Q: I’m currently trying to find transport for my big day and was wondering if you have any tips or advice when it comes to sourcing them?
When looking for wedding suppliers make sure you read up on the past reviews of the company and the awards they’ve won.
For example, I've won the 2017, 2018 and 2019 wedding transport supplier of the year because of how I conduct myself on social media, and not forgetting the style of vehicles I offer. Talking about social media, does the company regularly post all of their work? If so you can gain an insight on how the wedding cars look at venues and allows you to get ideas of the photos taken during the day. Ask to view the vehicles in person and book an appointment to inspect the wedding cars to know what you're getting. No one likes a surprise on the big day such as the wrong car or something that's badly looked after. There will be a chance to meet with the owner of the company and talk over any details of the day and details such as what ribbons are used. Try to think about who needs transport on the day – often cars will do two, sometimes three, trips in the same car.
But what if the car gets held up in traffic during the trips? This will then hold up the wedding service. Therefore try to book two or three vehicles if the budget allows so. If not, maybe consider a stretch limousine. It can seat up to eight passengers and is one of my most popular vehicles of choice for couples, not just on the seating capacity but its modern looks and how I dress it for a wedding with silk flowers along with the bar and window areas.
The colour of a wedding car can be overlooked and a lot of couples think it can only be white – but be daring and stand out. I now offer an alternative and classic vehicle in the form of a classic Rolls-Royce in lagoon blue to give a wider choice of cars and match the wedding colour of 2020. Lastly, think about what time of year your wedding will be held in – will the car keep you warm in winter? Cool in summer? And will it be easy to get in and out of especially on a windy or rainy day?
