When it comes to wedding day transportation, planning ahead matters. The last thing you want to deal with on your big day is transportation surprises or a stranded wedding party. Our chauffeurs are happy to provide you with safe and luxurious transportation services during your event, but we need your help to ensure that all goes smoothly. Here are five transportation tips to keep in mind for your wedding.
To make sure you get the vehicle you want, contact us early to make your reservation. We recommend booking at least six months in advance. This is of even greater import if you’re planning a wedding for April, May or June. Our limo service Nashville comes into extremely high demand at this time of year due to local proms and graduations. Booking early ensures that the limousine you want is available.
Book in Person
Whenever and wherever you book transportation services, it is prudent to make your reservation in person. We invite you to do the same when making a reservation with us. A personal visit allows you to examine the limo both inside and out to make sure it fits your needs and wants. This ensures that you’re not disappointed by a car that fails to meet your expectations on your wedding day. Look at the vehicle and know what you’re getting before you book it.
Leave Wiggle Room
Our car service Nashville offers several types of vehicles. We are happy to tell you how many people each one will hold. For bridal parties, however, we recommend erring on the side of caution. If, for example, your wedding party of 18 people will be traveling together, don’t assume a vehicle designed for exactly 18 people will be large enough. Wedding apparel is often a bit more delicate and billowy than your everyday wear, and you won’t want to look crushed and wrinkled when arriving at your reception.
Remember Your Guests
If you have a lot of out-of-town guests traveling for your wedding, providing transportation for them is a courteous thing to do. Although you need not provide a limousine to transport them, you should consider hiring a chauffeured car for them. Give your guests a ride from the hotel to the wedding venue, from the wedding to the reception and then back again to the hotel. They will appreciate not having to navigate a foreign city, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing intoxicated guests aren’t driving themselves.
Understand Your Contract
We do our best to offer straightforward pricing and contracts that are easy to understand. Ask us, however, if you have any questions about our pricing or services. A 15 to 20 percent tip is common and may or may not be included in your contract. You also need to understand whether or not you are paying for wait times and how much. Make sure your contract matches the number of hours of service you think you’ll need, as well. We want to be on the same page as you, so please read and understand your contract before signing it. Knowing what to expect will avoid confusion on your big day.
Following these tips ensures that your wedding day transportation will go off without a hitch. While we can’t ease your worries about the caterer or the florist, we can make sure you need not worry about getting to the church on time.
