When planning the transport section of your special wedding day, you need to consider a few things:
In retrospect this seems obvious, so we wanted to share it with you so you can learn from other people’s mistakes.
You have all arrived at the church. Bridesmaids, yourself, your dad all in the Classic Wedding Car together. You have had a great gossip, some excited giggles, have confirmed the order to walk down the aisle and are all set.
We fast forward and ceremony is now over so who goes where and when?
Think about the practically of the day..
Your Mum and Dad
But what about the Bridesmaids?
Save yourself hours of preplanning and juggling by getting all the bridesmaids in taxi too.
So that is Who and Where sorted, but When?
Not the best of planning…. What happens if you are late, & the ceremony starts late? What happens if you decide you want more photos than planned outside the church or you have to wait 5mins for the rain to pass.
The taxis arrive at the designated time.
This is the one time they are unlikely to ‘just around the corner’ and ‘will be there in 5 mins!’
The clock is running and if you all leave 20 minutes later. They are a taxi company they will start the clock running and be charging you waiting time.
Who is going to pay that additional charge? Will the Bridesmaids have extra cash on them? I doubt it.. No room in there dresses for anything else!
Plan timings, warn the taxi company it is a wedding & they may need to hang around longer. Book them for an hour after the service starts, instead.
Agree a figure to pay them in advance.
Look out of the box, don’t put unnecessary stress on yourself or anyone else.
Enjoy your day.
