Who is the bride supposed to travel with in the car?
On the way to the wedding, the bride usually travels with her father or someone close, that is walking down her down the aisle. On the way to the reception, she travels with her new partner.
How many cars should we hire for the wedding party?
This depends on the size of your bridal party. The groom and groomsmen usually arrive at the ceremony early so they can hire a car also, or if the venue isn’t far, the one hire car could take the groomsmen first then go and pick up the bridesmaids. Whatever you decide on, make sure that there are enough vehicles to transport all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen to your photo location & the reception. Many of our Classic & Vintage cars can seat from 6 to 10 people, making it a more cost effective option than hiring multiple cars.
Should we hire vehicles to transport family members to the wedding?
The father of the bride will probably be in the car with the bride, but it’s up to you whether or not you want to hire additional cars to transport other family members. Our Wedding Cars can also supply Luxury Sedans, minivans and/or coaches so you can ensure that family members and out-of-town guests are looked after and will get home safely after the reception.
When should we book the vehicles?
This depends on type of vehicle that you are wanting, and the date of your wedding. Our Classic & Vintage cars are often booked out between one and two years in advance, so it is important to start looking for a wedding vehicle as soon as you have set a date. The modern Stretch Limousines & Luxury Sedans are more readily available. The peak times for weddings is March to June & September to November, but the earlier you book, the more choices you have and it is just one thing less you have to worry about during the planning months ahead. Our Wedding Cars can offer you a payment plan to help with your budgeting.
Should the car remain at the venue during the ceremony?
If you want to guarantee that you will have a way to the photo location and reception, it is a good idea to make sure that the driver waits at, or near, the ceremony venue. Some hire companies book multiple weddings on the same day and don’t allow for emergency situations. The last thing you want is to find that your driver has disappeared to pick up another couple, only to have broken down along the way, leaving you stranded at the ceremony venue. Our Wedding Cars only ever book one wedding per car & driver on the day.
