You’ve arranged a limo for the wedding party and a Rolls to ensure fantastic photos, but have you given any thought to how your guests will get to your wedding venue? Some venues are easy, particularly when the ceremony and reception are in one location with lots of parking on site. However, if you have booked a picturesque and remote venue that lacks space for parking, it can create real problems for your wedding guests, that’s where Coast to Hinterland Charters can help.
Making Life Easier for Your Guests
Most of us appreciate that weddings can be costly and that you may view transportation for your guests as simply another expense. However, there are some very sound reasons to give Coast to Hinterland Charters wedding transport serious consideration.
Everyone wants that picture-perfect Sunshine Coast wedding, but if your wedding venue is in a location with limited reliable public transport options, there is a high risk that guests unfamiliar with the area may get lost and very stressed trying to get there.
This may result in late arrivals, which could leave you with massive gaps in your wedding album when treasured friends and family miss photo opportunities or even the ceremony itself. You also need to think about parking arrangements. If there is limited, expensive, or no designated parking, this is another burden for your guests.
Fortunately, organising wedding transport need not be a logistical nightmare. If you have guests staying in accommodation in the area, you can create pick up and drop off points for your guest shuttle in an 11 seat or 13 seat minibus with driver.
You can include a copy of the schedule in your welcome bags or with confirmation cards. These days, you can email the schedule to your guests once they have confirmed they will be attending. This should include departure times from the reception, which older guests or those who have hired a babysitter, in particular, will appreciate.
If you have guests in the local area or are staying at other hotels, you can give options to park near a pick-up location to join your other guests for the journey. Coast to Hinterland Charters can assist you to create a transport schedule, and once it is finalised, you can pass the information along to your guests, letting them known when and where their wedding shuttle will depart.
Remember that your wedding transport is more than a simple Sunshine Coast airport shuttle service. Your guests can get into the celebratory mood as soon as they are picked up. You can arrange little details to set the tone for your big day, from having a wedding day playlist for your guests to enjoy through to offering refreshments.
If your budget cannot stretch to providing wedding transport for your guests, it is still important to think about how your guests will get to and from the venue. In addition to providing driving directions, why not ask guests if they would prefer to share the cost of wedding transport. You can get a free quote for the transport with various pick-up and drop off points and cost this out per guest. Many people will appreciate this option, so they don’t need to worry about getting lost or parking their car.
If they are staying in the local area, they can relax and be taken directly to the venue, knowing in advance that they have covered the cost. This eliminates the worry about out of hours taxi services costing a small fortune or getting stuck waiting for their transport to arrive when the reception is over.
