I have never heard of the wedding party being asked to pay for transportation.  Personally I am a big believer that the bride/groom should pay for the wedding party’s transportation, hotels, and anything special for the day of (hair/makeup if required).

@memo:  The bride and groom should definitely pay for it… if you end up paying for it consider it their wedding present and forgo another gift 😉

No, the wedding party should never be responsible for the limo. Maybe for a bachelorette party but never for the wedding.

No, that is not standard at all, in fact I think it’s rather tacky, rude and presumptuous. Seeing as transportation is probably necessary, they should have either budgeted differently or tried other (ahem, less expensive) transportation options. Limos can be pricey, but there are other options! I would be way put off by this.

This is not your responsibility. If the bride and groom cannot afford to provide a limo, it it is still their responsibility to arrange transportation (use of private vehicles) for the wedding party.

I could see being asked to provide your own transportation to the venue, by driving your own car, catching a ride, taking a taxi that you paid for, heck, even a helicopter if that’s what you want to pay for. But I can’t see anyone expecting you to pay for a limo if it’s not your choice. If the bride insists you ride in a limo, the bride pays.

No I don’t think that is standard.  It should be the bride/groom who pay.  Unless for some reason all the BM/GM got together and decided they were going to do this for the bride/groom?  Maybe then…but I’ve never heard of that.

Limos are SUPER expensive. I was floored by the cost when I was looking into a way to get our BP from the ceremony to the reception. No thanks! Like @kes18, I could understand if the bridal party got together and said, “Okay, here’s what a limo costs, is anyone interested in splitting it?”

no – this is definitely not standard – the bride and groom should be providing transportation.
