    What about a sedan? They are usually cheaper than a limo. Could your photog take you perhaps (if you have that job of relationship)?

    Could you share more background about your situation?  Do either of you own a car?  Then you could drive yourselves…

    How about convincing your FMIL to convice the friend with the cars to let you all borrow the car. That way your FI could drive you all to the reception. I could be his wedding gift to you all.

    Offer to pay you FMIL’s friend. That way he won’t be the only friend attending but he’ll be a vendor. Hopefully that will help convince your FMIL that it is okay and keep her friends from being offended.

    I wouldn’t ask the photographer for a ride. Horribly unprofessional!

    Limos and car services are on Groupon all the time.  Have you signed up to see if you can get a deal?  Also tippr, living social, groupalicious…. tons of “deal of the day” type services.

    I also found a lot of limo companies with package minimums. But I kept looking and found hourly rates. Have you tried asking? Even if they don’t advertise hourly rate they might still do it.

    @BrandNewBride:  Oh, silly guys.  Your dress will fit!  If it were me, I’d say take the Focus, or check out deal-of-the-day sites like @fishbone:  suggested.  🙂

    Well would your FMIL be willing to pay the $400? LOL
