Your Wedding Day Transportation Checklist with Buster
You’ve got the venue, the dress, the DJ, and your vows. Do you know how everyone is getting from the hotel to your ceremony? How about after dancing the night away? Help prevent drinking and driving by providing safe transportation for your guests after the celebration. While you’re eager to cross another item off the planning checklist, don’t let this part overwhelm you! Here are tips on where to start and resources to ease the process.
1. The Basics Whether everyone will be coming from their homes, hotels, or a central meeting spot, be sure to set clear pickup spots and times and communicate that to all passengers. In addition to keeping passengers in the loop, having one point person within each group will help to bridge any communication gaps between driver and passengers. The buses are big, but they still need to find you and let you know they’re there!
2. Deciding on Vehicle Size and Shuttle Options Do you want a limo or party bus to bring your bridal party to the venue and then drive them around town for photos? Do you want all your guests traveling together in one large coach bus, or perhaps in sprinter vans to shuttle the group throughout a certain time frame? Is a nostalgic vibe part of the theme…yellow school bus, anyone? Knowing what style of vehicle you need and how many passengers you’d like to move in each vehicle at a time are key factors to have in mind before looking for options and pricing. If you want some suggestions, we’re here to help.
3. Getting Quotes The part of the event that feels like an afterthought can easily become an event all in itself. Calling operator after operator only to get wildly different quotes is an outdated system. And good luck actually getting a response back. With Buster, we already did that legwork for you. Just answer a few questions about your trip, and we’ll show you prices and vehicle options instantly. All of the operators have already been vetted by our team, so you can rest assured that you are in good hands. And gratuity is already included, so no need to carry a wad of cash that won’t fit in your purse/suit.
4. Communication Do you want the driver to meet at a certain corner? Do you need ample time to set up gift bags on the seats prior to passengers boarding? Do you want the vehicle shuttles to stagger their departure times? The more clear the requests are before the day of the trip, the more likely it will be a smooth ride. Do you have a wedding coordinator who you’d like to be the day-of contact? Let us know! We’ll also let you know your driver’s name and phone number for any last minute details.
A little prep work goes a long way, and these steps are sure to cut your transportation booking time in half. Time better spent actually enjoying your wedding day!
Congrats on this exciting time, and let’s get you to that “I Do”!
