The Dos and Don’ts of Wedding Transportation

Congratulations are in order; you're getting hitched! Selecting transportation for your big day requires more thought than just the look and style of your ride. Follow our directions on hiring your perfect transportation service.

Don't: Wait until the last minute to book your vehicle 

Don't wait until the last minute, reserve your car at least six months before your wedding if possible.

Do: Offer rides to the bridal party.

Riding together guarantees you all arrive at the ceremony at the same time. 

Do: Consider shuttling guests if your budget allows.

If your wedding guests are out-of-towners, it's a thoughtful gesture to offer rides. Plus, guests will be able to enjoy all the reception festivities. 

Don't: Forget to get a headcount.

Add a message to your RSVP cards asking who's interested in day-of transportation. This number will also influence which mode of transport—a trolley, school bus, van—best fits the size of your crowd.

Do: Ask about discount packages.

Don't be afraid to ask your transportation company about potential discounts if you book one or more services such as a bachelorette party as well as wedding day festivities. 

Do: Read the contract before signing and paying a deposit.

The agreement should list all the details, including hourly and overtime rates, cancellation fees, deposit due date, types, color, and the number of vehicles you'll be renting.
