Things can get pretty hectic as the big date approaches. Having enough cars at your disposal is one of the major concerns at a wedding, which is why we have 10 car hire tips for a wedding so that your special day goes without a hitch.
Leave it to the pros
Reach out to a well-established, car rental company that rents out great cars for weddings and parties big and small. Choose a firm that knows the whereabouts well and has supplied wedding cars to many in the past.
Be realistic about the timing
Decide on the final route as soon as possible and check with the chauffeur to make sure he knows exactly where you want to go. Sometimes brides want to take a special route to the ceremony, and the newlyweds mostly like to go around for a ride afterward before the reception.
Just like the venue, wedding cars need to be pre-booked just as well. Because surely they would be avalanched with customers calling in to request their services. Especially in summer and on weekends.
Think about the distance and the number of people
It is important that you think about where the venue is, where the pickup points are and how many people would actually be in those cars. For example, the number of bridesmaids, best men, maid of honour, and the number of flower girls, page boys, close friends, and immediate family.
Go for an older model
Renting a Vintage car or a car of an older model adds to the grandeur of the wedding and makes everything appear more luxurious.
Get the color right
It is important the color you choose for the car you hire, complements the style and theme of your wedding. Hiring a maroon car when your theme is pastel pink would just be off. Also, you might want to check with the car rental company if they would be able to match the flora and ribbons with the car you are choosing.
Look for tasteful vintage car owners
There are many hobbyists car owners that give out their cars for occasions like weddings and other cocktail parties to a select few. Look them up!
Make sure the car is not double booked
Ask the company if you are getting exclusive use of the car. Double booking of a car is not only inconvenient but extremely unprofessional.
