Hiring A Limousine Service To Make Your Wedding Day Even More Unforgettable

For a bride and groom, your wedding is one of the most important days in your lives. You can make the day even more memorable by renting a classic or vintage limousine to go with your wedding theme. With the right planning, you can travel to the wedding ceremony and then later to the reception in elegance and style.

Following certain tips can help you organize your limousine service for the event so that it's ready to go without a hitch.

  1. Avoid procrastinating when it comes to planning transportation for your big day.

    With so many details to plan, transportation often gets kicked to the bottom of the to-do list, but it's a good idea to book the limousine service well in advance of your wedding date. Get confirmation in writing and confirm the booking again a few weeks before your wedding.

  2. Inquire about special wedding discounts. Some limousine companies offer discounts if your plan your wedding for a Sunday or month during the winter; however, the offers exclude holidays.

  3. Choose a size limousine that's within your nuptial day budget. But also consider how many people you want to seat in the limo, as well as the type of attire they will be wearing. For example, you will need more room to accommodate a puffy bridal gown.

    If you can afford a larger vehicle, rent a limo with a seating capacity higher than the number in your party. That way, there will be enough room for everyone to be seated comfortably.

  4. Select from different types of limousines. You can even pass on the traditional white or black limousine and choose a color limo that matches your personal style or wedding color theme for invitations, gowns, flowers, table settings, and reception decorations. Ask to see a photo of the actual vehicle you will be renting.

  5. Add on additional time when estimating the number of hours you will need the limousine service. Limousine services generally charge by the hour; therefore, you can avoid paying overtime charges by carefully planning in advance and being prepared if your wedding ceremony goes into overtime.

  6. Find out exactly what products and services are included in the cost. Rather than charging an hourly rate, some limousine services offer flat rates or packages, but be sure to ask about fees, such as fuel surcharges, that aren't included in the base price.

    Although you usually get a price break by purchasing a package deal, you also need to tip the driver if the service hasn't already included the tip in the cost. As a general rule, the tip for a limousine driver is 18 to 20 percent of the base rate you pay for the limousine rental.

  7. Find out if the limousine service chauffeur is familiar with the routes you will be traveling to the church, reception hall, and hotel or airport. Knowledge beforehand of congested traffic areas and road construction can save time and frustration on this all-important day.

  8. Ask to see the limousine service's business licensing and proof of insurance.
