Planning your wedding day transport? We’re answering the most common wedding car hire questions today.
There are lots of things to think about when it comes to wedding cars. What style you should book, how many people you really need and the most important question of all – who rides with whom?
There is so much to consider when researching wedding care hire than just the cost. So here are our top 10 wedding car questions and answers.
Would you prefer a classic vintage car, a retro car like a VW Beatle or campervan, a new car like a Mercedes or something completely different like a horse-drawn carriage? Try and match your wedding transport to the theme of your wedding. So if you’re planning a London city wedding then you might want a London taxi to match. You might even be able to match the colour too!
Most couples book two or three wedding cars. But you could save money by booking one special car and several other ordinary taxis. Or scrap wedding care hire altogether and book one double-decker bus to do all journeys.
A great tip is to ask a friend or relative with a fancy car if they’d be willing to lend it to you for your wedding day. This way you could save hundreds on classic wedding car hire costs and they might even be your driver!
When booking your wedding cars, it’s worth checking how many seats each car has. For instance, that limo you love might seat 16 so you can fit your whole bridal party in. Whereas for the same cost, the cute sports car your groom likes the look of might seat only two. Remember – a successful marriage is all about compromise.
Let’s say your ceremony venue and reception venue are quite a distance apart. If most guests are staying at the reception venue or if there is limited parking at either venue, it makes sense to book a bus or coach to transport all your guests.
If you’re thinking of booking more than one vehicle with the same wedding transport company then it’s worth asking if they will do a discount – before you make the booking! It’s also worth getting quotes from a few companies and ask if your chosen one can beat some of the other prices.
Traditionally, the following bridal party travel together, but it’s really up to you who goes with whom:
It’s important to get all the details of your booking in writing from the company, detailing the date, times and cost. Check the small print, ask about their cancellation policy and if your wedding insurance will cover it – just in case.
You can decorate your wedding cars in whatever way you prefer. You could go the traditional way with a “Just Married” sign at the back, a car ribbon at the front, flowers inside…and don’t forget the champagne!
