Vintage Vows: Planning a Classic Car Wedding Procession

Say Goodbye to Boring Processions

Forget about the string of dull white limousines or the horse-drawn carriage that has had one too many laps around the block. It is time to step up your wedding procession game, my friends. Imagine a parade of classic cars cruising down the streets, turning heads and inciting envy in everyone who witnesses the spectacle. Let me guide you through the process of planning a classic car wedding procession that will make your nuptials the talk of the town.

Choose Your Rides Wisely

First things first, let's talk about the stars of the show. You'll want to decide on your vehicles of choice to suit your wedding's theme and your own personal style. Are you a fan of sleek and sexy European sports cars, or perhaps the raw power and beauty of American muscle? Maybe you prefer a touch of elegance with a luxury sedan or the charm of a vintage truck. Whatever your preference, there's a classic car to fit the bill. Some popular options include:
  • 1957 Chevy Bel Air
  • 1966 Ford Mustang
  • 1969 Dodge Charger
  • 1972 Lamborghini Miura
  • 1955 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith

Find a Reputable Classic Car Rental Company

Now that you've got your heart set on the perfect set of wheels, it's time to find a rental company that can make your dreams come true. Research is key here; you'll want to find a company that specializes in classic cars and has a variety of options to choose from. Look for reviews and testimonials from previous customers to ensure they are reliable and trustworthy. After all, this is your big day, and you don't want any surprises, unless they involve finding a pot of gold in the glove compartment.

Timing and Logistics

This part may not be as glamorous as picking out your dream cars, but it's crucial for a smooth and successful procession. You'll need to consider the timeline of your big day, from pre-ceremony photos to the grand entrance at your reception. Make sure you allot enough time for each segment, and be prepared for any hiccups along the way (traffic, flat tires, or the occasional detour to a 24-hour diner for a celebratory milkshake). Additionally, confirm with your chosen rental company the exact pickup and drop-off times, locations, and any extra fees that may apply for overtime or additional mileage.

Designate Your Drivers

Unless you've managed to secure a fleet of self-driving classic cars (and if you have, please invite me to this wedding), you'll need to designate drivers for each vehicle. This could be a fun opportunity for close friends or family members who aren't part of the wedding party to be involved in your day. Alternatively, some rental companies may offer chauffeur services for an additional fee. Just make sure your drivers are responsible and comfortable behind the wheel of a classic car; you wouldn't want your grand entrance to be upstaged by an impromptu demolition derby.

Add Some Personal Flair

Now that you've got your ducks in a row, or more accurately, your classic cars revving their engines, it's time to add a touch of personalization to your procession. Consider decorating your vehicles with flowers, streamers, or custom license plates to match your wedding theme or color scheme. Just be sure to check with the rental company about any restrictions on decorations or potential damage to the cars. Remember, there's a fine line between adding some pizzazz and turning your beautiful classic car into a parade float gone awry.

Don't Forget the Photos

Last but not least, make sure your photographer is prepared to capture the magnificence of your classic car wedding procession. Your guests may never stop talking about it, but having stunning photos to look back on will ensure the memory of your grand entrance (or exit) remains forever etched in your hearts, and on your mantel, and potentially as the wallpaper on your phone.With these tips in mind, you're well on your way to planning a classic car wedding procession that will leave your guests in awe. So buckle up, and get ready for the ride of your life!
