When to Book Wedding Transportation?

In case you are tying the knot in April, May, or June do remember that high-class vehicles will be in high demand. So, be quick to reach out by calling 888.201.7183 and arranging everything with your appointed customer service wedding transportation organizer.
Who to Transport?
Aside from booking a wedding limo nearby or getting the nearest black car rental for you and your partner, you need to secure wedding transportation for the closest members of the family and VIPs.
Who usually constitutes immediate family? For most weddings, that means the wedding entourage, siblings, both sets of parents, siblings not in the wedding party, and grandparents. It is also not unusual to have wedding transportation organized for out-of-towners, close relatives or even all guests. But, where and how do you draw the line? The decision usually falls down to budget (check out ACL’s rates HERE) although that shouldn’t be the main concern. Here’s what to consider as well:
- – You’re not required to provide wedding limo transportation for the entire wedding party
- – Arrangements for your VIP gets should be a priority
- – A party bus can be a practical and fun option if you don’t want to worry about your guests enjoying themselves too much to drive back safely
How to Get There?
Besides your walk down the aisle, there are actually three routes to consider:
- – The ride to the ceremony
- – The trip between the ceremony and the reception (unless they are in the same place)
- – The getaway
When you figure out who needs to get transported where you can start planning the rental of your nearest wedding limo rental Chicago with American Coach Limo.
The Ride to the Ceremony
The custom is to have the bride and groom travel separately, whether alone or with their respective attendants. Still, there is also the option of renting a shuttle or wedding bus for the wedding party to ride in together.
In terms of space, the average stretch limos go from 6 to 8 people, most town cars hold 4 seats (driver included) such as the gorgeous Lincoln or the spectacular Chrysler 300C. However, a full-sized coach holds anywhere from 24 passengers and 32 seats to 44 passengers which is PERFECT for a large wedding party.
The Ride to the Reception
Traditionally, the bride and groom duck into a dream ride after the vows, and head to the reception in their own private car. But, what happens with the rest of your wedding party, those same people who hitched a ride with you earlier?
If your budget is not too tight, the best option would be to organize a lift for your parents and attendants to get to the reception using the same ride as before. If you’ve opted for the wedding shuttle, the whole group of selected members (relatives, friends, parents, etc.) can use this ride together. It’s comfy, convenient, classy – and very appropriate for a wedding ride to the reception.
When you’ve selected the vehicle and organized everything with your wedding limo company (which, of course, is American Coach Limo team) communicate the itinerary with everyone that’ll be taking the ride. Carpooling plans are essential for everything to go smoothly.
How Much It Costs to Rent a Wedding Limo Chicago?
Once you’re set on all types of rides you’d like to book, start inquiring about rates with American Coach Limo customer care representatives. They’ll inform you of vehicle availability, suggest the best option, organize your schedule as you request and prepare everything for the big day.
A SMART TIP: Most wedding limo rental companies are rigorous on their booking procedures.
Ask ACL to suggest the best and most cost-effective way for you to enjoy your nearest wedding limo service without suffering any loss of service quality. Is it better to have a car wait during the ceremony? Leave then come back? Will cars return later in the evening for a pickup or should they be there all the time for sudden guest ride requests? It can all be arranged very well as long as you communicate what you’d prefer.
What to Watch For:
Vague or verbal contracts are the biggest no-no of your wedding limo rental arrangement. Talk to your wedding limo provider to get all of the details in writing! These points should include:
- – Time, date, and locations of pickup and drop-off points
- – Exact hours each vehicle is hired for
- – Overtime fees and gratuities
- – Type and number of vehicles rented
- – Amenities supplied in each vehicle
- – Deposit amount
- – Total cost including gas and mileage
- – Cancellation and refund policies
Overcrowding can be a problem when you are renting a wedding limo. Consider all the nervous excitement, billowing skirts and all that! While it’s understandable that you want to save up and get as many people as you can in a single car, but maybe just this time around allow an extra person’s worth of breathing room.
