Your Wedding Day Transportation Guide

Your Wedding Day Transportation Guide

Just like any tough problem, planning your wedding day transportation should answer the 5 w’s: who, what, when, where and why. We’ve put together this guide to help answer these questions and solidify your transportation plan.


Who do you need to provide transportation for? Just the wedding party for photos, or do you need to transport family members, as well? If your wedding is in your hometown, chances are, many guests will have their own transportation. If it’s a destination wedding, however, you may have to consider getting guests from the ceremony to the reception.


What exactly do you need on your wedding day? Once you’ve answered the “who” question, you’ll have a firm number so you can determine the size or number of vehicles you’ll need to charter for your big day.


Throughout your wedding planning, you’ve likely created a detailed schedule for how the day should go. Use this and your answers to the previous questions to figure out exactly when you need to have transportation show up and when people need to be dropped off.


It’s easy to forget how many locations are involved on your wedding day. The bridal party and groomsmen are likely getting ready in different locations. Then there’s the, the photo locations and the reception. Ensure you have a plan to get everyone where they need to be regardless of the complexity of your wedding festivities!


This is the big one. Why are you doing this again? Oh right, it’s stressful and crazy but it’s really just all about you and the one you love committing your lives to each other and beginning a beautiful life together.

Jokes aside, the “why” question can really help you cut out unnecessary expenditures or pick up on important details you may have overlooked. Do you really need to offer transportation to every single guest from the ceremony to the reception, for example? It’s not a typical arrangement and there’s certainly no etiquette rules that state that it’s a must.

Remember why you’re having a wedding in the first place: giving your friends and loved ones an opportunity to bear witness to the depth of your commitment. So while you might not need to transport all of your guests, make sure you haven’t overlooked anything like a beloved elderly family member who you could make plans for, just to ensure they make it there with ease.
