Whether it’s stag dos and hen dos, wedding speeches or a honeymoon holiday, there are plenty of traditions that make a wedding a super special day. One of the more subtle traditions is arriving at the venue in a luxurious vehicle, whether you’re the bride or groom. These cars provide a little bit of elegance to the day and elevate it to a whole new level.

Couples can choose from a range of designs, from classic cars to sports cars and everything in between. So how much should you pay for wedding car hire and what cars can you hire? We aim to answer these questions and shed a little more light on hiring cars on your wedding day.   

What is the most popular Wedding Car?

When it comes to choosing the right wedding car for your big day, it can be helpful to know what other people are choosing for theirs. The most popular wedding day cars are quite often high-end modern cars such as the Rolls Royce Phantom or a more classic Austin Princess Limousine. The choice of car can differ between the one bringing the bride and father-of-the-bride to the one carrying the groom to the wedding.

The most popular of these cars are ones with a more classical look that can add something a little different to the overall proceedings of the day. As it is rare to see or drive a classical car any other day, hiring a classic car for your wedding is a great way to mark the occasion.

How much does it cost to rent a car for a wedding?

The cost of renting a car for a wedding day can change hugely, depending on the type of car, the location and how long you’d like the car for. The make of car is one of the biggest things affecting the price, with a rare classic car costing far more than a modern one for example. Wedding car hire prices are usually calculated by the hour and how long you have the car. Some companies will offer price breaks if customers rent the vehicles longer than five or six hours or if you hire more than one car.

Is hiring a wedding car worth it?

You may ask yourself whether hiring a car or another vehicle for your wedding day is worth it. This, of course, is much like every other aspect of your wedding and depends on personal preferences. Yet having a special car to bring the bride or groom to the wedding venue is a fantastic thing to see and experience.

Wedding vehicles add not only an element of glamour to the proceedings, but they also provide much-needed practicality to the day by ferrying people to and fro, getting them where they need to be. This combination of the practical and the glamorous makes hiring a wedding car all the more worth it.

To sum up

Whether it’s the subtlety of a classic Austin Princess Limousine or an over the top florescent sports car, the added class of a wedding car can elevate your wedding day to something more. Ensuring you book your car within a decent amount of time and have researched the pricing of your desired model, you should have everything you need to roll up to the venue in style.
