Helpful Tips To Get In And Out Of A Wedding Car.

Getting Into The Wedding Car.

  • Step 1 – Let go of the bouquet.  If you are holding your bouquet, your chauffeur will ask for you to hand it to him before you attempt to get in the car.
  • Step 2 – Hold someone’s hand. A wedding gown is a lot larger and heavier than your average dress, so this is no time to be independent.  Take the chauffeurs hand before you attempt to get into the car.  This will allow you to remain steady as you attempt to get into the car.
  • Step 3 – Turn around (with your back facing the vehicle) and sit down on the car seat first.  Then, bring your feet into the car. Alternatively with larger door wedding cars pick your dress up and step into the car then turn and sit down.
  • Step 4 – Make sure your entire wedding gown (and your veil) is in the car.  Before the chauffeur shuts the door, make sure that all of your wedding gown (train included) and your wedding veil are inside of the car.  If it is too difficult for you to pull in your train and/or your veil, your chauffeur will assist.

Getting Out Of The Wedding Car.

  • Step 1 – Don’t attempt to open the door.  Allow the chauffeur to open the door for you before you get out of the vehicle.
  • Step 2 – Let go of the bouquet.  If you are holding your bouquet, hand it over to your chauffeur before you attempt to get out of the car.
  • Step 3 – Look before you leap.  Before you get out of the car, check out the ground in the immediate area to ensure you are not stepping into mud, puddle or a pothole.
  • Step 4 – Start with your both feet first.  Swivel your body around and place both of your feet out of the car.  Then, take the chauffeurs hand before you attempt to get out of the wedding car.  This will keep you steady if you lose your “footing” as you get out of the vehicle.  Once you have both of your feet out of the car and you take the chauffeurs hand, you can step out of the car – watch your head.
  • Step 5 – Make sure your entire dress is out of the car.  Before the chauffeur shuts the door, make sure that your entire gown and your veil is outside of the car.  If it is too difficult for you to grab your train and/or veil, ask for assistance.
