Picking your vintage wedding day transport opens up whole realm of choices. Do you go glamorous or simple? Vintage or quirky? Do you try and find something you guests can use too? Whatever you pick your transports provides an amazing memory, a great photo opportunity and something you will only do once.
If you plan on getting married somewhere other than where you are staying the night before, then you’re more than likely going to need some form of wedding car or wedding transport on your big day. Some couples choose to order a number of different wedding cars for their wedding celebration, so that they can either transport a large wedding party to and from the venue or have different wedding cars for the bride and the groom.
Pick an iconic vintage vehicle such as a VW camper van, Beetle or Morris Minor and decorate it with floral garlands and banners for a great vintage wedding day choice. Simple and cost effect and a great way to show your personality.
Feeling a bit mod? How about leaving as man and wife on a retro scooter or motorbike and side-car? Make sure your man has a cool crash helmet and you have a gorgeous headscarf for keeping your hairstyle in place. Super cool!
For an option that will transport all your guests too, a vintage double decker bus ticks on the vintage wedding day boxes. Its iconic design looks amazing in wedding photos and it just feels like fun for a quirky British touch.
For a rustic style wedding, a pick up truck decorated in ribbons, flowers and tin cans can look just amazing. Remember shabby can work as well as pristine!
There’s something about a Rolls Royce that just screams glamour. There is a huge choice in vintage luxury cars with something for everyone but a Rolls…its so iconic, luxurious and beautifully designed. Embrace the car with the beautiful Art Deco ‘Spirit of Ecstasy’ hood ornament…you wont regret it.
For the ultimate in romance have your groom sail you away in a flower filled row boat. There is something magical, as if from a fairy-tale about it. Swoon…
We all know the romantic ditty ‘Daisy, Daisy’ ending in ‘a bicycle built for two’ so why not live it on your wedding days? A tandem is an adorable option or maybe two vintage bikes with ‘Just Married’ signs on them. Just remember to keep your dress out of the bike chain!
Whether you go big or small with your vintage wedding day transport, the visual impact can be just the same. A small car such a vintage Mini Cooper can look just wonderful and add a really cute element to your styling. Just don’t wear a huge wedding dress or your may never get out once you get in!
