When it comes to planning your wedding, choosing a wedding car is a major decision that needs to be taken seriously. There’s a lot to take into consideration before you start thinking about booking your dream wedding car and with that in mind, at A.T. Beauford, have listed 7 things that you need to think about before booking a wedding car for your wedding day.

1. Location

Before booking any wedding car, you need to have a clear idea of where you need to get from and where you are going. Even if your wedding ceremony and reception are in the same place, you’ll need to think about where you want your transport to pick you up from to travel to your venue.

If you need transport to your ceremony venue and then onto a different venue for the reception, you’ll need to factor in transfer time, thinking about how many trips will be needed from one destination to the next.

2. Theme

Whether you’re having a traditional, vintage, modern or novelty wedding, you’ll want the cars to blend in or match your theme. Choosing the colour of your car is an important consideration if you want everything to match throughout the course of the day. If you have booked a professional photographer to take photos of you with the car in the background. This will help you to make more of an impressive entrance.

3. Dress

A lot of brides will consider this the most important factor when thinking about what wedding car to choose for the big day. Not every wedding dress is the same so it’s not a case of one size fits all. Some dresses are light and simple, so it’s not as much of an issue. Others can be a lot bigger, with layers of underskirts and hoops that can make sitting down in small spaces difficult. The size of your dress will often dictate what car to hire for your big day. If you want to arrive looking fresh and free from creases, it’s a wise idea not to try cramming yourself into a two-seater convertible.

4. Logistics

You might have dreamt about travelling to your wedding venue in a particular car, but if you have chosen a fleet of bridesmaids to be part of your wedding party, you might want to look into hiring more than one vehicle to escort everyone. Think about how many people are in your wedding party and this will help you to make your decision.

It’s no good booking one car to go backwards and forwards, when you could book a more suitable vehicle to escort everyone in one journey. A limousine might be the best option to opt for if you have several people that require transport to get to the venue.

5. Packages

Find out if you get any extras with your wedding car hire in London. Does the price include a chauffeur or do you have to pay extra for a driver on top of the price for the car? Ask your chosen company what packages they offer as this may influence your overall decision.

6. Locality

Hiring a wedding car from a local company is a clever idea if you want to avoid extra charges from cars having to drive further. Local drivers will know the roads better as well, so you there’s a reduced risk of your driver getting stuck in traffic or not knowing the routes as well.

7. Availability

If your dream car isn’t available then there isn’t much you can do. The best thing you can do is book early to avoid disappointment. This will give you ample time to go and view the car before the big day and make sure everything is how you imagined it would be.
