You might consider the ceremony to be the most integral part of your wedding. But it wouldn’t be possible without transportation. Without it, there would be no guests, no bridal party and most importantly no bride or groom. So getting your wedding transportation booked should be a top priority during your big day planning. Or you can expect delays and miserable guests as a result.

Take a look at these amazing tips to make sure you choose the best possible transport to get you and your guests to the church on time.

Hire a professional      It might be tempting to save some money and ask friends or relatives to transport you and your guests to your wedding venue. But in reality, this can cause more confusion and requires far more planning. You will have to organise who is going in what car and ensure everyone knows where they are going. This is a headache you could do without on this special day. It’s far less stressful to hire a professional transportation company such as Shofur to get everyone there on time. These companies can provide cars and buses which allow everyone to stay together. Which can create a more exciting atmosphere. Some transportation companies can also offer more unique options such as limos, vintage cars and double decker buses. Which will let you travel in style and be ideal for some pre-wedding photograph opportunities. Book well in advance and always ensure the driver knows exactly where he is going to avoid getting lost or delayed.

Plan for delays       Accidents, bad weather and roadblocks can cause unexpected delays to your travel plans. So when organising your transportation, it’s vital that you give yourself plenty of time. This will ensure that even if you experience delays, you still have sufficient time to get to the wedding venue. 20-30 minutes is more than enough. Before your big day, take a ride and follow the route you have planned on the same day and time. This will give you some valuable insight into traffic, roadworks and alternative route you could take instead.

Don’t forget about after the wedding too       While getting to your wedding venue is a top priority, it’s vital that you also consider transportation for afterwards too. You might be going on your honeymoon straight after the reception and need to get to the airport. Or your venue might be in a remote location where it’s difficult for your guests to park or catch a ride home. So try to make a transportation plan for after the wedding reception is over, as well as before the ceremony. You might want to hire a shuttle bus to take your guests back to their hotel. This will be highly appreciated by guests who aren’t from the area. You may also want to book a taxi or town car in advance to take you to the airport or back home. Just make sure you choose a suitable time for everyone to be picked up.

With these tips to help you, this important part of your wedding day can be organised and booked with ease.
