Transportation????

Recommended Posts

Since I am leaving it up to ppl to book their own hotel..am I responsible for providing transportation to the wedding? I wouldn't mind it but ppl might be at different hotels and my head is already hurting thinking about it...lol!

 

Any suggestions would be helpful!

 

TIA

hmmm.... Personally I don't think it's up to you, it sounds like it would be really complicated & stressful to try and set that up for people staying at all different places. I assume, your guests know it's their responsibility - but thats just me!

I don't think it's your responsibility either seeing as the guests will be all over the place. That'll drive you insane trying to organize everyone! I would make sure that it's clear with your guests though that they have to arrange their own transportation. You wouldn't want them to assume wrongly and be upset with you in the end.

I don't think it is up to you to provide transportation. I just decided to provide transportation for my guests because we aren't getting married on the strip and it will be hard to find transportation back to the reception site since taxi's do not regularly come to the chapel. However, I am telling them they have to meet at a particular hotel where most of the guests are staying so they can get on the mini bus. Then if they happen to provide their own transportation to the chapel, they will have a ride back on the mini bus.

That is a good idea..if the majority of the guests stay at the same hotel..that would be nice...I was also thinking about getting some type of bus pass/tram pass to go in the oot bags...but I guess I better make sure to let folks know they are responsible for their own transportation...


Thanks ladies for the advice!!

It would be a nice touch for you to provide transportation. My girlfriend had her wedding off the strip and she provided a bus there and back. I would book the bus first and tell him you will give him the destination a little later but it will be a one of the hotels. Then find out where the majority of your guests are staying and have everyone meet there at a certain time. The guest that arent staying there wont mind hoping into a $5.00 cab.

Hope that helps

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
