One major decision that will be made in the planning of your wedding day will be your mode of transport. After all, you want the moment you arrive and leave the ceremony to be unforgettable. If you don’t know where to start or don’t know that much about cars and just need a little guidance to help you find the perfect car, carry on reading for our 6 top tips you should consider when picking out your ride.
Finding the Right Company
It’s best to find a company that will listen to all your needs and provide a realistic timeframe. Find local wedding car hire services to see which caters to all your needs and carry on from there. To avoid disappointment, see if they offer backups, just in case anything was to happen to the car on your wedding day.
If you and your partner see a car you like, book it immediately. Wedding cars can be booked up to a year in advance, especially on popular weekends and during the summer. If you and your partner have your hearts set on a certain car, it’s best you book it in good time, this will help avoid any sort of disappointment.
Decide What Theme You Are Working With
When getting married, some people choose to have a theme – these will vary from modern to traditional, vintage to novelty. Most people will pick a vehicle based on the theme, but still reflects their personality.
Consider Your Wedding Dress
When picking your wedding car, make sure you’re thinking practically. Yes, you want the perfect car that reflects yours and your partners style, personality as well as match the theme of your wedding but there’s no point picking a beautiful two seat Ferrari if your wedding dress won’t fit. If you have a certain car in mind it’s best to pick your wedding dress around that and vice versa.
Consider the Weather
This may seem obvious but you must take extra care when it comes to protecting yourself from the elements. Sometimes the weather can change unexpectedly and you need to be prepared. If you have your heart set on an open top car why not pick a soft top convertible? This will give you a second option if the weather took a turn for the worst. There are other simpler measures you can take, ask whether your wedding car hire company provides large umbrellas to protect you from the wind or rain – there’s nothing worse than having your hair and makeup ruined on your wedding day.
Size Does Matter
When choosing your ride, it is important to know how many people exactly you will be travelling with. Traditionally the bride will arrive with her parents and leave with her husband but in upcoming trends, the bridal party arrives together. The number of passengers will help you determine the size of your car and how many you may want to hire.
