A wedding party in Glendale, Arizona, getting ready to get on their wedding transportation party bus.

Need to plan your wedding transportation? Here are our key tips to help make this process a little less stressful!

Create a Wedding Day Timeline

You’ll likely need to do this anyway with your photographer or coordinator so your wedding day runs smoothly, but having one on hand for you is also helpful when it comes to wedding transportation.

For your timeline, make sure you add in estimates on where, when, and how long you’ll be in each location. Do you need transportation to a salon for hair and makeup? Where are you and the wedding party taking photos? How long will the ceremony be, and if the reception is in a different location, when will you need your transportation? These things will factor into how long you need to book your mode of transportation for, as well as keep you on schedule the day of.

Make a List of Who You’re Transporting

Before booking anything, it’s essential to also take a head count and ensure there’s enough space in your ride (no matter what it is!). It’s not necessary to take charge of transportation for all wedding attendees, but there are some people you will want to make sure to arrive on time without a hitch.

Some essential people to include:

  • You and your soon-to-be spouse (it can happen – don’t forget yourselves in the headcount!)
  • The wedding party
  • Both sets of parents
  • Siblings not in the wedding party
  • Grandparents

Of course, this can all be amended based on what you prefer. If you want to ride with your wedding party and family, that’s great. If you only want to ride with your wedding party and a few close friends – do what makes you happy. It’s your day, after all! No matter who you decide to take with you, know it’s better to leave room for extra space. Just don’t try and go over a vehicle’s capacity.

Mind the Details

The budget is important, but don’t let it be the only thing on your mind when researching options for wedding transportation.

Weddings are beautiful because of their attention to detail. Go into research with that same thought in mind. For any potential options, get a list of amenities, check licenses and insurance, ask about backup vehicles in the event of an accident or emergency, ask about gratuity, figure out your driver’s attire, etc. In short: make sure you have your bases covered so you’re not stressing about details on your special day.

Book Early

Another crucial thing to keep in mind: don’t wait until the very last minute to get your wedding transportation figured out. Booking ahead is especially essential if you’re planning on exchanging vows during peak wedding season, which tends to be from April to June. You don’t want to be stuck with your last choice because you didn’t book your first choice when you had the chance.

Think Outside Limo Services

Do you have a bigger wedding party, or do you want to include some other friendly faces when transporting? You’ll likely need to think bigger than a stretch limo. This is the perfect opportunity to step away from tradition and make an impression!

While a fleet of golf carts, horse carriages, and vintage cars are fun, it may mean you’re splitting up people into different vehicles. If you want something where everyone can party together, consider renting a party bus. They come in a range of sizes to suit any group size, you can hook up a playlist to keep the vibes high, and they are sure to make your day even more memorable!

Ensure Everyone is on Schedule

Day of the event, you want to make sure everyone is on schedule so you can all get transported at the same time. You don’t want to be stressing about keeping everyone on time on your wedding day, so a few days before, make sure everyone knows the schedule. Text the group important times they need to know, like when they need to be done getting ready, when they need to be in the vehicle, etc. It also helps to have a few wedding party members be the “designated wranglers,” so they can field timing questions and help make sure everyone is where they need to be. That way, you and your significant other can relax and not be bombarded with questions and timing stress on your big day!
