So your big day is coming up, with so many things to be decided upon the logistics of getting to and from your wedding day might be pushed to the side. Another consideration will be for your guests; it may not be the best plan to assume that everyone will drive themselves. Therefore, it may be a nice idea to make room in your wedding budget to transport yourself and guests! Thankfully, BookAclassic has loads of options for you.

With the trend to make everything as instagrammable as possible it’s time to eschew traditional modes of transport and get creative. Get inspired by these wedding transportation ideas that you may not have considered before…

Fashion is a big thing in weddings – dresses change from year to year (and with huge influences whenever there’s a royal wedding!) – as do suits (we’ve recently shifted from bright blues to softer shades and a focus on luxury fabrics. But cars?

You wouldn’t expect it, but wedding car trends are huge. When the English Wedding Blog was born it was all about the stately old English cars – the Jaguars, Rolls Royce and Bentleys – big old granddaddies of cars full of luxury and upper class upholstery – to go with the traditional mansion wedding venues, obviously.

Now we’re getting married in urban spaces and converted barns, and in festival style tipi celebrations. And our wedding car choices have shifted, subtly and brilliantly, to fit.

Arriving in style to your wedding is an integral part of the look and feel of the day. Maybe you prefer an understated ride up in a vintage Mercedes, want to go all out luxury with a classic Rolls-Royce, or fancy turning heads in a noisy Mustang. Whatever the car you choose, there’s no doubt it’ll play a big part in your wedding day.

Whether you’re the kind of person to choose a traditional wedding car or you like to think out-of-the-box, here are some tips for choosing the perfect classic for your wedding.

Consider your theme

The theme of your wedding and the look your after in photos could dictate the kind of car you choose. If you’re going for something very traditional, look for a Rolls-Royce, Bentley or Jaguar. These will give you that typical wedding car look when decked out with ribbons and matching flowers.
