Not sure….but I know wedding hair and makeup are way more expensive when you say “wedding” versus “event” – -ITS THE SAME THING!!

I think the word ‘wedding’ makes everything more expensive.  I managed to knock the price of my limo down as i was having a weekday wedding and only wanted one trip when i knew the price he was quoting me was the same he had quoted a friend for a weekend wedding with two trips.  It saved some but not loads, but every little counts!  Definatley shop around though, you will be suprised in the differences of prices charged.  I live in the UK and the quotes i got ranged from £150 to £400!  What a difference!

I dont really think that they charge more. All the wedsite that i have checked out actually all said the same thing regardless of the event. The only difference that i saw was in the car.. the bigger it was the more $$$ it was.. Other than that i dont know.. but it would be messed up to charge us more..

They totally do.  I called for a quote for a limo for my wedding, and was told 4-hour minimum at $200/hour.  Then I called the next day and gave the SAME date but said it was for an “evening out” and there was no minimum!  They quoted me $200 for four hours.  It’s a total racket.  I haven’t booked a limo yet because I’m balking at the cost.

I know I live in a small town… but it’s not like that here. I’m torn on the whole limo subject. I’ve never rode in one and I know this will essentially be my last chance. However I’m a super saver and I feel like it *could* be a waste of money. Either way though the guy that does it here charges a base rate for 4hrs regardless of what your event is.

But also I’m not getting charged more for my “wedding” hair and “wedding” make up. Maybe things are different here or maybe it’s because we’re part of the wedding business communtiy here (yes there are definate perks to it). Or possibly because I’ve used the same hair dresser since I was about 11 and I trust her more then she’ll ever know. There have been times I’ve walked in and said “do what you feel is best”. lol

I’m getting charged an INSANE amount more for my wedding hair and makeup – like three times more than a non-bridal salon day would cost.  I’m ponying up for it because it includes a trial and she’s the only stylist I trust.

We’re also exploring trolley and party bus options in place of a limo.

I agree with the poster that said that anything wedding related tends to be more expensive. Very expensive industry, unfortunately.
