Final question!! Where did a getaway car land in your list of budget priorities? Is it an integral part of your ideal photography shot list?

Is a nice ride home a 'need to have' or 'nice to have' element for you? 馃殫

    Nice to have and not needed for us. We're staying until the end of our reception and post-party plans are TBD and based on who still has energy at that point (we have an evening ceremony and reception)!

    Not wanted/needed for me. We have a shuttle bus for drunkies, but if that wasn't the case I would just assign someone to drive us Smiley laugh

    Nice to have. We aren't doing a grand exit so it's not really needed for us.

    We鈥檙e just driving home in our car, a fancy car is another expense that鈥檚 easy to cut from the budget. Nice to have.

    Need to have! For me personally I have dreamed of having a classic white Rolls for my wedding. We will be driving around a lot that day (pictures, ceremony, reception, hotel) and it will look so pretty to have it parked out in front of the church and to take pictures with it.

    Not needed! We are staying in a mansion on our venue's property, so no transportation required

    Nice to have. My fiance is a mechanic and is really into old cars. Part of me wants to get a car and surprise him with it at the end of the reception, but honestly, we'll probably just end up getting a rid home from someone.

    Nice to have. Our ceremony and reception were in the same location so it didn't make sense for us.

    Nice to have. Any vehicle really will work, so it's not really an added expense, unless you don't already own a vehicle.
