We just had people carpool in thier own cars. The wedding party will probably just have to hang around while you are doing pictures, unless they have thier own car then they could head to the ceremony site when they are done with pictures.

wawa92017 :  We didn’t have a wedding party for my second marriage, but for my first we asked family friends to drive the wedding party. We had one car for my Dad and myself prior to the ceremony, one for the bridesmaids,and one for the groom and groomsmen.

After the wedding the wedding party joined their SO’s who drove their own vehicles.

Why not have a ‘grooms car’ and a ‘brides car’ or everyone can take their own cars?

The bridal party will just be hanging out, probably not far from your area. That way they can quickly jump in for group shots if the location/lighting/timing etc is good.

I had the same issue.  Most limo companies will charge the full day prices even if you only need one for a few hours – because its wedding season (altho I feel like it would always be wedding season).  I just sucked it up and paid for it because I really dont want to squish into a car with my dress on.

DH and his groomsmen met us at the hotel where I was getting ready with my bridesmaids and we did a first look in their courtyard.  We had a limo meet us there and drove all the wedding party to the photo location.  We had towncars for the parents, which later went to pick up grandparents and handicap guest so transport them to the ceremony (our venue was within walking distance of the hotel where everyone stayed).
