How about offering your guests a caricature of themselves while they wait for you to arrive at the reception? This is a unique and fun item to give to the guests as a favor as well. They can have fun getting their picture drawn then have a way to remember your wedding forever afterwards.

Karaoke

Instead of having a professional DJ, why not consider letting your friends and family show of their own talents? Karaoke is a fun way to get everyone to loosen up and enjoy the evening as you celebrate your nuptials. Set up the karaoke and have a blast singing and listening to your friends and family sing the night away.

Carnival Games and Rides

Take your wedding reception to a whole new level with this unique idea. Consider a bounce house for adults as you feel like a kid again. Play cornhole in the yard or have rides set up from the carnival to enjoy. If your wedding is near a carnival or amusement park, you can make this a whole reception location while your guests make wonderful memories.

You want to arrive and depart in elegant style and have a way to enjoy the festivities of your day without worrying about a designated driver. A wedding limo service provider can give you exactly what you need for your wedding day events. There are a few things to keep in mind as you choose a vendor for this aspect of your day. Here are four questions to make sure you ask your wedding transportation provider.

Vehicle Insurance

Make sure the vehicle has the proper insurance on it for escorting you and your wedding party around for the day. You don’t want to worry about legal issues that may arise from them not having the proper coverage.

What about the drivers?

Are their drivers professionally trained to drive and operate the limo? You want to make sure that they are professional and know what they are doing before entrusting them for this very special occasion.

Back-up options

Cars do break down and although you may try to avoid it, things happen. Make sure you discuss with the vendor what their back-up options are in the event of a service issue with the vehicle.

Be sure of the agreement

Before you sign papers or pay anything towards this service, be sure you understand the ins and outs of the agreement between you and the limo company. Ask questions you may have upfront and do not wait until you’re already locked in. Be sure you are comfortable with the total cost, the back-up arrangements, and the vehicle that is reserved for you. You can truly enjoy your day when you are not having to worry about the transportation needs and can relax and take in every second of the day.
