We often recommend adding a shuttle bus for weddings. While brides generally call us for their own personal transportation, we take the opportunity to explain the benefits of providing shuttle service.
Planning a wedding is very stressful as most couples want this special day to be perfect. Hiring a professional transportation company such as Ecko Worldwide Transportation Group can reduce a little bit of the headache. In this blog, we explore some of the benefits of booking a wedding shuttle.
Booking a shuttle that is large enough to hold your bridal party, family and out-of-town guests will have to worry about parking if you’re getting married downtown or in an area with limited parking options.
The logistics of getting everyone to and from the wedding venue can be daunting. Providing transportation for guests coming in from out of town can be a great help. Our shuttle services can safely and efficiently move large groups of people. Using our mini-buses, we can transport up to 27 people at a time, minimizing the number of trips required to get everyone to and from your wedding and reception. This can be very beneficial for out-of-town guests who don’t know their way around or may not have a car. Need something large? No problem. Consider a luxury 50 passenger coach. Another benefit to hiring Ecko is for our knowledge. If there is a 49ers game or a major concert or conference on your wedding day, it could affect both traveling and parking. We will know about large events that could involve road closures, traffic jams, or other factors that affect travel time. Your chauffeur will know exactly where and how to make the needed adjustments.
Your wedding day will go by quickly. Everyone will want to chat with you and congratulate you on your special day. A major advantage of a wedding shuttle is it allows you a few extra minutes with family and friends. By keeping your bridal party together, you can literally let the good times roll. Traveling to your wedding with parents and immediate family members creates a wonderful family moment on a significant day for your family. As an alternative, the bride and her party can ride together while the groom hangs out with his groomsmen in another shuttle. Shuttles provide a perfect chance for the important people in your life to meet, mix, and mingle. Shuttles also keep everyone safe by ensuring no one gets behind the wheel after those champagne toasts or your open bar – which exposes you to liability. Everyone can party hardy without worrying about getting back to the hotel or home safely.
Many brides and grooms forget to eat on their wedding day. Between getting ready, taking pictures, and pre-wedding jitters, food is often the last thing on your mind. Bring along your own food and beverages to enjoy during the ride. You can include nutritious snacks like veggie sticks or sandwiches. We provide a cooler with complimentary chilled bottled water. After your wedding and reception, you might have items to carry with you such as flowers, gifts, centerpieces, and other items. Your wedding shuttle has plenty of room for everything!
Of course, having everyone traveling together to your wedding and reception venues provides great photo ops. Shoot photos of the happy couple celebrating with friends and family. Your videographer can capture the arrival and departures of friends and family riding with you. They can capture impromptu speeches or the entire wedding party singing along to a classic sing-along song like, Friends in Low Places. Chances are the memories made in your wedding shuttle will be some of the highlights of your big day!
