If your wedding and reception are in the same venue you may argue that you don’t really need a wedding car, but it forms part of the wedding dream – the perfect chauffeur driven car, whether it is vintage or modern – to drive you to your wedding.
The choice of car is endless, and below are our top tips for getting the most from your wedding car.
check out the options on line. Look at photos on the company’s web site before arranging to see the car
make sure you see the actual car – not just a photo of it. Some companies act as agents for other companies’ cars, and while there is nothing wrong with this, you need to know where the buck stops
find out if there is a back up plan. Cars do, unfortunately, occasionally breakdown
check that the company is correctly insured. While it is perhaps not appropriate to ask to see insurance documents, a brief email confirming this point if it isn’t already on the company’s documentation will suffice if there is a problem later
feel uncomfortable about asking exactly what a particular car looks like – you are not expected to know your Armstrongs from your Bentleys
expect to be taken for a ride when you go to see the car; how the car feels is largely irrelevant
Wedding car companies can’t hire their cars out for proms, birthdays, parties etc, unless they are licensed with the local council – the same as a Taxi. Any vehicle , whether it is a car, tractor or fire engine, must be licensed if they are to be used for public hire, along with an operator’s license, and drivers must also be licensed with the council.
