Does the hotel offer shuttle service? We are using our hotel shuttle service.

Oh man, we’re having the same issue. I think we’re actually going to do some earlier photos in the lobby of the hotel since it’s so pretty, and then just do a few big group photos at the venue pre-ceremony.

A friend of mine couldn’t afford limos and so she traveled that day in a minivan and her dress was perfectly fine when she got to the reception.  She had the whole back seat to herself so she and the dress could spread out as much as necessary.

What about getting a towncar, instead of a limo? They usually work on a point to point basis, rather than an hourly rate (like a limo does), so it’s cheaper. That’s what we’re doing and it’s about $75/trip (they’re short, like yours would be).

You could also look into renting a nice SUV from a rental car place (like enterprise or hertz). They usually have really good rates on the weekends and you could designate someone to be your driver. Might be a nice way to include a brother or cousin or someone in the festivities. Since you would have the SUV for the whole day/weekend, you could use it to transport decorations or even use it for the get away car, etc. Hope this helps!

We’re renting a 12 passenger van to use as transportation.  An aqaintance (someone who wasn’t initally invited to the wedding) will be our driver.  He’ll cart us around and then drive people to and from the Hotel – 14 miles away.  It was so much cheaper than a limo.
