7 important tips for hiring a classic or vintage car for your wedding

How long does a wedding take?

Everything about a wedding takes time. A lot of time. You’ll want to take your time and savour every moment of the big day. Make sure to book your car to arrive with plenty of time for you to get in the car (which can sometimes be tricky if you are wearing a crisp suit or a big wedding dress!).


The photographer and the wedding car

Wedding cars are often used as a backdrop to create spectacular, idyllic wedding day photos. A professional photographer will know exactly how to use the car for the very best images. But it is up to you to choose the vehicle you’d like to accompany you on these most memorable moments!
BookAClassic has a large and varied collection of classic and vintage cars to choose from, ready to fulfill your wedding car dreams!

Veteran cars and long wedding trips

A beautiful old BookAClassic vintage car from the 1920s, such as a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost, is an ideal, romantic wedding car. However, you should be aware that they often have a maximum speed of 30-50 mph. Therefore, you need to take into consideration that journeys can take longer when booking older, vintage cars. General running classic cars (cars that are more than 35 years old) go from about 40-60 mph.

Sports cars

It may be that your dream arrival at your wedding ceremony includes a vintage James-Bond style Aston Martin. Sleek and stylish sports cars can seem romantic, but do note that these cars usually have little leg room, and very few have normal-sized back seats, if any. Keep in mind when booking a car that you may want to have enough space for a wedding dress, long legs, or with big wedding dresses, bouquets and high heels. So before you look at small sports cars, it’s important to examine whether there is room for an elegant entry and exit from the car!

Open wedding cars and the weather

In the summer sun, there aren’t many more romantic ways to arrive and leave your venue than in a beautiful open top car. But be aware that a light shower could ruin the perfect wedding drive! Make sure that the vehicle has a retractable roof in case of rain, as classic cars are a bit more likely to be affected by heavy rain.

Chauffeur attire

The chauffeur for the wedding drive will typically be discreetly yet elegantly dressed. Please make sure to relay your ideal dress code for the chauffeur ahead of your special day!

Champagne and decorations

You may want to have some ribbons, decorations, or even champagne to make your wedding day drive that much more special. Some offer these extras and some will allow you to bring your own. Be sure to speak to the chauffeur ahead of time to make sure you are all on the same page.
