Your wedding day – one of the most memorable days of your life. Preparing to date has taken hours and hours of organizing and research. One aspect of this organization that is very often overlooked or left until the last minute is the wedding cars. This is traditionally the responsibility of the groom, but as is the case these days, the bride is often the one who actually organizes everything, usually with the help of her mother, sister, or friends. This is a good thing too, since most grooms don’t know or understand how important the wedding cars are to the bride.
How do you know exactly what you need for wedding car rental and transportation?
First, how many cars or even larger means of transport do you need? Think about the trip and who needs to be in the cars. The bridesmaid, flower girl, bellboy, and the mothers and fathers of the bride and groom. Oh, and don’t forget the groom himself with the best man. This will help in deciding the number and type of cars needed.
It is traditional for the bride and her father to travel in the main wedding car, but for budget reasons, many brides choose to rent a larger car, such as a stretch limo, that can be used to transport the bride, her father, and the bridesmaids’ flowers for the girls same cost as a smaller, more traditional car like a Rolls Royce or Beauford. Very often the cost of renting a stretch limo is good value for money.
The size of the car needs to be considered when thinking about the wedding dress as well, as you need to make sure that your and your dress will fit comfortably in the car, especially if there is a long train on the dress as well. If you have luggage or large bags, be sure to ask a relative to bring them with you or ask the venue if you can drop them off by taxi the day before to make sure the venue has a safe place to keep them.
Remember to ask the wedding car company if they have the right insurance, not just regular car insurance, but also liability insurance to avoid accidents at church or registry office and you need to make sure that the rental company is not in a hurry has to attend another wedding after your wedding. Call wedding car rental 2 weeks in advance to make sure everything is still on track.
You may also need to hire a trainer if your venue is far from your ceremony location or if it is difficult for your guest to get there.
Not only are your wedding cars intended for the transportation of the bride and groom etc, they are an important part of your day and will be included in your photography as well. So it’s important to know that this transportation is just as important as the dress.
So remember to book the cars early as they are often booked out very quickly. Use a reputable company, attend a wedding forum near you and ask others for their recommendations, but most importantly, do everything beforehand and then sit back and enjoy the ride!
