Wedding Transportation

Transportation is another aspect of your wedding.

First you will need to figure how many cars you need, and what types.

Start by counting the number of people who will need transportation in your bridal party. If your budget is tight, you may ask the bridal party to drive themselves. Also a chauffeured town car is frequently less expensive than a chauffeured limousine.

Next decide if you want the limo for the entire event, including for taking everyone to the ceremony, then from the ceremony to the reception, and then home after the reception.

Remember that limo companies often have a minimum amount of time-so even if you only hire them for twenty minutes, you may end up paying the same as if you had hired them for three hours.

Try to at least if your budget is tight to have at least one limousine or town car to take the bride and bridesmaids to the ceremony, and a limousine or town car to take the bride and groom from the ceremony to the reception site.

This will allow your bridesmaids to stretch out, thus minimizing wrinkling of their dresses. It will also allow the bride and groom to have some time alone together while neither of them has to concentrate on the road.

The typical scenario (example)

The bride and bridal party will transport themselves to the reception site where there is a room for them to change clothes and get prepared.

A limo will come to pick them up, and deliver them to the ceremony site.

Next the groomsmen will transport themselves to the ceremony site, and the best man should give a ride to the groom. After the ceremony, the limo takes the bride and groom to the reception site, while the groomsmen give rides to the bridesmaids.

At the end of the evening, the bride and groom are picked up in a getaway car(that is decorated), and the bridesmaids and groomsmen all have their own cars to drive themselves home.
