You gotta fight... for your right... to party... (bus)

I'm going to be straight with you.  Not every aspect of wedding planning is all that fun.  Sure, there are awesome moments like finding a dress or picking colors, but then there are some nitty-gritty stuff that really just does not trip your trigger.  Thankfully, my tug-of-war with one of those menial, less-than-stellar tasks has come to an end.  I am claiming to be the victor, mostly because it's over. 

That's right, hive, I've secured wedding day transportation.  After evaluating our options, getting a large handful of quotes, getting indignant at the estimates we were receiving, re-working our request, receiving a second batch of quotes, second-guessing what we really needed out of our transportation, re-re-working our request, getting a final round of quotes, we're done.  Finally, finally done.  And here's what I have to show for that arduous process.

The bridal party will be making that long 1-mile trek from ceremony to reception in one of Johnstown's party buses!  Here's the thing, though.  I feel like I'm at risk of picking  up a communicable disease when I use the term "party bus."  It evokes images like this:

No thank you.  I don't think we need neon lights and crazy leather seating in broad daylight as we go from point A to only a little bit away from point A in small-town America.  Fortunately, one of Johnstown's bus companies has a much more relaxed definition of "party bus."

Not terribly party-tastic from the outside, right?  Here's an inside look at what makes puts the party in this party bus.

In case you couldn't tell, the party comes from the perimeter seating, as opposed to the traditional row seating that most buses have.  It's a small difference, but I hope it will help with everyone being able to hang out and talk as we scoot around for pictures between ceremony and reception.  Plus, now I'm not confined to any one seat size for me and my dress.  Double plus, it's air-conditioned, which was a big selling point, given how humid PA summers can be.

Sure, booking the transportation wasn't exactly a wedding task I had dreamed of as a small girl.  And sure, it kind of made me gnash my teeth as I compared quotes for the various permutations of transport sizes and rental durations.  But I have no doubt that once I hop onto that rockin' party bus shortly after I become Mrs. Snow Cone, surrounded by my closest friends and family, I won't have a care in the world.  As long as the A/C works.

Did you have a planning task that was less than exciting?  What transportation are you using?
