Planning the logistics of your wedding can be tricky, especially if it involves guests finding their way from place to place. Providing transportation is such a huge help to put you and your guests at ease, and make sure no one misses a thing. Michael Jasser of MarcParc, one of the best D.C. transportation companies, is here to offer up his expertise on the topic…

Do you have any advice for couples when trying to decide how much transportation to provide for their guests?
Transportation is often the key to ensure smooth logistics for your special day. It is always easier to remove vehicles, than to have to add additional vehicles at the last minute. If you are unsure as to how many out of town guests will be taking shuttles from local hotels, our recommendation is to plan for the larger shuttles and you can always scale back as you get closer to the big day.
How far in advance is best to book transportation arrangements and valet?
Certain times of year (prom season in the Spring and gala season in the Fall) see limos, sedans and limo bus availability fill up very quickly. We recommend booking 6 – 9 months in advance for transportation needs and 3 – 6 months in advance for valet needs.
