A bump in the road!
When the fiancee and I decided on Magnolia Plantation we were thrilled that our new venue fee was substantially less than our original venue.
With the money saved we planned to provide transportation and also rent a tent for the evening.
I found Absolutely Charleston online and fell in love with their trolley's, one dates back to 1923! So cool!
I asked for a quote on renting 2 of their trolley's. Both the bridesmaids and groomsmen would take these out to the plantation early for pictures (how cute would the pictures on the way to Magnolia be?) and then they would return to pick up guests.
Perfect, right!? Well the quote was almost the amount we are paying for our venue. Although we'd still come in below the amount we were going to be paying for Bridgeside, it just seems ridiculous to us (maybe a little more to P than me).
I desperately want to use them! I think it would only enhance the whole experience, but am I being ridiculous?
I contacted another transportation company this morning that rents those big tour buses. If they are a MUCH better deal it may be smarter to go with this company.
What do you all think?
