Rather than settling for the trusty family car driven by your father or a friend, how about a more elegant beginning to your most important day?
Arrange transportation for you, your family, or wedding party to the scene of the festivities. This will leave your own car free for any last minute errands and save traffic hassles, ensuring that you and your gown arrive unscathed. There are a variety of transportation options available to couples today.
For those who wish a touch of elegance you can’t go wrong with a traditional limousine, luxury vehicle or classic cars.
Make your arrival and departure part of the experience. Horse drawn carriages, pedicabs or riding in on horseback can all make coming and going special.
Transportation needs for more than just yourselves. After the ceremony, a limousine can easily and safely transport the wedding party and guests to the reception — party coaches carry 15 people or more.
Another nice thing to do for your out-of-town guests is to arrange transportation from the hotel to the wedding and reception and then back again.
If you are going to have guests flying in for your wedding, consider hiring a car service to do airport pickups and drop offs. Ask your wedding day limo/car service if they offer a package deal to include it. Be prepared with at least an estimate of how many trips will be needed and for how many people based on your RSVPs.
Questions to ask when booking:
- Are there are time restrictions?
- Who the specific driver(s) will be for your event?
- What specific vehicles will be for your event?
CAUTION! Whichever type of transportation you chose, be sure to research your selections wisely. Every year we see new transportation businesses come and go, stranding unfortunate couples. Be sure to check references.
