Wedding Car Hire  

A wedding car is a mode of transport used by the bridal and groom party. Wedding car hire will usually involve a chauffeur that picks you up and takes you to the ceremony or venue location. 

Depending on the size of the wedding and its location, a wedding car may only be for the bride and groom, or additional cars can be hired to take the bridesmaids, page boys, etc to the venue. Find Wedding Car hire near me.

What changes the cost of Wedding Car Hire? 

 There’s a lot to think about when it comes to hiring a wedding car. Aside from the cost, the theme and size of the wedding can dictate what mode of transport would be best. Here are the points you need to consider along with how this will affect the cost

  • Type of wedding car

  • Party size 

  • Location 

  • Date of wedding 

Type of wedding car 

Wedding cars come in various shapes and sizes, from vintage two-seaters to huge stretch limos. The vehicle type also needs to take into account whether it’s an older vehicle or a newer model. 

If the car is imported (such as an American Cadillac), then the cost can soar to over £1,000 to hire the vehicle for the day. Older vehicles in general need a lot more care and maintenance, which is reflected in the cost of hiring one. Plus, retro vehicles are in higher demand because of the classic appeal they have for weddings. Newer vehicles are generally cheaper to hire unless they have been customised or have similar special features. It’s possible to find the likes of a Mercedes or Jaguar for around £150. 

Keep in mind that the type of vehicle will have to align with the number of seats you require. Though it is, of course, possible to mix and match vehicle types to keep the cost down too. 

Type of wedding carHighest average price per day Lowest average price per day
American£1,500£300
Aston Martin£500£400
Jaguar£180£150
Luxury£350£300
Mercedes£120£80
Rolls Royce£160£130
Vintage£300£150
VW Beetle£420£300
VW Campervan£360£320

Starting on the cheaper end of the scale, a Mercedes is the cheapest wedding car to hire, costing as little as £80. Likewise, a Rolls Royce, Jaguar, and some vintage models can be hired for around £150, which is very affordable in the wedding car stakes.]

The most expensive wedding car type to hire is an American car, especially if it’s extremely rare or has been customised. These types of vehicles can cost upwards of £1,500 to hire, though in some areas of the country it can be as cheap as £300. As this vehicle type has the largest price fluctuation, it’s certainly worth shopping around if the budget is your top concern. 

Party size

How many people require transport to your wedding is going to influence the cost the most. Given the average wedding car costs £400 to hire, it’s an expense that can soon spiral. Of course, some options can bring the cost down. 

For example, you could have a wedding car for the bride and groom, and then use a minibus or larger transport vehicle for the rest of the wedding party. If you have a lot of bridesmaids and page boys and are on a budget, this would be far more affordable. 

Keep in mind that even if the car is a 5 seater, with the driver, that’s already one less place. Most wedding car providers reduce the seating number to 3 to allow plenty of room in the back for the bride. 

Location

If you require your wedding car provider to drive a long distance from where they are based, then this will incur an additional cost. Some providers may even set a limit as to how far they are willing to travel. This could also impact the cost if you live in a remote location, as you will need to choose a local provider which could be more expensive. 

Date of wedding

Most people get married on a Saturday, and as the demand is at its highest then, so are the costs of hiring a wedding car. If you are looking to save money, then getting married on a weekday will generally be cheaper for all services including hiring a wedding car. 

Is it worth hiring a Wedding Car?

A wedding day is a unique celebration. There is a lot to organise with such a huge day, and the transport to and from the church or venue is no exception. 

When you hire a wedding car it’s not just the vehicle itself you will receive. That’s because driving the vehicle will be a calm and professional chauffeur. Someone knowledgeable about the local area, and will be keeping an eye on the timing of the proceedings. By hiring a chauffeur, also relieves someone else at your wedding party from having to drive you there instead. 

Of course, one of the biggest attractions of hiring a wedding car is the rare opportunity to be transported in the vehicle of your choosing. Aside from the photos, this can produce, it will also create some wonderful memories of your day.
