5 Things to Consider When Hiring Wedding Cars

Wedding day planning is notorious for its stressful nature, with brides and grooms often feeling pressurised to get everything right and within budget.

This is certainly the case when it comes planning wedding cars, with happy couples needing to find vehicles that tick all the boxes. Below, we share a few things couples need to consider during the wedding car planning process. So, if you are at that stage where you are looking to reserve your vehicles, read on.

Size of the vehicle

When talking about wedding cars, size really does matter! In our experience, the bigger the wedding car, the better. This is because most brides tend to have large dresses, with the comeback of the meringue dress only heightening the need for roomy wedding car cabins. Also, groomsmen will want to arrive with their suit crisp and creaseless, meaning bunching up in the backseat like sardines in a can just isn’t an option.

Length of hire

While you may have a strict itinerary mapped out for your wedding day, the truth is, things don’t always run like clockwork. From photographers needing more time to get that ‘perfect’ shot to speeches running on a little longer than expected, having a wedding day timeline is pretty pointless. And, the last thing you need is your chauffeur driver having to leave the venue before you are ready to go. This is why you should think carefully when deciding on the length of hire. Put it this way, you are much better off hiring your wedding cars for too long rather than not long enough.

Colours

The colour of your wedding car will have a big impact on the look and feel of your big day. Where gleaming white limos represent modernity, burgundy chauffeur cars will give your wedding day a more vintage/classic vibe. Below are the top wedding car colours we receive requests for:

  • White
  • Black
  • Burgundy
  • Blue
  • Red
  • Pink

However, we have been known to hire out bright green and yellow Lamborghinis for the more daring of brides and grooms!

Ribbons and flowers

Many choose to adorn their wedding cars with ribbons and flowers, ensuring all other road users are fully aware that their cars are being used for a wedding celebration. If this is something you would like for your wedding day, be sure to make this apparent when reserving your vehicles!

Photography

Though commonly referred to as the most important day of your life, your wedding day will feel like it is over in a flash. This is why so many brides and grooms want professional photos taken, allowing them to look back on their special day and relive all of those memories. Here at Limo Broker, we see most of our wedding customers request photographs with their limos and chauffeur cars, using them as visually stunning props to pose next to. So, when reserving your cars, think how you can photograph them before signing off on a quote.

A Big Year for BMW, Rolls Royce and Mini

As you will be well aware, here at Limo Broker we are luxury car fanatics, enjoying nothing more than adding new, beautiful chauffeur cars and sports cars to our already-exquisite fleet. Enjoying chauffeuring our customers for high-end events such as weddings, proms, birthday parties and corporate events, we are naturally in demand for Rolls Royces, BMWs and the likes; vehicles that possess a certain je ne sais quoi!  

And, over the course of the last 12 months, we have witnessed a notable trend, with more and more of our customers showing an interest in vehicles from said brands. This is something that has been noticed globally, with sales of such vehicles rocketing in 2018.  

According to BMW Group, the number of owners of BMW, Rolls Royce and Mini vehicles rose substantially in 2018, with the firm enjoying a record-breaking year.  

Figures released by the firm show that the group sold a 2.49 million cars during this defining year. However, with Daimler yet to reveal their statistics to the public, we are do not know whether or not BMW have yet again beat Mercedes Benz and the likes to the top.  

“BMW Group achieved record sales in 2018. 2.49 million vehicles mean the BMW Group is the world’s leading premium automotive company for the 15th year running,” said Chief Executive of the group, Harald Krueger confirmed in a recent statement. 

However, this is no real surprise, with the BMW X5 and the Rolls Royce Cullinan both being the recipients of a string of high-profile awards during the course of the year. As brands that seem to have perfected the balance between style and sustainable motoring, can we expect a repeat performance in 2019? We would love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this subject. Will the BMW Group reign supreme yet again?

Putin’s Limo Can Now be Yours

In recent years, we have seen the war of the presidential limo reach new heights, with Trump and Putin going head-to-head, eager to outshine one another with their state limousines. While both sporting exceptional motors, many of us have become fascinated by Putin’s Aurus limousine; a car developed especially for the presidential motorcade.

As a new brand, many believed his choice of car to be risky, ditching the trusty Mercedes limo for a new, untested model.

A ‘bunker on wheels’

Described as a ‘bunker of wheels’ the limousine puts safety and passenger comfort as priorities; two features that will no doubt served the president well daily.

Due to the limo’s success, the Aurus will now enter full mass production, giving everyone the chance to own their very own Aurus limo. But, this story comes as no surprise, with expansion having been on the brand’s radar for many years now.

“We have started receiving signals from various countries about their desire to buy the [Aurus] limousine. Bahrain is among such countries. But while mass production has not been set up yet, there are only a few cars available. In the future, it will be possible,” the representative said back in 2017.

5000 limos to be made

According to sources, the production line will begin in 2020, with the facilities of Russia’s automobile company, Sollers, being utilised for the project.

Trade Minister, Denis Manturov, made the announcement just this week, revealing that some 5,000 Aurus cars will be produced per year. So far, the brand has only been producing limousines and Sedans. However, with this extra capacity and further investment, the range is set to expand dramatically, stamping Aurus’ name in the Russian manufacturing industry for the foreseeable future.

An off-road vehicle entitled the Aurus Komendant is also set to roll off the production line before 2022; a project that the drivers of Russia eagerly await.

The aim of the brand was to position Russia as a world leader in vehicle manufacturing; a target Aurus is getting closer to on a daily basis. Let us know what you think. Will this project be a success?
