Your Chauffeur-Driven Wedding Car Questions Answered

2019 wedding season is in full swing at Midlux Chauffeurs, so we thought we would put together some of our most frequently asked wedding car hire questions. There is so much to plan for your big day, from the venue, the cake, flowers, entertainment, food, favours and table plans, so don’t let private hire wedding transport be a stressful item on your wedding to-do list. Arriving in style is what can really make your day that extra bit special. Choosing a luxurious wedding car to make that moment unique will guarantee happy memories that last a lifetime.

  1. What time should the wedding car arrive?

It’s important to not feel stressed on your wedding day, at Midlux Chauffeurs our team of experts can advise on the best route for your wedding party, whether it’s transporting the bride, bridal party, the groom, ushers or family and guests. We advise to be on the safe side to ensure you reach the venue with plenty of time and a chance to compose yourself before the big event. It’s also a good opportunity for some last minute photography before the happy couple see each other. For a church wedding we advise to arrive a few minutes before the ceremony is due to start, for civil ceremonies the couple will usually need to arrive 15 minutes prior in order to meet the registrar.

  1. Should I decorate the wedding car?

We recommend you keep it very simple, whether it’s a modern or vintage car you are hiring. At Midlux Chauffeurs we can match the car ribbons to your theme or keep it elegant and traditional with a classy ivory ribbon, a timeless look across all of our fleet. There’s room for a beautiful flower display on the parcel shelves, but make sure if the car you are hiring is vintage or a convertible it has a parcel shelf. Also if it’s going to be a hot day remember to choose a flower which won’t easily wilt. With wedding car decoration, less is definitely more.

  1. When should I book my wedding car?

To avoid disappointment the sooner you can book the better, but at Midlux Chauffeurs we will always do all we can to accommodate your request. We have a fleet of modern and vintage luxurious vehicles available to book for wedding car hire. If you are looking to create a timeless sense of occasion and make a statement then our classic Rolls Royce is the wedding car for you, but as a popular choice this can get booked up quickly. For peace of mind, enquire today here!

  1. How many wedding cars do I need to book?

At Midlux Chauffeurs we find most couples book one car to the ceremony. The car could then be used to transport the happy couple to the reception venue. The photographer may come along in the car or follow closely behind with a short stop for additional photographs, while your guests make their way to the wedding reception and enjoy their first fizz of the day. If you decide to opt for two wedding cars, then other members of the wedding party or close family could travel together.

  1. Can I hire a wedding bus?

Yes, hiring wedding buses with Midlux Chauffeurs is simple. Whether you are looking for a modern party bus or a classic coach we can help you find the vehicle you want. Wedding buses are a popular mode of transport if the wedding ceremony is a long distance from the wedding reception, or if there are limited car parking spaces at each venue. Also they are a great way to let guests relax and enjoy a drink without worrying about driving.

  1. Can I cancel my wedding car?

Always check the terms and conditions or cancellation policy before you book.  At Midlux Chauffers we will ask you for a small deposit at the time of booking, which will be non-refundable in event of cancellation. Some wedding car hire companies will charge you a large proportion of the total hire cost if you cancel within two or three months of the wedding date, others will only charge you if you cancel a few weeks before the wedding so check before booking. If you take out wedding insurance this will probably cover you if a cancellation is due to a medical or another serious reason, but check your policy.

  1. How can I save money on my wedding car hire?

If you are planning to provide wedding transport for your wedding party, subject to distance and journey times you could do a couple of trips with the same vehicle. The less mileage the car has to make and the less time it takes, the less it will cost. We recommend when looking for wedding car hire try to choose a firm based close to your wedding venue.
