What to Consider When Choosing a Chauffeur for Your Wedding Day
You’ve looked over everything on your wedding preparation checklist and even marked each item twice. There are so many important details to consider, you want to make sure that not even one gets overlooked in all the pre-wedding chaos. You’ve no doubt included reserving a wedding limo rental in your plans, but how do you know if you’ve chosen the best service for your big day?
While all wedding limo services make big promises, not all of them follow through and meet your expectations. Since the day of your wedding is too important to leave to chance, here’s a few ways of knowing that your limo service and chauffeur are professional and will keep your safety and comfort as their number one priorities.
Are They Credible?
This is one of the very first things you should investigate before signing on the dotted line of a wedding limo service provider. You are perfectly within your right to ask questions directly to the limo service about their safety standards, driving records and if their drivers carry any certifications.
Also, do your own research online. While many businesses have one or two negative reviews, what you really want to look at is the overall quality of the reviews and notice if any reports have been made regarding their safety practices. Pay close attention to what other guests have had to say, and if you feel an issue in a review is important, don’t hesitate to ask the service how they handled or would handle such a situation.
Finally, ask if it’s possible to speak directly to the chauffeur who will oversee your transportation while in the limo. Get a feel for their people skills, ask for credentials -including how long they’ve been driving in the area. The last thing you want on your wedding day is to lag behind due to a driver being unfamiliar with the area.
Are They Professional?
First impressions can tell you a lot, and the wedding limo service you choose should display nothing but professionalism from your very first introduction. They should also be comfortable answering your questions regarding their driver’s professionalism while on the job.
Ask if they guarantee that their drivers will arrive on time, and what is the protocol should a driver miss the scheduled arrival time. It’s also acceptable to confirm what the chauffeur’s attire will be and the extent of the services they perform.
For example, a chauffeur that assists a bride in exiting the limo might get caught in a picture or two, so you want to make sure that they’re dressed for the part.
If you have any elderly or physically limited guests who will be riding in the limo, confirm that the driver will be comfortable helping them in and out of the vehicle and if there are any legal limits to how much assistance they’re allowed to provide.
Are They Accommodating?
Your wedding transportation is major element of your big day. It’s important that the chauffeur that will oversee your transportation be willing to go the extra mile to make your wedding extra special. If you have any special requests, bring them up before the day of your reservation and talk them over with your chauffeur. The best limo companies are always willing to go above and beyond to make your wedding even more memorable.
