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.

Alternative Wedding Transport

When planning your wedding, you will want to ensure your big day is remembered for the right reasons, standing out when compared to traditional celebrations.

One way in which brides and grooms are ensuring they stand out is through the use of transport, opting for alternative modes of travel as opposed to your conventional chauffeur car.

Thrilled to be catering to such wild tastes, we at Limo Broker share a few alternative wedding transport ideas with you:

Horse and carriage

Go back 100 years and most high-end weddings would incorporate horse and carriage travel. Usually reserved for the bride and groom, there really is nothing more lavish that making your entrance in this way. Giving off fairytale vibes, it is completely understandable why more and more couples are exploring the idea of horse and carriage hire when planning their wedding days.

Supercar hire

When attending a wedding, we all expect the bride and groom to blow us away with their entrances, usually arriving in white limousines, sleek Rolls Royces and the likes. But, if you want to really wow on your wedding day, supercar hire is the way to do it. From their loud engines to their bold designs and colours, nothing shouts extravagance more than a supercar.
Below are a few vehicles that you can hire through us for your nuptials:

  • Lamborghini Aventador
  • Ferrari Italia
  • Bugatti Veyron
  • Audi R8
  • Porsche 911

Party bus hire

Looking to completely blow your guests’ socks off? If so, you won’t go far wrong with a party bus; a vehicle that is basically a nightclub on wheels. Fitted with karaoke machines, dance floors, champagne fridges and disco lighting as standard, hiring a party bus for your wedding is well and truly ripping up the rulebook.

Arrange your wedding transport

Whether you like the idea of attending your wedding in a limo, sleek chauffeur car or something a little more ‘out there’, we at Limo Broker would be more than happy to help you find the perfect solution. Contact us today for more details on what we can offer you and your partner.

The Best Rolls Royces for 2019 Weddings

From the classics to the new, economical SUVs, Rolls Royce boast a stellar reputation for creating fine cars.

As a result, their fleet has been adopted by the wedding industry wholeheartedly, with their vehicles proving to be the most stunning, reliable wedding cars on the planet. Having shared our fair share of Rolls Royce wedding cars in our time, we have gotten to know what types of Rollers work for certain types of weddings. If you find yourself on the search for Rolls Royce wedding car hire, then below we have profiled our top picks.

These are cars that stand out amongst the best!

Rolls Royce Phantom

Being the frontman of the Rolls Royce collection, the Rolls Royce Phantom is just stunning. Being large in size with its extended wheelbase, it is spacious, elegant and turbo-charged!

Rolls Royce Ghost

The Rolls Royce Ghost is a 4 seater Sedan that UK brides and grooms are enjoying on the most important day of their life. With a more modern, younger feel, the Ghost is slightly more compact yet equally as beautiful as the Phantom.

Rolls Royce Silver Cloud

On the search for something a little more traditional in style? If so, why not ride to your wedding in a historic car; the Rolls Royce Silver Cloud. Made from 1955 to 1966, the luxury automobile is a limited edition; one that is the epitome of fine travel.

Rolls Royce Cullinan

Last, but by no means least, we have the Rolls Royce Cullinan; the latest creation from the British carmakers. Referred to as ‘the world’s first super-luxury all-terrain SUV’, this car is great for tackling the unpredictable British weather!

If you wish to reserve any of the above vehicles for your big day, then you can do so on LimoBroker.Co.Uk; the home of luxury transportation.

Royal Wedding Cars: Eugenie’s Vehicles Delivered to Windsor Castle

Now, there have been many mixed opinions about the upcoming royal wedding, with Princess Eugenie’s big day costing the taxpayer a great deal of money. While the royal family will incur the cost of most of the celebration’s costs, the taxpayer will foot a £2m bill for security on the day. But, with the royal family bringing a lot to the economy, many just want the wedding to run smoothly and in true royal wedding style.

Here at Limo Broker, we were understandably excited to hear about the cars, with royal wedding cars renowned for their lavish, extravagant nature.

This is why we were thrilled to hear of the wedding car delivery that took place this week. According to sources, the wedding venue, Windsor Castle, received a rather expensive delivery of stunning vehicles. These included a Rolls Royce off-roader as well as a stunning Bentley. Branded as ‘ultra-expensive’, these cars are said to be worth £300,000 and £130,00 retrospectively.

With more than 800 guests expected to occupy the 15th century Gothic chapel on the day, this is very much a no-expense-spared event.

The Rolls Royce Cullinan

While many would not expect to see an off-roader used at a royal wedding, the Rolls Royce Cullinan is cut from a different cloth. Not available to the public until 2019, the wedding will be the first time we have seen the car being used in this way. Thought to be the SUV for the super rich, the Cullinan is the pinnacle of luxury transport. And, is there really a more fitting car brand to travel to a British royal wedding than a Rolls Royce?

Like Harry and Meghan’s wedding, Eugenie’s wedding to Jack Brooksbank will be televised. But, will the Rolls Royce Cullinan gather as much interest as the all-electric Jaguar did when Harry tied the knot? We would love to hear your thoughts.

Marilyn Monroe’s wedding car is up for sale

As you know, here at Limo Broker, we love nothing more than an extravagant wedding car; cars that have a real story to tell. This is why in recent years, we have made further additions to our vintage fleet, wanting to share the wonderful cars of history with our customers.

Displaying such a passion for the vehicle of yesteryear, we were understandably intrigued to hear that Marilyn Monroe’s wedding car was up for sale. As a woman renowned for being a hopeless romantic, the blonde bombshell had various high-profile partners. However, the car up for sale, the 1955 Ford Thunderbird, was used on her third wedding to Arthur Miller. Bought for her by Milton Greene, Monroe’s business partner and photographer, the convertible provided the backdrop for many iconic Monroe pictures.

Up for sale for a respectable $500,000, the car is a rare beauty. However, its beauty has been largely concealed for the last 50 years or so, with its anonymous owner keeping the car in a garage.

Bosting ‘Raven Black’ exterior and gleaming white interior, the car works with a classic black and white colour theme. Equally as impressive under the bonnet, the Ford also transmits a 225 horsepower V-8 engine, having a top speed of 113mph.

More than just a wedding car

But, this car was not just the actress’ wedding car, but the only car to be registered in her name.

Speaking about the car in the past, Amy Greene, Milton Greene’s wife, said:

“Marilyn liked to drive. We’d take the convertible and with the top down, we’d go sailing along the highway.

“We both liked to feel the wind in our faces and the warmth of the heater on our legs.”

Let us know what you think, does the Thunderbird warrant the $500,000 price tag? leave your comments below.
