Wedding Car Tradition and Etiquette
We regularly get asked which members of the wedding party should travel in the wedding cars and our answer is always the same: it’s entirely up to you!
We understand that the formalities of traditional wedding etiquette may not suit modern couples and their families so always encourage couples to do what feels right for them. Remember, there are no set rules for your wedding day and we are more than happy to work with you to create the right package suited to your needs and budget.
To date, our largest wedding party has been 18 guests! This included the Bride and Father of the Bride, Groom and Best Man, the Groom’s parents, Mother of the Bride, three Bridesmaids, two flower girls, four pageboys, a granny and an auntie! However, for those couple who are keen to stick with tradition, we have included details of traditional wedding transportation etiquette below:
Traditionally, the Bride will travel in the bridal car with the Father of the Bride, or alternatively the family member, guardian or friend giving her away. The Mother of the Bride will accompany the Bridesmaids and flower girls in a second car. The Groom and Best Man travel together to the ceremony and will arrive early in order to greet guests with their Ushers. Ushers may travel with the Groom and Best Man or make their own way to the ceremony and will arrive first in order to greet guests. The Groom’s Parents traditionally make their own way to the ceremony.
Looking for wedding transportation can be daunting as there a so many styles of vehicle to choose from, however wedding transport suppliers can play a key role in your day, helping you to make a magnificent entrance/exit. Remember, selecting the right wedding car company should take away some of the stress of planning your wedding and not add to it. A lot of our wedding business come from word of mouth recommendations and we are grateful to our couples for posting lovely reviews or sending thank you cards which are posted in the ‘Testimonials‘ section of our website. We encourage you to read reviews of any supplier you are thinking of booking!
