Weddings take a lot of planning. In between finding the perfect dresses and/or tuxes, the right venue, the guest list, the food ... you might wind up neglecting something very important: Wedding transportation.
If you want to be able to ride to your wedding in style, you're going to have to do some planning.
Getting there is all part of the storybook experience that you deserve.
Here are some tips to planning your wedding transportation without a hitch!
This is not something you should leave until the last minute.
Especially if you're getting married during prom season, limos and other luxury wedding transportation options will be in high demand. You need to book yours in advance.
Of course, there are a few things you need to decide before you book your transportation. Things like the venue and date will need to be decided on before so that your transportation knows where to go.
But, still, you need to prioritize your wedding transportation early and work with them up to the date.
If you leave things until the last minute, you'll be scrambling to find someone who is available. You will probably end up with a less-than-perfect service, which can really put a damper on the day that is supposed to be about you and your spouse-to-be.
Instead, start early and make sure your special day is just that.
Decide Who You're Transporting
Make no mistake: you aren't required to transport your guests from the wedding to the reception, or to their hotel.
But it can be polite to do so, especially for your bridal party or any out of town guests.
Deciding who you are going to transport will help you figure out what kind of service you need. Do you need a limo that can handle a bunch of guests? Or a smaller SUV?
For our part, we're more than willing to pick up your out of town guests from the airport or ferry terminal.
Whether you decide on transporting guests or not, it's important that you let them know in advance what your plans are. That way, you can make sure that they have accommodations if they need them.
Not having this planned and communicated in advance can lead to a lot of hassle. Avoid that by making sure you have a game plan.
Get Your Wedding Planner Involved
Everything in your wedding matches. Your dress compliments the flowers, your decor matches your theme.
Why shouldn't your wedding transportation fit in, too?
You deserve nothing less than the best, so don't be afraid to get your wedding planner involved in the transportation planning. A truly good transportation service will be more than happy to work with them!
Extra decorations or similar things on your wedding transportation make for a beautiful photo op, and you deserve to have that option.
