It’s the eternal wedding debate… one of you wants to arrive at the venue in an elegant, vintage vehicle, while the other is dreaming of the sleek lines and powerful engine of the latest sports car. So how do you decide between the two? Luckily, it’s not just about the aesthetics – there are practical considerations that can help lead you in the right direction.
In order to make the best choice, you need to look at the pros and cons of both options. So let’s look at vintage cars first. With their classic good looks, romantic appearance and elegant interiors, older model vehicles like Rolls Royces and Bentleys are a popular choice of wedding car. And in many ways, they live up to the hype. You’ll definitely feel like a million dollars on board one of these charming vehicles, and they’re sure to make a beautiful backdrop to your special day.
However, classic cars have their limitations too. For example, they often have little power behind them, and might struggle with particularly hilly or difficult terrain. Plus, there’s a higher chance that they could break down – leaving you stranded en route to the biggest day of your life.
Another consideration is what you want in the way of technology. If your idea of the perfect ride to your wedding is relaxing with a glass of bubbly in hand, chatting while some soft music plays in the background, then a vintage vehicle could be just what you’re looking for. But if you’re the
sort of person who wants a state-of-the-art sound system and plenty of gadgets on board, you’re better off looking at a more modern option.
While they are a more unusual choice, modern wedding cars can be just as glamorous as their vintage counterparts – although they won’t give off the same traditional vibe. But what they lack in old-school charm they more than make up for in effortless cool, and your guests are sure to be impressed if you arrive in the latest Ferrari or Porsche model. And with the latest luxury vehicles, you’ll need to worry far less about any mechanical failings.
However, it’s worth noting that modern wedding cars are often less roomy than classic ones – although if space is a consideration you could always opt for a ‘stretch’ version of your favourite car. As you can see, there are pros and cons to each option – so take some time to weigh them up and decide which one is right for your big day.
