    I said save as no one will see it but the bridal party that's using it but my mother insisted on getting a limo and I couldn't fight the battle, myself anst husband are paying for our wedding so that is definitely not something we would have spent money on

    Save. We're having everything at one location, a campground, where we'll be staying for the whole weekend, so no need to go anywhere even at the end of the night.

    Save. We are either using our own car or asking my parents if we can "borrow" theirs for the day. They have a large SUV that seats 7 comfortably...better than a small sedan for the wedding party to all fit in!

    If you asked me last week I'd say "save"... I still say save... I can take it or leave it... The groomsmen aren't getting a limo, I wasn't going to... Our venue is all up in one area, photos, ceremony and reception, so I wasn't concerned about fancy cars.

    Now my dad is wanting to book a limo for himself/me/bridesmaids... So we'll probably have one... but I wouldn't be surprised if my FH and I (well, by then he'll be my husband Smiley love ) take a taxi from the reception to the airport hotel...

    Save! Don't pay for a vehicle unless its local and no one will remember what you came in.
    We took my car as most of the family drove down themselves and one location only.

    Save? I guess? We are planning a destination wedding. To get the group to the airport at the same time (and to save on parking rates from the airport) we will be arranging limos for the entire group. In the end this will save money but may still be costly

    Save. We do have a limo rented but we got an amazing deal on it, otherwise we would have just used our own cars.

    Save for sure. We just used vehicles of the wedding party to get around the day of. A limo would have been nice, but the price of it for a short period of time wasn't worth it to me.

    Save. Everyone from our guest list is local, save for about 6 people, but they will be staying with at home for those few days, so it wouldn't be a big deal in terms of space, and they wouldn't need a ride since we will be providing them with transportation with our own family cars. Perhaps, we might need to rent out one or two cars, but we won't know that for sure until our guests have confirmed their attendance. We still have about 9 months to go to the wedding day.

    Definitely save. Our hotel is not far at all from the venue. We'll probably Uber it over or just get one of our friends to pick us up

    Save. It would be nice to have a limo at minimum but we just can't justify the expensive costs. We are planning on having my mom rent a mini van for the weekend to shuttle us around for the day to which will have at least $700. So expensive to have transportation.
