3-4 months before your wedding date is enough time to book your wedding day transportation. Before making an appointment to visit a transportation company, you should have an idea of:
• How many passengers will be in the vehicle?
• How much you’re willing to spend.
• What type of car you want.
• What colour you car you want.
• All the locations that you’ll need pick-ups and drop-offs.
• The times for these pick-ups and drop-offs.

• Is there a discount is more them one vehicle is booked?
• Is there a discount if you book you stag and stagette vehicles with the same company?
