Planning wedding transportation can be a cumbersome task….There’s a lot to be done -coordinating with outstation guests to figure out their arrival and departure dates, organizing transport within the city for their last minute shopping and then to ferry them to the actual location of the wedding.
Phew!…With so much more important last-minute work to focus on prior to the wedding, this is one bit of work that one would want to get off their mind. What better than outsourcing the job to the best wedding planner in town to make your life easy!
Your plans for transportation may be grandiose or they may be quirky, but either way, if you are planning a virtual motorcade for your entire wedding group, then it is better to plan and make the bookings at least six months ahead of time and follow up with the guests for confirmation closer to the actual wedding date to make any changes. As part of wedding services, wedding event management companies normally offer end-to-end transportation assistance as well. So you can leave it to them to coordinate with all the guests from time to time.
In sync with the theme?
Are you or your guests arriving as characters out of ‘Cinderella’? Then you might want to get your transportation in sync with the theme and plan for horse drawn carriages with footmen. For an offbeat wedding, you might want to settle for quirky autos to ferry the guests from their rooms to the venue. Even the chauffer’s uniform can be customised to suit the mood! Organizing the extravaganza is no big deal for a reliable wedding event management company.
Snacks & music to get the party started
If you want to stick to the traditional mode of travel, such as a luxury bus to ferry the guests and you to the wedding destination, make sure that the ride is well stocked with the best liquor, caviar and other snacks by the wedding services team. Not to forget, some great music to get the entire jingbang into the groove!
Route maps and timelines
If there is going to be a retinue of personal cars driving up to the venue, do make sure that all the drivers have a route map to follow. Having a guest drifting off course midway is sure to ruin the fun. The wedding event management company that you hire should be able to coordinate and offer help on this front as well.
If you are getting your wedding event management team to take care of transportation as well, then good for you. If not, then assign one person the responsibility of communicating with the transport company, supervisors and if need be, the drivers. Too many cooks will only spoil the broth!
However spontaneous you might like to be, a little planning with the best wedding planner for transportation can make the entire affair a smooth sailing one, while simultaneously ensuring that you keep the unwanted cumbersome stuff off your plate, and revel in the celebrations.
