Here are some tips on how to get the most out of your wedding car hire, even if you don't know a lot about transportation.
1) Think about the journey you will make and who will be in the wedding cars. It is important that you think about where the pick up points are and exactly who you would like to be in the wedding cars. How many bridesmaids, flower girls and pageboys will you be having, this will determine how many wedding cars you will need. If you want to stick to the traditional two wedding cars then why not consider hiring a seven seat Daimler Limousine as your wedding car?
2) Look for a well established full-time professional company because this will be the company that is still in business when the wedding day comes round. There are many hobbyist wedding car owners out there that do not operate as a proper business. One easy way to sort through these is to check for wedding hire insurance and public liability insurance, it is an expensive cost.
3) Choose a firm who knows the area well and that has supplied many wedding cars, they will have knowledge of many of the churches and reception venues. The company should plan the chauffeurs schedules, and each chauffeur should have a full briefing and undergo a dry-run of the route prior to the wedding. This will also check for any disruption on the roads or any plans for roadworks that may cause delays. The cars should be prepared a couple of days before the wedding to ensure they are in tip top condition and decorated in accordance with your requirements.
4) Think about timing and be realistic. Decide on the route of your journey as early as possible and make sure the car hire company knows exactly where you want to go. Some brides like to take a special route to the church, while after the ceremony the bride and groom may want to enjoy a drive round in the wedding car before going to the reception. The wedding car company will help you plan a route and timings but consider what you would like. It may be that you need 2 cars in order to get the wedding party to the locations in the right order and on time.
