For the most important ride of your life, the possibilities are practically endless!
Once you have already planned all the other aspects of your wedding day (Reception venue, catering, flowers, hair do), do not forget to book for the transportation! Your wedding car is a significant factor in the wedding arrangements.
Figuring out wedding transportation can be indeed confusing...how many cars you need, who drives what, when, where and with whom...
Do not think only about yourself but enquire amongst your guests if there's someone who comes from far away and needs to be picked up...or if the reception venue is far away from the ceremony one a coach or a mini van might be necessary to transport the entire wedding party.
Many couple decide to use their personal car to cut cost, if this is also your choice make sure you'll have it clean thoughghly including the interiors and be careful with ribbons, balloons and other decorations... they must not be an obstruction to the drive.
Remember that the car you'll choose to take you from your parents home to the church and then at the reception venue must fit with your personal style and with the style of your wedding. Also, do not forget that the car that will drive you to your new happy life will set also the background for many photos you'll take on your wedding day so choose it carefully!And you might also like the driver to wear an appropriate attire!
So if you'll have a modern wedding go with a modern, comfortable, luxury car: a Mercedes class E or S, a Jaguar or a Limousine will be perfect. If you love it retro, classic and vintage and if you'll hold the reception in one of the prestigious historic villas or period palaces at Lake Maggiore why don't you decide for a Bentley or a Rolls Royce, a Cadillac or Beauford? .
And again if you want to play the princess role and you plan to get married in fairy-tale locations - such as a castle (Castello dal Pozzo, Castello di Miasino, Castello di Massino Visconti or Castello Visconteo di Vogogna are fantastic places where the lake or the mountain landscape matches with an ancient flair!) - renting a horse-drawn carriage is definetly the best way! There's something magically romantic about having a carriage pulled by two white horses, isn't there?
If you have a romantic reception on the Borromees islands or Isola di San Giulio you might simply adore the idea to make your grand arrival on a typical lake rowboat. For a pic-nic or a country style wedding why do not you consider a vespa motor bike or tandem bicycle, we're sure you and your husband will certainly have lots of fun and laugh all the tension away!
On the other hand if you want to make a posh and glamourous getaway a hot air baloon leaving from the garden of your grand hotel or an helicopter flight is an alternative option woth to be considered!
Whichever the wedding transportation you'll chose do it with adequate preparation and common sense. Start to search for a car hire agent as early as possible, we advice at least six months in advance if you're getting married during prom season (from May, June and September). Talk to several companies before you sign a contract or let your wedding planner think about it anyhow compare prices...there can be significant differences in costs between companies and do not just order a vehicle on-line - see it before you book it and make sure that is the actual care you'll be using on your wedding day!Be sure to check with the reception hall or site about their parking facilities and services and if they do not offer parking attendants consider hiring some.
Now that you've picked up the best transportation to your wedding day, sit back and enjoy the ride!!!
