What Kind of Limousine Should We Get?Your choice of limousine is all about personal preference, your wedding needs and budget. Many services will provide late model "stretch" vehicles such as:
- Lincoln Town Cars
- Cadillac Escalades
- Hummer H2s
- Antique Vehicles
- Rolls Royce
- High-end Sedans
- Wedding Bus
How Much Will Our Limo Cost?Limo services generally break pricing into two categories: by the hour, or by drop off and pick up. A typical price runs $200.00 up to over $1,000.00, depending upon the vehicle you choose.
Questions to Ask Your Limousine ServiceYou will probably have a list of your own questions to ask, but be sure to include the following when speaking with your limo service contact. First, you'll need to know how many people will be traveling in the limo. Will you be traveling with your wedding party, or will it be an intimate time for the two of you to catch your breath? This will help determine what limousine or luxury sedan you choose.
You'll also want to inquire about their pricing and model options so you can begin your comparisons. Ask for on-time guarantees. A late limo can cause all sorts of havoc on your wedding day, so stress the importance of your schedule and expectations for timely service. They should be forthcoming about any package deals they may offer, such as in-car champagne service and so-called "red carpet" treatment or after-reception transport to your honeymoon suite. If you are inquiring early in your planning, ask if they have special rates in combination with any of the local reception centers.
Also consider how courteous, helpful, and enthusiastic your limo service contact is about providing you with transportation. If they are happy with their work, chances your driver will be, as well. Other questions to ask include:
- Are the company's insurance paperwork and licensing up to date and promptly available upon request?
- Are there any extra or "hidden" fees for a reception that runs late or a faraway destination?
- Are there different rates for different vehicles?
- Are there seasonal discounts, or discounts by day of the week?
- How many bar areas are available in the vehicle?
- Do they have options for music and movies?
- Do they have on-time guarantees?
Your wedding is an occasion to pamper yourselves, and float in comfort and style to every destination throughout your day. With a well-selected limousine service, you will arrive and depart on-time and in fine style, with or without your wedding party.
