Wedding Transportation for Your Event

Jul 21, 2008
Arranging transportation is one of the earliest tasks to do when planning your event. As soon as the venue is chosen and your have decided on the number of people in the wedding party, hiring a transport service should be next on the list. Why? Because a well planned event requires good timing and the number of people to be transported and the time it takes to move them from one location to the next is an important part of a smoothly running day.

Arranging transportation is one of the earliest tasks to do when planning your event. As soon as the venue is chosen and your have decided on the number of people in the wedding party, hiring a transport service should be next on the list. Why? Because a well planned event requires good timing and the number of people to be transported and the time it takes to move them from one location to the next is an important part of a smoothly running day.

The first leg of the journey through the day starts with transporting the bridal party from the location where they get ready to the ceremony site. Traditionally the bride and attendants along with the bride's parents are brought together to the site. If the bridal party is large, multiple trips can be made provided it is arranged in advance with the transportation service. The groom and groomsmen do not usually ridetogether, instead they arrange their own transportation to the ceremony.

After the ceremony, anything goes. Many couples choose to have the entire wedding party transported from the ceremony to the reception, but it's acceptable to transport only the bride and groom, or the bride, groom, best man and maid of honor. If you'll be transporting the whole gang, again, multiple trips or multiple vehicles may be necessary. Once everyone is present and accounted for, the topic of transportation is over.

Once the logistics are planned out, it is time to start searching for a transport company. Be sure to double-check the budget for the amount allocated for transportation. Some options can be stylish but pricy. Along with the standard limousine, you can hire a stretch Hummer or SUV, both of which can hold large groups. Another possibility is a classic or vintage vehicle.How about hiring a party bus or trolly. a horse-drawn carriage. a boat, snowmobile, motorcycle with sidecar, or even a hot-air balloon! A personal vehicle perhaps decorated for the occasion is the lowest priced option.

Ask transport companies about package deals that may be available with added frills like complementary champagne or transportation for the couple at the end of the event. Always review any contract before signing. Carefully check the date, pick-up times, cost, and any extras that are agreed upon, the assigned driver and the clothing he/she will wear, and any cancellation/refund policy.
