How to Choose the Proper Limo for Your Wedding

As the big day approaches and you start to finalize a number of wedding plans, you’ll need to select a limo rental service. This may seem like a simple enough decision, but there are a number of factors to take into consideration – from the duration of the rental to the type of car you will rent and what other services you will need. If you need a limo for your NJ wedding, here are a few things to ask yourself in advance.

Duration and Cost

First, consider the duration of your limo rental. Most limo rentals have a minimum time of three hours. Specialty limousines like Hummers may require an even longer minimum rental and if you are getting married in early May, you might have to contend with prom, further increasing the duration required for your rental. There is, of course, no maximum time for your rental, so just be sure you have a full schedule in place for your wedding day before you call the rental service.

The cost of a limo can vary dramatically as well. Basic limos can cost between $200 and $350 for three hours of reserved time while specialty limos can cost as much as $1,000 or more for the same time period. Cheaper limo companies are not always better, either, so while it is a good idea to set a budget in advance, be realistic about what you want and check reviews before opting for any one service.

Size and Color of the Car

The limousine may not be used only for the bride and groom. In many weddings, the entire wedding party will travel in the same car, so you want one that is large enough for the whole group. In some cases, you may even rent a second town car or limousine to carry part of the wedding party. However, if the wedding party is small or if the bride and groom will be traveling separately from the rest of the party, then you can get a much smaller car with a more intimate feel to it. White is considered the traditional color for a wedding limousine, but don’t feel like this is your only option. There are black limousines available as well if you want something more classic to match your wedding.

Finding Service You Can Rely On

More important than the car in almost every way is the service you receive. A beautiful car is meaningless if the driver is rude and late. that’s why it is important to do your research. Ask around to see if your friends and family know of a good NJ limo service. Check Internet reviews for limo rental service profiles and see what other people had to say.

You want someone that will take your itinerary, stick to it carefully and be a friendly, but unobtrusive part of your wedding day. From the moment they pick you up that morning to the final goodbye to your family and friends, they need to provide exceptional service. This is your wedding day after all.
