Tips when Booking Wedding Transportation
One of the most important but often the most overlooked aspect of a wedding is the transportation. In the excitement of hiring a photographer and finding your dream dress, it can be easy to forget how you are getting to your venue. This can often result in a last-minute decision being made with little thought and consideration. Choosing cars or limos isn’t always the most exciting part of wedding planning. But it can help to bring style, personality and comfort to you and your guests on your special day. So instead of forgetting all about it, here are some useful suggestions to make planning and booking wedding transportation a breeze 🙂
To begin with, you need to get some transportation inspiration. Look for wedding vehicle ideas on bridal blogs, wedding websites and in magazines to see what other couples have used. This can range from stretch limos to retro cars. Getting inspiration can help you feel more enthusiastic about which mode of transport you want to use for your big day. Think about whether you want to transport all of your guests or whether you want to just book a car for your bridal party. Once you’ve got a few ideas, start shopping around on transport hire websites. This should give you a better idea of how much it costs to hire a vehicle as well as giving you details on sizes and services. It’s also worthwhile to check your wedding budget to make sure can afford to hire your dream car or limo.
Check it out before you book
Many companies provide details and photographs and allow you to book their vehicles online. But always inspect the vehicle in person first. Some companies may say their cars and limos are of a high quality and safe, but you won’t know unless you see them beforehand. It’s always better to do this before signing contracts or paying up front to avoid any nasty surprises. Schedule a suitable time with the companies you are looking at to inspect the vehicle you want to book and ask for a test drive. This will make it easier to determine whether this is the right car for you or not.
Book in advance
One of the most important things you need to remember when booking transportation is to do it as early as possible. Transport hire companies experience peak times during the year when they are most in demand. If you book too late, you could find it difficult to get the vehicle you desire, at the right price and on the right day. So the sooner you get on booking wedding transportation, the better. Booking in advance also gives you additional time to plan a suitable route and create a detailed itinerary with the contracted company. This can help make your wedding day more organized and less stressful, by avoiding busy roads.
