We’re not renting any transportation, but I did want to!  We decided it’d be silly to spend so much $$ when people have cars!

I’m getting ready at the ceremony site, but Fiance and I are going to be driving in his car all day.  It’s a comfort zone for both of us!  I’m going to get him some new seat covers though because the ones now are a tad dirty.  I’m a little worried that my dress will get a little dirty, but that’s life, right? haha

 

For the bridal party, Maid/Matron of Honor and a Groomsmen are toting everyone around (all the girls in Maid/Matron of Honor car, and all the boys in Groomsmen car) to make it easy on parking, etc.

We’re in the same situation.  10 minute drive between the hotel and the venue.  We rented a shuttle bus for us and the entire bridal party.   It was way cheaper than a fancy limo but still does the job.

can you change at your venue? we rented a limo but since my mom lives literally 5 minutes from the church me and my girls drove ourselves there, i had the limo pick up the boys at the hotel and bring them to the church and then my husband, myself and the entire bridal party rode back to the hotel in the limo. i dont think your dress will get dirty, but its worth seeing if they have a changing room at the venue, i didnt change until i got to the church.

You certainly can use your own vehicles. Although limos etc make great pictures, they are one area where you can trim the budget.

Ask the owners to have the vehicles cleaned before the wedding, then line the seats and floor with sheets.

we wont be having cars as we will be getting married at a hotel,  he will arrive in his own car, but i will already be there,  and all i have to do is walk downstairs…..  but i will really miss the traditional  photo-in-the-car picture…..maybe we could still do that in FIs  car…..its a nice BMW,  mine is too tiny,  but we could put ribbons and flowers on his car just for the pictures i suppose?
