Guest Blogger Thursday: Wedding Limousines
As I mentioned last week, we will be featuring guest bloggers from other wedding resources to help you as you plan your day. Today we welcome our first guest blogger John Pemrick Lewis from Advantage Transportation Group:
A wedding is a ceremony that celebrates the beginning of a marriage and is considered one of the most important events in life, as well as a perfect opportunity to perform a traditional ceremony and celebrate with friends and family. Costs to creating the perfect wedding may vary and cruising around town in wedding limousines, replete with “just married” signs, champagne and confetti awaits you on your very special day.
|Luxury, comfort and style on your wedding day.
Most couples would agree that arriving at your wedding ceremony in luxury and comfort is tops on the agenda. Arriving there in an appropriately-colored and stylish limousine should do the trick, as most limousines offered for hire are meticulously maintained with a complimentary bar and friendly chauffeurs.
The most simple and basic wedding limousine service will include the limousine, driver and beverages. When it comes to the driver, make sure that the rental company provides a uniformed (tuxedo) driver for the wedding.
Checking on the limo’s appearance also matters. Couples should ensure that the service includes important extras such as “Just Married” signs, red royal wedding carpet, interior decoration, champagne stands, or any other special considerations you may require. Keep in min that the service provider may impose additional charge as extra customizations.

Couples are advised to reserve their choice limousines well in advance. Unless one is familiar with the limousine company and their vehicles, take the time to check on the available options and physically inspect the vehicle. Confirm the dress code for the chauffeur, since you would prefer a fully trained professional chauffeur.
Limousines are generally rated as 6, 8, 10, 12, 14 and 20 passenger-types, so be sure to ask for the year and make of the limousine. Also, consider the size of your party and the gowns when hiring your limousine. While rental costs vary considerably, most companies have a three hour minimum, and some suggest a gratuity of up to 20% for the chauffeur for providing exemplary service!
