First of all, congratulations on your upcoming wedding, and one of our goals is to let you and your loved ones experience with chauffeured transportation to be a memorable one. We want you and your bride to be to experience the style and elegance our team provides. We want everything to be perfect, so here are some tips to keep in mind:
Find out the number of people you are transporting
Limousine companies usually provide a quotation of the number of permitted passengers in their vehicles. Keep in mind that their policy may vary depending on the service provider you are dealing with. So make sure to jot down the details. Usually, they quote a gross weight on the vehicles. Just check the FMVSS requirements to be sure. They also get the number of passengers based on 150 pounds per passenger. Whatever the headcount would be, always consider the comfort and convenience of your guests/passengers.
For example, an 8 passenger limousine is normally stretched to 70 and 80 inches. The vehicle may be split into half, stretched to 70-80 inches, and then finished by the manufacturer. This is ideal especially for adults. So again, do not book the limousine to its maximum capacity. Always consider getting a larger vehicle or maybe rent another unit for your guests. You can also checkout some stretched SUVs or 28-passenger mini coaches. Take note that it’s a formal occasion—that means they will be wearing formal clothing and you know how things go when you’re on a suit and crowded vehicle.
Communicate with your limousine service provider
Another thing you should know about limousine operators is they have certain teams to handle multi-vehicle charters. So ask the manager if there’s another company who will be handling you on your wedding day. Once you get the details, keep in touch with them. Make sure they all get the details to avoid delays and other problems. If you’re not comfortable working with the second party, contact the operator immediately so they can manage the entire wedding charter.
Check your schedule
We all know that timing is very important when it comes to special events. If possible, rent the limousine for an extra hour beyond the expected schedule. Make sure they arrive 15-30 minutes early to allow extra time for whatever activities or errands necessary.
These are just some of the things you need to consider when renting a limousine on your wedding day. Stay tuned for more tips!
