The last thing you’d want on your wedding is for the transportation system to not be effective, for the event to not go as scheduled and for the guests to arrive late, feeling grumpy, nervous and all worn out. Your wedding transportation should be effective for your wedding to go as planned and for there to be a fresh start for your big day.
Here are the wedding transportation mistakes to avoid, for your day to go great from the start to the end.
Failing to hire a car company might lead to regret. Be it a local or destination wedding, transporting oneself to and from the wedding ceremony and reception is risky and time consuming.
Hiring a car company will make your wedding transportation easy and without stress.
- Not Catering For Your Guests
Your guest list might be a large one but you should plan on satisfying the transportation of some guests, mostly the out-of-towners.
Not catering for them means leaving them to find their way through the unfamiliar city and fend for themselves. It shows that you do not appreciate the effort they have made to spend time and cost, travelling from far away, just to grace your wedding and share your special day with you.
Care for your out-of-town guests and ensure that their safety and convenience is guaranteed by planning a way that would make them get to the venue on time and return to their hotel after the whole event.
- Not Considering The Wedding Gifts
Remember that the wedding gifts have to be packed after the whole event. You should therefore plan for a spare car for your gifts.
Choose someone to pack the wedding gifts and leftovers after your wedding event.
- Letting a Friend Drive Your Wedding Car
Your friend shouldn’t drive for you. It’s ideal to hire a professional wedding transportation service that will offer you variety of styles.
It reduces stress as you won’t need to arrange for a different ride. A professional wedding car company will take to your wedding venue on time and without stress.
- Forgetting The Photographer
Do not leave out the photographer as you’ll want lovely pictures of both of you on your way to your wedding, sharing your first intimate moment as a partner.
- Considering Only The Wedding Day
Transportation service is also needed for the pre-wedding events such as the rehearsal dinner, the bachelor and bachelorette party, the engagement party as well as the honeymoon departure.
Since your guests may have lots to drink at the party, its ideal to hire a shuttle bus for your guests and a car for you.
After your wedding, you should hire an appropriate car to take to you to the airport as adorable newlyweds and upon your arrival, a car should be waiting for you, to take you home.
