An engagement and subsequent wedding can be one of the most memorable elements of one’s life. For many brides, a wedding can also turn into an incredible task, where organization and planning make the difference between an okay event and a truly memorable milestone. Not only are there themes and colors to choose, there’s also the transportation logistics of getting all your loved ones from the ceremony to the reception and then safely home again.

After deciding on a date, ceremony and reception sites and the size of the wedding party, it’s time to get into the logistics of planning wedding transportation. Much like booking a venue, it’s important to secure wedding transportation early. Sites such as recommend solidifying your transportation approximately four to six months in advance. Couples planning a wedding, around a particular holiday or event such as New Year’s Eve, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day should book out even further. As for the budget, wedding experts recommend setting aside two to three percent for transportation needs.

Reliable and Professional Transportation Services

For the most accurate count, know exactly who will need transportation on the big day and for other events such as dress shopping, showers and bachelor and bachelorette parties prior. In addition to including the bride, groom, wedding party, parents, siblings and grandparents, it’s a good idea to consider if you’ll also provide transportation for relatives, friends and/or out-of-town guests. If the budget doesn’t support including everyone, it’s still nice to tell others about local transportation options that allow guests to make their own transportation arrangements.
