There’s no other element that creates a more spectacular arrival than the wedding car or vehicle that you and your wedding party arrive in. Rene Hart explores the options for your wedding wheels that will complement your style, whether classic and elegant, modern and stylish or a bit quirky.
The way you arrive at your wedding will set the tone for the rest of the day’s events, which is why choosing transport that suits your wedding theme is the perfect way to make an impressive entrance with a lasting impression.
Classic Elegance – wedding cars
Classic beauties are one of the most elegant forms of wedding cars for an impressive entrance. The most popular vehicles include Rolls-Royce, Jaguar, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick, Daimler and Bentley to name a few that depict the elegant styles from the 1940s to 1970s.
All brides deserve to be treated like royalty on their wedding day, and no other car says royalty quite like a Rolls-Royce. With a plush interior, these vehicles were certainly built for comfort, not to mention style, and never fail to turn heads. If you’re going for stature and flair then look no further than a sturdy Cadillac or Chevrolet. You’ll ooze class and style as you drive to your venue with a proud purring engine that will steer you effortlessly to your ceremony.
You’ll be the envy of all your wedding guests in a stylish Bentley, as it offers a spacious interior that will have more than enough room for a wedding dress. For something both understated and lavish, the Jaguar possesses everything you need in a wedding car, and makes for astounding wedding photos.
A Modern Affair – wedding cars
Your wedding is a significant occasion and your vehicle should reflect this. Limousines possess that wow factor that all brides and grooms crave. For a glamorous wedding, the most popular choice is a chauffeur-driven stretch limousine. Stretch limousines combine formality and function with a sleek design and enough room for your bridal party and family to feel like VIPs too, with most stretch limos holding eight to ten passengers. Elegance and sophistication dominate the Chrysler 300c, which has made this particular limousine one of the most popular cars for weddings.
For thrill-seeking couples looking for an edgier ride, supercars like the ultra-exotic Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari or Aston Martin, will impress. With a host of gadgets inside, a supercar is one of the finest to have at your disposal – even if for just one day. They often come in daring hues like red and yellow, so take your wedding colours into consideration when hiring.
Fairytale Romance – wedding cars
For the ultimate Cinderella experience, you can’t go past a horse-drawn carriage to make you feel just like a princess on your special day. Appropriate for relatively short distances, a carriage allows the newlyweds to spend some romantic time together between the ceremony and reception. Better still, it makes for the most amazing and romantic wedding photos!
Boho Bride – wedding cars
Perfect for a beachside or vintage wedding, a Kombi van will bring plenty of enjoyment and nostalgia to the day and add extra personality to your arrival and departure. VW Kombis are a fun and trendy backdrop to wedding photos, but are also very practical and for the whole bridal party.
The Whimsical Wedding – wedding cars
If you don’t mind your hair blowing in the wind, a 1960s convertible mustang is a cheeky wedding car with attitude that will capture the spirit of fun, which is what you want your wedding day to be all about. This is a great idea for a retro-inspired wedding and your guests will be talking about your unique mode of transport for years to come.
An old-school New York Checker cab is perfect for couples angling for some old school New York flavour. With so many couples keen to embrace vibrant colours in their wedding, it really is a fun vehicle to arrive in and it adds another dimension to your wedding theme.
Urban Arrival – wedding cars
For a limo-like experience with a bit more bling, a stretch Hummer will take you around town in presidential style! These mega-SUVs generally come with fibre optic disco lights, lasers, mirrored ceilings, pimped-out sound systems and tinted windows, and they can fit up to 20 passengers, which makes for a spacious, comfortable and fashionable ride for the bride and the entire wedding party.
A slick city affair could see the bride and her posse rock up in a wedding party bus. From simply getting to the ceremony on time to having a lot of fun on the way to the reception, a party bus enhances every aspect of a wedding celebration, offering plenty of character and space for ferrying around the entire wedding party.
Keeping With Traditional – wedding cars
Inspired by a golden era of timeless beauty and craftsmanship from the 1920s to 1930s, a vintage car can add charm to your wedding. Comfortable yet full of personality, each vehicle has its own individual look and style, including signature sweeping running boards and prominent headlights. A stunning vintage car is a fabulous way to add a touch of tradition to your special day and will make a breathtaking backdrop in your wedding photos. A fleet of vintage cars is also the perfect way to transport a bridal party.
If you want to make a statement and arrive in something with a bit more pep, a hot rod could be the perfect option. Still luxurious and comfortable to ride in, they come in a range of stunning colours to fit in with your wedding theme.
Your wedding transport provides more than just a ride to your wedding ceremony and your choice can be as unique to you as you want it to be. There are now so many options to choose from, be it something quirky and fun or something classic and elegant – the most important thing is finding the right wedding car for you.
