Are you planning to hire a limo for your wedding day? If the answer is yes, then there are a few questions you need to answer to make the experience successful. What is your budget? What size of limo do you need and what style of limo do you want?
Whatever style wedding you plan, you’ll want to arrive and leave in style. Most limo services won’t reserve the limo a year out, so the best you can do is call at the nine-month mark. Keep in mind; you will need to book your limo 6 to 9 months before your wedding day. There are are many people in line and booking early ensures you’ll get the best limousine.
Before you book your limo, you will need to have this three things at the back of your mind.
What is your budget?
A good limo service could be hired at the rate of $150 to $350 an hour based on you want. To cut cost, consider only renting it for an hour. Of course, be realistic. Will your whole wedding go off without a hitch in an hour or less? For the best of both worlds, rent the car for an hour longer than you expect to need the limo. This way, if anything goes wrong, you won’t be stuck at the venue with no way home. Weddings don’t usually start on time; it is something that cannot always be prevented. The best man forgets his tie, the bridesmaid leaves her boutique in the hotel room, or the parents of the groom are running late. Reduce your stress by planning for those contingencies in your rental time. You want to be sure you have lots of time for the limo to carry you to the venue, wait for the wedding to start, and then take you away after the wedding.
What size of limo do you need?
The next question you will want to ask yourself is what size of limo you’re looking for? Again the rule of the game is to rent bigger than you think you want. When a limo says it can take ten people, it calculates the average weight of the passengers to be 200 pounds or fewer. Throw a few fat guys in there, and it can suddenly become an uncomfortable ride. Not specifically the luxury ride you were counting on for your wedding day. So if you only plan on a party of fifteen, rent for a party of 18. It is better to have extra room than to create a situation where the bridesmaids will have to sit on the laps of the best men and ushers because you went for a smaller car.
What style of limo do you want to hire?
Lastly what type of limo do you want to hire? You can rent an excellent, classic limo that holds twelve to fifteen passengers, or you can go for a flashy limo like a Hummer, Expedition or old roadster. Be prepared to pay higher rates for the specialty limos.
And as you plan your limo budget you should figure in a 15-30% cash tip for the driver. This isn’t just a kind gesture, it’s expected social protocol so make sure you factor it into your wedding budget.
The most unforgettable advantage of a limo service for your wedding day is that you enjoy a stress-free transport experience. You get to sit back and your personal driver will get you to anywhere you wish to go. Wedding limo service is guaranteed to make your day unforgettable and enjoyable. You can start making life-long memories from the minute you leave your home.
