3 Things To Keep In Mind When Hiring A Limo For Your Wedding

If you want to reduce the stress of your wedding day, you should hire a limo to take you to your ceremony and to your reception. Here are three things to keep in mind when hiring a limo for your wedding day.

Time Limits

Most limo rental companies require you to rent out a limo for a specific amount of time, generally a couple of hours. When you call up limo companies for your wedding, ask how long you have to rent the limo for. You may need to rent the limo for a longer period of time, but you need to make sure that you will be able to utilize the limo at least for the minimum amount of time that is required.

You need to figure out the time frame for when you need the limo. You'll need the limo to pick you up from wherever you are getting ready at and transport you to the location of your ceremony. Then you will need a ride with your spouse from the ceremony to your reception.

Remember, everything may not go according to plan, so when you book your limo, see if you can book a chauffeur that doesn't have another job lined up directly after yours is scheduled to end. Ask specifically to hire a limo for a specific period of time, and on an hour-by-hour basis after the scheduled time ends. 


Many limo companies have limos that come in a wide variety of colors other than the classic black. Make sure that the color of limo that you hire for matches the theme of your wedding. You don't want your limo to clash with your dress or with your surroundings.


Don't wait until the week of the wedding to finalize a limo. Choose a limo service and go over the contract before your wedding day. Make sure you sign the contract and finalize the payment, itinerary and all the details before your wedding. If the limo company insists on being paid the day of the wedding for their services, arrange for someone in your wedding party to take care of the final payment for you. That way, on the day of your wedding, you are not having to worry about signing a contract and finalizing payment. Make sure that the contract meets all of your needs for your special day.

If you want to use a limo to transport you around on your wedding day, make sure that you are aware of the minimum time requirements and vehicle appearance. Finally, make sure you take care of the contract before your big day.
