Planning a wedding is a serious thing and there are so many details that require your attention. However, by making plans carefully and in advance, you can make sure your big day goes without a hitch.
Wedding day transportation is definitely an aspect that takes some serious planning. Here’s how to make sure your plan it to perfection.
Book the vehicle in advance
Whether you have a month or six months to organize your wedding, transportation should be one of the first things to plan. If you are getting married in the prom season (April-June), it’s highly likely that the best vehicles will already be booked months in advance. Don’t risk ending up without the limo you want just because you didn’t take the planning schedule seriously.
See the vehicles before renting
Even though online limo rental has become much safer, you should still make the effort to book your wedding day limo in person. Even if the rental company delivers everything in terms of quality, the limo you rent may not fit some of your stylistic preferences. To make sure that doesn’t happen, visit the rental company and see the fleet yourself.
Don’t forget your bridal party
Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are going to play an important part in your wedding, so it might be a good idea to organize special transportation for them. It’s a nice gesture that speaks volumes about how much you appreciate their friendship and support. Besides, imagine how cool it would be if you rented a party bus just for them to get the party started before the actual reception? You can even consider traveling to the venue with them – the fun is 100% guaranteed!
Consider booking transportation for your guests
Broadly speaking, you are not expected to provide transportation for your guests. But even a little consideration can go a long way in making sure everyone arrives fresh and in a good mood. After all, you also want the guests to arrive on time so the ceremony and reception can go as planned. What would you do if they get stuck in traffic or can’t find a cab?
You could rent a limo bus or a coach so your guests can arrive safely, comfortably and on time. If you have a lot of out-of-town guests, you should organize transportation from their hotel and back. And finally, there is bound to be some drinking at the wedding, so make sure your guests can also get home safely.
Account for the wait time
When planning the budget, don’t forget that most car and limo rental companies charge by the hour. This means that you should account for the time the chauffeur will have to wait for the reception to end so they can drive you or your guests back home.
Your wedding day is not an everyday event. This means that you are allowed to be a bit extravagant. If you are renting a luxurious limo, you have every right to request your favorite champagne, the type of music that will make the day even more memorable, and even a special dress-code for the chauffeur. Limo rental companies that offer wedding specials should cater to their clients’ needs and preferences.
