In between the wedding ceremony and reception, many wedding parties take a spin in a limousine or limo coach. While this can be nothing more than a functional way to get from the ceremony site to the reception, the limo ride has the potential to be one of the most memorable occasions of the wedding day.


Bring a camera on the limo. Chances are, your photographer is  not riding in the limo with you. They are probably meeting you at the photo shoot locations. If this is the case, make sure to designate someone on board the limo as your limo ride photographer. Some of my favorite wedding pictures were taken by one of my bridesmaids onboard the limo.
Do something crazy and memorable  during the limo ride.  This is your day and want to remember it with something fun or super romantic. One client made their first stop on the limo ride at a local Wendy’s. Some of the bridesmaids and groomsmen got out of the limo and purchased a mountain of chicken nuggets, French fries, and sandwiches. Do something fun and crazy while you are on your limo ride – within reason, of course. Stop at a downtown area and walk along the streets, run through your college campus, or make a stop at your favorite boystown bar. It’s always fun for bystanders to see a wedding party having a good time!
