    It depends on the feel of your event.  The party bus, or option one definitely has a more lux feel, and has that fun vibe.  The other feels more serious.  The party bus lends a more social aspect since everyone is seated facing one another, but the option 2 has everyone sitting one way.  Option 2 says to me,”the goal here is to get to the venue and thats it”  Option 1 says you get there in style and fun.  If you have more serious people id say 2, but one looks way more fun!

    @hollyberry4:  I said # 2 because they won’t know what they’re missing.  I would rather get to the reception quickly versus having to wait just for a neat bus.

    Our friends had a party bus to the the bridal party around drinking for like 2 hours between ceremony and reception. It was the most fun we have ever had. EVER. 

    Never go wrong with a party bus

    I actually like both. Party buses are obviously awesome, but I also think the other bus is cool too. The second one is easier for guests to get in and out of and would definitely be helpful for older people. I think older guests might appreciate the 2nd one, while younger guests would love the party bus.

    The number of people transported isn’t that big of a difference, so if you really like the party bus you might as well go with that one.

    I would choose the party bus if it were to transport my bridal party, but the standard bus for the other guests.  The older folk may not appreciate the party bus very much 😉

    Party busses are a lot of fun, but if it’s just transportation back and forth to the venue it’s probably not worth the extra cost (we saved $800 by going wiht regular busses and no one minded a bit).

    I picked bus 2 because it seats more people, you are throwing a reception for them to party at, there doesn’t need to be a party bus. Also those party buses say they fit X amount of people but they don’t take into account people’s purses, size of people if they are larger etc. I got a party bus for an event and I was told it fit 15, it really fit 10 unless you were squished in with arms at your sides and didn’t move. The second option looks like people will have a defined seat/amount of room and still serves it’s purpose…get them to the ceremony/reception!

    I vote for the party bus- It should have enough room

    I think it depends. If mostly my friends were using it, I’d say party bus. If it was family, grandparents, aunts and uncles, I’d be embarrassed to put them ina party bus lol. It really depends on the crowd in my opinion.

    How long is the ride from the hotel to the ceremony/reception venue?

    Can you stand up straight in the party bus? Or do you have to scoot/crawl down the seats?

    I think the regular bus would be more comfortable (easier to get on and off) and if any guests are prone to car sickness facing forwards is much better than riding sideways.

    @hollyberry4:  With the drive being 20-30min long, I think I would really prefer option #2. Party buses are a ton of fun, but they don’t really allow for much personal space at all. Everyone is crammed next to each other and you don’t have an arm rest or any way to get comfortable.
