The arrival of the bride to her wedding is always so exciting. The guests are eager to see how she looks and what she is wearing. Make the big reveal even more impressive by using some amazing wedding day transport
Hiring wedding day transport is the most popular way to get around on the day, with many options available to suit your wedding theme, style and budget.
Where to start?
Work out what type of transport you are after, something:
– large or small
– modern or classic
– usual or unique
Choosing and booking the right supplier
- Make sure you do your research and look around until you find a reputable supplier to perfectly fit your wedding style
- Look through all the options available and select the one you like the most
- Contact the supplier to check availability and ask any questions you may have
- If you want to view the vehicle, ask if they have a showroom OR if they are attending any upcoming wedding expos
Once you’ve found your supplier:
- Book them as soon as possible – six to twelve months is ideal so you don’t miss out
- Complete any booking forms required and make sure you have all the pickup details correct to avoid confusion
- Confirm the booking in the lead up to your wedding day if they haven’t contacted you prior
Budget and packages
Sometimes fitting your dream transport option into your budget can be tricky:
- Look around for local suppliers close to where you are getting married who can also offer great value for money
- Look for packages that include everything you need
- Booking suppliers at expos or when they have a sale is also great for the budget – but be prepared to book on the spot / within booking terms if you want the deal
