Stretch LimousineHiring a Limousine for Weddings
This article has been written by Golden Gate Limosines.

Limo tips... from Golden Gate Limousines:

Why not hire the same limousine to pick up the guys and drop them at your service; then collect the girls and bring them to the service; then onto photos and then on to your reception - it will work out better value overall - how would the boys otherwise get to the service...Same limo can do the journey and then go back to get the girls etc etc.

When it comes to booking a professional wedding limousine service, book ASAP, as all the good / new / modern vehicles always get booked out first ... so the earlier the better - Dont wait.

Professional wedding limousines are better quality to a general limousine hire company. You should hire quality quality quality. The newer the better.

Hire costs begin at the time you ask the limousine to arrive at your initial pick up point ( eg your house or hotel ) and ends when you dismiss the limo - usually when you have arrived at your reception. This is your continuous exclusive hire time pack.

It is wiser to book the limousine at least 15 minutes earlier than you need, to allow for the time to have photos and be shown how to get in and out gracefully in your wedding dress, as well helping the bridesmaids etc & maybe some photos . No one needs the extra stress caused by inadequate time, so add an extra 15-30 minutes beyond the completion time at the end of the day.

As with everything on your wedding day, you only get one go at getting things right, so don't try to rush your hire times. It doesn't pay in the long run try to book a little extra time for the end of your hire time - Just in case.

Super stretch limousines are great - not only can they fit everyone in together for are a festive experience on wheels, but they usually work out a lot better value than a few smaller cars. When booking a super stretch that will sit 10 or more passengers, ask if they have a 5 Th. bridal door - These will make it a lot easier for the large group in formal attire to get in and out - The 5 Th. bridal door is a extra door that is on the passenger side of the limo half way along.

Don't take it for granted that what you see on the website is what you are actually booking. Ask. Some websites use pictures that are "for illustration purposes only" - Just ask them.

Check the different limousine service web sites' price list..this is the best place to start the planning. If you can't find a price list on the website, question their reason and look for another website that is upfront and has a price guide.

Two key details needed in the early stages of planning are your starting time and suburb and your finishing time and suburb...Once you have these basic details, book your vehicle ASAP.

Whatever the size of vehicle you intend to hire, try to allow for 2 seating spaces for the bride to ensure everyone's comfort as well as preventing the wedding dress from crushing.

Hire for weddings that are held off peak (other than Saturday afternoons) should be at a better price...Just ask when contacting your providers.

Make sure that your transport provider is a Transport Accredited Operator...If not, do not book with them.... Just ask them!
