Wedding Vehicles, With a Twist
For those couples looking for a wedding vehicle that will really make heads turn, the following options could be right up your street.
Our first offering is the wedding sports car. From Ferrari’s to Porsche’s, BMW’s to Mercedes they are cropping up all over the place and a great many of them can be hired as a self-drive option (albeit at a premium). An extremely popular option for the Groom and his Best Man, there won't be a chance that you'll arrive un-noticed in one of these. An article dedicated to wedding sports cars is available on the site and is a must for anyone comtemplating hiring one.
Luxury wedding cars are similar in age to the sports cars, but tend to offer a more refined and comfortable ride. Granted, they are a little slower from 0 to 60mph but these wedding vehicles are also typically a little cheaper to hire than their sports car counterparts. Jaguars, Bentleys and Rolls Royce’s are popular examples of modern luxury cars and arriving in one on your big day will make you feel like a king or queen. For ideas and advice on hiring one of these wedding vehicles, be sure to take a read of our luxury wedding cars guide.
Stretch limo's are a much more common sight on UK roads these days than they were just a few years ago. Originating in the USA, limousines have made their way across the pond and stretch Lincolns, Cadillacs, Hummers, even stretched Mini's and VW Beetle's are now becoming available for hire. Some people couples will love the thoughts of arriving in a wedding limouise, some will people hate the thought (we're firmly in the former camp in case you were wondering!), but whatever your opinion on this type of wedding vehicle, you can’t argue that they are understated and won't make a lasting impression on your big day! More info, ideas and advice on limousines can be found in our wedding limo hire guide.
American wedding cars have made their way across the pond in recent years and are characterised by their radical styling and visually stunning looks. Cadillacs, Chevrolets and Buicks are probably the most common names and for those struggling to picture one, think ‘Grease’ or one of those American movies with a ‘drive-In’ scene. At the present moment in time this form of wedding vehicle isn't widely available for hire, but trust us, it really will be worth your while tracking one down. More info on American wedding cars is available on a dedicated article on Weddingsday.
Our final wedding vehicle in this section is the quintessentially romantic horse & carriage. As a result of the ambience that it creates, horse & carriage hire continues to be a popular option for couples tying the knot. OK, it may not be as comfortable as stretched limo or as practical as a classic car, but wow, will you and your guests remember it forever. You can read more about the hire of wedding carriages in a seperate article on our site.
Alternative Wedding Vehicles
Forget vintage wedding cars. Forget a horse and carriage. If you truly want to be seen and never forgotten, there are some wedding vehicles that will do the trick nicely.
Wedding tuk-tuks, helicopters and fire engines are, believe it or not, some of the more 'normal' alternative wedding vehicles available for hire. Add to the mix the humble JCB, hot air balloons and even hearses and you can see that the options are simply endless. Essentially, if it moves, it can be hired as a wedding vehicle for your big day.
