Get Me To The Church: Tips For Choosing Wedding Transport

Matt Crisp May 30, 2023

The wedding season is almost upon us, and no doubt couples up and down the country will be looking after those last minute details. One point that is very important to get right is your wedding transport: You will definitely want to arrive in comfort and style, not to mention on time. Here are some top suggestions.

Consider the distance

If you are inviting a lot of guests and the reception is some distance away from the church or other ceremony venue, then you may want to consider coach hire

This will ensure that no one gets lost enroute, and everyone is in the same place at the same time. If your wedding is in an unusual or out of the way location, this may be of extra importance.

A bus or coach is also a practical way to return your guests safely home, and means that no one has to hold back on the champagne! No doubt this will help to get everyone in the right mood to celebrate your big day.

Consider the size of the group

The bride may wish to travel with just one other person, traditionally the mother of the bride, or she may wish to have her bridesmaids travel with her. Choose a bridal vehicle that is capacious enough for the whole party to travel in comfort. 

A luxury mini bus is ideal for transporting a smaller group of guests to and from the venue, while a group of any size could enjoy a ride on a vintage routemaster London bus.

Consider the dress

When choosing the bridal car, it can be easy to overlook how well the dress will fit inside, especially if it has a long train or veil. Make sure there is enough space for the bride to sit comfortably without crumpling up the precious outfit.

Make it memorable

You will want your special day to be memorable and unique, so it is a great idea to look for a vehicle hire company that can help you put your own stamp on the proceedings. A courteous and professional chauffeur makes all the difference of course.

If you have decided to hire a vintage bus, it can be made more fun with details such as personalised tickets, banners, and even your very own conductors!

Consider the overall theme of your wedding

Of course you will want the moment when you arrive at the venue to be captured on camera. A red London double decker may be suited to a fun quirky wedding, or maybe a modern luxury vehicle would fit the bill for a sophisticated contemporary do.

Keep your options open

If you are on a limited budget, it might worth taking a look around at what is available before committing to your final choice. 

You might have had your heart set on arriving at your wedding venue in a beautiful carriage drawn by four white horses, or even a small aircraft. However, this will take a huge chunk of your budget, whereas a classic vehicle is a stylish and affordable option.
