You’ve gotten engaged, you’ve chosen your venue, and now you are working hard to plan every detail of your wedding. This day is going to be perfect! As you strive to put together all the pieces of the seemingly never-ending puzzle that is your special day, make sure you don’t overlook the one detail that is often disregarded and left out — transportation. Forgetting to plan transportation for yourself or for your wedding party could seriously hinder the flow of your big day. Alternatively, relying on members of your wedding party to have their own forms of transportation can put a lot of pressure on them. But it’s easy to avoid all of that! Here are five reasons that group transportation is the way to go.
1. Group transportation sets the tone for the day.
After a restless night of not-much-sleep, you wake up at the bed and breakfast you’ve been staying at with your bridesmaids. Today is the big day. You take a deep breath as some mixture of nervousness and excitement drives you to get out of bed. The girls grab their dresses and make up, and after a hearty breakfast, you all leave the bed and breakfast to begin writing a new chapter. As you step outside the inn, a dazzling and sleek white Jaguar limo waits for you. You look at your bridesmaids, their faces glowing as huge grins break out across their faces. This is the real deal. This is really happening.
The presence of a limo, a trolley, or any other form of group transportation can drastically change the way you and your wedding party perceive the day. To step outside and see that gorgeous limo sets the tone for the entire day. It provides luxury and comfort as you calm your nerves and prepare for the happiest day of your life.
2. It leaves you with one less thing to worry about.
Any former brides can tell you that while your wedding day might be one of the best days of your life, it can also be pretty stressful. Your wedding planner will do an incredible job putting all the details together and executing your day-of timeline, but there will still be things you find to be stressful. By choosing to use group transportation for you and your wedding party, you have one less thing to worry about on your wedding day! Leave it to your experienced chauffeur to navigate busy roads and manage pick ups and drop offs.
3. Vehicles can be used as a photoshoot prop.
Whether it’s a year from your wedding day, or a decade, you and your spouse will always enjoy looking back at the photos from your special day. Not only will group transportation make things easier and more fun for you, but the vehicle will make a great photoshoot prop! Whether you have a Hummer limo, an old-fashioned trolley, or an antique Chevy, you will love posing alongside a great-looking vehicle. Invite your wedding party and guests to take pictures with you next to the vehicle! Or, go solo for some incredible portraits.

4. Transportation will impress your guests.
As the reception comes to an end, your wedding guests gather outside. A sleek limousine pulls up to the curb as your guests begin to light their sparklers. They look over at the limo and think about how amazing it would be to ride in one of those. You and your spouse exit the ceremony hall that evening one last time. You approach the limo as you make your way through the tunnel of sparklers. Your guests can’t help but notice how dazzling you look getting into that sophisticated stretch. Your now-impressed guests begin to wave and cheer as your limo pulls away into the night.
Using transportation on your wedding day will never fail to impress your guests! Think about weddings you have attended in the past. If those weddings featured some form of stylish transportation, chances are that those weddings stick out in your mind. Of course, while impressing your guests with sophisticated rides is not the main purpose of wedding day transportation, it certainly is a tasteful touch.
5. Being together allows you and your wedding party to bond.
Sometimes, the members of your wedding party are a group of your lifelong friends who are all well acquainted with one another. However, perhaps more often than not, your bridal party will be a total grab-bag of people who have never met each other in their lives. Your brother might be standing next to your buddy from when you were stationed in Texas in the Army. Your best friend from high school might be sitting next to your sorority sister from college. Thankfully, using group transportation can give your groomsmen and bridesmaids extra time together to bond and become acquainted with each other. This time together in the middle of a busy day will be very valuable and will provide a break from the hustle and bustle of your wedding.
