What You Should Consider if You Decide to Rent a Limousine for Your Wedding

Many soon to be married couples love the idea of getting into a limousine both before and after their wedding. Limousines are associated with very special events and are considered by most people to be very lavish and stylish. Since your wedding is the most important day in your life, deciding to use a limousine to chauffer yourself and your wedding party is appropriate.

There are several things you will want to consider when deciding to include a limousine in your wedding plans.

  1. What kind of limousine you want. Many limousine services offer more than one type of limousine. Some of them even offer like new looking classic cars. This can give your wedding transportation a very unique look, particularly if you've chosen to have a historically themed wedding such as a victorian wedding for example.
  2. How many people are going to be riding in the limousine. If you only plan for you and your beloved to ride away in one after the wedding, then you may want to choose a limousine such as a classic car, or some other smaller limousine. It will probably have less amenities but if you will only be riding in it a short time, this makes sense. However, if you are planning for your entire wedding party to ride in the limousine then you should probably consider a stretch limo so as to accomodate everyone.
  3. The theme of your wedding. As mentioned before if you have a wedding that is historically themed such as, for example, a roaring twenties wedding, you may want to find a limousine service that has refurbished cars from the 1920's. This way you will be able to keep to the theme of your wedding, right down to the transportation!
  4. What color of limousine you want. While many couples choose the traditional white for their limousine, since some brides are choosing other colors now for their dresses and for their wedding colors, you may want to choose a different color. It is something to consider anyway as to how far you want to take the color scheme, and if you want to include it in your transportation.
  5. What kind of reputation do limousine services have that you are interested in. It's always a good idea when doing research into limousine services to ask for references. Find out what other people think of the company, and find out if any of your friends or family have used them before. Sometimes your family or friends will be able to recommend a service as well, and you should take this into account.
  6. How many styles that the limousine services you are interested in offer. Some services only offer a limited number of styles. If you are still not sure exactly what you want, this can be a detriment. The ability to have the option of several different styles to look at is important, especially if you are still looking into services. So if a service doesn't have many options you may want to look elsewhere.
  7. What limousine services that you are interested in charge. Cost is very important especially if you have only a certain amount of money slotted for a limousine. You should be able to rent a very nice limousine for no more than $2,000 for your wedding. If a limousine service charges more than that, then it is probably time to look elsewhere.

If you take all of these things into account when deciding on a limousine service, you will be far more likely to be a satisfied customer than if not. It's so easy to get caught up in the pomp and circumstance of your wedding, that sometimes the little details get ignored, or people get in a hurry and overlook something. However, just looking over this list and making sure you know what your preferences are for your wedding day can make all the difference in the world!
