I am thinking about having a limo for the wedding party from the church to the reception. The problem is that there are 7 bridesmaids and 8 groomsmen. I know that there are extra large limos, but this seems extreme. Any ideas?

Almost all transportation companies have shuttles. Those hold larger groups of people and can be quite nice. They also have larger limos available for less than 20 guests (think hummer stretch limos…).

You could get a bus. That might be fun.

we are having the same dilemma. our reception is less than a half mile from our church. it really feels silly to pay for a huge limo (min 3 hrs) for a half mile trip. i think we are going with a borrowed classic two seater for us, and the bridal party taking their own vehicles. also, we are having a (mostly) green wedding – a 14 person limo seems way too extreme for what we envision. We did, on the other hand, book a shuttle to take guests to and from the reception (from their hotel) to avoid anyone getting lost or driving after they’ve had one too many.

I would call around to the limo companies and see what they have. I was just in a wedding with 7 bridesmaids and 7 groomsmen, plus the bride and groom and flower girl– so 17 people total (same as yours) and we all fit into the limo without any problems! The bride & groom even had the seat at the very back to themselves!

How far is the church from the reception? If they are only a few minutes away from each other, the limo could do two trips.

this is what my fsil and most likely what we’ll be doing. my ffil has an RV and we’ll be using that.

My sister had a separate limo for us gals and for the guys…which was actually kind of fun. I think we had champagne in there too (it was like a 30 minute drive for us).
Another friend had a shuttle for all of us (BM’s and GM’s). I’m not sure how many people those long SUV limos hold, but I personally don’t like SUV’s with formal clothing b/c of the step up and so I would prefer the shuttle.

The reception is about 15 minutes away. Getting two limos or a bus (maybe trolley?) might be the best option.

Our ceremony and reception are at the same place so we didn’t need transportation for that. However, we did find a limo company that would pick up the groom/groomsmen and take them to the venue and then come back to get us. Furthermore, instead of making us pay for the hours between ceremony/reception and going back to hotel, the limo is going to come back at the end of the night. They’ll take one trip for me and my groom and then come back for the bridal party. We also are going to rent a school bus (yes, a yellow school bus) to transport our guests to and from.

You should definitely look into if there is a local trolley available. What time is your wedding? I talked to a Limo company that has transfer buses, and if it’s at a time where they would be able to rent out the vehicle later that night, then they’ll charge less. My ceremony is at 4pm, so she was saying that someone could also rent it from 6-10 and they’d end up better.
