From a wedding planner's perspective, nothing is more important than timing on a wedding day. Well... I guess the flowers, the cake, the dresses, the food, the bar... all of these things are high on the list, too : ) However, it is oh-so-so-so important for everything on the day-of the wedding to run perfectly on schedule. A great helper in this department is to have coordinated transportation... for your guests, bridal party, family, and yourself. Here is what I recommend for the perfect day-of transportation schedule :
Bridal Party : Limo/Limo Bus/Trolley : The men are transported to arrive at the church 1 hour before the ceremony, so they are able to help with ushering guests. The women are transported to arrive at the church 15-20 minutes before the ceremony, just enough time to line up for the processional.
Bride & Parents : Town Car/Limo : The Bride and her Parents are transported to arrive at the church 10-15 minutes before the ceremony... ideally, to arrive, and have a few moments in the car outside of the church. Her mother and father escort her into the church, and her mother is escorted in (by an usher) just before the bridesmaids, while she waits with her Father.
Guests : Limo Bus/Bus/Trolley : The guests have the option to ride from the hotel to the church, then to the reception on a bus/trolley. This is not absolutely necessary, but appreciated if you have a large number of out-of-town guests.
The Bridal Party : Limo/Limo Bus/Trolley : All of the members of the bridal party ride together to the reception site.
The Parents : Town Car/Limo : The parents ride to the reception in a town car to the reception site.
The Bride & Groom : Vintage Car/Town Car/Limo : If the Bride and Groom would like to ride reception be themselves (as opposed to riding with their attendants), a special car should be waiting for them outside of the church.
It is very important to be able to rely on the company you choose to provide timely, courteous service on the day of your wedding. Who does The Bliss List recommend? Pech Limo.
Pech has an amazing fleet of vintage cars (my favorite!), limos, and town cars. Most importantly, they have drivers that are known for their responsibility, professionalism and timing!
