How many wedding cars will I need?
The number of wedding cars required is dependant on the number of passengers and the distance to the church/marital venue.
If the distance is short it could be possible for one car to chauffeur the bridesmaids first and then return for the bride, you may even decide for the same car to transport the grooms party prior. It is customary for the bride to gift the groom a present on the day and what is better than arranging his transport? this also ensures his promptness to the wedding service, we have the ability to transport up to eight groomsmen in our Hummer limousine.
What decorations will I need on the car?
Most companies (we certainly do) supply and furnish your colour scheme ribbons, bows & petals to your chosen car, there will also be a matching floral display if suited.
The colour scheme can be determined by the bouquet flowers, bridesmaids’ dresses, or the grooms party suits or ties. The matching dressed vehicle will look fantastic in the photographs.
