In planning for your wedding day, you will encounter a plethora of wedding details you need to plan and settle before your big day. Some of the essential things you need to put extra attention to in wedding planning are wedding dress, budget, caterer, reception and transportation.
Yes, transportation is one of the essential things you need to plan out for your wedding day. But often times wedding transportation are taken for granted until the last minute which can cause hassles and unnecessary stress. Most of the time, the couple is left bewildered on how to start planning for a wedding transportation.
Here are some of the tips you can try to successfully book a wedding transportation.
Know Your Budget
We can’t deny the fact that when you are planning a wedding overall, BUDGET IS CRUCIAL. So before booking for your wedding transportation, you need to come up with a feasible budget plan. There are multiple things you need to consider in creating your “wedding transportation budget”. How long you are going to use the service is one of the essential elements you need to consider in planning for your transportation. You may also want to check out the fleet available under your budget, if they can accommodate the number of passengers you are planning to transport during your wedding day.
Book A Car Early
One of the basics in planning for wedding car service is to book early. Remember, you are not the only couple who will have the wedding on that very same day in the same city. So, it is better to book a transportation service in as early as 6-8 months before your wedding day. Plus, when you book early for a car service in your wedding, you can have a lot of options to choose from. The common problem in last-minute booking is that they end up without a choice other than what is left available and for sure you don’t want to be in that situation.
Prepare The Other Details
Once you have already chosen the type of wedding car service you are going to get, make sure you have informed the transportation company about the other details in your wedding to make sure that no miscommunication and delays will happen in your wedding day. Inform the company about other details in your wedding including the time, direction, alternate routes and contact numbers whenever they need to contact you.
Think Outside The Box
Be creative. Just because you already have hired a car service for your wedding doesn’t mean that your work ends there. For sure, during your travel you want your ride to be as fun as possible. You can ask the car rental company if they have a complementary service included in the package you choose. If they don’t have, you can ask them if they can include some, like champagne or music.
Allot A “Wait Time”
Delays could really be stressful. Not only to you but also to your guests, so it is important that your transportation service should arrive at least 2 hours before the wedding ceremony starts. During your wedding day, it is not impossible that there would be some cause of delays like traffic jam and driver getting lost along the way. To avoid this kind of hassle, set the time to start the car service hours before the ceremony pickup.
Your choice of wedding transportation can either give your wedding style or can mess up with the whole wedding celebration. Wedding transportation plays a crucial role in making you wedding memorable. So if you want your wedding day to be memorable, stylish and perfect, don’t forget to plan your wedding transportation ahead.
