This is the day you have been dreaming about since you were little, your wedding day. You may have your binder full of potential wedding dresses, options for your bridesmaids and groomsmen, centerpieces and refreshments along with your favorite songs for the dancing portion of the night. Have you given a second thought about transportation? When it comes to transportation for the bride and groom as well as the wedding party, there isn’t any other means of transportation like a limousine. A Limo World is here to talk about what needs to be done to prepare for the transportation portion of your wedding day.
Wedding Event Transportation Schedule
Think about the things that you will need to accomplish for your wedding. This might include hair, makeup, wedding rehearsal dinner and more. Once you have mapped out the general needs for your wedding, you can start finding a transportation company that will be able to meet those needs the best. When you are coming up with your basic timeline, make sure you are putting plenty of wiggle room in your schedule to account for potential delays like traffic. You should start this process 4 to 6 months before your wedding so you can easily find a transportation company that isn’t already booked on that date.
Budget the Cost of Wedding Limo Rentals
It is so easy to get carried away when you are planning a wedding. Everything from the décor to the food to the clothes, weddings cost money. When putting your transportation into your budget be sure to account for cost per hour, mileage costs and the distance you will be traveling when booking your limo. Prices vary between companies, but many require a minimum of 3-4 hour reservations.
Get Your Limousine Reservation in Writing
You don’t want anything to go wrong on the day of your wedding. When you reserve your transportation, make sure you get it in writing and read the fine print. Your reservation should include information like gratuity policies, total costs, deposits required, time specifications as well as location of pick up/drop offs. Your reservation should also include the company’s cancellation and refund policy.
Consider Transportation Needs of Your Wedding Guests
You may have some guests that will be in need of other transportation services. While some people will be partying until 2 a.m. on the night of the wedding, others may want to call it a night much earlier. Think about what transportation needs your guest list will require.
Get Creative With Wedding Party Transportation
If you want to think outside the box, consider other means of transportation like horse drawn carriage or antique and vintage cars. This is a way to really make an entrance. Choosing the right transportation for your wedding will ensure all eyes are on you when you arrive for your wedding ceremony.
