Choosing Your Wedding Car


Your wedding is one of the most special days of your life, and you deserve to splurge on a stylish mode of transport to and from the venue.  A beautiful chauffeured wedding car looks wonderful in photos and can add that extra dash of glamour to the event.  By hiring the right type of vehicle, you can also take away the stress of parking at the church and reception venue, and be confident that a responsible, professional driver will get you wedding on time.

With so much choice, how do you decide what is the best wedding car for you?  Below are some helpful hints when it comes to choosing the perfect transport for your wedding day, so you can ensure your choice makes you feel extra special.

What is Your Budget?

Before you can start researching different types of transportation in depth, you will need to ascertain what your budget is.  If it is relatively small, you may wish to spend your money on an elegant bridal car, and let the groom and best man travel in a taxi to the venue, after all, it is the bride’s day, and she is the one that everyone will be waiting to see.  Once you are both husband and wife, you can travel in the bridal car together, use it in the photographs and to transport you both to the reception.

What will the Theme of Your Wedding Be?

If your theme is a rustic wedding held in a barn, then a vintage tractor may be a unique way to turn up to the venue and fit in with the overall theme of the day.  However, if you are going for the classic ‘church, then onto a country club for an elegant reception’ kind of day, then you cannot go wrong with a classic, vintage car, driven by an immaculate, beautifully mannered driver.

How Many Cars do you Require?

If your budget stretches to more than a bridal car, you may want to arrange stylish transport for the groom and his best man, the Mother of the Bride and the bridesmaids.  Again, a big advantage of having chauffeur driven wedding cars is you know that everyone will get to the church and reception, on time and in comfort.  The last thing you want on your wedding day is the hassles of parking or waiting for taxis.

Questions to Ask

When you make enquiries about booking transport for your wedding day, be sure to ask the following questions:

  • Are the wedding cars you want available for use on your wedding date?
  •  What would happen in the event of a breakdown?
  •  How long is use of the wedding hire vehicle in possession of the bride and groom?
  •  Will the car remain at the wedding venue until after the ceremony?
  •  Are there additional charges for running over time?
  •  If required are decorations provided for the wedding car?
  • Are little extras such as champagne provided?

Our tip

If you are going to drive to various locations for photographs, make sure you pack a picnic and some bubbly for the bridal party, once the nerves that occur prior to the actual ceremony subside, everyone is likely to be suddenly ravenous.

Whatever the theme of your wedding day, the wedding car of your dreams will only add to the charm and specialness of the occasion.  Do not rush the decision, and make sure you hire your wedding car from a company that knows how to make a wedding the most wonderful day of your life.
