately 10-15 minutes away from the venue via cab, and 20-30 minutes away via subway.
All of us locals know how easy it is to get around, but I’m just worried about confusing people…should I be providing transportation for all guests? I thought about doing a shuttle bus pick up and drop off before and after the wedding, but wasn’t sure how much of an expense this would be? I don’t have a ton of extra money in the budget to play around with.
Did all of you provide transportation, or do you think as long as I provide clear directions/maps on our site, I don’t have to worry about it? If you did use a charter bus or something to that effect, do you mind telling me who you booked through and what I can expect to hear in terms of cost for something like this?
Thanks for your help!
