February marks a month dedicated to love, giving couples everywhere the chance to get engaged and begin their lives together. If you are in the midst of planning your wedding, or helping a friend plan theirs, you already know there are plenty of decisions to make. Each choice holds a consequence and gives the bride and groom to showcase their personal styles and vision.
While making decisions about centerpieces and bouquets are certainly important, they are not necessarily life or death choices. When a bride and groom choose transportation for their wedding party, a poor choice could hold more dangerous consequences.
Choosing transportation for the wedding party is a common practice for today’s couples. Not only does it ensure everyone involved with the wedding arrives where they need to be on time, group transportation also allows the wedding party to have a cocktail or two without worrying about driving later. As you choose your wedding transportation, remember to look for the following items in order to assure safety for your group.
First and foremost, any group transportation outlet should be able to provide proof of insurance. No matter if you are taking a trolly, limo, car, or boat – make sure the provider has current insurance that covers liability and any other issues if there is an accident. Your wedding party deserves to be protected.
Safe Driving Records
It is okay to ask the company how they ensure safe driving records by their drivers. Obviously, the drivers should have a license for the type of vehicle they will be driving on your wedding day, but they should also have a clean driving record from their personal driving time as well. You want to be sure you are getting in a vehicle driven by a responsible and serious driver.
Protect your financial investment by assuring your contract with the driving company contains the date and times of services, as well as the addresses and timeline of where/when they need to arrive or depart.
A wedding day vehicle accident is not the best way to start the rest of your lives together. Assure you are working with a reputable company that takes safety and insurance seriously.
