Transportation

Some of my wedding party (okay, the future in-laws) are making a fuss over transportation. My fiance has a sporty car we are using as our leaving-church vehicle; he will be also be driving to church in it with his best man. I'm perfectly happy taking his other car, a white SUV, to the church and letting everyone else use that after the ceremony. Is this reasonable? Or should I be paying for a limo for everyone?

    Hells to the NO...you shouldn't have to pay for a limo if you don't want or really need it!!

    You don't need to pay for anything that YOU don't want. I'm not booking any transportation for anyone. We're just carpooling. Our ceremony and reception are in the same building, so it's not like we have an "arrival" to the reception, or a getaway car...

    Your guests are more than welcome to book their own extra transportation... my dad is probably booking a limo for himself (and his gf and my sisters).

    Totally up to you - we are renting a nicer car than ours for the two of us to use the day of the wedding. We will be doing a first look, then driving to pictures together, then to the church and reception together. One of the groomsmen will drive us. The rest of our wedding parties will ride in a couple of their/our cars (Probably our little hatchback for 3 of them, and our better sized car for 4 of them).

    Its up to you. If you don't want to spend money on the limo. don't.

    my only thing (after being in too many weddings). you should provide transportation for your wedding party to the church/reception hall and wherever photos are (they can find own way home or to the hotel). It doesn't need to be fancy or traditional. just something to get them where you require them to be.


    we are renting a city transit bus (we have a connection to get it for cheap). and it will be so much fun.

    Husbands car is ok to take to save that cost for the wedding party and family. Just get as many vehicles filled with them all to transport them to the church, reception and home/hotel.

    Limos are nice yet expensive for one day only. If your wanting the wedding party to pay part of the cost, that's something to consider and let them decide to pitch in with you. If its family and want them to get that service for one day, then look into it and see if the budget fits within your means.

    Have a designated driver for each vehicle to be on the safe side.

    I would say to just carpool there and back. No need for a limo especially if you won't be getting any pictures out of them.

    I don't think that limos are a necessary thing nowadays. We aren't overly picky with what the transportation is, having said that our wedding is also out of town and we are shuttling people in via school buses. people don't remember the transportation

    I’m really not into limos. If people want to feel special try renting luxury cars through turo. Me and my bridesmaids are all renting a Tesla model X in white for like, one third of cost and we get it for the day if not more. My fiancé also wants to take his own car since it’s a luxury sedan and it has a cooler for drinks; but if he wants something new he’ll rent a turo car as well. We both have designated drivers in our parties.

    Completely your call!! Originally we were going to use my FHs sports car as well but now we found a great deal at the bridal show for a limo package so were going that route!

    It's whatever you prefer! I get why people like to splurge on a limo, for sure it's nice. But it's pretty pricey, and not necessary. It's a "typical" wedding thing though, so maybe they are dissapointed because they were expecting it.

    Do what feels right to you! We won't be having one personally.

    Girl! i'm going to be a little you do not need to pay for a limo for everyone. I don't understand why people make a big deal about what vehicle they arrive in to the church? what does it really matter haha. just in my opinion anyway, I don't think you should be getting a limo for everyone if that's not something you really want to do. don't worry about pleasing everyone, its just a car ride.
