- Wedding: July 2012
So, my wedding day went off without a hitch… although that may be because my wedding planner made sure I didn’t know a single thing about what went wrong.
My only major complaint is our horrible limo driver, unfortunately the only detail that couldn’t be hid from me…
When he showed up to the house, he warned us that it was going to rain, and that we better have an umbrella. I’m in my dress, with my girls, about to leave my house.. and I’m thinking “YOU’RE the limo driver! Isn’t an umbrella in the vehicle sort of a requirement.. considering how much we’ve PAID YOU??”
Anyways.. we get in the limo and head to the church. I noticed we were nearing the turn where the church was.. and the driver was nearly going to pass it! So everyone yells at him to turn, and he nearly side swipes another car sitting in the intersection because he made such a wide turn.. bigger than what a 14 passenger limo would require.
After that, he pulls up to the parking lot of the church, parks the car and opens the door to let me out. He refused to drive the limo into the parking lot to drop us off near the door. My dad made a joke about whether the limo driver wanted him to park it instead..
So there we are, all 6 of us girls, walking down the parking lot in our long dresses, my white gown trailing along the dirty ground. And what would you know, once the ceremony was over the limo driver had pulled into the parking lot… and it doesn’t even end here.
After photos were taken he drives us to the hotel, and the entrance we need to enter is not the main entrance. We told him, East side of the building, not the South side. So where does he start to go.. the South side. By this time the groomsmen were getting fed up so they yelled at him to pull infront of the East doors, which he did, and once again he parked pretty far away.
I must say, I am really disappointed in how horrible our driver was. He wasn’t dressed nicely, looked like a gangster, had an attitude and made countless mistakes. For the amount we paid.. I’d say we got ripped off!
Warning to other brides.. make sure you let your driver know exactly what you expect of them.
