It’s hard to decide on the right wedding vendors for your ceremony in the Tampa area! Here are five common mistakes that couples make when they book transportation for their wedding. Keeping this information in mind as you come to a decision about this important wedding vendor will ensure that you choose the best company for your specific needs.

1. Not viewing the vehicle before booking

We know, you’re feeling busier than ever as you plan your wedding. It’s important to make the time to check out the Tampa limo and party bus fleet of the company you’re interested in. You’ll learn more about the company, the actual size of the vehicle, and the realistic condition that it is in compared to the photos on their website. Without doing this, you’re opening yourself up to a lot of risk!

2. Booking with the first company instead of doing research

You want to get your wedding planned as soon as possible, but make sure you’re doing a good amount of research before putting your trust and money into a businesses hands. It’s important to get a feel for what vehicles are out there, the different wedding packages that companies offer, and understanding what is a standard price for a limousine or party bus rental. Don’t blindly place your trust into the first company you come across, because that could spell out disaster.

3. Failure to view or completely understand the terms of the contract

Reading the fine print is important when you’re hiring a wedding vendor. You want to be sure you aren’t surprised with any fees or charges that you weren’t expecting on your wedding day. Be sure you’re getting a clear understanding of the terms, otherwise you could be surprised by different fees and charges on the big day.

4. Hiring a transportation provider who is unfamiliar with the venue

Every wedding venue has a unique set of circumstances when it comes to parking, picking up, and dropping off a group of passengers. If you make the mistake of hiring somebody who has not been to your venue, you could end up arriving late to your own wedding! You’re paying each of your wedding vendors by the hour, so this is the last thing you want to happen.

5. Booking a vehicle that is too small

It’s understandable to want to save money on your wedding transportation, but make sure you don’t sacrifice your comfort in the process. You will have a much more enjoyable experience if you have room to move around and socialize with your wedding party. This is also something to consider if you plan on inviting your photographer or videographer on board!
