Some Good Old Wedding Cars Advice
I love wedding cars! Wedding cars advice is essential in order for your special day to go by
Often people don’t feel they need advice on such a simple thing as renting a car, but there is
much more to it.
What you are looking for is usually an old classic car, so believe me, you do need some wedding
Old cars brake often and they are usually expensive to repair and maintain. Once I was
photographing a wedding in England and the couple hired a beautiful 1950 pink Cadillac. It was very original and
extremely cool. They never knew that the pink Cady barely made it... while they were having dinner at the venue, I
saw the wedding car being towed away, as it wouldn’t want to go back home.
First of all I strongly advise you to put your wedding in the hands of a solid company that can
guarantee back up, just in case something goes wrong with the car of your choice. Remember they are very old
cars and they tend to brake a lot. I think you should trust a company that has several cars to choose
from.Only the fact that they own several cars (that you can see that is) will guarantee you some
Make sure you see the actual car you will have at your wedding. Do not assume that Rolls Royce
means top quality; nowadays we are used to a much higher standard than 50 years ago.
Do not be satisfied with a picture of the car on a nice brochure, demand to see the actual
wedding car; I have seen some dodgy people from some wedding car hire company going around with a nice glossy brochure but with not a single
One day, one of those dodgy wedding car salesman, casually told me that the important thing for
him was to “get” the clients... he would have found the car later on. Do not trust people like this guy.
I cannot emphasize this enough: see and touch the car. Talking of dodgy people, do
require a contract OR a confirmation of your deal and requirements in writing, including the cost of eventual
"extra mileage". Remember that only what is written counts.
Make sure you have some sort of wedding car insurance, just in case something goes wrong. More
often than not this is provided by the wedding car rental company, but make sure you ask.
It sounds obvious, but make sure there is enough room for whoever you want to ride in the car with
you and most of all, make sure you will fit in that particular car with your wedding dress. Ask for some
wedding cars advice to the people you will rent the car from.
Ideally they will have years of experience and they will be able to guide you through decision
Also you want to ask (and maybe see some pictures) what the driver will wear. Once I have seen a
wedding car driver in jeans. Everything had been paid for and they simply didn’t care. Some more wedding
cars advice... if renting a wedding car is not for your pocket or style, then you might want to consider decorating
your own car! This can be a fun experience and you could turn your 1995 Ford Fiesta into a... 1995 Ford Fiesta with
lots of frills! In that case you might need some wedding car decorations to make it look less ordinary and
more extraordinary... well, at least that’s the plan.
Wedding car decorations can be a challenging task, if it's something you have never done
before. It looks easy when you see those beautifully decorated cars on a Saturday afternoon around town, but
it’s NOT that easy.
I can’t explain you how to do it, because I am not a decorator. What I can tell you is that I
have seen quite a few people going crazy an hour before the wedding ceremony, trying to stick that ribbon on the
door handle. They obviously didn't get any wedding cars advice... My advice is: practice well before the wedding!
Give yourself plenty of time to fix things or to run to the local shop to get the missing tape or whatever you will
use to stick stuff on the car. Decorate the whole car a few days before the wedding and then take it all down; it
will all be ready and much easier to put on a second time.
