Wedding bells are ringing, suits and gowns are ready, and love is in the air as the day is here. But what about transportation to the venue? That shouldn’t be an aspect left for the last moment since the ride on your wedding day defines the charisma of it all. Hiring a limousine for your wedding is hands down, the best option to infuse luxury into your special day. If you are planning to hire a limo, make sure to do it at least 3 to 4 months prior to the wedding. Contact the service providers and check with them the availability of a limo on the date. With the limousine at your service at the right time, you are bound to have an unforgettable day of amazing memories. However, when you decide to hire a limo, you should bear a few tips in mind to elude the chances of it turning out into a debacle.
1. Creating a Timeline For the Wedding Day
Your transportation plan has to include the duration for which you require the limo, and this timeline should contain the estimate of the time you are likely to spend in each location. Add every stop to the plan; be it the studio that clicks your bridal party portraits or the salon for makeup. Take the factors of distance into consideration, which should include the time required to travel to the venue from your hotel/house and the distance between the locations of the wedding and reception. It is best to book your limo 4 to 6 months before the wedding so that you don’t have to deal with the last-minute stress. Also, if your wedding is during the holidays or prom season, make sure to book your ride in advance.
2. Set Your Budget
A minimum rental period of 3-4 hours is to be expected when you hire a limo, and they will charge you by the hour. The bride and groom will be transported to the ceremony in separate cars when you rent 3-hour transportation. Once the reception is over, the couple gets transported together in a car. You also have to pay for the limo to standby. Pay the driver an amount after the waiting time and ride back home. Feel free to ask about discounts.
3. Research, Check Reviews and Get Referrals
Check online reviews about the limousine service you are about to hire for your wedding. Keep searching for the past experiences of users and make your decision wisely. Go ahead and ask your family or friends for referrals. You also have to check if the service has insurance and license. Also, go through the company’s safety record to make sure that you are signing up for a secure wedding day. Make a list of relevant questions to ask the limousine service, which must include factors such as the age of the vehicle, offers and package deals, extra amenities and food services, cancellation policy, and the availability of gratuity in the rental price.
