Are you planning a wedding and considering using a trolley for your transportation needs? A trolley is a great choice for a wedding because it adds a touch of charm and sophistication to your big day. Plus, it's a practical solution for transporting guests from one location to another.
Here are some tips on how to plan the best itinerary for your trolley wedding transportation:
Plan with time
Planning is key to making sure your wedding transportation goes smoothly. Contact your trolley provider in advance and discuss your plans with them. This will help them figure out the best route to take and the number of vehicles needed to transport all your guests.
Exact locations and addresses
Make sure you provide the exact locations and addresses of where all your guests need to be picked up and dropped off. This could include bridesmaids getting ready at one location, groomsmen at another location, and guests staying at different hotels. Your trolley provider can help you plan the best route to pick up everyone and transport them to the wedding venue.
It's essential to let your trolley provider know what time your ceremony starts. They can advise you on when to start the transportation and how long it will take to transport everyone. We always recommend starting the transportation 1.5 to 1 hour before any call time to make sure that everyone arrives on time. Remember, it's better to be early than late.
When planning for your trolley transportation, don't forget to assign a place or parking for the trolley or the vehicle you are renting. Having a designated spot for the vehicle near the door of your venue, church, or hotel will make it easier and faster for the driver to pick up the guests. Make sure to communicate with your venue and let them know about the vehicle that you will be renting for transportation to make a space for you. To avoid the driver searching for parking somewhere else and wasting more time, it's best to plan ahead.
