So I want to get a limo for our wedding but am confused as to who usually rides in it and how it works really. We will be staying at a hotel about half an hour from the venue and are going to have a first look. Not sure where the first look will happen. I am also thinking that since the only real areas to take pictures at our venue are on the docks and inside where the reception will be, we might go to a park near the venue first to take some pictures. i’m not sure if this means we need a separate limo for the groom/groomsmen and then for me and my bridesmaids/dad/whoever for before the reception or not.
When people do a first look before the wedding do they usually ride together to the ceremony? Our ceremony and reception are at the same place, so we won’t need transportation between the two.
Anyone able to offer any advice?
Sorry if this is confusing!

We had first look, pictures, and then ceremony. We had our pics in a different location so the limo transported us around for that. By “us” I mean me, DH, bridesmaids, groomsmen, ring bearer and photographer, so she could get pictures. My parents and in-laws drove separate.
After the ceremony, since my recpetion was at a different location, the limo transported everyone again (sans photog and ring bearer because we had beer). The limo also took us the long way around so we could take a ride.
You may want to ask the limo what their biggest is. It may say 10 passenger limo, but it will probably only seat 8 comfortably. That’s what happened with us. I would say just take yourselves and wedding party. Maybe do a drive around the city before your reception.

just saw your response; thanks for the advice. I will def have to see what their biggest limo is b/c we have 4 bridesmaids, 4 groomsmen, ourselves, and then the photographers. I guess what I have to figure out is if we’ll do the first look at the hotel or after driving to where we want to take the rest fo the pictures.
