The cake is ordered, the guest list is complete, and all the decorations have been ordered. You seem to have everything on your wedding checklist completed, however something might be missing – have you ordered a wedding party bus?
The Benefits of a Wedding Bus Rental
You may be thinking “Why should I rent a bus for my wedding?” The answer is why wouldn’t you? Bus rentals are the ideal thing for a wedding.
With a wedding party bus your bridal party will not have to worry about transportation for the wedding or reception afterwards. Consider the comfort that you and your party will have for the day with a classy bus shuttling you all around.
Rental buses come with a variety of amenities. These amenities could include sound systems to play your playlist, refrigerators to keep your beverages cold, restrooms in case of any emergency and many other unique features depending upon the rental company.
Choose to Ride in Style
Nothing says wedding like a limo ride, however limos can be a little cliché. Instead, a bus rental for your celebration will set you apart from others and will exponentially turn up the party level.
Wedding buses are often decked out in extreme fashion so you won’t need to worry about your party style since the bus will practically say it all for you.
Pricing and Booking Tips
Unlike your cake, rental bus prices are not sugar coated. If you want style you need to pay for it and sometimes rental prices can get expensive. Remember though, that this is your special day and you will be more likely remember the amazing time you had rather than the money you spent.
Depending on time and location of your bus rental you should expect to pay $185/hour (and up) for a good bus rental. Most companies also require that you rent the bus for at least 3 to 4 hours minimum. Instead of paying per hour for your bus you should consider contracting one for an entire day this way you get a full day price, which usually works out to be less expensive per hour.
Plan to book your rental at least six months in advance especially in high-demand months, like April to July, as these are prime months for events, especially weddings.
It is wise to meet with the rental company in person and pick out your rental bus on site. This way you know what kind of bus you are getting for the cost, you will also be able to check out the available features on the bus, and you will have reassurance that you are getting your money’s worth.
