Of course, your transportation is essential – after all, you and your bride are the stars of the day – but it’s also important for your entourage, who are your supporting cast. After you’ve chosen what cool vehicle you’ll be riding in, it’s now time to consider how to transport your entourage to your reception. Here are some tips to help you with that.
Do a Headcount
List down the names of the wedding party so that you know exactly who needs to be serviced. Knowing how many and who will be needing rides will also help you determine which car model to rent – something that can accommodate the entire entourage comfortably and safely. If you have a large bridal party, consider getting two vehicles.
Choose One Car Rental Company
Hit two birds with one stone by arranging your entourage’s ride with the same service provider you used for your own transport. You can even save on cost by doing this. As you select your bridal car, look around for other vehicles that your entourage can take. Once you’ve made your choices, ask the car rental company for a package price for all vehicles.
Opt for One Big Car
Having just one car for the entire party is cost efficient. Choose an 8- or 16-seater limo, depending on how many people you have in your entourage and whether you’ll be giving a ride to other people, such as the flower girls and ring bearer. For simpler logistics, have everyone gather in one place where the limo would pick them up before going to the venue.
Check on the Chauffeur
Be sure that the company will provide you with a licensed chauffeur in a uniform appropriate to the formality of your wedding. It would be even better if you can meet the chauffeur to check on his personality and meet the person to whom you are entrusting the task of transporting some of the most important people in your wedding.
Clarify the Itinerary
Give your car rental company a detailed itinerary, which must include the schedule of events for the day, details of the passengers, and key locations, so that a consistent plan can be executed to smoothly transport your bridal party. Review your intended routes with the company as they may know of alternative paths that will help you avoid traffic or other causes of delay.
Appoint the Best Man to Supervise
On your wedding, you deserve to just enjoy the day with your partner. To do this, you need the assistance of your best man and appoint him to supervise the logistics of the wedding transportation. Have him coordinate with both the members of the entourage and the chauffeurs, and see to it that everyone is safely on board and at the appointed destinations on time.
With these simple tips, you can easily navigate your way through your wedding transportation needs. It shouldn’t require much of your time and effort with the help of a reputable car rental company who will prioritize your need and satisfaction. Keep in mind that your wedding entourage is important. For that, you want them to be safe and have convenient transportation throughout your wedding day.
