Is This Tacky?

I've been looking into a few things on transportation, and I wanted a springboard to see if anyone thinks this is tacky/sinful/weird. I have several relatives that are very conscious of this, so I wanted to check.

I want to get married at my parent's farmhouse, where there's a large, flat pasture that's perfect for a wedding, with a lake in the background and facing the setting sun. Beautiful :)
But I digress. My problems are 1). that there's virtually nowhere to park anywhere near as many people as I will probably end up having(just his family and mine number almost 75 people, not to mention our close friends will be pushing about 200), and 2). there's not a reception site closer than about ten miles(we're out in the country, so nothing closer than the county hospital. No joke.).
So here's my idea. I want to find about three or four busses for sale, rent, or whatever, and decorate them as nicely as possible. I then give everyone directions to my reception site (wherever that is), and have them leave their cars there. Then transport them in those couple of busses to my wedding site, and then transport them back to the reception site after the wedding behind my transportation.

Is this weird or tacky? Or is this a creative way to solve a logistics problem?

Any feedback-negative or positive-will be welcomed and greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

    All of this is great advice. I really appreciate all the help. The location isn't a must, and we're still looking, but I wanted to run this idea by someone, just to see what the feedback would be. The thing about the drivers hadn't even crossed my mind. Shows how much I'd really thought about it. :p

    Thanks again.
