7 Tips for Booking Your Wedding Limousine

Oodles of details go into planning a wedding, and it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of the entire process. But some components often get looked over when planning a wedding and one of those is often the transportation. Although it may not seem like the most glamorous part of the celebration, it’s very important and can actually be one of the most exciting aspects of your wedding. If you rent a wedding limousine, that is. Renting a limo for the big day can help relieve any stress concerning the transportation of guests, the bridal party, and of course, ensuring you and your new spouse have plenty of time to relax in luxury.

Establish a Timeline

You don’t need to have your timeframe figured out down to the second for your wedding, but when you’re talking to the limo company, you want to have some sort of an idea in regards to start times, time blocks, and drop-off times. In addition to the numbers, inform the limo company of any details that’ll require transportation on the wedding day. For example, are you getting your hair and makeup done at a venue other than the ceremony? Do you want to have pictures done before you walk down the aisle, and do you have multiple photo locations you’d like to visit with your partner? Get an idea in your head of what will be needed from your limo rental.

Book Early

Wedding limos book up fast. The best thing you can do for yourself is to book the wedding limousine early on in the planning process, preferably at least six months before the wedding. Summer is a busy time for weddings, and many limo companies may book up a year in advance. If you’re planning a summer wedding or have set a date during prom season or around a major holiday, start the transportation planning right away. Before you book, you may wish to visit the limo company in person to ensure the vehicles are attractive and updated, and can offer the amount of room you need.

Have a Budget

There are many details that quickly add up when planning a wedding, from the flowers to the dress. And the transportation for the day needs to fit into your budget. When you speak with a wedding limo service, ask them how they charge their clients and if there are any special pricings for weddings. Most companies charge per hour plus the driver’s tip, so it will come in handy when you are looking at your already established timeline when booking the limo. You can determine right away if your budget matches up with the amount of time you need the limo for. Wedding limo companies want their clients to be happy and will often work with bride-to-be’s to come up with a package that fits your budget.

Know Who Will be in the Limo

Do you want the whole bridal party to ride with you and your partner to the ceremony? Or, do you want some time alone with your new spouse after you say I Do? Make sure you book a limo that is the appropriate size for the kind of experience you picture for your wedding day.

Get it in Writing

Once everything has been set and decided with the limo company, make sure all the details are very clear and the business provides you with a written agreement. This piece of paper is for both of your records and should include the type of service hired, the total price, any deposits required or put down, refund policies, all arrival and departure times and locations, the make and model of the limo rented, overtime fees, and any special requests. Being aware of every component will give you great peace of mind going into the big day.

It’s All in the Details

Just as beneficial as it is for you to get all the rental details in writing from the limo company, it is helpful for them to receive all of the logistics from you in advance. This includes exact addresses and alternate routes just in case there is any unexpected traffic or construction on the day of. Also, provide the limo company with the numbers of your maid/matron of honor, bridesmaids and possibly your mother so that if any snags or questions arise, they don’t bother you on the big day. You’ve got enough to worry about!

Consider Any Additional Transportation

When you’re booking your wedding limo, it’s also a good time to think about any other type of transportation you’ll need. Will out-of-town guests need to be picked up at the airport? Will anyone need to be dropped off at their hotel after the reception? You can hire a limo to take care of your family members and guests, and ensure no one has to worry about arriving on time to the festivities, or making it back to their accommodate safely. When you book more than one vehicle for your wedding, you will often receive a discount price for the bundle booking, so you can save money and bring peace of mind to everyone.

Take a moment and imagine how you’ll feel when you step into a luxurious limousine with your new spouse on your wedding day. It will be the perfect chance to relax in marital bliss with your partner, take a breather before the party begins, feel incredibly special and regal, and celebrate by popping some champagne! Cheers to that!
