There are so many things to think about when planning your big day. But while everything from the flowers to the table decorations will help you add your own personal touch to the proceedings, there are few elements that will have a greater impact than your choice of wedding car.
For most of your guests, the arrival of the wedding car will be their first glimpse of the bride-to-be, and such a special moment needs the sort of vehicle that dreams are made of. But with so many on the rental market, how can you choose the one that’s right for you?
First, it’s helpful to think about what’s important to you in a wedding car. For example, do you want the classic look and retro glamour of a vintage car? Or would you rather have something equipped with all the latest technology? Older vehicles are great for the happy couple and lend
an air of traditional romance to your day, while newer, luxury models tend to have options like state-of-the-art sound systems an on-board bars – ideal for getting the fun started with your whole wedding party.
Secondly, how big a vehicle do you need? Popular classic wedding cars such as a Rolls Royce or an Aston Martin can generally carry just four passengers, although something like a Daimler limousine will have room for up to seven. Conversely, many modern wedding cars can seat as many as 14 people – ideal if you’re a bride or groom with lots of friends and family to accommodate. Alternatively, a stylish two-seater sports car is a great choice for any couple that puts privacy at the top of their agenda.
Lastly, it’s important to consider the colour of your chosen vehicle, and how it fits into your general colour scheme. For example, those lemon yellow bridesmaid dresses might look fantastic alongside a black or white wedding car – but stand them against a red Ferrari and you’ll have a terrible clash on your hands. Similarly, brightly painted vehicles can add a welcome splash of colour to a largely monochrome wedding palette.
Follow these steps, and you’ll be well on your way to finding the perfect wedding car – and enjoying a day you’ll never forget.
