How to Hire a Limo for Your Wedding

The food, the ceremony, the flowers, the guest list, and, of course, the dress — a beautifully planned wedding requires military precision, astonishing attention to detail and a vision of elegance that’s yours and yours alone.

In all the excitement, don’t forget about transportation from your home to the ceremony, and from the ceremony to the reception (plus the ride from the reception to the honeymoon suite!). Hiring one or more chauffeured vehicles for your big day assures you, your family members and your friends will arrive promptly and in style.

Thinking Critically

Chances are, you already know how many people are in your wedding party. Whether your accompanying cast is large or small, carefully count the number of people who will need a lift. In addition to bridesmaids and groomsmen, remember your parents, grandparents and other VIPs.

Although some limousines accommodate up to 14 people and more, consider whether or not you’ll want everyone in the same vehicle. You may prefer one for the bridal party and another for the parents and grandparents. Many newly married couples prefer taking their own car from the ceremony to the reception. Know your numbers and your logistics, and you’re better able to make the best decision.

Read the Reviews

Even the most relaxed couples want everything to go just right on the big day. The last thing you need is to find out too late that your limo company is regularly late, operates filthy and poorly maintained cars or employs rude or inexperienced drivers. Spend some time researching testimonials and reviews before you leave a deposit with any limousine company. They’re not all alike.

See the Fleet

Not sure what kind of cars you need or want? Once you’ve settled on a limo company, take the time to see the fleet in person. You might decide that the stretch limo stocked with a few bottles of Champagne is the perfect way to go, or maybe you prefer the spaciousness of a luxurious SUV. Will parking be a problem? An elegant sedan might do the trick. See the fleet in advance and make your choices based on what you like and what’s available.

Reserve Ahead

Reserving your transportation ahead of time is critical, especially if you plan on getting married during busy times of the year, such as the month of June. You’ll want to call a minimum of three months ahead of time, especially if you plan to hire multiple vehicles. Call earlier if you want specific vehicles in the fleet, and save your confirmation information for your records.
