Arrive In Style - 6 Tips For Booking Your Wedding Transportation

Why not arrive in style to the best day ever?!

If you’re pre-wedding preparations, ceremony and reception are taking place at different locations then you might want to think about hiring someone to transport you and your bride tribe from point A to point B. Now, there are plenty of options from vintage cars to stylish limousines to fit your wedding style, but there are a few more aspects beyond style that you’ll want to keep in mind while you book transport for the big event.

When it comes to booking your wedding transportation be sure to think about these 6 things before you book:

Schedule for the day

To ensure you make to the ceremony on time, you’ll want to nail down your schedule in advance so you can communicate when and where your driver(s) will be needed on the big day. You’ll also want to think about whether or not you will need transport for the duration of the event or if you’re just opting for a showstopping entrance or exit. Either way, you’ll want to know the times you’ll need transport at any point to make sure both you and your driver are prepared and on schedule.

What’s the budget?

Budget is going to be a key factor when booking your wedding car, but sure, we don’t need to tell you that! You’ll need to consider the cost per hour, mileage and the distance from pickup to drop off locations. Some companies may only book for minimum time slots, so be sure to ask when enquiring.

Contract Details

Read the fine print! This seems like a no brainer, but contracts are so important. Be sure to do your research before and ask as many questions as you need before signing the papers and paying a deposit.


We all know the roads in Ireland can get a little tricky! Better to be safe with detailed directions for your wedding chauffeur. If you’re travelling to more than one location throughout the day be sure to specify times and locations clearly.


Don’t forget your just married signage! Spice up your wedding transportation with some snazzy decorations like flowers or a classic “Just Married” sign.

Accommodating Special Guests

You may also want to consider whether or not any of your guests will need special accommodations when it comes to getting to and from the celebrations. Think about hiring an extra car for any elderly family members that wish to leave the celebrations early or need extra help getting to and from the festivities.
