Arrive in style and make an unforgettable exit with your wedding transportation. Wedding Transportation is one of the important details on every wedding planning checklist. More than just the couple require transportation on this special day. Let’s delve into everything you need to know about planning your wedding transportation.
Where do we begin with planning the wedding transportation? The answer usually requires a careful look at the budget and a headcount. You will not be expected to provide transportation for every person on your guest list. The couple should match their theme and always make a statement with their transportation. The parents of the couple make the VIP list and ride in style on this special day. Depending on the size of the wedding party, you might consider a limo or a party bus to transport your special people. Elderly and those with special needs might require special transportation. Some couples arrange for a shuttle to transport out of town guests. Once you have your headcount, you can count your cars and determine exactly what your event requires.
Timeline for Booking Wedding Transportation
You should book your wedding transportation about five to six months prior to your wedding day. This falls perfectly onto the timeline after most of the thematic details are planned, but enough time in advance to guarantee the availability of transportation. Keep in mind that the limited number of vehicles and the increase in the number of weddings can present challenges when you want a popular car. If you want an Aston Martin or a rare vintage ride, you might need to book a little earlier in the planning process.
What You Should Consider
One of the most important factors should be reputation. If your wedding transportation does not arrive on time for your big day, neither will you. Interview your wedding transportation service and read their reviews. If your wedding venue has a concierge service to connect you with wedding vendors, book from their vendor list. The wedding venue has already read the reviews, done the interviews and created a relationship with vendors. There is more to consider than reputation. Most couples want to create a lasting impression and make an iconic exit. How do you make that glamorous and luxurious exit of your dreams? Choose a vehicle that matches your theme. If you are planning a Great Gatsby inspired theme, you want to roll up in the 1932 Duesenberg SJ. This might be an expensive find, if you are able to find it, but it would be the showstopper. If you are planning a classic wedding, you might choose the Rolls-Royce or any stylish car that meets your taste.
Coordinating the Wedding Transportation
Coordinating the wedding transportation can get tricky, especially if you are moving a large group of people. You will need to lock down important locations in the plan, such as the location for picking up the wedding party on the day of the event and the precise time of arrival at your venue. If you are planning to arrive two hours prior to your event, you will need to factor in the travel time from each location and add an additional half hour for unexpected delays. If you are hosting your wedding in a different location than the reception, you will need to coordinate transportation between venues. The best way to simplify transportation between venues is to host your wedding ceremony and reception at the same venue.
