Wedding Wednesday: Tranportation

With just a little under 7 months to go before the big day, Chris and I have all but one of our major contracts signed, all that is left is transportation.

The reason that the OCD part of me has yet to nail this part down is largely due to the fact that I have absolutely no idea what I want.

The church and venue that we picked are about 45 minutes apart (I was very picky when it came to my venue site, and nothing close to Chris's family church was working for me, so we had to look elsewhere), so there is no doubt that we NEED something to get us from point A to point B.

When we initially got engaged, this was my FOR SURE method of transportation

....until we booked our venue, and Chris nicely informed me that horses don't travel well on highways.

Then I was convinced that I wanted something like this

so that Chris and I could have some alone, down time (the very little that we will get that day from what I hear) in between the ceremony and reception sites.

If this was the plan, I would also book a limo to make sure that my entire bridal party had safe transportation both to the venue, and to the hotel after the reception.

Sounds like a good plan right? So why am I even bothering talking about it? Well because when I was at the bridal show last November I met with a limo company who was offering this

for about half the price of what we would pay for the car and the limo.

This wouldn't have been an option except for the fact that my loving sister (and MOH) dragged me onto one, and I actually kind of fell in love. It's like a mini club inside, with a big screen T.V, music, lights and a fully loaded bar. Not to mention that it will comfortable seat 25 people. I have vision of the fantastically wild time that we could have with our entire bridal party on the way to our venue.

And of course the price doesn't hurt. Chris and I are all about saving money where this wedding is concerned.

So now I'm conflicted. Do I want the quiet ride with Chris, or do I want to party it up with some of the most important people in my life?

What did you do? Was the down time worth the extra money?

That limo is just so great!
I guess I would be really torn between the two options!
