    Wedding Party Bus

    Alright fanatics I am in need of some help. My buddy is getting hitched next summer and has started planning some of the important things for the wedding...the party bus. Anyone have some good suggestions or is there anyone out there who you can rent an old converted CyRide from? Thanks in advance for the help!

    Re: Wedding Party Bus

    My wife went with American Party Bus in Johnston for her sister's bachelorette party; says the staff and drivers were excellent! Word of the (now) wise on party buses; make sure you have enough people. The wife got a party bus for 25.....only 10 showed up and six rode the bus (the other four just followed it, but still paid). Guess who wound up footing the bill for those that didn't show up?

    Re: Wedding Party Bus

    I'm confused, is the party bus for the wedding or the bachelor party? Because if it's for the wedding...classy.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking. I have never known a bride to willingly have a bus as transportation except once. That was her parents ragbrai bus.

    Re: Wedding Party Bus

    Are you two from Iowa? Almost every wedding I have ever been in, including my own, had a party bus, trolley, or limo. Limos are the worst because they are such a pain to get in and out of.

    A bus will have room for more people so nobody has to pick up a bridesmaid's date at their hotel after waiting a half hour for him because he got lost last weekend.

    Re: Wedding Party Bus

    My buddy got married up in Charles City. There is a bus rental place up there that lets you spray paint the bus before the wedding. After ever wedding they just paint it white again. Our bus had flames. It actually looked less trashy than you think.

    Re: Wedding Party Bus

    We used a bus for our wedding transportation and had a lot of compliments on it. I highly recommend it. It was actually cheaper than a limo, and keeps a bunch of people from drinking and driving.

    If it is for a bachelor or bachelorette party, I have thought about renting out my tailgating bus. Feel free to message me and I can send you pictures.

    Re: Wedding Party Bus

    It's for the wedding. In our neck of the woods it's very common and we usually bar hop on the way to the reception hall. Limos usually don't work as well because they don't fit near as many people or coolers.

    Thank you to those who have actually contributed to the thread.

    Re: Wedding Party Bus

    I would make sure to get one with a driver. Been in situations where a parent/family or wedding party member was driving and it seemed like they were kind of expected to take care of all the people who couldn't take care of themselves or the crap the girls were carrying around.
