We’re skipping the limos too. It’s just not us. But then again I think we’re a different breed altogether, we’re using our 1974 Winnebago to get around for the most part, LOL!

I think limos are fun.  We are getting a mustang convertible, because that is just our style.

I dont think they are Tacky but we wont be having one. I figured we could use our own vehicle. My BFF got married and they had a rolls royce transport them now that is a cool CAR! it was very nice and elegant. a lot of money but they have great pictures with it.

We didn’t have a limo.  I couldn’t justify the cost, especially since everything was within a couple miles.  We did however rent a party van for the weekend to use to pick up everyone from the airport and then on the wedding day got decorated and took the wedding party back and forth.   It was funl

I don’t think that they’re tacky, but I also don’t think that they’re necessary. Not for us, at least. I’m not sure how we’re getting to our venue, but we’ll probably just take a cab.

Limos remind me of prom.

If we had gone with a venue situation where we would have different venues for the ceremony and reception, I can’t say I would have ruled out renting a limo just because it can fit so many people, but as a rule I don’t really like them, and glad we don’t have to rent one.

We have the same problem with having to transport a lot of people. I racked my brains for weeks trying to think of something really cool, but never figured it out. The suggestions we got were SUV limo, Party Bus, or Trolley. I am totally against a party bus too. The last trolley I was on very uncomfortable and smelled like beer before anybody got on it, so I wasn’t too excited about that. We’re having an SUV limo, but we rented it from a company that mainly does corporate rentals, so it doesn’t have any neon lights or speakers in the windows.

For us – it just makes sense!

We have a lot of people to transport around! I am totally indifferent about them style wise (won’t be getting my pics taken with the limo) but I think it will be functional and fun to be with all my girls before the ceremony and with the entire wedding party on the way to the reception.

I don’t think they’re tacky, I mean some of them can be over the top and are really just for show. We aren’t having them because we have rode in a limo a few times and feel like we’ve been there done that sort of thing. So we’ll most likely be renting a volvo suv or the camaro.

Limos remind me of prom too. We are skipping the limo and going with a classic car his family owns for our day of transportation

I don’t think they’re tacky, in fact, I get excited every time I see a white limo and I perk up looking for the big white dress!!

A limo wasn’t big enough for us though adn due to the weather in June we opted for a party bus. It had to be big enough for about 25 people and have air conditioning.

i don’t think they’re tacky, but they aren’t “us.” especially for our wedding, which was pretty casual. i stayed at the venue the night before with most of the wedding party, and my husband just drove his own car and got ready at the venue, so there was no need for transportation.

All limos are not created equal.  If you don’t want the “prom” feel or the party wagon- you will want the limos that people reserve for other occasions… er… funerals.  They are the nicest vehicles- really


no pink fuzzies or hot tubs in the back.  Just a plain black, classy limousine.

Honestly, I can’t think of anything else that would work! There aren’t any trolleys, and we’re driving all the wedding party around (from house to venue to hotel), so we need a lot of space. We won’t really be using the car for a photo op, so I just went with what was practical 🙂
