Not everybody wants to stick to the normal rules. Some are more daring and creative and may decide that to hire a bus for their wedding is an interesting way to have fun – and even maybe impress some of their guests and family members.
When you decide to break away from tradition in terms of the wedding car, it is possible that you may want the whole event, the whole day, to be different from traditional weddings. Hiring a bus may actually make it possible to have bride and groom and their guests together for quite some time before the ceremony.
Depending on how long you want to hire the bus for you may be able to drive around together before the ceremony and enjoy some city sights, or if you’re in a rural environment, the scenery of the countryside.
To really make the most of your wedding bus hire you can then all drive together to the church and afterwards to the venue where the reception is held. The driver waits for the guests and afterwards takes them back to the pre-arranged destination, most likely the same spot where he had met them earlier.
To find a bus for your purposes you may have to go to a little bit of trouble since a bus is one of the more unusual modes of transport to get the bridal couple to the church. One could consult the local press. You may even have to look further afield than your own region when you want to book a wedding bus for hire.
However, trustworthy companies who find wedding vehicles for couples may also be able to assist. When you need to get hold of one of these companies you may find that because these buses are more unusual as wedding transport, there are not so many of them available. You may have to book your bus well ahead of the wedding day.
Hiring companies that specialise in unusual cars and vehicles may be the ones to turn to for assistance. You find them in newspapers, but also on the internet where most of them advertise.
Let them advise you about availability and seating arrangements when you enquire about a wedding bus for hire. They should tell you in advance how many guests can travel on it and for how many hours before and during your ceremony the bus will be available so that you can plan accordingly.
Also find out whether it is a double decker bus or a single and whether the top comes off in order for bride, groom and guests to enjoy themselves to the max on this unusual wedding vehicle.
Travelling in one of these will be a real treat for everybody involved since it is so unusual. Of course such a bus may not be all that cheap to hire, but considering it may carry 50 or more occupants it may well be worth it if your budget allows you to do it.
A wedding bus hire service will have strict rules that should be honoured. If, for instance, you want to serve drinks and snacks on board you have to clear that first with the firm you are hiring the vehicle from. Also, is it possible to play loud music on the bus, for example, and will you be allowed to decorate the bus in the colours of your choice? Assume nothing and find out all relevant details before you board the bus.
Make sure all practical issues have been attended to, such as where to meet the bus and the driver: at your home, guest house or hotel if you’re from out of town, or at a depot or at some other spot as had been arranged before the day.
Whatever your reason for wanting to make use of a wedding bus hire service, you can be sure your guests will love you for it and remember the day fondly.
