5 Wedding Limo Service Tips You Should Never Overlook

Did you know that we’re currently right in the middle of peak wedding season? June, August, September, and October are the most popular months for couples to get married—and as a result, we at Modern Limousine have been chauffeuring plenty of weddings these last few months. Because we’ve been driving so many brides, grooms, and wedding parties lately, we thought it would be a good time to post a few helpful tips on how to handle your wedding limo service transportation. We hope that these pointers will help make your wedding day even smoother!

Allow A Time Cushion, And Be Aware

When it comes to your wedding day, there’s never too much over-preparation—especially when it comes to wedding limo service transportation! Be smart and factor in a 30-minute “traffic cushion” when planning your routes. Even if you don’t need the cushion, you can take that extra time to relax and breathe for a moment. Also remember to be mindful of any local events that may be going on during your wedding day. A parade, festival, march, or concert that you weren’t aware of can really add time to you and your wedding guests’ travel time.

Make Sure You Know Where You’re Headed

It’s a good idea to know your routes from the wedding venue to the photoshoot area to the reception venue beforehand. Yes, drivers always have GPS systems nowadays, but it’s still smart to know where you’re going. This is helpful and can save you lots of time and frustration in the event of a GPS not working. You cannot always depend on technology, and the last thing you want is to get lost on your wedding day. A foolproof plan is to provide your car service with all the addresses for the wedding day, as well as a schedule. This will allow the driver to prepare and plan.

Consider Your Photographers

Your wedding photographer and videographer will most likely have their own cars to get themselves around, but consider if you would like photos and video footage of the trips. Many couples enjoy having sweet, post-ceremony photos of the two of them riding in their limo or car. Or, if the whole wedding party is on board, these photos are fun as well. Some couples prefer to be alone and have a moment to themselves in their limo. Whatever your preference, this is a decision that needs to be made well in advance so that everyone is on the same page: bride, groom, photographer, videographer, wedding party, etc.

Is Your Wedding Party Riding Too?

Another thing you don’t want on your wedding day is your wedding party being confused about how they’ll be getting to the different venues. Figure out before you reserve your wedding limo or car if your bridesmaids and groomsmen will have a way to get around—especially if they will be drinking during the day. Whether your wedding party finds their own way around, rides in the limousine with you, or whether you book them a sprinter van, they will need to be informed beforehand of all their transport details.

Ask About Refreshments And Music

Hey, you’ll already be in a luxury vehicle on your wedding day—why not go all out with champagne, snacks, and your favorite music? If you think you’ll want anything like this during your wedding limo service transportation, be sure to ask the limo company you book. Special requests can be handled—even down to the type of champagne you’d prefer! However, don’t expect this automatically. Many couples and wedding parties get inside their limo expecting for it to be fully stocked with drinks and food, however, this is a service that must be requested when booking the car.

Reserve In Advance

A mistake that many couples make is not reserving a limo or car in advance. Because of this, they often have to scramble to find something, and may end up overpaying—or not getting a car at all. Depending on when your wedding date is, it may be simply impossible to get a vehicle (for example, if it’s around prom time). It’s smart to book the limo or car you want for your wedding day at least six months before your big day.
