My Fiance and I kinda forgot to factor in transportation into our budget…yikes. My venue is about 2 miles away from our hotel. I’m not sure if we want to splurge or just have our parents or friends drive us.
how are you getting to your venue? are you staying at the hotel that you get married at, renting fancy cars, taking a limo or towncar or taking regular cars?

We are going to have transportation for our guests from the main hotel people will be staying at to the Church and then from the Church to the venue. We have a lot of out of town guests so we didn’t want them getting lost or dealing with the hassel of finding parking etc. Since we’re doing that we will have transportation for us as well.
Hope that helps.

- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
Our ceremony and reception venue is a bed & breakfast inn, so we are spending our entire day, from getting ready to crashing in bed, right there. We rented the entire b&b, so some of our guests will be staying there with us. The rest will be in a historic hotel that is 1 block from our venue. It’s super convenient for everyone, and we don’t have to worry about anyone driving after drinking. That is such a huge relief to me.
You could rent a charter bus or a vintage trolley to transport yourselves and guests. My parents own a charter bus company, and they do lots of weddings. If you are just concerned with transporting yourselves, a limo is traditional, but some sort of fun/cool car could also be nice. My bro and SIL splurged on a vintage Bentley. It was stunning and the pictures with the car are still some of their favorites. And if you want to hitch a ride with friends or family, go fo it. just make sure the vehicle is big enough to fit your dress. i don’t know about yours, but my dress takes up it’s own seat! LOL So grab your friend with the big SUV and you should be fine. 🙂

Thank you! We plan on doing our first look at our hotel and then moving over to our venue for more pre wedding pics. We are definitely leaning towards taking regular cars at this point!

We’re just going to take our cars. I’m getting ready at my venue and the reception is in the same place. I’ll probably ride with my BMs to my venue, and my Fiance will drive his own car. That way we can ride away together. We are not budgeting for a limo or anything, we don’t want to spend money on that. Plus I love riding in his car 🙂

We are getting to the venue just by regular cars and carpooling. We get a free limo for renting all the guy’s suits/tuxes so that will be bringing us after the reception to our hotel 🙂

We have a limo included in our Las Vegas wedding package. We’ll probably rent a Sedan for our reception.
