Getting married is probably one of the most exciting and life-altering events of your life, so many couples prefer to make it an unforgettable experience. All the details you choose are important, as most brides-to-be know. You want everything to be perfect down to the color of napkins you use on your special day, but many people don’t think about transportation to the reception.
Many couples think about horse-drawn carriages and other over-the-top travel options, but the class vintage car shouldn’t be overlooked, either. Luxury vehicles such as limousines can be fun but remember that this is your wedding and you may want to do something different. If you want to break all the wedding rules, a vintage or classic car is a suitable option.
You can find a variety of rental companies that offer vintage cars for weddings. Any of them can impress your guests and help you make it a memorable occasion.
If you’ve got the money, it can be the perfect time to rent a Rolls Royce Phantom, Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, Rolls Royce Ghost, Bramwith, or Chrysler 300c Limo. Other options include the Bentley Arnage, 1940s Austin Princess, Beauford, or Aston Martin.
These can be quite expensive to rent because they were considered luxury, expensive cars back when they were new.
The goal for a vintage wedding vehicle is to have something that’s not normally seen on the road. Of course, a 1965 Mustang or classic Nova isn’t necessarily seen often on the road, but there’s something about a Rolls with its fifth wheel and sleek design that screams wedding vehicle.
Of course, the vehicle you rent should be mechanically sound because you don’t want to risk injury after such a happy occasion. However, performance isn’t the factor to consider; you just got married and may want to take a leisurely drive to the reception hall. Plus, you are likely to give the guests time to arrive and set up for your welcome. Therefore, you don’t need a muscle or sports car. You want to focus on how it looks and how you look inside it.
Be prepared to drop around $1,000 on such vehicles. They’re classic and vintage because there aren’t many left and they likely cost a lot to maintain. You may also be required to buy insurance or pay a fee for insurance on the vehicle while you have it.
You should also call a few rental companies so that you can compare prices. Just make sure that they have the same vehicle at each location; you probably have something particular in mind and should ensure that they have it available.
Less Traditional Options
Americans may want to focus on American-made cars, but you might want to broaden your horizons and choose something European. You aren’t purchasing it for daily use; it’s a one-time event that is likely to be exciting. You might want to try something different to give the day a fairy-tale feeling.
The Karmann Ghia is a rarity and isn’t available from all rental companies. They were produced between 1955 and 1974 and are German. In fact, Karmann was the manufacturer who got purchased by Volkswagen.
The Mini Cooper is another vehicle that comes from the UK. The 1960s model looks amazing.
