We don’t want a limo. I think it’s a frivolous expense. We can’t decide on whether we should have someone drive us around in the vehicle that we rent (we’re thinking an SUV) or if my fiance should just drive. I mean, what’s the big deal if he drives? Right?
What’s your mode of transportation for your wedding? Limo? Bus? Town Car? Regular Sedan? Luxury car?

We drove ourselves to and from the wedding. Actually we had to play musical cars to get the people and cars all there.

We have decided that we will just rent a large SUV and FH will drive it around that day. We will take a cab/catch a ride back to the hotel at the end of the night.

We are thinking of… a school bus. Maybe. I don’t know. It’s not exactly super classy, but it is kind of charming, and we happen to have access to quite a few as there are three drivers in the family. When FI’s sister got married, their grandfather drove the bridal party out in one for their entrance because there is really no where to walk in from since we’re getting married in a field.
I don’t think it’s a big deal. It’s important to some people, notsomuch to others. If your Fiance doesn’t care, why not save the money and let him drive?

@ MissAsB – that’s what I want to do, just drive ourselves around all day. It’s not a big deal to us. But family members are saying it’s not right for the groom to be driving. They’re so demented!
@ Amaryllis – I would love a bus! But buses are still expensive in my city. Almost the same cost as a limo, I think. But yes I agree, buses are so charming 🙂

We will arrive in the rental cars my parents are getting for their trip to MN. Neither of us wants to drive the day of though, because of nerves/stress/distraction and the resulting possibility of an accident. So we’ll just be carted around by friends or family in whatever car they have!

We are renting a dodge camaro in red!!! I’m super excited about that one, but sadly FH will be the one driving it. Atleast he gets to have fun!! LOL!

@vfoster03: Dodge challenger or Chevy Camaro?
We’re probably going to rent a small car so we can head out afterwards to our honeymoon (I don’t think his car will make the honeymoon trip :/) or we have enough tax return money, I could get a used car…maybe.

We drove our own car- we have a bright red Jeep Wrangler. I always thought it would be so much fun to drive off in that! I thought that a limo wasn’t really our style either, I would rather spend the money on other things.
We both had a good laugh over getting out of the jeep in our fancy clothes at the fancy resort that we stayed at the night of our wedding and having the valet pick up the car.

If everything goes off without a hitch we, he and I, will arrive seperately via firetruck and picked up together on a firetruck to go to the reception. I love that he is a firefighter and it so has it’s advantages. As a back up, like if it rains or the department gets a call and they won’t be able to kinda thing, he will be driving his truck and we will shuttle around in it.

We are going to drive ourselves also. We are on such a tight budget that renting a vehicle wasn’t even on our minds! At our venue, we have access from 9am to midnight. I’m thinking that my maids and I will do a “sleep-over” thing at one of the maid’s house, while my fiance will stay at our duplex with our dog. It’s a 45 min drive to the venue, on a boring eventless highway.

My mom’s good friend is letting us use her Pontiac Soltice. It will be waiting right outside the church. Mom purchased these neat magnetic signs to put on the doors that say “Josh & Leah” Just Married…so fun!!

We are using the wedding as an excuse to buy a 1965-1970 Mustang. My FH had one back in high school and beginning in college that he and his step dad fixed up (it was a 1969 Coupe) and I was soo bummed he sold it.
He was going to surprise me, but decided it was too big of an expense to not have my input on, so anyway he said he wont let me see it once we find one. I’m very excited! He and his step dad are going to work on it and fix it up just like the did with the previous one so we can get away in style!
We are not sure what we are doing for our wedding party… we are thinking of maybe renting them a car to drive, or just seeing if they wouldn’t mind coordinating and have two of the groomsmen drive everyone around.

We are hoping to use FI’s ’57 Chevy Bel Air or ’61 Ford F150!

Totally agree with you, AmberEyes. We are not having a limo either, probably just get a cab to the venue (it’s like a 10 minute drive). We don’t have a car and fiancé doesn’t even drive.
