You should try to reserve some rooms at a local hotel and provide the info for your guests.  This way they know where to go.  Also, it is proper etiquette but I don’t know if you want to follow it, OT guests are invited to the rehearsal dinner.

As for entertaining you don’t really have to do much more.  I think they know that you’ll be busy.

We were just discussing this with Fiance – I think unless there’s some reason they can’t take care of themselves (a single person who doesn’t know anyone, people without a car, coming from a foreign country, etc), you’re not expected to do anything besides providing a hotel and some recommendations for things to do.

You can set up a small wedding website with recommendations for everything ( I LOVE hotwire and priceline for hotels,    but they work best in big cities ) .        They are adults and will be just fine !

A weding website for things to do would be really helpful. And even though you’re going to be busy (I totally understand that), it’s really polite and gracious to host some kind of welcome party. Nothing fancy, but just something where everyone can meet everyone else, maybe find some friends to do something with. My parents went to two weddings in Charleston this summer and both had a pre-wedding activity. One was a BBQ and the other was a cocktail party. Both laid back and still really fun. They actually liked those better than the actual reception.

I agree with KM….a welcome bbq or party would be a nice gesture. We plan on doing this for my sister’s wedding. That is actually where the wedding guests will get their gift bags which will contain maps, things to see and do, coupons, etc. It will be a great opportunity to figure out what people are staying close to each other and figure out carpooling and thigns like that. Plus…if they are close family or friends…they can help with any last minute DIY projects….Laughing
