I’m torn between renting a stretch limo for myself and my bridal party to take to the wedding venue before the ceremony, or just using the shuttle we’re already getting to transport our guests.
Any advice? Did anyone rent a limo and feel it was a waste of money? Did anyone do what I’m thinking and use the shuttle? The limo seems really glamorous to me, haha, which is probably the only reason I want it, but using the shuttle would definitely save money.

Shuttles are better. You can WALK into them and no need for crouching, sliding on gross pleather seats in your dress/BM dresses. Plus there’s always a who-ha or hiney getting exposed entering or exiting a limo. Seriously, they’re not that glamourous!

@phillybride61513: Haha, thanks! That’s true, although all of us will be wearing long dresses, so at least there’s no worry in the hoo-ha department 😉 It’s honestly a difference of about $350, sooooo I’m leaning toward the shuttle, but I don’t know. I guess I like the look of the limo better.

We rented a party bus style shuttle for those exact reasons. It’s so much easier to get in and out of a shuttle in you wedding dress. In a limo, you need to gather up your dress to get in, make sure your head/hairstyle doesn’t hit to top of the limo, and crouch the whole time you’re in there. And of course do the exact same thing when you get out of the limo!

We took a taxi to the venue and rode back with the guests on the shuttle we’d hired. No problems at all, was easy and convenient, and I don’t think a limo would have been awesome enough to justify the price tag.
