The wedding car is an important part of every wedding, no matter where you’re tying the knot. Be it in a church, hotel or Country Park, arriving in style adds that layer of class to proceedings and the right vehicle should be chosen for both of you.
Many will have shared the standard dream of arriving in a horse drawn carriage, ala Cinderella, but that’s not always practical and can be costly for such a short period of usage. Likewise, using a generic wedding car can be expensive and may not suit your style. There are many other options out there.
Using a classic car to drive to and from your wedding in adds a unique touch. If the two of you have a passion for a particular model then it should be no problem to rent one, as long as it’s not a rare version. Browse the classic car section on Exchange & Mart to find ideas if you’re both struggling to agree.
You don’t just have to rent it either. Buying a classic car can be relatively cheap depending on the model, and you could even ask for it as a combined wedding present from guests. Just don’t ask for a Suzuki X-90.
More expensive than a classic car to buy, renting a sports car for weddings is becoming more common place. It’s your big day, so if being chauffeured round in a Ferrari has always been the dream then you may as well splash out that bit extra to make the occasion even more memorable.
Convertibles to 4X4s will help to make a grand entrance, though you’ll have to consider the colour to avoid any clashes with the dress. And deciding who’s going to drive it away at the end could prove the first test of newly married life.
It doesn’t even have to be a car you use. A speedboat gives that feeling of power but is only useful if the wedding venue is near a river or lake. Tractors could be appropriate for countryside locations while motorbikes are great for the more daring couples. Even helicopters have been used by those with the finances.
It all depends on what you both have a passion for but any of these options will help create a far more unique wedding experience. They will also improve the photographs tenfold and ensure your special day really is that. Especially for the inner car fan.
