Planning a wedding can feel like a full-time job in itself. There are so many decisions to make—from selecting a venue to finalizing the guest list to picking out floral arrangements. But don’t forget about arranging wedding transportation! In addition to hiring a professional driver and limousine for you and your partner, you may need to charter a private bus for your guests.

How Far Ahead Should We Book a Wedding Charter Bus?

The sooner, the better. Of course, you’ll need to finalize your wedding date before you can arrange for limos and charter buses. You and your significant other will also need to determine the locations first. Figure out where the wedding ceremony will be and where the reception is to be held. Finalize the guest list and the number of people in the wedding party. Once you have this information, you can contact the wedding transportation company to make plans. Ideally, you should aim to book transportation for about six months in advance.

Should We Book a Minibus or a Regular Size Bus?

The transportation company will explain your fleet options. You may need to choose between booking a 34-seat minibus and a 55/56-seat passenger bus. You can generally expect both choices to offer similar luxury amenities, like comfortable, reclining seats and entertainment systems. The larger bus should include a restroom, which is something your guests may prefer if there is a long ride between the ceremony venue and the reception site.

Is There Another Option for Transporting the Wedding Party?

If you have just a few too many guests to fit on one or two buses, and you don’t want to rent another bus, you could consider transporting the wedding party separately. Talk to the transportation company about booking a luxury SUV or sedan. If need be, the bride’s and groom’s attendants can ride in separate vehicles.
