Tips on Finding Transportation
You’ve sealed your vows with a kiss and now it’s time to celebrate with your guests. Riding in style to your reception is a must. There are many transportation options to fit your vision such as chauffeured limousines, trolleys, classic cars, muscle cars, or even horse-drawn carriage services. How do you pick which is best for your day?
If you’re considering a valet service, know that most will require a minimum car amount. Be sure to check into this before you book, since you don’t want to be left with a tab. Most services will have one valet for every 20-25 cars. This can be arranged by your venue or an outside valet service company. You may also want to consider a coat check service for your guests contingent on weather.
– GOOD TO KNOW –
Your transportation should be responsible for roughly 3% of the budget. This means these fees typically range $400-$2,000.
Tips for selecting your transportation:
Think about the style of the exit you want to have. Is it a more formal affair? Then a limousine filled with your entire bridal party is the way to go.
How many people do you need to transport? When your wedding party is very large, you may need more than one limousine. You might also consider a luxury bus.
Transportation companies will need you to book their services for at least two hours. So put this time to good use. This is a great opportunity to go take some fun pictures with your wedding party off-site.
Some couples choose to arrange transportation for all guests throughout the day. If you are having a lot of out-of-town guests that aren’t familiar with the area, this is a service to consider. Sometimes these shuttles can be organized through the hotel where you have a large room block. Otherwise this is something your planner can help with.
– TIPPING GUIDE –
This may be done when they have completed their services, if not already included in the charges. You can also give these tips to your wedding planner to disperse.
Driver: 15-20% of the total bill
Valet attendants: $1-1.50 per car
