Wedding Guest Transportation Ideas

October 14, 2021

Planning a wedding requires more work and attention to detail than many can even imagine. You must find a venue, book entertainment, figure out how many people you want to invite and so much more. One thing that cannot be left out of the process is wedding transportation for your guests! Check out these fun ideas for wedding transportation to make sure your guests arrive on time and in style.

Do I Need to Book Wedding Transportation for My Guests?

Not every wedding needs to provide transportation. First, think about where your wedding will be held relative to guests’ accommodation. If the wedding is nearby and in the city, guests can always walk as they may stop at a local bar before arriving at the ceremony.

On the other hand, if your wedding is far enough away that guests need to drive, you should consider providing wedding transportation. You’ll need to know how many guests will use your provided transportation and how many will find their own as some guests may prefer to drive separately.

What Kind of Transportation Should I Book for My Wedding Guests?

The answer to this question depends on several factors. How many people do you need to provide transportation to? Where is your wedding and what kind of style is it? Answering these questions can help narrow down the right option for you! Consider the following transportation options and how they fit your wedding and guests needs.

Charter Bus

Weddings held in and around city centers are perfect for charter buses. These vehicles are readily available, not too expensive, and a fun experience for guests as they get to ride in style with comfort maximized! Plus, one charter bus can hold anywhere from 35 to 60 passengers making it ideal for larger weddings.

Stretch Limo

Stretch limos are classic options for wedding transportation. Guests will always feel special riding in a stretch limo, and they’re guaranteed to have a memorable experience. Stretch limos go well with mid-sized and more elegant weddings. One stretch limo will hold 10 guests, give or take a couple depending on the model.

Ridesharing Apps

Uber and Lyft now have something called “Events” as an option that allows you to create custom invites and ride passes for your guests. You choose how much you want to spend on each ride, covering it partially or entirely. A really great part of this is that you only pay for the rides your guests use.

Repurposed School Bus

A wedding that provides a school bus as transportation screams a good time. This is a guaranteed fun ride for your guests, and it’ll prepare them for an even better time at your wedding ceremony and reception.

Boat/Yacht

Weddings that are held in a destination area like the beach can take advantage of this elegant option. Arriving on a boat or a yacht to a wedding is one of the most tasteful means of transportation possible, and your guests will feel just how exceptional the wedding is. While providing a boat or a yacht as transportation won’t be cheap, it’ll be a remarkably memorable experience.

Party Buses

Party buses are classic forms of fun transportation, and they’re ideal for weddings where a party is expected after the ceremony. This is a means of transportation that’s guaranteed to provide a good time as many buses have special lights, large speakers, and more.
