Some days are extra special and call for celebrations worth remembering. A wedding day is one such day. When you decide to tie the knot, the next big question is how you want to celebrate your wedding. One significant decision is selecting the right wedding car. A wedding car has to be something special. It should be beautiful, big, and well-maintained. It should be nicely decorated to reflect your happiness and joy. Car hire companies in the United Kingdom offer various vehicles and services at different rates. Many factors influence the total cost of wedding car hire. Some of the options include:
If you are a sports car enthusiast, what better way to celebrate your wedding than driving to and from your venue in a sports car? Car rental companies offer a variety of sports cars from world-renowned brands like Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari, and many others. Renting sports cars is relatively more expensive than other cars. The average cost can start from £500 and up, depending on which car you hire, the duration, and any other services you opt for. Your location `will also influence the cost of hiring a supercar. Make sure your better half is as enthusiastic about renting a supercar as you are. Also, remember that you cannot stuff people in a supercar, so the only ones who could enjoy the supercar are you and your wife.
Some people have a taste for Classic or vintage cars. If you are one of them, you can easily find several classic and vintage models of car makers like Rolls Royce, Aston Martin, Jaguar, and Bentley. Vintage cars can cost you anywhere from £120 to more than £300. Vintage or classic vehicles provide a unique experience and give your wedding celebrations a touch of novelty. However, remember that many of these models may be much slower than modern cars, and your trip from the wedding venue to your destination will take more time.
Given a chance, every couple would love to celebrate their wedding with luxury. Several car rental companies offer luxury vehicles with or without chauffeurs. These include the likes of Rolls Royce Wraith, Rolls Royce Phantom, Bentley Mulsanne, Jaguar, Mercedes S class, Range Rover, and many more. There are many advantages of hiring luxury vehicles:
Last but not least, they have many complimentary services you can enjoy. Your cost will depend on several factors such as; the car, your chosen services, location, and time and with these services you are expected to pay more than £300.
Noisy, muscular, and fuel-guzzling American cars are loved by many. Classics such as Cadillac Sedan, 1947 Chevy, and Mustang can be rented in the United Kingdom. These are unique options for wedding car hire, second to classic/vintage cars. They are usually bigger than British cars. However, because they are rather rare, you should expect the cost to be much higher than other cars. You will also have to make sure that these are well maintained. You don’t want your car to break down while heading from the wedding venue to your destination.
Rolls Royce is a name known around the world for its luxury, class, and performance. Several companies in the United Kingdom offer many Rolls Royce models, including Wraith, Phantom, and Ghost.

Make sure you do your homework.
Aston Martin, the famous James Bond brand, is another exotic car manufacturer with a heritage and a reputation. Finding an Aston Martin for your wedding may be a little more difficult than other brands. Their rarity makes car rental companies charge a premium price, and you can expect to pay anywhere from £500 to way above that.
Jaguar cars can be hired easily in the United Kingdom. You can find it in both classic and modern models. They are relatively more affordable than other luxury brands. Starting from £190, the price may go up based on different factors. You can conveniently find Jaguar 1961 MK2, MK V11, E-Type Zero, and other models.

These can be found easily in the United Kingdom and can be more affordable than many other brands. You can also easily avail of chauffeur services with Mercedes cars.
Most vehicles are five-seaters, which is why you will find countless makes and models with this seating capacity. Mercedes, Range Rover, Audi, and Rolls Royce, to name a few. You can even get a Volkswagen Campervan if you want to give a funny touch to your wedding.
Land Rover’s Discovery, Mercedes WW124, Daimler Empire, and many other modern and classic six-seaters can be found easily. These can come in handy if you have a large family and would need multiple cars to commute to and from the wedding venue. Depending on other factors, you are expected to pay an estimated amount ranging from £220 to £400.
Minivans such as the Mercedez Viano 7 are the perfect seven-seater. Other practical choices include C4 Picasso. You can hire a chauffeur or drive them yourself. They can prove to be cheap if you have a small budget.
If many people travel with you to your wedding venue and you also want to make a grand entry, then the ideal eight-seater vehicle is a stretch limo. Being very common, they can be found in every city across the United Kingdom. If you want to give it a classic touch, you can hire a White Daimler with a chauffeur and expect to get away with just £200. Another option is the Mercedes Benz V Class. Vehicles with more seats can be cost-effective and practical. Especially if you have to travel a long distance and you need multiple vehicles for your friends & family.
Apart from the type and number of vehicles you hire, other factors influencing your total cost include the distance the car would travel, especially if you have hired a chauffeur service. There are many benefits of hiring a chauffeur which includes:
However, it’s your choice to avail yourself of a self-driving service. We highly recommend availing of a chauffeur service for specialized cars you have never driven. Another factor influencing cost is the time you keep the car with you. The price will increase if you have planned stopovers from the wedding venue to your destination, such as an outdoor photoshoot, or you have a sightseeing plan. Decorating your vehicle will also have an additional but usually a nominal cost. Any other services you opt for besides complimentary services will increase your cost. Any damages to the car will also have to be borne by you. Do your homework well before you avail car hire services from any company. A comparative cost analysis of more than two companies can be useful and may help you save your cost.
