Spacious, luxurious and ideal for the thoroughly modern wedding, limos provide not only stylish transport, but have lots of room inside for a sizeable dress. If there is a large bridal party, a limousine may be a solution worth investigating.
As with all wedding cars, inspection is essential.
Be sure to ask what the driver will be wearing on the day – will he be uniformed and if so will it match your theme and dress?
Also ask what alternative arrangements would be available should your chosen vehicle break down on the day. Be sure to check exactly what is included in the price, e.g. ribbons, champagne, and also whether the time spent waiting during the ceremony is inclusive – you don’t want your driver hurrying off to another wedding during your ceremony.
Confirm all booking details in writing, stating the pick-up times and the addresses of the bride’s home, the ceremony venue and the reception venue.
Classic cars epitomise old school glamour, style and luxury and are the perfect compliment to a vintage themed wedding, but you do not have to have a period themed wedding to enjoy a vintage or classic wedding car.
As with all wedding cars, inspection is essential. If it is a convertible, make sure you see what kind of roof it has and make sure that it is in good condition when in position. Choose a reputable vintage car company and again, make sure they give a suitably reassuring response when you ask what happens if the car breaks down on the way to the ceremony.
Busses are a great way to transport a lot of guests from one location to the next, however, you could extend your hire, and have a novelty bus pick you and your bridesmaids up from home and take you to your wedding venue or church for a bit of fun. There are several styles of busses to hire these days, from traditional red double decker busses to vintage style busses.
