Our wedding is in October in Tulum, MX, which we're extremely excited about.  Have about 60 people all flying out there.  

For those who have done this before, how do you keep your traveling guests informed about stuff?  It seems like a lot of nitty-gritty details to put on our simple little wedding website.   I thought about making just a big email chain with those 60 people so they can see who else is flying in at what time, etc., to split transportation costs.   But seems like that email would get out of control.  Has anyone else thought about this issue? Is a Facebook event page too tacky? Any other options?

we had our travel agent handle all those details like arranging transportation. 

we thought about setting up a facebook group so our 60 guests could interact with each other, but most we have quite a few non-facebook users so it didn't seem worth it. we did send a few all guest email blast recently, especially since we're all flying out in the next day or so.

Whoa, 60 guests as well! Guest twins! 

That sounds about what we were thinking of doing,  although I just came across Guest Board on another forum, which seems to be what I'm looking for, kind of a private forum for our out-of-town guests.  I think it's also free.  That or someone mentioned Yahoo Groups?  I haven't looked into that one as much.

Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/

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 :)
