Kent Wedding Car

Choosing the wedding car for your big day is just as important as any other decision you make for the day itself. There are lots of different types, makes, and models out there and so it’s good to ensure you’re picking the right one for your budget and preference as well as it being functional too. Here are some tips for choosing a wedding car.

Use a reputable company

Firstly, it’s always good to go with a reputable company that’s known to the industry, and that won’t let you down when you need them. It’s obviously important that your chosen car shows up and collects you when and where you need it. It’s good to use a company that’s organised so that you’ve got one less thing to think about when it comes to the wedding. It’s always best to do your research in order to find a good classic car hire in Kent. Barratts Classic Car Hire will always try to suite what ever needs a particular wedding requests.

See the car before booking

Just like you would when you buy a car for yourself, you’ll always request to see the car in person before you part ways with your money. The exact same thing should be said for your wedding car. It’s a good idea to get in touch with the wedding car supplier to check that it can be seen before deciding on hiring it out for your wedding day. When it comes to a Kent wedding car supplier, we have been established since 2003 and are more than happy to show off the car to you to inspect before making that wedding investment.

Try to match your wedding colours

A classic Mercedes hire is all well and good, but it has to suit your wedding theme. That’s something to consider when it comes to hiring a wedding car. You want it to match up with the rest of your wedding’s theme, so make sure you’re looking at the options in comparison with your colour scheme. There’s no point in getting something that’s going to clash with the style and look of your wedding. Whether it’s the wedding venue or even your dress, it’s all-important to pair correctly with one another. 

Consider the wedding dress

Another thing that needs to be factored in when it comes to your wedding car is the dress. Depending on the fit and style you go for, it needs to be able to fit inside the car itself. That means that you should get the dress first before picking your car. You don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you can physically get in or out of the car comfortably or without damaging your dress. Make sure you’re factoring in your dress!

Choosing a wedding car is exciting and can be a great addition to your day. Do your shopping around, factor in the other elements to the day, and enjoy the memorable ride.
