Frequently Asked Questions for our out of town guests:
How long should I stay?
You are welcome to stay for as long as you like! For bridal party and close family involved in the wedding, we ask that you at least be present for the night before, the night of, and the day after the wedding. Outside of that and for all of our other guests, your trip is your own and we will be overjoyed to have you for any length of time you feel comfortable with.
What if I want to stay in Boston?
Of course you are more than welcome to stay wherever you like, though we do strongly suggest that our out-of-country guests stay with us at The Inn at the Warren Center for the night of the wedding. We will be providing transportation from the Inn to the church and back on the day of the wedding, but will not then be providing transport for those who wish to return to the city after the reception has ended. If you wish to stay in the city the night of the wedding, you are welcome to find alternative means of returning to the city at the end of the night.
What about the day after?
The day after the wedding, the party will go on! We are planning a free-form, come-as-you are style brunch at the home of Meg’s parents. We don’t expect everyone to be early risers after a late night, so we will be offering periodic transportation from the Warren Center to the house, which is less than a 10 minute drive. As the day progresses, we plan to make our way into the city and everyone is welcome to join us as we expect a fair bit of bar hopping and general mayhem that night.
Should I rent a car?
Boston is a VERY pedestrian friendly city. With one of the best public transportation systems in the country, if you can’t walk to it you can easily catch the subway. For more information you can visit the Massachusetts transit system’s official website www.mbta.com. If you want to venture outside of the city, you can either take the commuter rail (also part of the Massachusetts transit system) or rent a car. Taxis and Uber are also highly useful! We do suggest, that for the time you’re in the city you not bother with a car as parking is hard to come by and very expensive.
I want to go to New York City. How do I get there from Boston?
There are a few ways to get to the Big Apple, but the best by far for price and experience is the bus. You can either take the Greyhound Bus or the Bolt Bus which range in price from $50-$1! The trip is 4.5 hours each way, but the busses do stop half-way for a lunch break. You could also go by train or plane but both of those options will cost upwards of $150 just to get to your destination. New York is an expensive city to visit but very fun.
What should I do when I’m in Boston?
There are so many things to do in this amazing city. Boston is known for great food and some of the earliest historic sites in the United States. We have amazing ethnic neighborhoods and shopping that ranges from couture pieces hot off the NYC runways to the best bargains in the city. While we’re not known for clubbing, our bar scene is down to earth and very fun. If you’re interested in sightseeing at all, we suggest walking the Freedom Trail or taking a Duck Tour (a very fun way to see the city!). We have amazing off-Broadway shows going on all the time and if you’re hungry we strongly suggest taking a look at this list of 50 Things to Eat in Boston Before You Die. If you’re a Red Sox fan, you can take a behind-the-scenes tour of Boston’s Fenway Park to learn all about the oldest existing ballpark in the country. The bottom line is that no matter what you like, you’re going to find something amazing to do in this great city that Alan and I call home. If you have more specific questions or need help making plans, just let us know!
