One of the earliest and biggest conundrums you'll encounter when you’re planning a wedding is figuring out who pays for what. There are lots of different ways to divvy things up, so share your own perspective!

Are you hiring special transportation for yourself or your guests? If so, who pays?

    People will have cars or rental cars that they pay for. We’re getting our Acadia detailed and that’ll be our wedding car.

    We rented a limo for the wedding party but decided to let guests figure out their own transportation.

    We are doing Uber SUV and then a couple vehicles that need to go to the venue anyways so they can get home at the end of the night. The venue is only an 8 minute drive away from the hotel so we couldn't find a limo that would do less than 4 hours in GTA Smiley sad

    We've rented a limo for the wedding party to get the venue. We have paid for this.

    Not paying extra for day-of transportation... Maybe one way limo trip for the hubby and I to the hotel (staying near airport to leave for honeymoon next morning). Our photos, and venue, are in one nearby area, and our ceremony and reception are in the same building.

    We don't need transportation for ourselves since everything is in one location, They party will just travel in groups in our own vehicles. Guests will be given numbers for taxi companies and some will stay in the venue's hotel.

    We aren’t doing wedding transportation. I’ll have someone drive me and the girls down the road to the church and fiancé is going to borrow an antique car from one of his uncles for us to take a little drive after the ceremony. The bridal party will get back with one of the family vehicles once we are done with pictures.

    My fiance and I covered the cost of the limo since we had a lot of driving to do that day around town to get to every venue.

    Our day of transportation has been handled by me and my FH - although, my aunt was able to get us a great discount on the price since the owner of the company is a family friend of theirs

    People are driving themselves and we are renting a car for ourselves - we don't currently own a car, one the 'perks' of living downtown Toronto is that there is no parking anywhere... :\

    We initially were going to have people drive themselves, but seeing as how it is going to be a 40 minute drive outside the city we were looking into getting a bus for those who would pay $10 each for a ride there and back. They would still be paying it themselves (just morning our budget to pay for them), but at least they could take advantage of the open bar?

    We are having people drive themselves, so everyone will be paying for their own!
