Some attention should be paid to your wedding transportation.
Transportion can be as simple and no-nonsense or as frivolous as you want it to be.
No matter what your preference, a little legwork, homework and creativity can save you a lot of money.
Some things you may consider are how many people you will transport and your budget. Of course, transporting the bride and groom only, is the cheapest way to go. As budget allows, you can add in the wedding party, parents, grandparents and close friends.
Consider these modes of transport:
- Stretch Limo – the classic choice.
- Town Car – Sometimes a cheaper alternate to Limos.
- Vintage Car – Check around for an old limo or antique Roadster.
- Retro Car – Rent something from the 50s, 60s, or 70s.
- Horse & Buggy – Check locally for a deal on this romantic alternative.
- Van – If you’re considering transporting large groups of people, you may find a deal on a 7 or 12 passenger van.
- Party Bus – A fun way to send large groups.
- Lincolns/Cadillacs – Rent and let the groomsmen escort VIPs.
- Your Own Car – Decorate your own car or a friend’s car for a real bargain.
- Consider the unusual…leave the ceremony in a snowmobile, motorcycles, a rowboat, or a snazzy convertible.
Some wise tips:
- Check references on potential transportation companies.
- Check the company’s cancellation policy
- Go over the rate details thoroughly.
