Three Wedding Transportation Mistakes to Avoid

A bride in a limoThe big day has finally arrived, and love is in the air. Everything seems to have been taken care of, until the parking lot turns into a disaster because there are not nearly enough spaces for the number of cars. This is an example of how minor transportation oversights can cause major headaches when details slip through the cracks. Here are more transportation mistakes to avoid for the big day.

Don’t Forget to Think About All of the Guests

The planning doesn’t stop at the wedding limo. Chances are any out-of-town guests may not be familiar with the area, and it’s also likely that people will be a bit tipsy at the end of the night. If there is room in the wedding budget, providing event transportation like a shuttle or bus to bring all the wedding guests to the ceremony, reception, and back to their hotels (or at least a practical central drop off point) will make things a lot easier. At the very least, make sure that every guest has the number for a local taxi company and/or access to a ride-hailing app.

Don’t Limit Transport to Just the Ceremony

A wedding is more than just a single event: couples traditionally tie in a rehearsal dinner, reception, and honeymoon. Factor in the bachelorette/bachelor and engagement parties, and you quickly get numerous events where people are drinking late into the evening. Consider getting a stretch SUV for the bridal party and groomsmen, and booking a separate limo to and from the airport for the honeymoon.

Do Your Research on the Transportation Company

When quality and timeliness matter, don’t rely on a cut-rate wedding limo provider. Make sure to book with a limo service that has an exemplary record and excellent reviews from its customers. It’s also a good idea to make sure the limo company actually owns the vehicles being rented: some transportation providers rent the vehicles through third parties, which can make things complicated in the event of damage to the interior or exterior of the vehicle.
