In today’s episode of Wedding Sushi, we hear about Brian Klimaski’s fascinating career path, and how he went from baseball in New Jersey, to nightclubs with rockstars in Vegas, to becoming the Sales Director for Missouri’s largest transportation company: JED www.jedlimousine.com
We touch on all of the Frequently Asked Questions that engaged couples typically ask during the booking process, PLUS very important aspects most people wouldn’t even think about.
When it comes to the vehicle of your choice, would you prefer perimeter seating? Or forward-facing seating?
Think about where you will need to be picked up from, and all of the stops along the way…. Do you want a limo or party bus to pick you up from home, to take you to your wedding location? Or do you only need transportation from your ceremony to the reception, with picture stops in between? Where will you be stopping to take photos? Have you created a travel timeline with your photographer?
are you local?
Have you selected a wedding venue that is in the St. Louis metro area? Or have you booked a venue that is further away? When you’re budgeting for your transportation, there may be travel fees involved.
need a restroom?
If you and your wedding party will be traveling for an extended period of time, have you considered choosing a vehicle that has restrooms? JED offers 19 different coaches/shuttles that offer this option.
how many people?
Let’s talk about capacity…. Who will be riding along? Wedding party, family, photographers…. Come up with a headcount so you know how many people you need to account for when looking at vehicle options.
Brian recommends building in extra buffer space for your wedding day. You do not want to be squished in like sardines, so choosing an option that has MORE room is always the best choice! For example, if you have 25 people riding along, book a coach or bus that can seat up to 35. You’ll appreciate the elbow room.
Some small towns have road restrictions due to vehicle height, width, and weight. Will you need to be traveling down tiny country roads? Ask your venue coordinator if they know about any road restrictions you should be aware of.
