Making sure everyone gets to where they should be on the Big Day can be a nightmare.
Some people make their own way from point A to B but, the wedding entourage seems to be growing by the day and thus, hiring wedding cars for your Renfrewshire day can all of a sudden, become an almost monstrous task.
Who goes where, and with whom and when, are all key questions that need answering but, we have the ultimate guide to help you…
The first thing you need to work out is how many are in the bridal party that need transportation to the ceremony and then on to the reception.
Tradition is one thing, and you may be following this, but increasingly modern-day couples are doing things very differently. However, in the main, the following people will normally be accommodated in wedding cars for Renfrewshire based nuptials:
Bride and groom – have one car and will normally be last to leave the home, and arrive at the ceremony.
Bride’s mother and bridesmaids will normally arrive at the ceremony as one large group – bearing in mind the size of the bridesmaids dresses (or not!), you may only be able to accommodate 3 bridesmaids per car. So the bigger your entourage, the more cares you will need.
From ceremony to reception – in this case, the wedding party will increase by 1: the groom. Tradition dictates that groom, best man and ushers all make their way to the ceremony on their own merit. In other words, the best man is responsible for getting the groom to the venue. Once he is married, the happy couple travel on together leaving the best man slightly adrift as he is expected to make his own to the reception.
Take a romantic detour – many couples assume that the journey from ceremony to reception has the take in the most direct route. But, rather than you welcoming your guests, it should be the other way round. Guests welcome the newly married couple in to their midst and, as such, your guests should be at the venue before the couple.
Why not take in romantic sights, such as the place you met, the place you went on your first date or the place where the bride was asked to marry her groom?
Everything went great and thank you so much for the kind gift and champers!
