Congratulations! You're getting married! You're feeling great because you've got a great gal or guy, wonderful friends in your wedding party, and you've nailed down the site of the event. So what now? There is an additional factor that could make your special day even better - a wedding limousine. If you hadn't considered hiring a limo, you might think about the following:
No one in your party gets stuck driving on your special day.
Your chauffeur will pick up anyone you want included, and drop them off where you want. There won't be any eleventh hour changes of plans because someone can't get to the wedding venue on time.
No last second stresses about getting to the chapel on time.
Your options range from a standard Lincoln Town car to a stretch Hummer or even a luxury motor coach, depending on the theme of your ceremony, the number of people you need to transport, the amount of time you'll require your hire car, etc. Remember that should you have a very formal wedding and lots of ladies wearing big, elaborate gowns, you will need extra room in your ride. Some possible extras you might consider include a ride to the Airport Transportation for the bride and groom to get that honeymoon off to an elegant start, and Champagne or a full bar.
If you want to get the celebration started early and you have a big crowd, one fun way to go is a limo party bus. These traveling party buses can accommodate as many as 40 people, depending on their size and model, and can come equipped with wet bars, sound systems, flat screens, DVD/CD players, mirrored ceilings and luxury bathrooms! Some companies suggest you could even hold the ceremony or reception in their larger models.
Before the good times roll though, there are a few precautions you should take. Do your homework. The best resources are other couples who may have employed a Wedding Limos (they can talk about what went right and what didn't) and of course, online testimonials. Remember that the biggest or most well-known companies aren't necessarily the best. Listed below are some other things to consider:
Avoid working with companies that don't own their vehicles. They won't have complete control over their limousine scheduling, since the owning business can detour them to a different function or customer. Start your process at least three months out and don't stop there - call a week prior to your wedding to confirm all the details.
Work with companies that specialize in parties and weddings - as opposed to airport shuttle services. The last thing you need is for your luxury limo to be delayed for your big event caused by a delayed flight. Get whatever you agree to written into your contract. It's never a good idea to rely on verbal promises. Hiring a limousine or party bus lets you relax, and in the words of an old commercial, "leave the driving to us."
