Odds are, you’ll want to rock up to your wedding in style. You may even want to treat some of your guests to wild rides in as well. If this is the case, you’ll need to look into wedding transport and everything that comes with it. A bit of pre-planning is needed, so here are some tips to help you avoid bumps in the road.
Check Your Timetable
You won’t need to know every single detail of the day, but have a rough idea of where the bulk of your time will be spent. Also, it might be a good idea to know roughly what times you’ll need transferring from different locations. Incorporate some spare time should any emergencies or inconveniences come your way.
Know Your Numbers
When you begin to look at transport companies, be sure to let them know the kinds of numbers you will be wanting them to move. Each place will provide different vehicles so some might suit your party better than others.
Duration You Will Be Needing Their Services
The majority of companies charge an hourly rate. This applies to when the car is standing idle and when it is chauffeuring you around. It is best to try and figure out an approximation of how long you will really need their services for before you start comparing quotes.
There are so many different ways you can arrive to your wedding nowadays. Vintage vehicles, school buses and horse drawn carriages are amongst the endless possibilities for how you get to the ceremony. Why not surprise the groom by hiring his dream car to bring him to the big day?
Ask each company you consider about the different packages they offer. It is also good to ask about overtime charges as well at this point in case the celebrations overrun. You don’t want any nasty surprises when you receive the bill after the wedding.
Consider Your Guests
This is something you need to bear in mind – especially if some of your friends and family are travelling any great distance to attend your wedding. Ask the hotels local to your venue about taxi firms and shuttle services so that everyone can get home after the party. Also consider anyone who travelled with you to the ceremony – they will need transport of their own too!
Book your services between four and six months before your wedding day. This is especially important if your wedding taking place during peak season or on a holiday such as New Year’s Eve. Remember, the early bird catches the worm.
Hopefully now you know what it is you need to bear in mind when it comes to choosing a wedding transport provider. However, as covered in the second to last point, wedding transport doesn’t necessarily just mean limousines and vintage cars. Make sure all of your guests can get home safely and then you’ll be rolling.
