I think you know your wedding party best and will know if this will offend them. I know my sister did this for her wedding. We are also considering our transportation and may also forgo the limo for my sisters luxury SUV. That would also only fit 5 people. I think it’s fine as long as it isn’t a surprise to the rest of the wedding party the day of and you (or FI) have organized transportation to the ceremony, pictures and reception.

Would you still be heading to the ceremony with your girls? Would you be taking the towncar there?

I think this would be fine. Just make sure you are clear to everyone in the wedding party who has transportation provided and who will need to find their own way. My FI was in a wedding last summer and everyone in the wedding thought there was a limo but then it was just the bride, groom, BM & MOH in the car and everyone else was trying to find a ride at the last second. Had they known earlier everyone would have been fine with it though!

I don’t think it would be rude. As a BM in my sister and BF’s wedding, I never expected to ride in the car with them after their ceremonies. I figured they wanted to have some time to themselves to just let everything soak in and enjoy the moment before the reception.

How many other people do you have in the bridal party? I think its a bit odd to ride with your MOH and BM and Husband but not the best man or groomsman…

I think it would be fine. But it would probably be better for just you and your FI to be in the car IMO. If you want some friends there, then the best thing to do would be the MOH and BM because they already have “honor” in their names. I don’t think the others would be upset about it.

Wait, by BM I assumed you meant Best Man. If you meant bridesmaid, well then that’s another story. It would be weird to include just your friends, but not his.

I’m assuming BM is Best Man and not Bridesmaid. I think it’s ok as long as no one else is expecting you to provide them transportation. I’ve personally never been in a wedding where the transportation wasn’t provided for me, but again, as long as they know up front, I think it should be fine.
