The most unforgettable time of the groom and the bride’s life is the wedding day. Everything should be perfect. One of the most important factor to consider is the mode of transport. Most people spend years before the wedding deciding on what type of car will take them to the wedding destination.
When choosing a classic wedding car before the wedding day it is important that review the reputation of the hire company. Check the rating of their Better Business Bureau. I advise choosing the car hire company with an “A” or an “A+”. Book the car that you want early to say one year before the planned wedding.
Choosing your Ideal Wedding Cars
The car that you choose to arrive and leave in, should be an eye catcher and impress the audience. Not only should you feel good entering and leaving it but it should also provide a great backdrop for your wedding photos. Furthermore, it should be the source of the most exciting moment for a couple.
Vintage Wedding Cars
The notion that the most elegant car to a wedding should be a limo or a luxury wedding car is misleading. You should be open minded. The choices available ranges from SUVs, classic cars, convertibles to offbeat muscle cars. If you are willing to make a statement with something quirky, then a vintage wedding car should be your choice. You can pick a vintage Volkswagen Beetle or a 1960s Ford Mustang. You can also go for a Corvette convertible depending on your choice. If you are also looking to make the 18th-century entrance, you can book a carriage.
Modern Wedding Cars
If you are looking for a modern wedding car, for instance, an exotic sports car there are endless choices that you can pick. You can go for a car such as Lamborghini Gallardo that is brightly colored or you can go for a British elegance themed entrance with a white Aston Martin.
Luxury Wedding Cars
In some cases, you might plan to travel with the bridal party. In such a case you need to consider a larger car such as an SUV. You can use luxury wedding cars such as Navigators or a brightly colored classic hummer among many other options. You can also use a bus with some added decoration.
Considering the Cost to Hire Wedding Cars
There are many factors that will determine the cost to hire a wedding car. First, what is your planned budget for this particular task? Make sure you work within your budget to prevent overspending on one area. Second, the type of car that you choose will determine the rental price.
Comparing the Cost
Generally, vintage cars are more costly than the modern wedding cars that are the recent models. Also, the luxurious wedding cars are less cheap than the vintage one. A vintage 1934 Rolls Royce will cost you about £550 while a single horse-drawn carriage will only cost you about £350.
Thinking about Time and Distance
Time and distance are also other factors to consider. The estimated time by most rental is three hours in which you will be picked and left at the entrance. Some rentals will rent you the car for the whole day. As a rule the longer the time the more the money. On distance, some companies will give you a maximum of 40 miles from their location and after each additional mileage, you add more money.
If you are looking to rent more cars, the cost will be higher. In most cases, hire companies will rent the vehicles as a package and in the process, they will factor in the discount. If you want to hire more than one car then discuss it with the vendors.
Wedding cars Decorations
After hiring a car it is also important to have it looking the occasion. The type of car and the color you choose can’t be changed during the wedding day. However, you can add some decorations with the help of your wedding planner. In most companies, the vendors will provide the ribbons and the bows that you to decorate your car. You can also ask the wedding planner to outsource for some more if they are not enough.
In some cases, the couple wishes to have a personalized number plate. Don’t remove add your preferred number plates before consulting. Ensure that you ask for permission for change of number plates from the car provider. The number plates will cost you extra at an estimated price of £ 19.
