- Wedding: September 2013
Hi Bees, the FI is working on booking our transportation right now. My bridesmaids and I will be staying at a hotel about 10 minutes from the Ballroom. My FI and his guys are staying about 10-15 minutes away in the opposite direction. His parents are staying in a hotel two blocks from the ballroom. My parents are possibly staying at the same hotel as his parents or the same hotel as me because my mom will use the same hairdresser as me.
My plan was the have the limo come pick up me and the four bridesmaids at 5pm, bring us to the ballroom (there’s a waiting area for the bride) and then go the other hotel to pick up the guys around 5:30 for the wedding to start at 6:15. A black town-car would get my parents and then another one would get his parents. Then we would get a Rolls Royce as the getaway car for the end of the evening, just to take us back to the hotel. Our parents could opt for either a taxi or a town car to take them back. Does that sound okay logistically?
We also just received a quote for the limo and the rolls royce. The company wants to charge us $350 for the limo and $650 for the rolls royce. This sounds extremely high to me, especially since we’ll only be using the limo for a little over an hour and the rolls royce for 30 minutes at most. The company rep said they only rent the rolls royce as part of a package deal for 3 hours usage, which we don’t want. Are we being scammed? Should we negotiate with someone else to just do an hourly rental or are vintage car rentals all “package deals”?
