Though arranging your wedding transport may not be right at the top of your to do list when you start planning your big day, it’s actually more important than you might think. The vehicle you select to take you to the ceremony will star in many of the photos and will help to set the tone for the event. One of the first personalised elements of the wedding your guests will see, it will help to give them an idea of the kind of celebration they’re in for. Like @BrideMag says, “You will automatically be the centre of attention on your wedding day and your guests will be itching to see you arrive… so make sure you do it in style!.”
Classic cars are a great option for couples who want a vehicle that’s stylish and that will look great in photos. There are lots of companies across the UK that provide beautiful classic cars for weddings. Make sure you choose a car that’s big enough for your dress and that’s easy to get in and out of in front of the cameras.
Camper vans are an increasingly popular option for couples who want to arrive in style at their wedding. Cute and colourful, classic campers have the added benefit of being big enough for your entire wedding party. Plus, if you want, you may even be able to use your rented camper to sleep in on your wedding night.
If you’re transporting your entire wedding party to the venue, or need a vehicle that can ferry your guests from the ceremony to the reception, a big red Routemaster bus is the perfect choice. However, if you do opt for a large vehicle, like a bus it’s important to ask the company you’re renting it from to come and check the access at your wedding venue, otherwise you could find your wedding party has to walk to the ceremony on the big day.
Horse drawn carriage
Another option is to ditch motorised transport altogether and opt for a more natural vehicle instead. A horse drawn carriage is a classic choice for a traditional wedding. A great option if the venue isn’t too far from where you’re getting ready, a carriage will look great in your photos and make your day feel like a real fairy tale. Make sure you ask about rain covers for the carriage in case the weather doesn’t play ball.
As the event that kickstarts your wedding day, your transportation is an important part of the event. Putting a bit of thought into selecting the right vehicle will ensure you get the choice just right. For more ideas and advice on planning an unforgettable wedding day, explore our site today.
