Choosing the perfect wedding car
Updated: Dec 10, 2018
There are so many variations to choose from when finding the perfect wedding car. Here a little summary of what you might find and things to consider.
The Vintage Car
When you think of wedding car, vintage is where the mind automatically takes you. Rolls Royce in particular is probably the most thought of. Whilst there is no denying they have the look, do they have the reliability? As time passes so does the age of the cars along with the accessibility of parts. It is also worth bearing in mind that some of these vehicles were produced before road laws came into play. So you might find that some have restrictions on times of day when they can be driven or what conditions they are able to drive in.
The Classic Car
These sit in the middle of a modern car and a vintage wedding car. They do have the kerb appeal and they carry their own against the vintage models. Often more reliable than a vintage wedding car as they are younger and parts still accessible. However, often they may be sports cars such as Jaguar E-Type or they have limited room in the rear which is not ideal for larger bridal dresses.
The Modern Wedding Car
These are certainly the most practical, tidy and reliable. They are smart looking and you have a variety of price ranges for vehicles to suit all needs. At the top end you have the Rolls Royce Phantom, Bentley Mulsanne or Bentley Flying Spur. At the mid range you have the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7 Series and then at the very low end of the modern car scale you have the long wheel based luxury saloons such as the Mercedes E-Class which is perfectly acceptable from the outside, but it is a little cramped inside as it is a short wheel based vehicle.
