Custom Coach & Limo wants to share the most important moment in every loving couple's life: their wedding day. And this is the reason why we are suggesting that you hire a mini bus rental in New York City from us for your wedding.


There are other things that we want to share with you as far as planning your wedding is concerned. We have already advised you to first get your marriage license. Once that is done, you can get married in the next 60 days. So what else should prospective brides and grooms do to make their NYC wedding a lot less stressful?


Plan well ahead of time.


Planning a wedding can be a hassle for everybody anywhere in the country. But that is especially true in New York City. Your dream venue is a place that everyone else will be considering, so if you want to get your venue you might need to book it weeks or months in advance. There are also a lot of things to take care of, so if you want every detail of your wedding to be perfect, then you need to give it more time.


There is really no need for you to do everything in a short span of time. You have 60 days from the issuance of your marriage license to get married anywhere in the state. But you can start researching for wedding photographer, venues, wedding ideas, wedding gowns, and other stuff way before getting your marriage license.


Time your wedding right.


New York City is the top destination for both domestic and international travelers in the United States. That means that during peak travel seasons, there will always be a problem with crowds. That means extra hassles for you even if your venue is not a public one. Christmas, Thanksgiving and other holidays are sure to have many tourists and even residents will be out on the streets for one reason or another. That means the traffic is heavier and it will be much more difficult to control the crowds.


This is especially if you have a venue that is open to the public. Central Park, for instance, is a lovely place to have a wedding. But you might have problems with people wandering in during the ceremony or adding the tourists to your guest lists. If you want a park setting for your wedding, find quieter parks, such as the Upper West Side's Riverside Park.


Or you can always look for a much quieter time for your wedding. April to June is a great time to have a wedding in NYC because the tourists are not that voluminous. Another great time of the year is September to November, where the fall foliage makes your wedding photos look even more surreal.


No matter when your wedding is, you can rely on Custom Coach & Limo to provide you with the mini bus rental in New York City you need to make sure that you and your guests have more fun on your wedding day!

Segueing into the honeymoon.


For most couples, they do not only go to New York City for the wedding itself, but they also stay for the honeymoon. If you are planning to stay in the Big Apple for your honeymoon, then do check out the many hotels who have a package for both the wedding and the honeymoon phase. For example, the New York Palace is a great venue for your wedding, with its elegant backdrops and service. They also offer a honeymoon package, which allows you to enjoy spa treatments, chocolate dipped strawberries and just about everything in between. You can also check out the packages of the Conrad Hotel.


That means that you can readily start your honeymoon as soon as the ceremony ends or when people have left the reception venue for home. And sometimes, getting a package means that you end up paying less. So research for these packages very well!
