Once you have secured a date with your chosen venue, transport and photographer should be at the top of your priority list. Booking your transport is just as important as the venue.
You should always try to go and see the vehicles yourself before you finalise anything. Websites and adverts can be misleading and you don’t want to be disappointed on the day when your wedding dress doesn’t allow you to sit comfortably in your dream wedding car.
It is common to spend a substantial amount of your budget on transport, especially if you choose to go with a classic car or a horse and carriage as they are very popular. They often take a lot of preparation and looking after. Most companies within this sort of business tend to build a fantastic reputation and will provide the ultimate quality service with all of the decorations for a reasonable cost.
Wedding transport is now becoming an important way for couples to show their personalities and their fun or classic style. You can’t often go wrong with a classic car such as a Bentley or a Rolls Royce. It may be a good idea to think about revealing your individuality with something a little more outgoing.
You need to consider who you have to get transport for. There is the bride and her father, the bridesmaids and possibly the bride’s mother and flower girls for the wedding ceremony. Afterwards the bride and groom tend to travel together to the reception venue. If the reception is in a separate location to the ceremony, this means that the father of the bride will travel with the rest of the wedding party meaning that you have to ensure that everyone can get to the next venue.
A popular choice for weddings now is the quirky Volkswagen Campervan. They are perfect for a couple with a little bit of adventure and individuality. There are plenty of companies out there that provide VW Campervans and VW Beetles with customisation to cater especially for weddings. They can be personalised with ribbons, flowers and opened out seating to allow for large dresses and more passengers.
A luxury limousine is the perfect choice when considering a larger dress or a larger party. It will add drama to your arrival and your guests won’t forget it. Other options that would provoke a reaction would be vehicles such as a Ferrari, classic mini or vintage double-decker bus. This is the perfect option if you are looking for that fairy tale wedding.
Another idea that is great for couples who love a weekend in the city is the classic London taxi. Many companies have options such as a white or even a pink London cab especially for weddings. They can add the perfect touch and show you off as a couple with something a little different.
