Opting for a white wedding? Then you are following in the trend setting footsteps of Queen Victoria. Marrying her prince in 1840, she wore a white wedding gown; before this, the bride simple wore their ‘best dress’.
But your dress is only one decision you will have to make for your big day; another important decision is hiring the best wedding car company in Glasgow so here are some useful hints and tips to avoid potential transport disaster…
NEVER book the cheapest one – unless you are a) supremely confident or b) you have seen the car or cars. Cheap may not always equal brilliant car maintenance or be the top, professional company with a delightful chauffeur that can really add to your wedding journey. AND, always make sure the car you are looking at IS the one being used on the day.
Know what is included in the price – after all, without ribbons and flowers, you may as well just have ordered a taxi. You want to know if these are included and specify the colour if you can, to match your colour scheme for the day.
Ask them about breakdowns – but more to the point, what happens if this does happen (cars do breakdown, as much as any wedding car company in Glasgow would want to avoid it). For example, is there a replacement car? Compensation?
Get a proper cost breakdown – you also need to be clear with the wedding car company in Glasgow about the arrangements for the day. Hiring one car is fine, but if it needs to do several trips back and forth the cost will start to creep up. As wedding logistic experts, why not ask how they could solve the transport problems of your day?
Experience is everything – and sometimes nothing too! Take care with companies who promise the earth as they have been in business since the year dot, as well as those ‘starting out’. Talk to the wedding car company in Glasgow and get a feel for how they manage and run their business, as well as how much they value your custom too.
Insurances – any wedding car company in Glasgow need not only car insurance, but Public Liability etc. Check it out as you never know…
View the cars – the glossy photos and flashy websites do not show everything; in fact, they show you want you want to see. Pop along and see the cars and check out that they do all the things you want them to do on your big day.
Ask the questions – ask, for example, whether the car will be used for another wedding the same day. You do not want to arrive in a hurry and leave in a rush because the car has to be at wedding number 2 down the road or, your car being late because the first wedding over ran.
The chauffeur – what makes the experience of being driven on your wedding day is the luxury of a chauffeur. Ask what they will be wearing – after all, you want them in a smart suit and ‘looking every inch the part’.
Everything went great and thank you so much for the kind gift and champers!
