Mistake! The right limousine service can add a great deal of style and sparkle to the wedding day, whereas choosing badly can cause wedding day disasters that won’t be easily forgotten. The following are some tips to keep in mind for choosing a Kansas City limousine rental service for this most special occasion.

 

1.      Book early.

Wedding seasons are busy for Kansas City limousine companies, so it is best to start looking for a service as soon as the date is set.  This will allow for a thorough research of various providers and models. Choosing a service in a rush can set the wedding party up for needless anxiety and unwelcome occurrences such as breakdowns, non-shows and substandard limousines.

 

2.      Plan thoroughly.

Ideally, the wedding day should be completely planned out and the limousine service should be incorporated into the plan. Limousines can be used to escort the bride to the church, transport the wedding party to the reception and to give a luxurious airport send-off to the newlyweds. A clear estimate of the time and cost of the limousine service can be made once the wedding day plans are in place.

 

3.      Compare services based on overall value, not just price.

Pricing policies can differ across companies; while the per-hour charge for a company may be lower than another, it does not necessarily mean that they will be cheaper or better value for money. Discounts, wedding day packages and gratuities should all be taken into account when deciding between different providers. To have a perfect wedding day  it may be worthwhile to pay extra for exceptional service, reliability and comfort. 

 

4.      Choose an appropriate model.

The limousine model should be chosen after considering the seating requirements, features and policies of the rental service. The size of the wedding party should dictate the type and number of limousines needed, and the bride and groom can decide if they want a limousine with music, champagne, sunroof etc.

 

5.      Allow for changes and delays.

Every wedding is full of surprises, delays and contingencies. More people than are expected show up, weddings and receptions are delayed and last-minute changes happen to honeymoon plans. All this is part of the charm and thrill of a wedding, so it makes sense to take contingencies into account when choosing a limousine service. It is wise to book an extra hour and to book an extra limousine to keep the wedding party – in formal dresses and tuxes – from getting cramped.

 

6.      Look for wedding packages.

Kansas City limousine rentals can provide or design special wedding day packages with discounted rates. A wedding package can include additional luxuries such as a liveried chauffeur, red-carpet roll out for the bride and an after-wedding toast for the newlyweds on the way to the airport or honeymoon destination.

 

7.      Sign a contract with a reliable company.

The last thing any bride wants is to wait for her limousine while the groom is waiting at the church. The reliability of the limousine company is very important in the smooth functioning of the wedding day plans. The ideal limousine rental service should be licensed within Kansas City, have good credibility, insurance, and a well-maintained fleet. It is always advisable to have a confirmation and a signed rental contract after making a booking.

 

Limousine transportation plays an important role in the smooth functioning of a wedding, and it is important to choose a rental service after careful consideration. Keeping the above tips in mind and planning ahead can prevent problems and hassles on this special day, and become part of a couple’s memories forever.
