I seem to remember being a limo years ago and being totally squished in there. I am wondering if renting a 8 person limo for our 8 person wedding party is smart move. Should i try to get a bigger limo so we aren’t smushed like sardines?
My dress isn’t that poofy or overly big but 2 of our groomsmen are over 6 ft tall.
Does anyone have an experience from their weddings where they found the advertised amount of ppl wasn’t realistic?

We are renting a 10 person SUV limo for our 8 person bridal party. We did get to sit inside of it and check space. The men in our bridal party (minus my FI lol) are all bigger guys. Honestly, we will probably just fit. If we had anymore people we would probably go bigger. The 10 person limos can technically fit 10 people but you end up pretty crammed in without room to move at all.

I’ve never ridden in a limo for a wedding but I have for prom and other events and they never seem to fit the amount of people they are supposed to. If I were you, I would up the size by atleast 2 people to be safe. The last thing you’ll want is to be stuffed in there so you’re uncomfortable.

I wouldnt get the 8 person limo for 8 person wedding party.
We had b attendants and then us (bride and groom) making it 10 so we got the SUV which is for 12. Our photographers ended up climbing in with us and taking pics etc so it was nice to have the extra room 🙂
If you are in Vancouver I can forward you the info for my limo service that we used. We got a SUV, with pop, water and decorations for 400.00 for 4 hours.

i’ve been stuffed like a sardine into limos several times before – i’d say go one size up! at the last wedding i was in, we ended up with people sitting on the floor. not fun.

@ Baielyh – i just read your post now and I already booked with another company. I called and checked and apparently they can fit 10 (squished) in the limo, but they advertise it as 8 person limo so everyone has room, so hopefully that will be good.
Sounds like you got a great deal though! Mine is comparable, but a smaller limo.

Ooh! I posted something exactly like this a while back. Here’s my thread so you can see the advice I got:
I ended up upgrading our limo to be a 16-person capacity for 14 people just to be safe. I figured if we were going to spend the money on a limo, I didn’t want to be miserable.
