Factors to Consider When Choosing Wedding Transportation

Every girl dreams about the Cinderella story of getting swept away by carriage to live happily ever after with her prince charming. Although this can still be true, the magic provided by the limo service on your wedding day can be crushed if brides and grooms do not know what to look for or be careful about. Make sure you are cautious when renting from companies who offer the “lowest” prices hourly. You may be sacrificing some of the magic on your day for a mere $35 total savings on your rental.  

Low Cost Price Risks include:
~ Your limo may or may not show up.
Result: Your parents drive you instead!
~ Your limo is late.
Result: You are late for your big day!
~ A 1989 rusting limo arrives when you were expecting a new, more luxurious model.
Result: Embarrassment among family and friends.

The cons could be endless.  Find out exactly what limo you are paying for, what type of insurance coverage is offered, and if it’s really worth saving a few bucks rather than keeping the magic of your day alive!

Finally, make sure that you book your transportation 6 to 9 months out. This is especially true during the spring and summer months when you are competing with proms, graduations and other weddings and parties! Even booking one year out, if possible, is best so that you are sure to secure the exact vehicle to suit your needs. Each bridal party is unique. While some may require a standard or more traditional limousine, others may want the more luxurious SUV or stretch HUMMER.

The right limousine company will find out what your requirements are and fit you with a vehicle that meets all of your needs and budget guidelines for your day.
