Wedding Limo: 5 mistakes to avoid when renting a limo for your wedding

Renting a Wedding Limo


If you ask any married couple if they would have done anything different when planning their wedding, they would tell you all the mistakes they made.

And some of those mistakes have to do with their wedding limo rental.

Renting a limo for your wedding may seem like a simple task, but just as your wedding planning requires a lot of details, so does your wedding limo rental.

Not to worry! We’ve listed five common mistakes many couples make and offer solutions so you don’t have to experience them yourself.

Reserving your Wedding Limo Late

Reserving a wedding limo is one of the most important to-dos when planning your wedding, so it’s important you make your reservation as soon as possible.

Wedding experts suggest your wedding limo be reserved at least 6 months in advance of your wedding day.

Though most companies can accommodate last minute requests, if you want to get the limo you believe will complement your day, it’s best to reserve your limo early.

Not comparing Limo Features

Many brides and grooms who select their limos based on appearance and not feature will tell you if they could do it again, they’d pay better attention to a limo’s features.

For example, a vintage car built for two may sound like a fabulous idea. But if the bride’s wedding gown is full with a lot of fabric, she most likely won’t be comfortable riding in this style of car.

Or let’s say your wedding party totals 14 people but you rent a limo that can only seat 10. Though the look of your preferred car is important, don’t neglect what it can offer as this can be an asset or a liability to your day.

Hiring Over-Priced Limo Companies

The saying “you get what you pay for” can be true, but may not always apply to value.

When deciding on a limo company to go with, make sure to do your research and to compare prices.

I’m addition to browsing their online galleries, call them and speak so you can get a feel for how they handle your call.

How you feel when you speak with them can dictate how happy you will be with the service on your wedding day.

Another important tip is to choose a limo company who offer limo packages that best fits your budget. Just because a limo company charges top-dollar for their cars doesn’t mean they are going to offer quality service.

Reserving a Limo and not viewing it before your Wedding Day

One of the biggest mistakes made when booking a limo is also one of the simplest, seeing the limo.

Many reservations are made online because they are convenient.

Though reserving a limo and not seeing it until the day might work for traveling or attending parties, for your wedding it isn’t.

You want to have peace of mind knowing everything will be perfect on your big day, and the best way to do this is to view your wedding limo before the day of your wedding.

Still reserve your limo online, but be sure to see the limo at least one month before your wedding day to make sure the limo you reserved is the one you will get and that it’s really the limo you want.

Not Planning an Itinerary

An itinerary is important because it helps keep everything on schedule and gives the driver an idea of where you’ll need to be and at what time.

Without an itinerary, you can find yourself running late or missing important moments.

You can also incur extra charges due to wait-times and added distances that weren’t discussed with the limo company.

Having an itinerary will save time and energy since your driver will be able to understand your schedule, getting you to where you need to be on-time. It can also save you money.
