We have compiled a list of some of our most frequently asked questions and advice to consider regarding wedding limousine and party bus services. We hope this FAQ can help make sure that your big day goes off without a hitch. If you require any other advice or have questions about wedding limousine transportation please feel free to reach out to our customer service department at anytime.
Book in Advance:
Most weddings take place on the weekend. During the Summer months almost every wedding venue has an event booked on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Limousine and Party Bus services will always be at a premium during these times.
To guarantee that you will have access to your perfect limousine we suggest booking your wedding transportation as soon as your venue and dates have been confirmed.
You will be able to negotiate better deals for limousine transportation and event venues during weekdays and less popular times.
Different Limousine Options:
There are so many different and exotic options outside the standard white stretch limousine! We find many of our clients prefer SUV limousines because they offer a more comfortable passenger cabin area.
Vintage limousines are hugely popular these days and add a classy unique touch to every wedding. Ritz has two of the most popular vintage wedding limousine options including a 1938 Buick and 1939 classic Cadillac. These vehicles have lots of passenger cabin space and leg-room, unlike the Rolls Royce.
The Bridal Party:
There are no rules about having to provide transportation to your bridesmaids and groomsmen… But they are working hard for you today! It doesn’t take much effort to include a limousine that can safely transport the entire wedding party from place to place.
Ritz Limousines has vehicles designed to handle every groups transportation requirements from 1-30 passengers.
If you have lots of out of town guests coming to your wedding consider renting limousine or party bus to make sure they get back to their hotels or other accommodations safely after the reception.
Again there are many options to transport small or large numbers of guests efficiently and at a much more affordable rate than using other services like taxis.
Wedding limousine service is supposed to be extra special! If you have a certain decoration style, dress code, music selection or other requests we can make it happen! Just let our service department know before hand.
This is one of the reasons that separate Ritz from all other wedding limo operators. We go the extra mile to accommodate special requests and take every detail into account.
For safety reasons some decorations cannot be accepted. It is important to discuss your dream wedding transportation with our knowledgeable staff so you know exactly what to expect.
Most weddings take place on a few Saturdays over the summer months. We are very busy during these Saturdays. Therefore we normally will not rent out our limousines for less than the 3 hour minimum for Saturday weddings.
Our wedding limousine packages start at 3-hour time bookings and can be extend to any required duration of time.
Our private sedan rentals start at $75 per hour (3 hour minimum).
Ritz Limousines shops our competition so we know that our wedding limousine rates are always highly competitive.
Rates and Taxes:
Rates vary based on the vehicle selected. All services are subject to both PST and GST.
