This week we spoke with Nicole from Premier, who gave us the inside scoop on wedding transportation.
Q: What does Premier Transportation specialize in?
A: We specialize in chauffeured Transportation Services for weddings, events, corporate meetings and business travelers.
Q: What makes Premier Transportation stand out in terms of wedding transportation options couples have in the Twin Cities area?
A: Premier has been in business for 30 years providing safe, reliable, and professional transportation services for Minnesota weddings. We have a fleet of 50 vehicles that can accommodate wedding groups of all sizes. Whether you need wedding party transportation for 20 people or shuttling 500+ guests to a venue, Premier can assist.
Q: When did Premier Transportation begin?
A: 1988. Premier will celebrate its 30th year anniversary next year.
Q: What do you love about working with brides and wedding parties?
A: Brides today are extremely detail orientated. Once they get past the stress of wedding planning and let love take over, their positive energy is contagious. For many brides, this is their dream day and it’s fun to be a part of that dream day in even the littlest way. Wedding parties are just fun in general because everyone is celebrating love, happiness, and great friendships.
Q: What’s an average (wedding) day Premier Transportation like?
A: Typically weddings are Saturdays and transportation services are needed in the midmorning to late afternoon hours. Chauffeurs come to do pre-check inspections on the vehicle. The vehicles are also detailed onsite by our detail staff, prepped and stocked for the wedding party needs.
Q: What would you want a couple in the wedding planning process to know about wedding transportation?
A: Don’t make transportation the last item on your wedding “to do” checklist. Similar to most hospitality industries, there is a busy or high-demand time and a slow season for wedding transportation. If you are interested in specialty vehicles like a 26 passenger limo bus during popular wedding months like the spring and summer you may have to call 6 months to 12 months in advance to secure the vehicle.
Q: How far in advance should a wedding party book their transportation?
A: It depends on if your needs include specialty vehicles that are in high demand and during a busy season. If you don’t need specialty vehicles and just need passenger vans or mini-coaches for shuttling, you do not have to book as far in advance. I would recommend 6 to 12 months in advance for specialty vehicles and 1-2 for shuttling vehicles.
Q: What are some of the options you have for wedding parties, depending on their size/style, etc?
A: Premier has limos and limo buses that seat up to 26 people for wedding parties and bachelor/bachelorette parties. We also have Mercedes Sprinter Vans, Mini Coaches, and Motor coaches that are perfect for shuttling guests from hotels to venues and back.
