Cruising into Forever

You’ve done just about everything when it comes to planning your wedding- you’ve chosen your bridal party, booked a venue, hired a caterer, found a florist, and selected your photographer. 

There’s just one detail left that you might not have considered: how you and your bridal party are going to get to and from the venue.

Arranging transportation for the day of your wedding can be easily forgotten, but if you want to ride to and from your ceremony in style, we’ve got your back! 

Booking a Service

The best way to narrow down options for which car or limousine service you should choose is to look at reviews from their previous customers. Knowing that they can be trusted to get you to and from your venue safely and on time is the most important thing to look for. 

Just like with many other aspects of wedding planning, you can always ask other newlywed couples for their recommendations. You’ll rest assured with the knowledge that someone you know and trust had a good experience. 

You’ll also want to be sure that the company you’re considering offers the types of vehicles and number of vehicles you want and need before booking them. Knowing your guest capacity in advance will help with this.

Pro-tip: Make sure to ask about any fees for traveling over a certain distance! This will help ensure you stay within your budget and aren’t surprised when it comes time to pay the bill.

Making the VIP List

Don’t worry: you don’t have to include everyone who is attending your wedding in the headcount for who will be included in your transportation. 

Your first step should be to establish who your VIPs are and start your list there. This usually includes your bridal party and close family such as parents, siblings, and grandparents. 

Next, make sure to include your photographer, videographer, and officiant. This guarantees that the people who must be there on time, make it. And it’s the proper etiquette for working with your vendors.

Lastly, you can consider providing transportation for those traveling from out of town who may not have a vehicle. This isn’t always necessary thanks to rideshare services, but it’s a nice touch if your budget allows for it – especially if you know rideshare services are limited or not available.

If there’s someone who you think should make the cut but we didn’t mention them, be sure to include them. This is your day, and it’s up to you! 

Timing Everything Out

When it comes to your wedding day, you absolutely don’t want unexpected traffic or delays to make you late!

We recommend adding about 20-30 minutes to the typical amount of time traveling to the venue would take. If you’ll be going to multiple venues, make sure you consider how long it will take to get from one to the next.

Lastly, don’t forget to arrange a ride to wherever you’ll be spending the night. Whether you’re heading home, to a hotel, or a different destination after the reception, it’ll make it so much easier if you don’t have to worry about it after celebrating all night.

That’s it; you’ve done all the planning you need for booking transportation. We know how exciting it is that all the little details are coming together!
