Bride & Groom
On the wedding day, it is general practice for the bride and groom to only meet at the actual wedding ceremony. This means that separate transportation must be arranged for the bride and her party and the groom and his party.
Depending on the number of people in each party a minivan or minibus will work perfectly to keep everyone on track and on time.
Once you are officially man and wife you get to explore a new set of travel options. These include either renting a bus which can accommodate your close friends and family so that the celebrations start on the way to the function. You may also choose to leave in star-like style, stepping into your own limo as you enjoy your first ride together as Mr and Mrs You may even want to indulge in more nostalgic options like an old-fashioned Beetle or the like. When it comes to your choice of car, a reputable chauffeur should be able to meet your needs, after all – it’s your special day and you get to call the shots!
Return transport of guests to and from ceremony and reception
Airport Pickup & Drop Off of guests to and from airport & accommodation
Making wedding transport easy for your special guests will ensure they arrive relaxed and on time. The below page gives a step by step guide to making the right transport choice for your wedding guests.
What does wedding guest transport include:
Wedding transport packages can vary slightly, but should typically include the same mode of transport to pick up your guests from a location, deliver them to the venue and then a return journey at the end of the night. A driver should be included; along with petrol and a backup option in case of issues on the day. If you require multiple pickups and an additional return journey earlier in the evening, these will need to be specified when booking.
If your wedding is at a location where taxis, car services, or other public transportation simply isn't available (or isn't reliable), transportation can cause extra headaches—especially for guests who might not be familiar with the area—and may result in late arrivals. And don’t forget to think about parking. If designated parking isn't available at your venue or is limited (or expensive), that’s going to be a burden for your guests. In any of these instances, it’s worthwhile to look into booking a shuttle service for your wedding guests to give them a transportation option that ensures everyone arrives on time without issue—and will also help everyone to get home safe.
If you have a room block at one or more hotels in the area, make these the pick-up and drop-off points for your wedding guest shuttle—which could be as large as a full-size bus, a minibus, a 16-passenger van or larger SUV that could make multiple trips, depending on what you think you'll need. Handing out welcome bags? Make sure to include a printed copy of the schedule. And don’t forget to tell guests when shuttles will be available to depart from the reception, too. If you have guests who are older or who have hired babysitters for the evening, they’ll appreciate knowing when they’ll be able to head home, as needed.
For guests who choose to stay at other hotels, let them know if they can drive on their own, or if they should park at the shuttle pick-up locations to join the rest of your guests for the ride.
Once you’ve finalized the transportation schedule, be sure to pass along the information to your guests: Add the details to your wedding website, letting guests know from where and when the shuttles will depart, and ask the concierge at the hotel to post a sign in the lobby, as well.
How Should Everybody Get To and Fro?
There are actually three routes to consider besides your walk down the aisle: the trip to the ceremony, the ride between the ceremony and the reception (if they're not in the same place) and the getaway. You'll need to figure out who needs transport where before you actually book anything.

your budget allows, parents and attendants can ride to the reception in the same vehicles that brought them to the ceremony, while the couple takes a private car. The whole group (or select members) can also pile into a guest shuttle, if there is one. Otherwise, parents and attendants can ride to the reception with relatives or friends. Just make carpooling plans well in advance, and communicate with everyone involved.
The postwedding getaway: Like every other aspect of your wedding, your getaway mobile should complement and match your sense of style as a couple (not to mention that this is how your guests will remember you and your honey—pardon the cliché—riding off into the sunset). Do you see yourself waving goodbye in a horse-drawn carriage or convertible red Mustang? Departing in a classy Rolls-Royce or rock-star stretch limo? Though the options are many, choose something that fits your budget as well as your personality. (Now's the time to test drive that dream car or even rent the boat you've always wanted for a night!) We've got plenty of other awesome wedding transportation ideas to consider too.
The ‘Official Honeymoon Holiday’ transportation
If your wedding plans include leaving for honeymoon within the first couple of weeks after your wedding, then treat you and your partner to an airport limo. Not only will this mean extra time to focus on the one you love, it will also mean a way around the stress of parking and paying to keep a car at the airport.
Your driver will pick you up wherever you are staying, enabling you to arrive timeously at the airport. You can also organise for the limo to pick you up when you return from your trip so that you complete your honeymoon experience on a high note.
Wherever you go and whatever you choose, take time out to enjoy this special experience and make memories which will last a lifetime.
Customize the Experience
So the wedding guest shuttle is booked—but let's not forget, this isn't some airport transfer to pick up your rental car! Keep the energy high and set the tone for the celebrations to come with a few little surprises for your guests, which could include everything from a curated wedding day playlist (double-check with your shuttle company whether you'd be able to have the driver stream a digital playlist or if you should burn it onto a CD) to bottled water, sodas, and snacks. If your shuttle or bus company allows it, you could even have a cooler of beers, cans of rosé, or thermoses filled with your signature cocktail as options for guests to sip.
