Wedding Transportation Tips
When should you book your wedding transportation?
Between three and six months out from your wedding, you need to secure your transportation. When you've long settled on your date, ceremony and reception sites and wedding party size it's time to select a company to provide bus service for your guests. A company such as Barracuda Travels can transport your wedding guests hassle free in a large motor coach that seats from 47 to 58 people.
Who should you transport?
Take a headcount for family and guests. For many weddings, that means the couple, their wedding party, both sets of parents, siblings not in the wedding party and grandparents. Some couples also provide wedding transportation services for close relatives, out-of-towners or all guests. You should also consider providing transportation for all wedding guests as an option so you don't inconvenience them with Uber charges and long drives in a strange city. Keep other distances, like the miles between your wedding venue(s) and the hotel in mind too.
Also, check with the hotels to see whether they provide any airport shuttle service. If so, inform your guests. Otherwise, a company like Barracuda Travels can arrange a minibus to meet and greet guests to shuttle them to the hotel.
The ride to the ceremony
Brides and grooms often travel separately in a minibus along with groomsman and bridesmaids. Barracuda Travels can provide those minibuses, plus transport the entire wedding party in a separate bus. The average stretch limo seats around 10 people, limos seat about 6, and most town cars hold 4, including the driver. However, a full-sized coach bus has room for up to 58 passengers plus gifts, decorations, food and clothing changes!
What is the wedding transportation cost?
You can expect the average cost for wedding transportation to be around 800$. The more vehicles, the higher the price. Most charter companies rates are by the hour and require a minimum time period--typically 4 hours. Calculate the duration from the hotel pickup time to the end of the reception and the return for the night back to the hotel. A 15 to 20% tip is usually included in the contract. Chose a company with lot's of experience and a high Google Ranking such as Barracuda Travels. They are rated just under 5.0!
