Wedding Day Transportation for Guests
Family and friends come from miles around to celebrate with you on your wedding day. Providing transportation for your guests save them from rental car expenses, lets them have  fun and party at your wedding and reception yet still make it back to their hotels and homes safely and responsibly.
At Jameson Creations, we see this a lot and when a bride comes to us with this dilemma, we are able to give her some helpful advice and tips. Check these out: 

1) Depending on the size of your wedding you may be able to hire a standard bus such as a school bus to make one trip for pick up and drop off. This will require all guest to be ready, but scheduling a time and making this known to guests can allow them to prepare and plan to be ready so their evening is fun and stress free. If you are already renting a limo or car for the wedding party, ask them about other transportation- which typically equals savings for you. 

2) If it is in the wedding budget, shuttle buses are really popular and typically work for larger wedding guest parties. Multiple trips can be made at specific hours that are designed with the bride and groom dependent on the time of their wedding. This helps to make sure guests make it to the wedding festivities on time and also helps with families that may have small children and need to leave the party earlier. 

3) You may check with the hotel you have chosen for guest lodging to see if they have a shuttle service available. If the wedding and reception site is in close proximity, they may offer it at a discounted rate or even free to hotel guests. There is typically charge that can range anywhere from $15-$25 per trip. 

Your wedding day should be a great time for you and your guests. Providing this service will show you went the extra mile to ensure they fully enjoy your wedding day.
