With all of the organising and planning behind you, your wedding day should be a time to relax
and enjoy the celebration with family and friends. However, with so many last minute panics and
problems, that’s sadly often not the case.
While we can’t do much about drunken uncles or crying bridesmaids, we can help you with one
thing - how to ensure that your travel runs smoothly on your wedding day.

wedding cars, and making sure that everyone gets into the right vehicles on time? Armed with a
passenger list and contact numbers for the whole party, helpers can make a formidable weapon
in the fight against wedding day stress!
