Your wedding day is a once in a lifetime experience. You’ve been dreaming of it since you were a child and you want to know that everything will go perfectly, from the first breath of air you take that morning to the limo ride away from the reception that evening. That’s why, when it comes time to choose a limousine service for your New Jersey wedding, you want to know in advance that the company you select will provide everything you need.

Wedding Limo and Car Service

The first step in finding a good wedding limo service is to make a list of the specific services you need, the location of your wedding, reception and eventual destination, and your budget. All of these factors will impact which limousine service you select.

First, determine what type of limousine you want for your wedding day. Most people don’t spend a lot of time in a limousine, so they don’t consider the huge range of things that will affect their ride. There are limousine town cars complete with chauffeur and the bells and whistles of a simple limousine, stretch limousines that can carry a larger wedding party to the service, or simpler town car options for the bride and groom to escape after the ceremony.

Another thing to consider is car service for close family members to and from the ceremony site. The bride and groom’s families, the bridesmaids and groomsmen and any other close members of the wedding party can all be transported by town cars or limousines to the wedding and from the ceremony to the reception site.

Finding a Good Limousine Service in New Jersey

Once you know for sure what type of car you want for your wedding, who will ride in the car (or any other cars) and the distance the car will travel, you can start looking for a wedding limo that fits your needs and your budget. There are a number of resources to do this, but the best option is often to seek out the opinions of friends and family or online reviews of local limo services.

Specifically, look for factors like timeliness, hourly and mileage rates, and the specific services offered. Ideally, you want a limo service that offers customizable wedding packages, including transportation to the hotel after the reception and even transport to the airport the next day (if applicable). Make sure to ask about any rules that might impact who you select. Each limo service has different rules related to the geographic range of service, number of people in the car, and extra services like drinks or karaoke.

Preparing for Your Wedding Day

Before the wedding day make sure someone communicates to your limo driver any instructions related to your wedding including pickup times, drop off times, who will be in which cars and things like photo shoots after the service and before the reception. When done properly, you can have a wedding to remember, cruising around the city in luxury.
