As with any bride-to-be you’ll want to tackle your wedding transportation to and fro for yourself and the wedding party in your wedding planning. No doubt you’ll be on Google searching for as much information as you possibly can for a wedding limousine or wedding car hire. This can be an overwhelming experience with a multitude of information and wedding car hire companies throughout Melbourne and Victoria.
Here’s some guidelines when choosing a Melbourne Limousine from a hire company.
Firstly, set a basic timeline.
Factor in getting your hair and makeup done, photography session with your photographer and wedding party, videography and any other factors that might impact your limousine transportation. Allow a little extra time for any emergencies.
It’s time now to research limousine hire services in Melbourne. Whether you’re based in Melbourne or regional Victoria, most limousine hire is available throughout Melbourne and outlying regions.
Remember that during peak seasons and around holiday periods limousines are booked out fairly early, so start researching your limo service early – say 4 to 6 months ahead. Love Limo’s BMW classic limousine is the only one of its kind in Australia and therefore very popular.
What’s your budget for limousine service in Melbourne?
Just as importantly as budgeting for your wedding dress, photographer and other important aspects of your wedding day, it’s just as important to budget for your transportation for your wedding. You’ll need to consider the distances involved from one point to the other, the hourly cost of car/limousine hire, and how many people can fit in the vehicle that you’ll be renting.
Hourly rates vary and take into account:
- Year and model of the limousine / wedding car
- Distance to and from the venues
- Luxury or standard limousine / wedding car
Most limo hire services for weddings set a minimum of three or four hours and provide wedding packages such as our wedding limousine packages.
At this point it’s wise to know before-hand whether you need one or more wedding transportation vehicles. For example, do you need the limousine for the bridal party and a sedan wedding car for the bride or the other way around? Ask the limo company if you can view their limousine in person as not all limos are of a quality you’d expect! You should also verify that there’s enough room for a comfortable ride and whether refreshments are supplied.
Love Limo’s BMW limousine seats up to 10 passengers comfortably and provides refreshments as standard.
Check the Fine Print
Now that you’ve decided on your transportation needs and you’ve got an idea of how much it’s going to cost, it’s time to check the fine print. Here’s what you need to know:
- Total cost, deposit required, cancellation policy, refund policy, arrival and departure locations, pick-up/drop off times, exact models of the wedding vehicles, overtime rate per hour, inclusions, exclusions.
- Verify that the driver is licensed and insured.
Communicate with your Limo Hire Service
If you have specific requirements, make sure you email them to the limousine company – this may include specific directions, alternate routes in case of a traffic jam, and contact phone numbers in case there’s any issues on the day.
