If you have chosen to have your romantic wedding in Barbados, then you will need to plan how you are going to arrive at your wedding ceremony. Therefore we have looked at various options of how you can travel on your special day.
The most popular choice for both local and visiting brides is to hire a limousine as it gives you plenty of room to spread out. The average length of a limousine is 27 feet; so this ensures even the longest train on your dress will still looking stunning when you walk down the aisle!
You can also book a limousine to carry six, eight, ten or even fourteen people; so no matter how many bridesmaids you have; you can all still travel together with plenty of room.
It is also an ideal way for a group of wedding guests to travel to and from a wedding. While sipping on ice cold champagne from the bar and taking in the scenic view of Barbados in the privacy of the limousine, you can arrive in a celebratory mood for the wedding in Barbados.
It is also a very romantic option for after your nuptials, when you and your new spouse can have a few moments alone sipping champagne and anticipating the rest of your lives together.
You may think that hiring a limousine is an expensive option, however you may be surprised to learn that the cost of limousine is usually around $85USD per hour, which includes drinks and you get on average a 15% discount on trips of over 3 hours in length.
You may even decide to hire a limousine before the big day and celebrate you stag or hen party by splashing out and arriving everywhere for your last night of freedom in style.
Maybe you won’t have many people in your wedding party and would like something on a smaller scale, in which case you could hire an executive car complete with driver for your wedding. Again the costs need not be prohibitive; the majority of quality car hire companies in Barbados can provide an executive car and will usually negotiate a rate if you are hiring another car for the duration of your stay on the island.
Maybe you have a few wedding guests coming to Barbados for the event, in which case you can negotiate a really good deal with a car rental company if you are hiring a number of cars for your entire stay. Just make sure that you book the cars well in advance to ensure availability on a block booking. Car rentlas cost about $50US per day as a rough guide.
