Arranging transportation on your wedding day is important to secure, after you secure your major three vendors which is the florist, DJ entertainment, and the Photography/videography. Whether you hire transportation for the photo opportunities with the vehicle, for out-of-towners, or for a ride from your ceremony venue to your reception venue, securing the details and hiring a company is very important to get done 3-6 months before your wedding date. This helps ensure that you will get the transportation vehicle you desire and will relieve you of portraying all of the wedding details/timeline at a later point of the wedding process.
An antique car like a vintage Rolls-Royce is a glam way to get yourselves to Jericho Terrace from your Church ceremony spot. You’d be not only riding in style, but also, it’ll create the perfect backdrop for classic black-and-white photo ops. Some hot models to consider renting: the Chrysler 300, Rolls-Royce Phantom, Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud, or Bentley S2. Or consider retro wheels with a little more character: Imagine the photos of you two riding off in a vintage candy-colored Volkswagen van.
A classic option, the stretch limo combines formality and function with a sleek design and enough room for your wedding party and parents to feel like VIPs too. (Most stretch limos hold 8 to 10 passengers.) Or hop in a town car, which seats up to 4.
Party Buses / Shuttles
Hire a charter bus or shuttle, which usually holds up to 40-60 passengers, to provide round-trip rides for your whole crew. If you would like the party to continue from one location to the next, rent this vehicle so you have your bridal party and all close members engaging with you from each pick up destination. If you’re planning on popping a few corks, check that the rental company is licensed with the local county.
Uber / Lyft
A new trend with transporting wedding party, guests, and even the honored couple, is through an Uber or Lyft service. This method allows you to track how far the vehicle is from you, allows you to call it when you feel the moment is right, and is more cost effective than renting a limo for the day.
