T stands for Transportation
As a planner and coordinator, I find that many couples overlook the importance of transportation on their wedding planning task list. It is actually a practical matter; you both don't want to drive to the ceremony and deal with two cars at evening's end. The fun part is deciding what kind of car best suits your style and the theme of your Big Day!
When considering transportation for your wedding party and out of town guests you can consider everything from a cable car to a luxury coach. One of my Bay Area group transportation favorites? Black Tie Transportation in Pleasanton. A great team of professionals--customer service agents who you'll work with to establish service and their drivers of course!
Whether ordering a limo or "coach" or a trolley car through Classic Cable Cars, either company will ask you for the estimated number of passengers you'll need to transport, as well as, the pick-up and drop-off locations. You'll want to ensure you know the minimum contract hours--most are 4 hours. When you get the contract you'll see a section titled PAX, that's transportation lingo for the number of passengers. Luxury vehicles, including vintage ones, can often be rented for a 2-hour minimum, SF Bay Area couples might consider utilizing DriveVinty, they have a good selection of chauffeur driven vintage car choices.
Have a favorite vehicle, but don't want to spend money to rent one? Be inspired by the photo below, certainly do-able for the DIY couple.
Yes, despite all the commercial and residential building that continues in the Bay Area, you can still get horse drawn carriages too. This one for a wedding I coordinated at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga.
Are you thinking of eloping during the summer or early Fall months? Then I'd highly recommend you consider a yacht charter through Passage Nautical. You can arrange embarkation points at either Jack London Square or Point Richmond.
I hope this post has left you feeling inspired.
