Wedding vs Social event…What’s the Difference?
Why should you hire a chauffeur that has specifically trained in wedding day events? Most chauffeurs, if they are trained at all, would receive warnings aka training for survival from wild birthday parties passengers or rowdy concert goers. But at Brentwood, we specifically train chauffeurs in how to prepare for, drive for and specifically deliver a wedding day experience.
Because some chauffeurs understand the demands of brides and grooms and some have no idea. Those who desire to understand and be a part of our client’s wedding celebration are invested in and trained because it allows us to deliver that unforgettable wedding day experience we promise.
The difference between a wedding-trained chauffeur and a social-trained chauffeur might be the five-star wedding experience versus just an ordinary experience.
Yeah, the car may be the same, but the experience delivered by the chauffeur could be drastically different.
Your social-trained chauffeur drives you to the photography spot but isn’t sure where the closest drop point is for “the walking bridge” that your photographer said to meet him at so you spend valuable minutes upset, confused and walking a mile before you walk down the aisle!
A wedding trained chauffeur, who knows the destinations and the locations in the city that are most frequently used by wedding photographers. He’s familiar with where to park so you don’t get your dress dirty walking across a long field or hurt your ankle trying to navigate uneven surfaces. He makes sure to allow for plenty of time to get you there in case of sudden unexpected traffic or emergencies.
The difference? Mindset, experience, and training. A wedding-trained chauffeur prepares for a wedding event differently. They allow for more time before the event because they know it’s not an event you can’t repeat. A wedding-trained chauffeur is clued into exactly what the bride and groom need and want, hopefully before they even ask. For example: does the bride want decorations? A wedding-trained chauffeur already knows what decorations he needs (like a red carpet, a “Just Married” heart, pom poms, or even custom decorations or custom napkins that need to be set up before the wedding).
Not only that but the entire Brentwood team is trained to handle weddings differently. There are different policies and procedures that surround a wedding reservation because we know this is an event that can’t be repeated. It’s a must to get it right the first time. For example, we allow more time and space around a wedding reservation than we do around a social or an airport trip. Based on our experience, we know as a company that despite our best efforts in planning, some events run their own course and could require more time. Some companies book as much work as possible on one limo (and it might even look possible on paper) like a dinner social event on the same car you booked for a 5-hour wedding and leave you in the lurch. Or they sir-charge you more for taking that half hour you needed because it is interfering with their plans! You don’t need that stress on your big day. So, while you may not have to buy extra time or even plan for it, at Brentwood we’ve already taken care of it for you so we can make sure that we can deliver the unforgettable wedding experience you deserve.
At the end of the day, the experience will be different if a chauffeur is not wedding-trained and experienced on a wedding event trip versus driving a limo for a birthday event. On the surface, it looks like the same type of experience in the same vehicle but the outcome and feeling of the passengers could be drastically different with a specialist servicing your special needs. We want you to have the best day possible and we’re going to make sure our chauffeurs, our staff, and our vehicles give you that feeling of value, the memorable service that will be worth that once-in-a-lifetime day.
