In order for your wedding to be an absolute success,
it’s essential that you are attentive towards
every small detail that goes into planning your big
day. You could choose to have your wedding ceremony
at home itself; a rented venue, at a church, or even
organize a destination wedding. As such, once you have
planned your guest list, it is important that you strive
to make their experience as joyful as yours. This is
even more important when you are expecting out of station
and foreign guests at the wedding ceremony and the wedding
reception. This includes family members and friends
who are paying a visit after a very long time. It is
obvious that your outstation guests are going to experience
great difficulty in finding the wedding location and
in fact, even your house.
In case you choose to put up certain guests at a hotel,
then you can talk with the hotel management regarding
transportation arrangements. This includes a shuttle

choose to drive down, and you are unable to receive
them, the hotel can still send a vehicle and have your
guests drive back behind them. The hotel can also be

by yourself if you have more than one vehicle at home.

car to reduce car rental expenses. Once you have a schedule
in place and know when your guests are arriving or where
they need to be picked up from, you could arrange for
Destination weddings require special planning, with
transportation contributing to a fair share of the budget.
You can either arrange for all the transportation or
part of it. Destination weddings are a great concept
but require greater planning and an eye for details
to ensure that the ceremony materializes just as you
had planned. It is advisable to check with at least
a few travel agencies that offer package tours to the
destination of your choice. Special wedding discounts
can also be availed of if a large group is traveling.
When sending out guest invitations, you could include
a separate transportation card in the invitation itself.
This could direct all the guests to the wedding venue.
The card could mention directions and landmarks, and
information regarding any public transport that might
be available. Others could include information regarding
all transportation arrangements that have been made
for the guests.
When making transport arrangements for your wedding
ceremony, it does not include only the guests. You need
to make arrangements for transporting music equipment
and the band, decorations, the wedding cake, wedding
flowers, crockery, furniture and other accessories that
might be need. Some of these transportation responsibilities
may be carried out by the suppliers and organizers but
need due supervision.
