4 TIPS FOR YOUR WEDDING TRANSPORTATION PLAN

Thursday, April 13, 2017

The right wedding transportation will ensure that your wedding day is on time, on the budget, and a lot of fun for everyone involved. As we enter wedding season 2017, start planning your luxury travel now to ensure your wedding transportation is stress-free. Here are four of our best tips for your wedding transportation plan.

SET YOUR BUDGET

The budget will dictate what options are available to you for your wedding transportation. If you are going to be using a luxury travel package, mentally plan for $50-$75 per hour per car and $20-$25 per hour per valet for a parking service. Make sure that you keep tips and any additional fees in mind when making your travel budget.

DECIDE HOW YOU’LL ARRIVE

Arrival and departure are two of the most fun parts of your wedding. So, what do you want to climb into at the end of your wedding and what do you want to enter your reception on? Some of the most common wedding transportation options include traditional stretch limos, classic cars, horse and buggies, a town car, a luxury car, or even your own car.

GET ENOUGH SPACE

When planning out how many vehicles you will need, keep in mind all of the people that will need to travel with you. Will you be riding with the entire wedding party? Will it just be you and your new partner? Keep in mind the capacity of vehicles when planning out your needs. Stretch limos typically fit 10-12 people, limos typically fit 6 people, town cars can accommodate 2-4 people, and other cars can seat different amounts depending on their size.

THINK OF YOUR GUESTS

While the wedding is your special day, you need to keep your guest’s needs in mind! Will your guests be traveling to and from your destination with help from a shuttle or bus? Will guests be driving themselves? Consider mobility needs as well when choosing the right wedding transportation for your guests.
