When you first start planning a wedding you will likely have no idea just how involved the whole thing is. There are countless different factors to consider at each stage of the way and no-one can really prepare you for just how much the whole thing is likely to cost or just how long it will take to organize.
In fact, if you take any single one element for your wedding planning, then you will find that there are enough different factors to fill an entire book. Wedding transportation is no different – though it may seem like a straightforward idea, this really couldn’t be further from the truth and there are all kinds of things you need to remember when you look into it. Read on and we’ll discuss some of the most important considerations for wedding transportation to help you make the right choice.
The type of car you want is the most obvious consideration and the first thing you’ll have to decide. Do you want a modern sports car? Or something a little more classic looking? Do you want something with lots of space in the back – and just how many people are you going to have riding here? You also need to think about the bride’s dress and how easily she is going to be able to get in and out of the car. If she has a long ‘train’ then she’s going to probably want a slightly lower-down car.
What’s also important is the color and this right away is a more involved decision than you possibly will have realized. For instance, you need to ensure that the color you choose for your car is going to be one that stands out well in photographs. White is perhaps the most popular color for a wedding car, seeing as it’s very classic looking and will match the dress. However, some brides will prefer not to choose white cars because they don’t show up as well in photographs and cause the dress to look almost camouflaged. For these reasons some couples will prefer a ‘sky blue’ color or similar.
Remember, there are two different cars for your wedding transportation too – one will be the car that the bride and groom travel in (and the bride and father on the way to the ceremony venue) and the other will be a car for the bridesmaids and mother of the bride.
So you’ll also want to make sure that the colors of the two cars work well together when they arrive and park next to each other. Chances are that your wedding will have a color scheme which will consist of a primary and secondary color. If you can find wedding cars in those two colors, then this will mean they’re sure to match and it will help you to demonstrate more attention to detail and a more consistent design language.
The cars will each also have a fair amount of decoration which should further enhance their look. For instance, you will usually have a bunch of flowers in the back of the car which will help to make it look extra special.
At the same time, the cars will also often have ribbons at the front. This again helps to show that the car is for a celebration and is an important additional touch. Now you’re going to have to choose a ribbon (or two) that matches the car and you’ll want to think about how this all works with the color scheme and the bridesmaids’ dresses.
Price and Fuel
Once all that is decided you of course need to think about the cost and whether you can afford your dream wedding car. Remember that the distance the cars have to travel makes a big difference, so if you can find a service nearer your church/venue that will often knock down the price considerably!
