Getting married is probably the most significant decision, an event people will experience. A wedding should be an unforgettable day. And in this day and age with the popularity of cell phone cameras, social media, Instagram and whatever – the visual details matter. If you are traveling from say from home to Gurdwara or temple, and then on to a reception, a delightful wedding vehicle is a must to impress an audience and for the best visual impact.
Forget about borrowing your best friend’s nice car! Or begging a relative to lend you his new Mercedes, A wedding automobile should be even more special and not have to be some boring vehicle. If you are open-minded and want to express your freedom of spirit, choose a motor vehicle that will break all existing wedding rules. Why not choose something totally different?
Numerous wedding rental companies will offer you cool vintage wedding cars that will impress your guest’s thanks to their opulence and outstanding design. They are not cheap, but could really make your day. There’s not much to say when looking into wedding automobiles because most of the vintage ones are focused purely on visual design. It’s not like you’ll go racing on the highway, just after your marriage was officiated religiously. Therefore, in this case, technical specifications really have little to no importance. Remember beauty is more important than performance on this special wedding day.
Vintage Rolls Royce or Bentley
The most popular car by far for weddings. Any vintage Rolls Royce or Bentley is one of the best choices you can make for your wedding. All Rolls Royce’s are huge, stately cars that come with chauffeurs. And a Rolls Royce will take care of one of the biggest problems couples encounter when booking a vintage vehicle for their wedding – how to fit people in – Some Rolls Royce limos can accommodate up to 7 people in style – more than enough room for the new in-laws!
Classic American Vintage Cars
Any Vintage Cadillac, Chevrolet, or rarer model makes a real presence at any wedding. Nothing beat the sheer visual impact of a large pristine vintage American car – even better if it a convertible that can seat a few people. Recommended models include any year of Cadillac going right into the 1980s, and any American car made before 1970. Particular favorites are the 1940- 1059 Cadillacs due to their interior size, the 1957 Chevrolet and 1956 Ford Thunderbird for sheer visual impact. Muscle car fans like the 1965- 1970 Ford Mustang and the 1969 Camaro.
Vintage German Cars
German vintage cars are certainly the right choice. If you need small – check out the gorgeous Volkswagen Karman Ghia, a sleek two-seater that will cause a storm. An old Volkswagen Beetle will also do the trick. You can also look at hiring a vintage Mercedes Benz, from limousines to sleek two-seater convertibles from the SL series from the 1960s and 1970s.
Any model of Ferrari. They’re red, they’re wild, loud and as rare as possible. They only seat two, and rental rates can be scary, but even vintage Ferraris do speak the language of passion and poetry. If there is any car that will impress the most, this is it.
Best of British Vintage
Where to start, the choice is endless here! Vintage Jaguars, and Aston Martins for the racy inclined. Obscure marques such as Austin who do classic English style in the form of big sedans. Classic Mini Coopers are cheeky, and of course, the big Rolls Royce’s, Bentley’s and Daimlers as used by British Royalty—offer style, comfort, and space. There is pretty much something for everyone and at affordable rates.
If you really want to go out there, you can hire World War 2 era Jeeps, trucks, transporters, and track wheeled military vehicle to make a huge statement. But you must like army green as that’s the only color these vehicles come in. It is even possible to hire a tank for the day! The ultimate wedding vehicles by far.
