    A friend of my parents’ has a coach bus company, so he’s letting us use one on our wedding day (the nice one with TVs and a bar, not like well-travelled Greyhound bus style haha), so we’re going to be travelling with the wedding party.

    I’ve seen it done all ways – bride and groom leave together, bride and groom leave with the bridal party, even once where the bride and groom left separately because the bride wanted to go buy a new pair of shoes before the reception because her heels were killing her haha. I personally don’t see the point in having someone else drive (unless it’s a paid driver), but if it’s important to you to have those few minutes of time to focus on each other while someone else drives – go for it! : )

    We are taking limos everywhere all day. If I were you though is get the best man to drive the decorated car and you guys chill in the back seat.

    @Nookie123:  My mommy drove me to the church, lol. We had a limo take us from church to reception.

    When my friend got married her husband drove and she was in the passenger seat. They borrowed her grandpa’s really old souped up car. I sat in the back 🙂

    I see nothing wrong with driving yourself.

    I’m walking! My parents’ house is reeeeally close to the church, to the point that hiring a car would be farcical.

    I had a friend drive me from my Mom’s house to the church, and two of my brothers were our chauffeurs from the church to the reception, the DH drove me to the hotel.  

    It was really nice to cuddle up with DH right after we got married and just hang out in the back of the car, I’m glad he wasn’t driving us!

    FI and I are using a limo for most of the day (his preference, I could do without).  Our ceremony venue is about 25 minutes out of town, and the reception another 20 from there. 

    I’m not sure how we plan to get the ceremony venue yet (assuming parents), but we’re taking a limo after the ceremony and up until a midnight pickup, as we already know we will be drinking (limited open bar) and driving 30 minutes home is not an option.

    I like the idea of decorating your car and the two of you driving though!
