It is now a tradition for brides and grooms to have a bachelor and bachelorette party before their wedding. Renting a limousine is a great and fun way of celebrating your last unmarried days with your friends.
You don’t even have to leave the limo since there are party buses equipped with amenities like pools, hot tubs, bar stations, sound systems, and even separate rooms. And the most important is that everybody will get their home safe, no matter how wild the party may get.

Arriving at the ceremony in a chauffeured limousine will make your entrance elegant and classy. Your appearance will be memorable. Furthermore, it is also a great way to leave the venue after a long and exciting, but also an exhausting day. Taking off to a honeymoon? The limousine can give the newlyweds a shuttle to the airport right after the wedding.

Renting a limousine for the wedding is a sure way to get to your ceremony safely and right on time. It is also a stress-free when you don’t have to drive a car after you drank a couple of cocktails. You can relax and enjoy your party to the fullest.
d) Limousines are Cost-effective
Even though limousines represent luxury, high class, and style, they are wrongfully considered expensive. In the present, there is a wide selection of limos and limo companies which rent cars specially designed for weddings that are pretty much affordable.
Moreover, a feature that differentiates limousines from regular cars is a greater number of seats. This means that other people like a best man, a maid of honor, or bridesmaids and groomsmen can accompany the wedding couple in their ride to the ceremony. Not to mention that transporting that many people all at once instead of everybody going in individual cars can be eco-friendly.
e) Photo shooting
We are living in a digital and in the most visual of all ages. Social media, especially Instagram, urge us to take photos of each and every event that happens in our lives. A wedding day is certainly one of the most important events and every couple expects perfect photos from their wedding. Pre-wedding photo shooting of the bride and groom is a trend.
It primarily requires an excellent photographer, but also a venue and accessories. A charming white old-timer, as is a Mercedes limousine, would make a lovely and romantic shooting background. On the other side, a red Volkswagen Beetle would make you feel bold and exotic and such would be your photographs!

2. Wedding Limousine – Dos
First, you have to choose an appropriate vehicle. This depends on the theme of your wedding and your budget. Do you want it to be modern and luxurious, or you rather opt for a more traditional and retro look?
Once you pick your perfect ride, make sure you ask the limo company for permission to decorate their car. Weddings are already expensive and you don’t want any additional charges and unpleasant surprises.
So, what to use to decorate your wedding limousine?
- Traditional floral and greenery wraths or garlands are classy and elegant, and can also be rustic if you are more for a boho wedding.
- If a white limo is your choice, decorate it with pastel colors of bows and ribbons. This will give it a romantic touch. Or you can use a bright red ribbon and wrap it like a gift! Best fabrics to use are tulle and satin.
- Nothing says ‘celebration’ better than the colorful and celebratory balloons.
- Old-school tin cans or anything that makes noise. Before this became a tradition, it was a custom to tie shoes to the wedding carriage. It originates from the 5th century when people used to throw shoes at the bride and groom as a way to grant them luck. Tying of baby shoes was supposed to symbolize the wish for fertility.
- Scribble “Just Married” on a window of a limousine using liquid chalk, white shoe polish, or soap. They are easily removable and won’t damage the car paint or window tint. You can also use window stickers or hang a “Just Married” sign or banner.
- Instead of writing directly on the car with materials that could potentially damage the car, you can opt for mirror frame clings. They can be personalized in a variety of ways to get your message across. They can show off your and your spouse’s initials or names and wedding date.
- Use Pom Poms to pretty it up. It can be girly and playful.
- Tie some streamers onto the side-view mirrors, door handles or to the back of the bumper.
- Break out the bunting for a vintage look.
- Personalize the license plates.
3. Wedding limo – Don’ts
Though there are many different ways and accessories you can use to decorate your wedding limousine, there are some that are out of the question:
• Spray paint, dye, markers, anything that is not easy to remove. This is particularly forbidden during summers because the dye could transfer to the surface of the limo and cause damage.
• Tape on windows leaves behind a sticky residue that is difficult to get off. It can also damage the tint is applied on the inner side of the window.
• Sugary substances – Products that contain sugar, like whipped cream, should never be used. Sugar is sticky and extremely bad for car’s paint.
• Tin cans – Though we mentioned them above as a traditional way of decorating the wedding car, you must be careful because they can damage the tires, and can even spark against the pavement.
