Hiring a wedding car is not something that we do every day but as with many of life’s events, there are traditions and etiquette to follow and here is Mercedes Wedding Cars quick and simple guide to wedding car etiquette for Lanark couples:
Q. Where does the bride’s mother sit?
Traditionally the mother of the bride sits in the passenger seat of the wedding car, with the bridesmaids and other attendants sitting in the rear of the car. The chauffer on arrival at the wedding ceremony will alight the vehicle, opening the doors for the occupants to make their exit.
Q. Who goes in which car and in which order doe they arrive at the wedding ceremony?
The wedding cars will normally wait outside the venue until the happy couple and attendants are ready to leave for the reception.
Q. Where does the bride sit?
She sits in the back of the car, usually behind the passenger seat as the etiquette is the bride exits the side of the car nearest the pavement, never exiting the car into the road. This is the etiquette for all chauffer driven vehicles in which VIPs are present.
Q. Who leaves the wedding first?
Tradition dictates that the happy couple leave first in their wedding car, followed by the other wedding car party. Again, if you want to follow tradition to the latter, the best man should escort the newlyweds to their waiting wedding car.
Q. What happens if the wedding cars breakdown?
Reputable companies such as Mercedes Wedding Cars, local to Lanark, maintain their cars to a high standard and the modern nature of their executive vehicles make them incredibly reliable.
Q. Who calculates the final timings?
Local Lanark wedding car hire companies, such as Mercedes Wedding Cars will know the area incredibly well but they will usually drive the route to check timings. In the same way, the day you are marrying and the time may also impact on the traffic in the area.
Following tradition can be a welcome addition to your wedding day; book your perfect wedding cars for your Lanark wedding then sit back and enjoy your day.
Everything went great and thank you so much for the kind gift and champers!
