Getting married and having our reception in the same location has allowed us to avoid talking about wedding transportation during much of our planning. We've had a few short conversations about the logistics of getting things and people to Pippin Hill, the vineyard where we'll be getting married, but haven't really talked about making our getaway at the end of the night.
As the day gets closer, there's
more day dreaming about how all these plans will turn out and we've done
some talking about how we'll leave the vineyard when the party is
over. I've always been a fan of antique limousines and imagined myself
riding in a classic Rolls Royce. I'm not sure a fifteen minute, one way
trip would be worth a limo company's time.
option is to rent a classic sport car. Marc and I both love this
idea, but we're not too excited about driving it ourselves after our
reception. The photos would be charming, though, don't you think? When
I shared the classic sports car idea with my Maid of Honor, she offered
to drive the car for us and to take care of picking it up and returning
it. I thought that was so generous, but most of the sports cars we saw
had two seats.
My Day of Coordinator gave me a tip
that the owner of the sports car rental business in our area had a four
seater that he drove for another one of her couples. I emailed him
right away, but he's already busy on our wedding date. That would have
been too perfect if it had worked out.
decided to submit a quote request with one of the local limo companies
that has a classic Rolls that I love (it's navy blue!) and I'll see what
happens. I'm setting myself up for budget busting quote already.
Maybe, just maybe, there's a slight chance that having a Friday wedding
will finally work in our favor and there won't be a minimum? That's
probably wishful thinking.
What options did you consider for your getaway? How did you wind up making your exit after your wedding reception?
