Alternatives to Limo?

I'm trying so super hard to stay within my budget for this wedding and I'd really love to cut the expense of hiring a limo to take the guys and my girls to the venue...we're doing the reception and ceremony at the same place, but we all still need a way to get to that place...any suggestions? Really really don't wanna hire a limo, they're way out of my budget range. Thanks!

    You can rent a nice Town Car or Cadillac for a lot cheaper than a limo.

    So I have 3 bridesmaids plus my parents, so probably 6 of us at one time. Then they'd have to go pick up my fiancee and his guys.

    Is there a separate company from a limo company that does that?

    Why not just have everyone drive themselves to the venue? I've never been in a wedding party where I didn't drive myself to the place where the ceremony took place.

    Why don't you give them all Uber or Lyft cards? Will be cheaper and they can just request the ride when they're ready.

    Look into Turo. It's a company/app that allows you to rent people's luxury cars for a day or however long you need it. And the rental prices are no where near expensive as a limo rental.

    Sure, Enterprise, Hertz, etc. There are lots and lots of rental car companies to choose from. If you aren't sure where to look, just google rental car companies near (your city), and you should get at least a few hits. Or check with your nearest major airport, there should be several attached to that.

    You may not find luxury cars at every company, but I'm sure some of them will have some nice vehicles for rent. Since you only need it for one day basically, it shouldn't be too costly, even for two or three cars.

    Our hotel is only about 5 minutes from the venue and there is a shuttle back after for our guests. I really really dont want to pay $300 for a limo that we really only need for 45 minutes so I'm thinking about doing an Uber XL. One trip for me and my parents, one for the bridesmaids, one for the groom and his parents, and one for the groomsmen. I don't need limo pics and we plan on getting to the venue before our guests so I really really don't need anything overly fancy.
