It’s lovely to have a luxury chauffeur-driven limousine to drive you to your wedding – and it’s also a practical choice. You can be sure you’ll arrive on time and, with all that room, you won’t have to worry about your dress getting creased.
Normally the best man drives the groom to the ceremony and then takes the car to the reception. But you will need transport for the bride’s mother and bridesmaids (who usually travel together), for the bride and her father to the ceremony and for the principals from the ceremony to the reception.
Whether you want a traditional Rolls Royce, a classic Daimler, a convertible Cadillac, a stretch limo or even a horse and carriage, contact a variety of companies in your area and ask to see the cars themselves, not just pictures of them. Then you can check they’re in perfect condition, inside and out.
Some companies offer a service which includes flowers in the cars and a glass of champagne for the bride and groom on their way to the reception. Check exactly what’s included in the price and get a written quotation.
Brides on a tight budget can usually find a friend with a smart car to help out with the transport. It’s worth paying for the car to be valeted just before the day and buying ribbons to give it that bridal touch.
