How to Get Your Wedding Party Where They Need to Be

If you are planning a wedding with multiple venues, such as a church for the ceremony and a different reception location, you’ll need to plan transportation. While the guests can be expected to make their own way from one place to another, you will need to make arrangements for the wedding party.


It’s common for the bride to make a grand entrance at the ceremony location. Whether this is in a luxury car or a horse-drawn carriage, the bride will generally travel with either her father, her mother, or her maid of honor, or more than one of the above if space allows. The rest of the bridesmaids should be given transportation to the ceremony in one or two additional cars. They might want to drive themselves, but don’t assume they will.

After the ceremony, the bride and groom will go together in one vehicle, often the one the bride rode to the ceremony in. The rest of the bridal party, including the bridesmaids and groomsmen, should be given transportation. This can be in cars, carriages, or even a school bus!

Whatever you choose for your bridal party’s transportation, make sure they know what they will need to do in advance. Plan your transportation well in advance, and confirm with everyone where they need to be, and how you would like them to get there.
