5 Problems in Hiring a Cheap Limos and Car Service for a Wedding

Your wedding is supposed to be the most precious day of your life. You don’t want to deal with hassles and headaches and while family and friends might be taking care of those inevitable last minute ‘whoops’s,’ if you hire a cheap car service for the limo for the bride and groom, you could end up having to deal with some of those problems first hand. Ensure a perfect day for yourself and your spouse. Hiring a Town Car service is certainly going to be more affordable than a stretch limo, Hummer limo, or something more extravagant like that, but going ‘cheap’ can lead to some problems. Consider these before you commit to the wrong company. An old, uncomfortable limo. An older limo isn’t going to be as comfortable as you deserve. It also might not be that clean. Rude chauffeurs. A chauffeur who only sees what he does as a job might come across as rude. You deserve to be treated like a princess, queen, or king on your wedding day. How about being treated like a celebrity?

I got a call to come in for a last-minute reservation, and I jumped on it. What can I say? I’m married to my job. (A little wedding humor for you there.) A bride and her divas-in-waiting were doing just that—waiting on the side of the road. See, the bride’s friend’s brother’s mom knew some guy who had a couple of his own limousines, and they decided to hire him instead of going with a quality DC limo service. (Who has limousines just sitting around? What a weirdo.) Unfortunately, said guy forgot to mention that the limousines were mismatched, and one was a poorly-kept Cadillac from 1980 that made it about four blocks before breaking down. I shudder to think what would have happened if we hadn’t had a cancellation that day. TIP 1: Reserve your DC limo service about six months before your wedding. What if we hadn’t had any limousines...
