Your wedding day needs to be perfect. Like most couples, you’ve probably spent months (if not longer) planning every detail of the wedding – where it’s going to be, who’s invited, decorations, music, entertainment, food, and so on.
However, one thing that’s often overlooked is transportation. A single hitch in getting people from point A to point B can throw off the entire ceremony or reception. But don’t worry, we’re here to help.
Take a look at our tips for managing your wedding transportation logistics.
1. Lock Down the Locations
If you haven’t already, you need to figure out what locations will be in play for the wedding and the reception. This may also include where the wedding parties need to be picked up to start getting ready.
These locations are vital in determining what vehicles you need. If, for example, you’re holding your wedding ceremony at your favorite camping spot in the mountains, limousines may not be able to make the commute. Outdoor weddings can be great, but some will limit your options in terms of accommodations.
2. Figure Out What Vehicles You Need
Once you know where your weddings going to be, you can choose your vehicles for transportation. While you choose limousines, classic cars, exotic cars, a party bus, etc.?
However, this also calls for you to decide how many vehicles you need to rent. How many people need transportation? Is it just the wedding party or will some guests also require transportation?
3. Figure Out Your Budget
When planning your wedding transportation, you may be limited by your budget. How much can you afford to spend on transportation?
This may require some compromise in one area or another. For example, it may be more beneficial to have a lockdown on your transportation than to import a ton of tropical flowers for decor. Alternatively, it may be more cost-effective to enlist your friends or family member (not in the wedding party) to do some chauffering.
4. Book in Advance
We all know that wedding events can provide a perfect storm for disasters. There are a lot of moving pieces and you can hardly expect to get things accomplished last-minute.
We highly recommend booking your wedding transportation service, venues, entertainment, and catering long in advance. If something falls through or changes in your budget, this will also give you adequate time to make the necessary changes.
5. Hire Onsite Transportation Coordinators
Depending on the size of your wedding, wedding transportation alone can become complicated. For example, if you have more than a handful of vehicles transporting people to and from various locations, it’s easy to lose track of things.
However, hiring a wedding transportation service with onsite coordinators may be your saving grace. The coordinators will be apprised of everything that needs to happen, who needs to be where and at what time. This takes the responsibility off your shoulders so you can focus on the matter at hand – getting married!
