Because weddings are so special, attention to detail is an issue for most bridal couples, also for those interested in vintage wedding car hire. Vintage cars, generally speaking, refer to cars built before the 1930’s – typically those from the 1920’s.
The wedding car often tells us about the personalities of the bridal couple. If they prefer a vintage car, chances are that they are more traditional than modern and that they may want a stylish affair. The vintage car fits in well with that. If you get such a car for your wedding you will most likely be driven by a well-dressed chauffeur to and from the church and reception venue.
To find one of these old cars may require a little bit of research. There are private clubs whose members may, from time to time, make their cars available for weddings and other special events. Therefore, when you need to hire a vintage wedding car you may have to find out who the owners of these cars are.
An easier way would be to consult your local press or the internet. Some firms that hire out vehicles for weddings advertise their services and the available vehicles on their websites. The good ones provide proper photographs for the client to form an idea of what to expect. They will describe the car, mention details such as year model, colour and how much you can expect to pay for the use of the car.
Often firms who have been providing this service for many years are the best to deal with when you want to hire a vintage wedding car, since they have experience and, importantly, they will have many cars available. These vintage cars normally belong to private owners from all over and they are their owners’ pride and joy.
Companies that find these cars for couples have built up a selection over years; therefore the ones with many years’ experience have built up a great client base and are therefore the best ones to contact for your vintage car.
You have to discuss all the important details with the vintage wedding car hire firm before the big day so that there can be no uncertainty about any aspects. Be sure you know what time to meet the chauffeur, that you have an undertaking that the car has had a proper service and that any decorations such as ribbons in the colour of your preference – if you want that – have been seen to.
Also find out what if insurances are up to date and what undertakings you as the client, apart from payment, have to commit to. You do not want any outstanding issues which could lead to problems on the special day. The bride and her father want to arrive in style, unstressed.
Vintage wedding car hire is the option for those couples whose budget allow them to hire the true beauties form yesteryear, such as a vintage Rolls Royce, Austin with the original upholstery or maybe even a Daimler, for example. Depending on the firm you’re dealing with, you may actually be lucky enough to book a pair of the same cars, if you want that.
And often the choice will extend to convertibles as well which may be what one wants in summer. If you get in touch with the right firm, chances are that you will arrive in a special car on the big day. It has to be said though that these cars are popular and should be booked long before the time to be sure you get one.
When you start thinking about the possibility of vintage wedding car hire you should start early and not give up if you do not find the right one immediately since these cars are not easy to find. Therefore, the moment you do find the appropriate vintage car, book it and be sure to arrive in style at the church and the reception venue.
