Transportation...it seems so easy, so simple, yet in reality it is much more difficult! As I posted in an earlier post, Fiance and I have our car, a vintage Rolls Royce. Now its trying to figure out everyone else's transportation.
We are getting married at a church in Georgetown, this causes some logistics as it is, as I'm sure most of you know it is nearly impossible to find a parking space in Georgetown on a Saturday. We have been told by the church we can have the police block off SOME of the street, but in all actuality this will probably only be enough room for the Limo ( for the bridal party) and the vintage car.
With this in mind Fiance and I are trying to figure out what we need for transportation. Most likely we will be getting a Van of some sorts ( also looking into a trolley) to transport guests from the hotel to the church ( I will post more on our finds later). Then we are left with busing them after the reception..back to the hotel? on a brief tour of the city? There is a two hour gap between the end of the ceremony and the cocktail hour...what are some of the other brides doing? do you have a gap? if so what are you having your guests do in that time? One of the hotels we are thinking of getting a block of rooms at is in walking distance to the reception site, so that would solve some logistics.
Then for transportation of the parents/grandparents we were thinking of renting them a town car, since its hard for the grandparents to walk and as a special thank you to our families, but we aren't sure of this yet either.
Then our get-away mobile. The cost of holding on to the vintage car for the 5 hours of the reception is a tad ridiculous, so we are thinking of everything from a horse and carriage to a good ol' fashion taxi...I would love to hear what other DC brides have done!
