If you’re getting married soon, we know you have plenty on your mind, from food to family to flower arrangements. No matter the size, length, or formality of your wedding day, this special occasion is one you’ll cherish for the rest of your life!

Have you planned out your wedding transportation yet? If you’re planning to rent a wedding party bus or stretch limousine, you’ll be sure to make awesome memories. But which one is right for you? If you need advice on how to decide between a limousine and a party bus to travel in style to your reception or to take you to your big night on the town after you tie the knot, keep reading to find out the pros and cons of each — and which might be just right for you and your wedding party.

Count Your Crew

The first thing to do before renting a limo or party bus for your wedding day is to count the number of people you’ll be transporting. If your wedding party is on the larger side, you’re better off making sure there’s plenty of room, so you might want to rent a party bus. As a general rule, if you have more than eight people to transport, you’ll need more than one limousine — so plan accordingly, especially if you’ll be bringing any luggage.

Because a party bus offers ample space for mingling, partying, and socializing, it can also be perfect for bachelorette parties — so don’t be surprised if one of your wedding party members starts getting inspiration for their own pre-wedding party (or birthday party!) while having a blast on your bus!

Partying or Preparing?

If you love dancing like nobody (or everybody)’s watching, party bus rentals are the superior choice for your wedding transportation since you’ll have plenty of space to cut loose and show off your moves. If you prefer your wedding transportation to have space for intimate small-group conversation or want a place to relax before your special event, a limousine may be more your style. Will you be enjoying cocktails, wine, or beer? Don’t worry about this part of the equation when deciding between a limo and party bus because no matter what you choose, a reliable designated driver will get everyone to their destination safe and sound. 

Determine Driving Distance

If you’re traveling a short distance from the wedding venue to the reception venue, a limousine may be just the ticket for a brief but luxurious touch of white-glove glamor. While it’s always fun to hop on a party bus, you won’t have much time for dancing if you’re only traveling a mile or two! Consider a fleet of limousines instead on your big day.

Modern Matrimony or Classic Ceremony?

When it comes to a classic entrance to a fairytale wedding, a limousine is second only to a horse and carriage (except limousines don’t eat hay or poop at your wedding venue)! Meanwhile, many modern ceremonies remix traditional wedding elements, creating something totally unique. If you’re a free spirit and a nontraditionalist, a party bus is a great choice for you, especially if you have a lot of opinions on the music, food, and drinks your guests will enjoy on the way to the reception or after-party.
