One detail that can sometimes be forgotten by brides is how they will be transported to their wedding venue. The more traditional approach is renting a black limo, but nowadays, brides like to put their personal spin on their wedding day transportation. Several brides have opted to use school buses to safely shuttle their guests to and from their hotel and the wedding ceremony and reception. Other brides have used party buses for their bridal party. Some have even taken a few notes from the royal family and rent a 1950’s Bentley for their grand entrance. No matter your style or wedding theme, our 5 wedding day transportation tips will help you better understand the process you’re about to face.
1. A limo is not the only choice. It may be traditional, but if it’s not your style, you have plenty of other options! You can show up in style in a 1950’s Bentley like this one from Grace Limousines, or you could hire a sleek town car or even a party bus! If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, consider utilizing your local school bus company or the shuttle bus service from the airport. Both of these options are a great way to save your budget and leave everyone smiling.
2. Think about your guests. When booking a party bus, school bus, shuttle bus, or any large transportation, this can be an excellent opportunity to include your guests. Making sure your loved ones safely reach their hotel is everyone’s top priority and with hiring a service to transport everyone, is one of the best ways to tell your guests just how much you love them.
3. Make a playlist. Make sure you pump yourself, your bridal party, and guests up to let loose and have an amazing time at the wedding reception. Everyone will be entering your venue with a big smile and prepared to celebrate your love!
4. Leave enough time. No matter if you choose to shuttle guests to and from their hotel or you are just transporting yourself, make sure leave more than enough time to get to the venue. Traffic can be unpredictable, and you don’t want to be late!
5. Be specific. When booking your transportation, make sure that your vendor is fully aware of the type of vehicle you need, how many you’ll need, and the entire schedule with the included buffer time, just in case.
