7 Frequently Asked Questions About Wedding Transportation

Transportation for you, your bridal party and your guests is one of the most important things you have to arrange in the months leading up to your wedding.

It’s important to get this right, so that everyonegets to where they should be, and more importantly be there on time. Which means it needs careful planning.

So to help, I’ve put together this list of 7 of the most frequently asked questions about wedding day transport:

1. How Many Cars Do I Need?

Well, you need to sit down and work out how many people you need to transport. And it’s important that all your guests can get from the ceremony to the reception venue.

But of course, as with a lot of things, the number of cars you rent will really depend on how much of your budget you have allocated for transport.

2. How Should I Arrive At The Church?

Every bride wants to arrive at the church in style. After all, it’s you they will all be waiting to see, and there will be a lot of cameras clicking as you get out of the car. This means that your wedding car is going to be seen in a lot of your wedding photographs.

So opt for something really special – perhaps a limo with all the trimmings, and a chauffeur, for you and your Dad?

3. The Bridal Party

Your bridesmaids and your Mother also need to arrive in style, so this calls for a second limo. Remember, they will arrive at the church before you, so their arrival in a chauffeur driven limo will set the tone and the style of your wedding.

4. How Do Guests Get To The Reception Venue?

One of the best ways to get a large number of people to your reception is to hire a party bus. This way no one is left without transportation, no one gets lost, there are no parking problems, and everyone has fun as they make their way to the reception venue.

5. How Do My Husband and I Get To Reception?

You and your brand new husband travel to the reception in the bridal car that brought you to the church. It’s your first journey together as man and wife, and it’s a great chance for you both to grab a little time together on your own and draw breathe before you get ready to greet your guests.

6. Can I Ask That My Driver Wears A Uniform?

Yes. But I think it would be safe to assume that a wedding limousine from a rental company will be driven by a uniformed chauffeur, complete with cap. But it never hurts to check these things, so you could very discreetly ask before you make your booking.

7. How Much Should I Spend On Wedding Transportation?

This is a tricky one! I suppose it depends on how formal your wedding is and how many guests are invited. But most people say they plan to spend around 2% of their wedding budget on transport.
