When it comes to planning your wedding, the devil is truly in the details. And nothing can be more overwhelming than working out the finer points to ensure that the day goes smoothly and all of your guests have a fantastic time. Planning your wedding transportation doesn’t have to be a huge headache, but being unprepared can definitely put a downer on the festivities. So, we’ve compiled this list of professional tips that can help make booking your wedding transportation a breeze.
This might sound simple, but it can be the hardest part of booking your wedding transportation. Not only do you need to have a realistic but affordable budget for transportation (and we know juggling those numbers is no small feat), but the timeline is critical, as well. Working out the general schedule of the day, including locations, directly informs your transportation needs. As your plan for your day comes together, these answers will become clear, no matter how overwhelming it may seem in the beginning. Once you’ve got a feel for your requirements, it’s time to find a transportation company that can meet them and 5 things to look for in a wedding transportation provider.
Not only do you want to ensure that your chosen transportation company is fully licensed and insured, but you’ll also want to go over the schedule closer to the day. The more detailed your itinerary, the more prepared your hired wedding transportation company can be. Locations, timelines and number of passengers is essential. Other details like preferred directions (or back up directions in case of traffic issues) will be greatly appreciated, as it means you get exactly what you want. And of course, going over the numbers never hurts. Be sure to double check final pricing, including taxes and any other additional fees you may be incurring so that there are no surprises.
There are lots of ways to use transportation to enhance your wedding and the experience of your guests. If you are providing transportation for guests as they leave the wedding, remember that people may want to leave at different times. Consider renting a particular type of vehicle(s) to match the style of your event or as a surprise for an honored guest.
