When Jac and I got married—way back in the dark ages, we had two options for arriving at and leaving our wedding ceremony. We could drive one of our cars or we could hire a limo. We were very young and funding our own wedding and the cost of a limo was out of the question. So, we left in my 1964 Studebaker!
Our friends wrote on the black paint in white shoe polish, attached all sorts of stuff to the back bumper, and covered the engine in foul smelling fish. Fortunately, I had recently purchased a newer vehicle and had it safely hidden away from my delightful family and friends! The Studebaker never fully recovered from this experience.
Today, your choices are much broader. Do you want to arrive in a horse drawn carriage? Or is a vintage vehicle more your style? How about a stretch limo? Or even a one of a kind custom car? In our area of North Carolina all of these are possibilities.
There are other considerations for transportation needs at a wedding. Are most of your guests coming from out of town and staying at one hotel? Is your wedding ceremony and reception at a different location from where everyone is staying? Do you want to provide safe reliable transportation to all your guests so they can party and not worry about driving back to the hotel?
Why do you even want to consider hiring a transportation company to get guests to and from the wedding?
Providing transportation to the wedding from the hotel, allows your guests to relax on the way. They don’t need to worry about driving in a strange city or getting lost. Everyone arrives on time! You won’t need to hold the ceremony up waiting on special guests to arrive.
If you are serving alcohol at your reception, it is wise to provide a way for guests to get safely back to the hotel after the party. This allows them to party with you and not worry about having too much to drink. You don’t need to worry about checking your guest to be sure they are able to safely drive.
The transportation company provides a trained skilled driver who can safely and reliably get your guests and wedding party to the exact location they need to be at in a timely fashion. Insurance, in the unlikely event of an accident, is provided by the company. This helps protect you from liability in the event someone is injured.
When you provide transportation for your guests, you are showing them that you care about their comfort, safety and enjoyment. Isn’t that how you want your guests to feel about your wedding?
