Let’s say you’re getting married at St. Mary’s of the Angels or St. Helen’s Church with a reception at Diamond Garden or Royalty East. You have a large group of groomsmen and bridesmaids and you don’t want all of them coming on their own for fear of getting lost or encountering Chicago land traffic. In summary, you want your wedding to be as stress-free as possible. This is why you may want to consider a Chicago wedding limo rental for the upcoming nuptials. And to make sure it goes smoothly, you want to ensure you have all questions answered before you decide.
Here are a few factors to consider. First, take a look at the company’s history. An organization like Athena Limousine Service may have a decade or more of service under its belt. This can mean turnaround of chauffeurs is minimal, and that equals experience in driving the streets of Chicago. You want a chauffeur who can get you to the church well ahead of time instead of one who can’t find his way around.
Second, take a look at their fleet of vehicles. They should be modern, clean, and filled with amenities to make the drive as pleasant as possible. See if they offer more than stretch limos in their fleet. Many companies now provide stretch SUVs and small shuttle buses for transport. Should your wedding party be considerably larger than average, an option for roomier transportation certainly helps in the decision process.
Third, get an idea of the chauffeurs. Like the vehicles, those who drive them should be clean, respectful, and know their way around the city. They need to be prompt for pickup, if not earlier than normal, and be ready for transportation from one venue to the other. If the company’s website doesn’t have testimonial information on these drivers look into places like Yelp for truthful reviews. You may also want to ask others you know who have used the company what they liked and disliked.
When you’ve reviewed everything and are ready to book, do so as soon as possible. Even if your wedding is in the dead of winter you may still have issues booking a limo service. Check the company’s website for their booking and cancellation options and if additional vehicles can be reserved if there are changes in plans. The only stress in your wedding should be saying “I Do,” so don’t wait until the last minute to get this most important piece of your special day in place.
