When you’re busy making plans for a wedding, it may seem that every detail is something major. A lot of those seemingly major decisions end upswept in the planning, most importantly transportation. You need to consider how your bridal party and other people at the wedding will get around on your big day.
Making a big entrance and impressive wedding limos aside, you will need to be aware of the exact route you will take from the ceremony to your reception. You need to know how you will travel and before you do that, you need to find the right company, making the first steps. The following examples will give you a few pointers, so you can get things done right:
- Book Your Limo Online
There is a reason why ordering online is convenient and easy. You can have a copy of the reservation and confirmation done on your phone or computer, but when you book online, you should screenshot the details of the order, as well as the pertinent confirmation information. When this is done, the information will be easy to find and access, whenever you feel like it. Brides or grooms who share the screenshot can also keep people informed of the plans and where the limo is going.
- Ask For A Backup Route Plan
Although it may seem like overkill, since you will trust the driving service to know your immediate area, having a route plan will help select the best route from point A to point B. A backup plan will account for heavy traffic, unseen road accidents and other issues. Your wedding may be planned ahead of time, but unexpected circumstances happen, so you would do well to have a backup plan just in case.
- Research the Limo Company
Since not every service will have what you need, some may even be downright disappointing. You should ask a few important questions before you commit and hire one. Can you decorate the vehicle? Will all your guests fit inside? Can you take photos inside? Is the car of your choice available on your wedding day? Can the car be in the wedding photos? With a good and classy limo ride, you won’t have to worry about transportation at all. You want a company that arrives on time and gets the job done right.
- Figure Out Who Needs Transport
Though the bride and bridal party are the main stars of the limo’s arrival, you need to consider how everyone else will be transported. There is also the need to take multiple venues in mind. How will the group get from the ceremony to the reception, if the limo ride is private? Consider the newlyweds, but also the wedding party, both sets of parents, grandparents and siblings as you get your plans prepared.
If you want to be especially considerate to your guests, you can hire a limo to transport the out-of-town guests as well. For a more budget-oriented approach, you should consider renting a party bus, instead of using separate transportation for a lot of guests. You could also use the limo service as a way to have a little privacy and comfort with your new spouse. It will give you breathing room before the main event and the start of the party.
- Book Ahead of Time
This is something very important to keep in mind. Whenever graduation season or proms arrive, limos are hired all the time, so you may need to schedule months in advance if you want to even have a free slot to have your limo ride.
