When clients ask us to organize transportation for them, we often turn to Reston Limo. We are thrilled that they interviewed me recently for a blog post where you can read more about me and get tips on planning for transportation. Hope you find it useful! Below is an excerpt.
What advice do you give to your brides when it comes to transportation services?
Vicky: Plan ahead. I often find that couples consider transportation way too late in the planning process. By then, they have no money left in their budget. If providing transportation to your guests is important to you, price out your transportation options as you are putting your budget together. This goes for valet parking also. It’s not fun to decide last minute that you want to transport all 150 guests from Point A to Point B, on three 55-passenger buses. See what that will do to your budget at the 11th hour!
If you do provide transportation, consider the routing. For example, Old Town Alexandria’s narrow streets are extremely difficult to navigate by anything larger than a limo. Trust me. I’ve seen a stretch Hummer trying to make a left turn onto King Street. It wasn’t pretty and it took a very, very long time. Your sales reps should be able to help you with these issues. Finally, do not underestimate travel time. Allot more time than less time for traveling between places. Especially in the DC area, you just never know what traffic would be especially during tourist season!
