Let’s face it: people like to drink alcohol at special events — especially at weddings. And if you have guests coming in from all over the United States, chances are they might have flown in for the big day. An increasingly popular thing for the bride and groom to offer is some kind of wedding shuttle service. And with marriage rates at a steady 2.1 million over the last five years, you can be sure to find some kind of limo service for your day.
Having some sort of wedding limo service in place to take your guests home after your reception not only ensures that they will have a safe ride home and won’t be driving under the influence, but it’s a nice little touch that shows your guests that you really care. And since most limo services have a minimum rental of three hours, you should be more than set to accommodate the excessively inebriated, the elderly or people who just don’t have a car.

The Ultimate Designated Driver: Hiring a Wedding Shuttle Service
- If you’re like most partners to be, you’ll probably be renting a limo of your own for after the night is said and done. If this is the case, you probably want to look for this limo at least 6 to 9 months before your wedding. While you’re searching for your private limo, see if you can also look into wedding limos to be used at shuttles. You may even get a discount for booking them all at the same time!
- When first looking for a shuttle service for your wedding, see if your friends and family have any recommendations or any tips for what limo companies to avoid. If you’re still having a hard time finding one, try searching online for local limo companies in your area.
- If it’s possible, try to look at more than one limo company when deciding where to get your wedding limos. The last thing you want is to find out that you could’ve gotten the same services for much cheaper at a different business. Many limo companies will list their prices online, so be sure to check them out before you go in to book.
- Once you decide on a company, be sure to go there in person to talk with a staff member and explain exactly what you’re looking for (and to see if there’s any good deals for a private limo and limo shuttle service combined). And don’t be afraid to ask questions!
