Thought about wedding transport yet?
Horse-drawn carriages might look romantic but they are slow and if it’s windy your hair will get messed up. Plus, horses don’t exactly follow wedding etiquette. Brides and poop are not a match made in heaven.
Classic cars and wedding transport go hand-in-hand. Rolls Royce, Bentley, Daimler, Austin Martin, Jaguar and Mercedes are all traditionally popular choices.
But what if you fancy doing things differently?
If Rollers and Bentleys don’t exactly suit your style, there are plenty of other wedding transport options. Brides and grooms have rocked up to ceremony venues around the world in everything from hot air balloons to tractors and by speedboat.
Weird and wonderful wedding transport isn’t everyone’s idea of bliss. If you want an alternative option but don’t fancy swooping down on your guests in a helicopter, what’s the solution?
Here are some cool wedding car hire ideas I’ve come across so far…
A VW lovebug or camper van makes a brilliant bridal carriage for a laid-back beach wedding. As does a quirky little wedding tuk tuk.
Classic American cars – check out Buicks, Cadillacs, Dodge Chargers, Hot Rods and Ford Mustangs.
A classic Limo is a beautiful thing! They don’t just come in stretch format in white or black. Check out my personal favourite – the 1957 Chevy Limo! It’s a beauty in pale blue and white. They don’t make limos like this anymore.
Wedding car hire is one area in which it’s easy to get carried away. I’m not just talking about budget. You may love the look of a classic car from the 30s but if you’ve got a contemporary wedding dress and are planning a modern wedding, it could look out of place. Keep your personality, theme and style in mind.
A final word about wedding transport – check for hidden costs. Price quotes should definitely include VAT, hire and chauffeur fees.
Oh, and don’t forget the groom! He needs to travel too.
