You have your venue, your dress and your bridesmaids… but how will you get there!
Choosing your wedding car is also very important – you need to consider more than just something to get you from A to B.
Firstly – consider your theme. Traditional ceremony and you may want a classic or vintage car. Summer wedding you may consider something with an open top? Fairytale brides may go for a horse and carriage. But there’s no need to stop there. With converted VW camper vans available, double decker buses, hummers, even a bike and side car the choice really is yours!
Secondly, who is it for – just the bride and the father or the bridal party – are you wanting the groom collected? If you aren’t staying or don’t live close to the wedding venue – the size of the vehicle and the cost needs to be considered. If you live close perhaps one car could do several trips, or could you have a special car for you and something similar but cheaper for the rest of the bridal party. This is when your double deckers and VW campers can be useful!
Thirdly – your dress! Ideally have some idea of the style of the dress before you pick your car – larger vehicles tend not to be so much of an issue. However sleek low lying sports cars may not be the best option for a figure hugging fishtale gown, similarly a cute 1930’s car may not suit a hugely layered ball gown. You want to look graceful getting in and out and feel comfortable on the journey!
Locally here are a few businesses that could help with your wedding cars – a variety of options and to suit a range of budgets!
