So I was wondering if it’s okay for me to just hire a towncar for the a couple of hours to drive me around on the actual day of my wedding.
Originally we were planning to walk from the church to the reception venue – it’s a 6 block walk – but it’s expected to rain on the day of the wedding so I thought it might be best to just get a town car.
My dilemma is, do I have to tell them that it’s for a wedding or can I just say I need a car to pick me up here and then take me there wait for an hour and then drop me off here? Is it unethical for me to say that I’m going to a wedding and lie that I’m the bride?
Where I’m getting ready is also just two blocks away but I figure since there’s a two hour minimum, why not book them for the two hours and just be a little bit lazy.

If it’s in your budget then why not? It’d take some of the stress off of you but make sure then that you’re very clear on who gets to ride in the car and who doesn’t if you have a large family. Some people might take it for granted, if they hear that you’re providing transport for yourself, that you’ll also provide transport for them.

But am I under obligation for telling the car company that I need them for wedding day transportation or no?
I feel if I mention the “wedding” word that they will upcharge me up the wazoo. Meanwhile, it will only cost me $88 dollars for two hours (plus tax, plus tip which is like $100) most wedding packages would charge me over $300 for this.

No, you’re under no obligation. However I would tell them if you’re planning to pay them AFTER the fact. You never know if the driver will say something to the depot later….
