Chicago Wedding Day Transportation
Finding the perfect venue, cake tasting and dress shopping are some of the first wedding planning items that come to your mind. And why not? Checking these things off your list is fun and exciting.
What’s NOT fun and exciting? Realizing you forgot to book transportation for your wedding day.
Transportation is a hugely important aspect of your big day. How else are you going to get around? Plus, consider the fact that the bride and groom aren’t the only ones who will need transportation. Think about out-of-town guests flying into O’Hare, grandparents, etc.
