My wedding party is going to be approximately 10-15 people. My family dont really have much money as it is so im trying to figure out what we can all do for transportation since basically a limo it out of the question unfortunately. I want everything to run smoothly and not have to worry as time gets closer as i have only 4 months to go in the first place. If anyone has any ideas of what to do instead of a limo its really appreciated :). its somewhat difficult for myself and my grandmother to ride in one car as my moms car is small and my grandmother is in a wheelchair. with my dress being long and lace, id rather not have to have a tight fit and ruin my dress or something before i even get to the church lol

Rent a car?
Borrow a larger car from someone?

As you didn’t mention your Dad, I am assuming that he is not involved or around.
Can your Mom drive, Grandma in the front, you in the back- to get to the church?
Many couples have their wedding party provide their own cars. Canvas your wedding party to see who has what vehicle and is willing to use it for the day.

Were you looking for transportation for the entire wedding party or just your mother and gma?
If it’s just the three of you maybe you can ask around to see if a family member or friend knows of someone that has a nice car to lend you? or drive you? My FI’s dad is lending us his corvette since we don’t have the $ for a limo either.
What about a town car? Those are a lot cheaper than a whole limo.
Also, keep an eye out on Groupon and Living Social—they always have deals for those types of things. Good luck!

@julies1949: yes my father is not around. he passed away when i was 11 so its my mom and my grandmother thats trying to piece everything together along with my fiancees family who is covering the entire reception which is really nice of them. my grandmother is 88 and paralyzed all on one side so its very difficult even getting her in and out of the car. my mom has a little ford focus so there really isnt much room. i myself sat in the back the other day and barely had room imagine how it would be with wedding gown! lol my only problem is my mom and grandmother could go together but then myself wouldnt have a vehicle as my fiancee then would most likely take our car with his best man and groomsman.

@Benavis1489: i was looking for transportation for all of us. as after the wedding we all would be one big family. the bridal party other then family is two of my best friends as they are bridesmaids. my mom is my maid of honor so i couldnt be more happier 🙂 i never thought about the town car idea though. what i could always do is have my fiancee go with his best man and groomsman as those two are brothers and then myself go in a town car or something. i just want everything to go smoothly and no one be stuck at the location of the reception afterwards haha

we searched craigslist for discounted limo services.. just make sure you check the limos out in pperson. see their insurance coverage make sure its current. we are paying for a limo to take us from hotel to church and back. but since our location is two blocks away from the guys office he is giving us a deal at 100 dollars total. pick up is at 2 and then he probably be done by 2:30/3 then he has to come back at 5:30 and his night will be done by 6:10
