What goes on in the limousine? If you're a bride and groom, the possibilities are endless depending on what size or type limo you choose. Your limousine can be a convenient car service assisting you in getting from place to place in comfort, or it can be more of a party on wheels. Read on for a look at what happens in the limo.

Limousine Package

Most basic packages include a limousine large enough to seat the bride and groom comfortably. In the limo you'll usually find a bottle of champagne and two to four glasses to toast the joyous event. There's also a radio, compact disc player, television and DVD player. Many basic packages now include satellite radio. While the price includes the limousine driver, the gratuity is extra and expected. To not tip the driver would be a major breech of etiquette.

Who Rides in the Limo?

The answer to this question depends, of course, on the budget. First and foremost, the bride and groom ride in the limo. In many instances, the limousine driver will pick up the bride and her father from her home and bring her to the church or wedding ceremony venue. If there is time, he can go afterwards to pick up the groom and those who will be riding with him. There's really no set rule of etiquette over who gets to ride in the limo. The bride and the groom can elect to have family and bridal party members come along for the ride.

If the wedding ceremony and reception are being held in different venues, the bride and groom ride together in the limo. In many instances, they will stop first for photographs. If a larger vehicle is in service, members of the wedding party and even the parents of the groom can ride in the limo. Many couples choose to rent Hummer, SUV or bus limousines in order to accommodate a large party.

Bells and Whistles

Many extras are available in the limo depending on the generosity of the host. In fact, the larger the limo, the more "party-like" the ride from point A to point B can become. Those who hire a Hummer, SUV or bus limousine might find themselves being availed of the following:

  • Open bar
  • Neon flashing lights
  • Karaoke machine
  • Satellite radio
  • Compact disc player
  • DVD player
  • Mini kitchen
  • Snacks
  • Dance floor

For More Information

For more information about what can be found in the limousine, meet with the head or a representative of the limousine company. Find out what "extras" are part of the package and what will cost extra. Many of the above mentioned bells and whistles are available for a price, though some, such as champagne, are complimentary.Make sure to have a list of everything you expect to find in the limousine along with the price of each "extra." This should be signed by a representative of the limousine company. You'll most likely have to sign a contract and put down a deposit. You'll also have to pay the balance prior to the big day.

As you can see, the time spent in the limousine can be relaxing or party like depending on your taste. It's your day, the sky's the limit!
