can be no doubt that apart from the bride’s dress the wedding car is
often the most talked about topic at a wedding. Therefore many couples
make sure they choose the right vehicle for that special occasion. They
often start looking months ahead of the date to make sure they find just
the right one. Some couples like all things modern – also the modern
car. But others prefer classic wedding cars.
When one looks at the
various categories of old cars, classic refers to older cars that
people like to collect, often restore to their former glory and
sometimes take to shows for old cars. The classic car therefore refers
to cars from a few decades ago, such as those cars we no longer see on
our roads on a daily basis.
This category also refers to the
vintage cars from before the 1930’s – and even older; the antique cars.
These cars are popular with the more traditional couples when they get
married. They may want to create a certain atmosphere at their wedding,
which will reflect a less modern, more subdued ambience.
wedding cars are ideal for more mature couples who want to create a laid
back, rather than party feel at their wedding. This can also be true
for many younger couples. It really is a matter of budget and choice
when you make your decision. The classic car, as opposed to the modern
car, will undoubtedly bring back memories of a previous time and era.
you own such a car, or know someone who does, you will have to go to a
bit of trouble to find one. Think of some examples of what could be
termed classic wedding cars: maybe a Rolls Royce from the 1920’s, a
Beauford Tourer from the 1930’s or an Austin Princess Limousine from the
1960’s. These are just examples of what couples that enjoy a classic
rather than a modern car may want to consider.
And of course there
are coupés, sedan style cars or convertibles to choose from. It all
depends on the individual couples what kind of wedding car they have in
When you start thinking of that special car, a few factors
should be considered. Some of these include – obviously – budget, the
time of year you want the car for and alternatives to your first choice.
As for time of the year: Never wait too long to look for classic
wedding cars since you may be disappointed if you wait too long.
example, summer is often a popular season to get married which means
many more couples may be looking for a car at that time. Therefore make
sure you make your decisions early to be sure you find just the right
car. Sometimes owners of these cars will advertise their availability in
the press; however, most owners contact an agency that finds clients
for these cars. Alternatively, the agencies go looking for the owners
and then advertise these cars on their website.

log on and see what the internet comes up with. Every reliable,
reputable agency advertises their cars on the internet. They make it

available, and they will be in the best position to take care of all

able to do. Therefore make sure you deal with a good company to help
