You may have been delegated the task of booking the wedding vehicles, or this may have been assumed by your Bride's parents. You may have even passed the buck to your Mum to organise. So let us help you win some brownie points.
This Gull Wing Bristol was even free of charge courtesy of The Best Man.
The Bride, being fully aware of her wedding dress insisted in organising her own wedding vehicle - inset photograph.
Once all back at the reception venue the bride quite jovially demonstrated just how far into the vehicle she was able to get.
Game, Set & Match
Personally I am a petrol head and just love big flashy old fashioned cars that have big chrome head lights and a drop down roof. Small racy open top sports cars also appeal very much. But stop and think for a second. Your fiancé would have spent weeks planning and hours on the day getting her makeup and hair done. An open topped vehicle is probably going to be less of a winner and more "Dont Tell The Bride" territory? We find many brides ask us to close the wedding car windows even when they are only slightly open, so as to keep the hair in position.
This is without any question of doubt the journey from your Bride's house/hotel to your wedding ceremony venue. It being absolutely essential that your bride can arrive at your wedding looking and feeling exactly as she has planned to look and feel - regardless of the English weather.
Unfortunately (at the planning stage) and very fortunately (on the Wedding Day)
wait until you glance over your shoulder on the day and see your bride walking down the aisle - an image that will be branded on your mind for ever more - you may not be privy to any information regarding your Bride's wedding dress. So you have to plan the car without knowing what exactly what dress to plan for (have a chat with the brides Mum)
Unsure about the vehicle you want - well that's any easy test - wrap a duvet around yourself and see how easy you can enter and exit your chosen vehicle with style and elegance (roof up and roof down) then ask your self 'could my girl do this'
So many 'viewings' are carried out in jeans & trainers with little consideration to the use and wedding attire on the day.
Should you, maybe with influence from your Bride's Dad, really want a 'Boys Toy' vehicle then please reserve such a vehicle for the journey from wedding venue to reception venue. If an open top vehicle arrange with the Bride's Mother for a large head scarf for the Bride (now your Wife) so she may do a 'Lawrence of Arabia' style and safeguard hair during the journey.
