- Will the chauffeurs be wearing uniforms?
The uniform adds a really professional touch to the wedding and it just looks so much nicer. I haven’t yet seen a wedding car provider who doesn’t ask the chauffeurs to wear suits but it’s best to check.
- Will you provide matching ribbons to decorate the car?
Most wedding car providers do supply their own ribbons for the cars. They add a lovely detail and everyone will know that you’re getting married as you drive along. Wedding ribbons are very cheap from Hobby Craft or Confetti.
- Will there be flowers in the car?
Sometimes they will provide flowers in the back of the car. This looks lovely, I’m having flowers in the back of my car, and my friend had them in the back of theirs so I’m pretty sure most wedding car suppliers provide flowers.
- Will you do a trial journey before The Day?
A trial journey allows the driver to know where any tricky slopes or parts of the journey will be. Conscientious wedding car suppliers will do a trial journey, find out if your provider will do the same.
- How many people will fit in each car?
The first car will hold you and your father, and then you and your husband, but the bridesmaid car will hold the bridesmaid, the flower girl, the page boy, your mother and who knows what else! Make sure they all fit!
- Can we put our luggage and belongings in the boot?
Weddings are busy times and you might not be able to get to the reception venue where you might be sleeping over before The Day. Popping your luggage in the back would make things a lot more convenient, if they let you!
- What happens if the car breaks down?
Fingers crossed this will never happen, but you need to know that there is going to be a contingency plan if things to go pot!
- Do you do discounts or match prices?
Well, if you don’t ask you don’t get and there’s always a chance that they may ask previous prices you’ve been quoted.
Good luck choosing your wedding cars! It wasn’t very easy for me!
