Just hope they can hire a car or negotiate a cheap taxi price.
Also Ive finalised and paid for all wedding extras through Lomas travel, only to find an extra family member has dedcided to attend. I found out LAST NIGHT!! So I dont have enough name cards, favour boxes, chairs, bows, boutineres, food, drink etc and need to add onto the lomas booking. There is a 5 hour time difference to consider and we fly out to mexico NEXT Friday!!! Talk about stressed.
BUT I'm determined not to let these little hitches ruin the day!!!
Just a tip to those who have more time for planning.....no matter how much you plan to perfection, expect some last minute hic-ups and then at least you wont being stressing as much as me!!
Don't worry to much about the extra guests in terms of the food, drink and set up. The WC were awesome with dealing with that (I had 3 extra guests tell me within the last week). As for the name cards, favours....do the best you can (even if it's just a piece of white card stock with their name on it). Don't let this get you down! One week away- so exciting!
As for your bridesmaid and transport. I would suggest she tries to arrange transportation ahead of time, especially if she has a baby and gear in tow. I have been using Lomas transfer for 3 years now, and can say they are fantastic. Always polite, punctual and prices are good. http://www.lomas-travel.com/transfers/ You can even see the prices of Hotel-hotel. Usually it would be about $180-200 roundtrip depending on which hotel she is staying at (with the distance you suggested). My guess the same distance with a cab would likely be $140-160.
