So I was pricing some HUGE limos and party buses and they are all out of the budget. I even priced 2 smalled limos and those we still out of the budget (they would run about the cost of a stretch Hummer of party bus).
My biggest worry is that someone will be late to where-ever it is we need to be because they had to rely on there own transportation. Also, we have lots of out-of-towners in our wedding party.
Any suggestions on an altervative to limo/s or does anyone have a great idea that will work for me?
Thanks SO much for the help, I really appreciate it! 🙂

A fancy car for the couple and normal cars for the WP?

Well, what we’re doing is sharing a limo amongst everyone.. ie. drop off men, drop off women, then pick people up in shifts.. it saves a lot of money!

@mandy83ala:Hmmm, not sure. Any family/friends with interesting transportation that you could use that day?
We’re using two family firend’s RVs. One for the Groom and the boys and one for the Bride and the gals :o) They are SUPER nice and free!

Do you have any trolley companies? An average trolley can fit about 30-35 (we had 22 people in ours, plus bags, coats, water, snacks, etc with PLENTY of room!). It ended up being cheaper for a trolley than a limo as well. Another alternative would be a party bus.

Check out charter buses and trolleys.

I checked out trolleys and busses. They are the same as the large limos in Chicago. I just don’t want the entire Wedding Party driving their cars. It just doesn’t make sense to me. I just can’t think of an idea.

I hate to say it, but if a party bus isn’t feasible, I’m not sure you could rent anything (or a number of things) that would be affordable and could accommodate all. I’d look into whether anyone can borrow. And, not to mention, not ALL of the Wedding Party would have to drive their own cars as you can fit 4-5 people per car. Good luck! 🙂

I found a really nice shuttle bus that will accommodate us on our wedding. It just doesn’t seem reasonable to pay 1200 for a limo. Just a huge waste of money. We found a great price and are VERY happy! Thanks for the suggestions!

@mandy83ala: which company did you use if I may ask?
