Destination Wedding: Who covers travel costs?

July 20, 2018 Comments Off on Destination Wedding: Who covers travel costs?

Q: We are getting married in a remote location. The closest airport is three hours away from the wedding site.Do we need to provide transportation?

A: Typically, transportation arrangements and costs are a guest’s responsibility. However, as hosts you want travel to be as easy as possible for your guests. If the closest airport is three hours away, and many of your guests will be flying, let people know in advance about the best choices for ground transportation. If your budget allows, consider chartering a van that could run at a time that benefits the majority of guests. If you’re truly lucky, a friend or relative may offer to make a run to the airport to collect guests. At the very least, provide contact information for area car rental and limousine service providers in the area.
