I am not from the Auston area but am so excited about getting married at the Barr Mansion this fall!
I am hoping for some advice about hotels/shuttles because almost all of our guests will be from out of town and traveling quite a distance.
My mother (who is paying for the majority of the wedding costs) is really excited about staying downtown, her friends seeing downtown, etc. My fiance's side is on the more economical less interested in citylife side...
So...I am trying to decide between downtown and the Arboretum area to book for hotel blocks.
If I book in both areas which I am considering, then I think am pretty much obligated to book two shuttles for guests to and from the wedding (I really think this is important to do since so many are traveling and I don't know how many will rent cars).
Another factor...we booked the wedding date a long time ago and it is the same day as one of the UT football games. The wedding ceremony will start at 6 PM. Does that mean downtown will be crazy that weekend and difficult to get shuttles in/out of the area? Or is this feasible?
I think my mom will be really disappointed if I don't book hotels downtown or don't have a shuttle to donwtown...
Finally, any suggestions as to specific hotels in either area? We don't want the super pricey places but not motel style either!
