We walked! So my ‘getaway car’ was a pair of grey Prada hightops that I changed into..

Our secondary choice was going to be taking an Uber. Its a nice enough ride and was easy/ cheap to arrange.

901bride:  As PP said, Uber is an option and you can upgrade to a nicer car to drive you away. You can also rent a car and driver, which is cool since the cars tend to make sweet photos. We are considering a company that would pick us up in a Bentley or Rolls Royce, more for the photos than anything.

 

Fiance wants to drive us away in his car, but I told him no because my dress won’t fit! lol

We’re thinking about ordering an Uber Black car – it’s quite a bit more expensive than my typical UberX, but for us it would probably be less than $20 since we are only traveling a couple of miles. I’m wondering if the driver will be surprised to pull up and have a bride and groom get in, haha, I figure it must happen to them on occasion. We live in a big city and getting a dedicated car was going to be at least a couple of hundred bucks and we thought it would be nice not to task any of the guests with being a designated driver for us :).

We ordered a bus for guests so they could drink and we had a limo

It depends on where you live. Uber is not available everywhere. You can book a taxi or a town car if they are available. Limos often have 4 hr minimums so that can be expensive.

If you are staying at a local hotel, they may or may not have a shuttle that could pick you up.

Failing all those, you can arrange ahead of time for one of your non-drinking guests to chauffeur you to your hotel.

Our venue offers accommodation (which some of our guests will be utilising), so we haven’t decided whether we will stay there or somewhere else (my Fiance wants to stay somewhere else so that we can still have privacy the following morning). If we do decide to stay somewhere else, we’ll probably have a guest (most likely my mother, who doesn’t drink) drive us there. We aren’t having some grand exit or anything, so our transportation isn’t that big a deal to me.

We were able to get a limo that didn’t have a 3 or 4 hour minimum, and were billed only for the trip from the reception to home.
