What a lot of people disregard or do not consider is that classic cars are not very practical for a smooth perfect ride, unlike one you could get in a Bentley of Rolls Royce. Furthermore as they are vintage models, they will not come with the gadgets and accessories that we take for granted in modern cars, including air conditioning. And in a small cramped space especially with a bride in a dress, without modern comfortable seating, will that put you off how rich in history the car could be?

Also does your wedding fit a theme? As the car can really compliment the setting and occasion if you have a certain theme throughout the day, or you can choose it to compliment you and your partners outfits.

Choosing a car for your big day can really stress you out and often people forget the simple things, that can have you stressing on your big day. To avoid this remember to check availability of cars, as wedding car companies are booked up months in advance. Also know what times you will be using the car for, to give the company time to schedule you into their bookings. It is wise to maybe have the car an hour or two longer as this can avoid last minute stress when handing it back. Also make sure to check if the company provides a chauffeur as this will mean you will know, whether to find a last minute driver or have your transport immediately sorted for the day.

Remember to always allow plenty of time, and that can apply to any part of wedding planning. Always be aware of the simple things people often forget, such as will the bride even fit in the car with her dress on? When doing everything in advance it can really help relieve stress and allow for your perfect day, to be perfect!
