Transportation for Your Guests

Who wants their wedding to be overrun by transportation woes? Not you, that's for sure! Enable your guests to relax and party without worrying about how they're getting home by making sure that you have transportation to get them safely from the reception site to the hotel.

If it's in the budget, consider hiring a bus, shuttle or trolley. If you're one of the lucky ones, you might even find that you can use your hotel shuttle for free or for a discounted rate after booking your rooms.

Provide a Timetable

Once you've decided on your transportation company, we suggest you contract them to run to and from the wedding reception at specific hours. For example, if your reception is from 6 to 11 p.m. you might have shuttles leaving the ceremony site at 5:45 p.m., 6:00 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. Then, have shuttles returning to the hotel at 9 p.m., 10 p.m., 10:30 p.m. and 11 p.m. You can put information about shuttle times in the guest welcome packages or on your programs.

Budget Smart

If you have a smaller guest list - and you trust everyone to be ready on time - you might just hire one bus to drop off and pick up wedding guests at one specific time. If you're renting a limo for your bridal party, ask the company if they offer other transportation as well. Booking more than one type of vehicle with the same company may save you some money.

If there's simply no way to work guest transportation into your wedding budget then make sure to ask your wedding reception site to have taxis waiting at the end of the night. Depending on your reception and ceremony locations, you may not even need to provide mass transportation for your wedding guests. If your wedding takes place at multiple locations, however, common courtesy says you should consider your guests' transportation need
