    I don’t see anything wrong with doing that, why the heck not! Although tbh if it was me and I could afford a nice car, I would have a nice car

    Probably not. Sometimes you get a nice cab, but other times it smells like cigarettes or weird take out food or the driver just won’t stop talking about all manner of whatever crazy stuff is on his mind. Fine for everyday, maybe not so much for after a special day.

    We are getting a black car. Not a limo, not a cab, but a prearranged town car. 

    $80 to the hotel which is 30 min away.

    We probably will get a black towncar – so a little nicer than a regular taxi, but we don’t need a full limo for just two of us.

    Thats exactly what we did!…we didn’t hire a limo for any part of the day, especially since everything was at one place,  But we did get some friends to drive us earlier in the day in their nice vehicles, so after everything, we got a cab to our hotel.  I wasn’t going to ask anyone to be DD for us.  It really wasn’t so bad, and really did save a lot of money. whcih we have used for other things that were more important to us

    Sure! It can be fun. We went to a wedding in NYC where they hailed a cab when leaving the ceremony and used it while they photographed around the city. They hailed another one after the reception. It was great and they took some gorgeous pictures! The image of a bride in full white gown hailing a cab is something I won’t ever forget.

    For non-NYC, I still think it’s a smart economic and safety decision. I mean, by the end of the reception the guests don’t care what you’re getting into and you likely won’t want to drive after a long, long day that might involve some drinking. Best of luck!

    The hotel was only a 5 min cab ride away.

    Nope, I would not do that. Cabs are dirty and I would no want to get in one with my white wedding gown on! Plus, it is a special occassion so why not splurge and get a town car?

    I think it depends on location. We are staying in a bridal suite that night, and part of the deal is that the hotel will pick us up.

    we took a cab home but we also stayed the night at the hotel where our reception was. it was in san francisco and we lived in the city at the time. we didn’t have a car so we really didn’t have a choice but to take a cab.

    Yep, we are. Why would I pay for a limo to sit and wait during the reception? This was a non-issue for us, especially because there is a taxi stand in front of our reception and we may want to go to the after party.

    EDIT: FI actually wanted us to take metro. I vetoed for the sole reason that changing lines on the weekend can take forever.
