Wedding transport is just one of the many facets of organising the perfect wedding and it’s one that, when done right, can leave a lasting impression not just on the bride and groom, but also their esteemed guests. Arriving to the ceremony in style will strike a real chord with everyone present and set the tone perfectly for the biggest day of your life.
Before you blindly ring the wedding transport provider for a Rolls-Royce, though, you’ll need to carefully plan the specifics. You’ll probably hire a wedding car not just for the bride and groom, but also their parents and the wedding party. That will probably require three vehicles, although numbers can obviously vary. What about the size of the wedding car? If the bride has a long, flowing dress, she’ll need a larger vehicle to avoid it being crumpled by the time she gets to the ceremony. Another factor that everyone will face is that of budget – maybe you just can’t afford a top-of-the-range car, no matter how much you’d love one for your wedding.
All these constraints can make the booking of wedding transport seem like a nuisance, but it is well worth it for several reasons. Aside from the significant lure of travelling in a luxury vehicle, any car you hire from a wedding transport rental provider will be immaculately maintained and is also likely to be spacious enough to cater for long dresses. Plus, your chauffeur will treat you like royalty and will have an expert knowledge of the routes you’re looking to travel, meaning that they’ll quite possibly have some excellent time-saving tricks up their sleeve.
The first thing to know about booking wedding transport
The first thing to know about booking wedding transport is that it needs to be done early, as in at least six months before the big day. If your wedding clashes with prom season in May or June, change this to nine months. On the wedding day, it’s essential to allow for worst case scenarios. That means calculating your estimated journey time and adding 20-30 minutes to it in case of reasonably foreseeable hitches such as roadworks or traffic.
