Organising limos in Perth for your wedding day is one of the most important things you’ll need to take care of for the big event. Transport for the wedding day can sometimes come as an after-thought with planning for things like the dress and location taking up more time, but organising the right limos well in advance can make the wedding day much more enjoyable and stress free. Here we’ve detailed three of the most important things you need to consider when planning limos for your Perth wedding. Figure these out now, and getting around on your wedding day will be a breeze.
How long do you need to hire the limos for
Most limo hire companies charge their fee based on the number of hours you need the limos for and have packages for different lengths of time. When you’re thinking about the total time you’ll need to hire the limos for, you’ll first need to consider all the different trips on the day that you need transport for, including:
- Getting the bride, groom and bridal party to the ceremony
- Transporting everyone that is to be included in the location photos from the ceremony to the photo location/s
- Transport from the photo location to the reception
- Getting the bride and groom to their final destination after the reception. (Because of the length of the reception, this trip may be organised separately from the trips earlier in the day.)
Once you’ve worked out the amount of trips you need a limo for, you can factor in the actual travel time between destinations and the time you will spend at each one. Experienced limo hire companies in Perth should be familiar with the actual travel times between the popular wedding locations in and around Perth but you’ll also need to get a good idea of the travel times yourself to help with scheduling different venues and vendors.
How many limos will you need
There are a few things to think about when you’re deciding how many limos you will need to get around Perth on your wedding day. The first is how you will transport the bride, groom and bridal party to the ceremony location. Traditionally, the bride and groom will get ready in separate locations, so this will call for one limo for the bride and bridesmaids and one for the groom and groomsmen. For the rest of the transport during the day, the bride and groom will usually travel together along with the bridal party. You’ll also need to look at transport for the family and any other important guests who may be travelling separately to the bridal party. Depending on the size of the bridal party, you may be able to go with one limo. However, if the bridal party and/or family is large, or the bride and groom want to travel alone, you’ll need to have multiple limos. The amount of people that fit in one limousine will depend on the one you choose. To give you an idea of the variation in seating capacity between the different makes, Hummer limousines can fit up to 16 passengers, a classic 1957 stretch Cadillac seats 8, the popular Chrysler 300c seats 10 and a stylish Mercedes Benz stretch limo can seat up to 8.
Book your limos in Perth far in advance
As with nearly anything you need to organise for a wedding, you should book your Perth limos as far in advance as possible. If you can do this, you’ll have the widest range of limos to choose from, and will be able to book the ones that suit the style you want.
