Whether it’s a limo or a classic car, choosing their wedding transportation is yet another decision the happy couple must make. Should you stick with one type of vehicle throughout, or different ones to ensure variety in your wedding photos? Today we share our tips on selecting the wedding transportation you’ll use between your venues.
What’s Your Perfect Form of Wedding Transportation?
If you’ve read our article 10 Unique Wedding Vehicle Ideas, you’ll see there is plenty of choice when it comes to wedding transportation. From a horse and carriage to a tractor, there’s an option for every bride to be! In fact, some brides cannot decide between two options and use one to get to the ceremony and the other to the reception. Which then leads to the questions: is this really necessary? Will one vehicle be enough? How do I pick the right one for us? Here are some tips which will help you decide:
- Budget – money is always going to play a part in choosing your wedding vehicles. It will also limit your options for using multiple forms of wedding transport too.
- Wedding theme – a romantic theme would work well with a horse and carriage delivering you to the ceremony, with a limo replacing it afterwards.
- Weather – the time of the year and season will dictate your options, especially if you don’t want to get wet! Or you could make sure you have a backup plan in case of bad weather.
- Location – the distance between your ceremony and your reception will also help you decide which is the most suitable vehicle. Also, a tractor is going to be more difficult to use in the city, with a sports car being unable to navigate the paddock.
- Bridal party – how many people do you need to transport around? You could consider hiring a bus and even travelling with your guests!
- Venues – if your reception and venue are at the same place, you don’t even need to factor transport between venues into your budget, saving you money.
- Likes and dislikes – the preferences of both of you are also important. You may have dreamed of arriving on horseback, with your husband to be always thought it would be neat to arrive in a Hummer. It’s about respecting each other’s choices while remaining true to your values as a couple – and your budget.
Like with all wedding day decisions, take your time to weigh up all of your options before making a decision.
