You need to consider a range of things on your big day and your transport should be at the top of the list, it is arguably the most important aspect of keeping your day running smooth. Getting to the church or venue on time is crucial for walking down the aisle on time.

It’s not always easy to find the perfect person for any job, but this list it will make your search much easier! See below for what we think are the most important factors in finding that perfect person to provide transportation on one of life’s biggest days.

View The Cars First

Choosing the wedding car that will be perfect for your day is a big decision, with so many different cars to choose from. Whether you are looking for a modern car or a traditional old school vehicle. One thing we recommend when thinking about wedding cars, go and see any potential options, by doing this you are giving yourself the chance to check the condition of the car and also the feel for the vehicle.

Sitting in the car will allow you to get a feel for the space you will have and how comfy the car will be, it is a great way of helping you make an informed chance. By taking the time to go and view the wedding cars, you may also find something you didn’t consider before, you will find the perfect car for your wedding day by viewing, testing and speaking to the drivers. Taking away a lot of worries when it comes to what type of car will turn up on the day.

Take Your Dress Into Account

Chauffeurs of wedding cars understand that everyone chooses different wedding dresses, sometimes they can be big beautiful princess dresses if this is the case you need to take that into account when you are choosing your wedding car. You need to make sure your wedding dress fits! Another reason to take your dress into account is that if the car is too low, or too high depending on the fit of your dress, you might struggle to get in and out of the wedding car comfortably.

One extra tip we can give you here at We Drive Global is when you go for your wedding dress fittings, we recommend sitting down and practising to see what level of movement you have when sat down. This will not only help you understand how the dress fits in general, but it will also help with the car drive and also the rest of the wedding day like the breakfast.

Do You Want It To Match Your Colour Scheme?

Our team at We Drive Global have found over the years that wedding cars are in a lot of photos! Have you considered matching the car to your colour scheme? Taking your colour scheme and also the theme for the day into account when choosing the style or colour of the car is just as important as choosing the flowers. You need to find a car that will compliment you and your dress.

We think finding a car that matches your whole wedding aesthetic will complete the overall image you had in mind for your day.

Use A Well Known Chauffeur

The worst thing that can happen on your wedding day is your chauffeur not turning up on time, or not turning up at all. When you start your search for a wedding car hire service, the best thing you can do is read reviews, speak to people who have used the company and also speak to the team themselves. This will give you an overall feel of the company and help you make an informed decision about whether they are a reputable team to use.

We Drive Global to recommend using companies you have heard of, or ones that come highly recommended, our team are known in the area for our service, you should always look for that when it comes to a wedding car chauffeur service. Another way of finding a reputable company is by speaking to your venue, they will more than likely be able to recommend firms that are regularly used by brides using their property.

Do You Want To Provide For The Whole Bridal Party?

When it comes to transport for your wedding day you need to make the decision of who is being counted in as part of the transport party. For example, some people only hire one car for the bride and father of the bride traditionally. But there is the option to choose a number of cars if you wish to include the whole bridal party. Here at We Drive Global we understand that budget comes into play with this top tip, it can become expensive transporting everyone to the venue, but we also understand that every wedding has different needs.

Will Your Driver Look Smart?

When it comes to all of the efforts that go into a wedding to make sure everyone looks smart and coordinated, it might be important to you to have a driver in a suit. We Drive Global to have the experience to know that it does matter what the driver is wearing, so we will always ensure our drivers match your colour scheme or wear a plain black suit, this way they look the part.

Some brides like their driver to wear a buttonhole to match the bridal parties flowers, or others will prefer the traditional chauffeur look, a hat, gloves and suit. This is always a must-have conversation before the day, you need to confirm with the driver what they are going to be wearing. It has happened over the years where we have heard about chauffeurs turning up in jeans and a t-shirt. Which is not acceptable attire for a wedding chauffeur.
