Coordinating your wedding day transportation is one of the most important things you need to take on during the wedding planning process. Here’s everything you need to know to get you, your bridal party and even your guests to and from your wedding ceremony and reception.
First things first, which means setting your budget. As with most of wedding planning everything starts with deciding on how much money you’re going to allocate to that need. How much money you have to spend on transportation will determine what kind of limo you hire, how long you have transportation for, how many limos you hire and even how many people you are able to transport. When deciding on your budget, don’t forget to factor in tipping your driver or drivers.
Determine Who is Paying for Transportation
For some couples the responsibility for paying for transportation many fall solely on them. However, for others, one or both sets of parents may be pitching in. Some families do this to allow for transportation for more family members and include even extended family, or out of town guests. If you have a lot of out of town guests, it may make sense for them to contact your limo company to hire car service for their own transportation needs.
What Type and Style of Limo You Prefer
This question can heavily impact what type of limousine you hire for your wedding day. If you’re a laid back couple and simply want to get from Point A to Point B hiring a town car like our Lincoln MKT Town Car will be perfect for you. Or if you want to have a fun party-like experience for your time on the road, a party bus will be ideal. For those who want a more traditional look the Rolls Royce Phantom Limo is an ideal choice.

Count How Many People Need a Ride
Another important factor to consider is how many people you need to transport. Taking a head count, will go a long way in helping your determine your vehicle needs. As a general rule of thumb here’s a breakdown of average capacities for most cars :
- Party Buses: 20-36 passengers
- Stretch limos: 8-12 passengers
- Town cars: 2-4 passengers
- Hummer stretch limo: 18-23 passengers
Determining How Long You Need a Limo
Some couples only need transportation from their home or hotel to their reception hall. While other couples need to be picked up from home, transported to the ceremony location, another location for photos and then to the reception hall. The number of stops you need to make may impact your decision, as will whether or not you want to pose next to the vehicle for your wedding photos.
