Get Your Guests to the Church on Time:
Our Tips for Wedding Bus Hire

After months, maybe even years, of planning for your big day, you want to make every effort possible to ensure that your day goes according to plan. You may not be able to control the weather, what the Best Man speech is going to be like or what cringey dance moves happen on the dance-floor, but you can ensure that everyone gets to the event on time.

Introduction

While it might be fashionable for the bride to be late, you don’t want all of your guests showing up just as the bride is about to walk down the aisle!

It’s important to dilute as many stresses as possible which is why so many wedding parties are now utilizing the services of private charter bus companies to get the guests and bridal party to the church and reception on time and safely.

Here are a few tips to ensure that your wedding guests get to the church on time and that their journey is enjoyable, memorable and safe.

Don’t stress about your guests – hire a bus or coach and ensure everyone arrives on time.

Tip 1. Book Ahead of Time!

Wedding bus charters are becoming increasingly popular so it’s important that you make your reservations well in advance. Depending on the number of guests you expect and the location to which you are driving, you may need a specific vehicle or several vehicles.

If you’re having a rustic outback event, a mini bus hire might make more sense than a coach hire due to the terrain. On the other hand, perhaps you are getting married in central Sydney and there are 150 guests to transport, in which case you may need a bus hire company that can provide two coaches to combat city traffic. Many wedding bus hire companies have a limited fleet, so be sure to book early to avoid disappointment.

Tip 2. Plan your Route

One of the main reasons that wedding guests are late is due to either traffic congestion or getting lost. While you may not have a huge amount of control over the former, you can certainly control the latter.

Speak in detail with your bus charter company about the route, allow adequate time for stops and decide exactly where those stops will be. This will ensure that everything goes smoothly and to schedule on the day.

Tip 3. Organise a Playlist

With all of your guests on board, you can set the tone for the day with some atmospheric background music that will get your guests talking and in the mood for the festivities. Keep the music in tune with the theme of your day so that there is fluidity between each element of the event.

It’s also a good idea to download your playlist so you don’t run into any issues with internet coverage en route.

Tip 4. Snacks and Refreshments

Wedding days can be long so it’s important to stay hydrated and energized throughout the day no matter what the weather is like. However, if you’re having a summer wedding, it is even more important that you have plenty of water on board the wedding bus hire for your guests. You may choose to supply some light snacks too, just be sure not to have anything too messy that could end up ruining someone’s outfit!

Make sure your guests have enough water to stay hydrated (and perhaps a few snacks) during the bus ride to the venue.
