I am not having a limo since our ceremony/reception are in the same place, but my friend who is getting married a month before us is having a party bus take the whole wedding party and their dates along with the bride and groom to the reception! Should be a blast!

From the house to the church, I wanted all my bridesmaids to ride with me, and my father.  But with our dresses it will be too tight.  So not sure yet, maybe just me and my father. (I think going with the father is traditional)

After the wedding, I don’t care what the etiquette is.  It will just be me and my new hubby, enjoying a little time alone.  It is so hard to get that time alone on your wedding day, there is no way I would let anyone else in that limo with us.

I am getting a towncar for me, my parents and my sister (who is 1 of my 2 MOHs) to take us to the ceremony (ceremony and reception are in the same place). The rest of the bridal party is just taking cars on their own. I think if you’re talking about after the ceremony, the limo is just for you and your new hubby…but that’s just a guess!

It’s entirely up to you.  You have to think about transportation afterwards, too.  If the MOH/BM ride with you (I’m assuming you mean from the ceremony to the reception), how will they get home afterwards?  Will their significant others be responsible for driving themselves to the reception?

Here’s what I did:

1.  Limo picked up the groom and his parents at our house and drove to the ceremony site to get ready first, since they were taking pictures first.  All the GMs drove to the ceremony on their own w/ their SOs.

2.  Limo then picked me and the BMs at the hotel to drive to the ceremony, since the girls met up early to get hair & makeup done. 

2.  The BMs SOs drove separately to the ceremony so they could then hook up post ceremony.  The bridal party were on their own after the ceremony.

3.  Limo was avail for only me and hubby post-wedding to take back to the hotel.

We’re getting a stretch hummer to take the wedding party after the wedding to a park for photos and then up to the reception site. My cousins who are also ushers are going to get the guys from the hotel to the church and we haven’t figured out how to get the girls from the hotel to hair to the church, but I’m not paying for a limo for like eight hours, so it might be my parents’ mini-van!

We also got a stretch hummer to take the entire bridal party to the reception.  I wanted to spend that time with my friends… There will always be time for hubby and I!
