Getting Married? Our Top Tips For Arranging Wedding Transport
There’s nothing worse than being late, especially to your own wedding. Being on time not only looks good, but makes you feel more relaxed and organised for the big day ahead. Getting the transportation right is key to a happy and calm wedding, which is why it’s important to pick the very best which suits you and your partner.
Research early and book in advance
Conduct your research early by searching online, asking questions via the phone/email and meeting a rental company in person. Meeting your driver face-to-face before the wedding not only breaks the ice, but gives you a sense of familiarity with them. Be sure to book at least 6 months in advance to secure a spot. Transportation like vintage cars and carriages are in shorter supply than the average limo, so ensure to book it as soon as possible.
Plan for any delays to your destination
We know that not everything runs smoothly, it’s just life, but being prepared for the unexpected makes things run a lot easier. Pack in some extra time (about 30 minutes) to each trip, to and from the wedding, in case of any delays such as, traffic and roadworks. Also, research any events which are happening around your wedding venue on the actual day. By doing this, you can at least tell the driver and make a detour past any interruptions. If you want to take it a step further, you could make a ‘test run’ and ask for the rental company to drive you on the route to the wedding venue at the same day and time of the big day. This way you can be sure to be on time and prepared for any delays.
Add some special touches
If you want to add decorations to your transportation such as, flowers, signs and streamers, it would be wise to ask the car rental company whether this is permitted. Most companies won’t make a fuss, but some vintage themed ones won’t allow this. Another way to add your personal touch is music. Create your own playlist; rock, pop, country or classical, whatever your taste! Listening to your favourite tunes will relax and release those feel-good hormones. Make sure to get all these little details sorted out before the big day comes.
Arrive to your wedding in style
Depending on your taste, there are a bunch of different transportation vehicles which take you to your venue with class and finesse. Whether you get there by road, water or from the sky, make your wedding a unique one. If you’re the traditional type, a sleek limousine might be all you need, but if you want to experiment and go outside the box, there’s a vast amount of other transportation to decide on. From a shuttle-bus to a horse-drawn carriage, Rolls-Royce to a speedboat, the choice is yours.
There you have it, you’re one step closer to finishing your wedding plans and being ready for the special day ahead. As long as you’re prepared, you can sit back, relax and let your magical day unwind.
