Is there a protocol for wedding cars?

There isn’t a strictly enforced legal protocol for wedding cars, but there is a traditional etiquette that most couples choose to follow. Here’s the customary order of arrival and who typically travels in each car…

The groom’s party traditionally arrives at the ceremony venue with his best man and sometimes other grooms men in a separate car. This could be a luxury car, a classic car, or something else that complements the overall wedding style.

Whereas the bride typically arrives last in a separate car, often accompanied by her father (or whoever is giving her away) Some brides might also decide to have their bridesmaids travel in the same car.

Unless the wedding is following a specific theme, or transport isn’t an aspect the couple are bothered about, a minibus can be used. However, they are usually used by guests who are travelling in large groups, or from a long distance.

Can any vehicle be used as a wedding car?

In theory, yes. Weddings generally follow a classic or vintage theme when it comes to vehicles, or in modern times, luxury vehicles are also used. However, it isn’t a rule that is set in stone. If the wedding has a particular theme, then any vehicle can be used. Just make sure you check with the bride and groom first before committing to any vehicle choices!

The benefits of hiring a minibus for a wedding

There are various advantages to hiring a minibus for wedding guest transportation, making it a popular choice for couples planning their big day. Here are the benefits:

Convenience and Comfort:

  • Group Transportation: A minibus can comfortably transport a larger group of guests, compared to using multiple cars. This eliminates the hassle of coordinating a carpool or relying on individual guests to navigate to the venue.
  • Relaxation for Guests: Guests can relax and enjoy the journey together without worrying about driving, parking, or directions. This allows them to arrive at the wedding feeling refreshed and ready to celebrate.

Reduced Stress for the Couple:

  • Logistics Simplified: Hiring a minibus takes the burden of coordinating guest transportation off the couple’s shoulders. They can focus on other wedding planning aspects without worrying about carpooling arrangements or potential delays.
  • On-Time Arrivals: With a professional driver and planned route, a minibus helps ensure guests arrive at the venue on time, minimizing any disruptions to the wedding schedule.

Additional Advantages:

  • Cost-Effective: Depending on the number of guests and distance involved, hiring a minibus can be a more cost-effective option compared to individual car rentals or taxis, especially for larger groups.
  • Time to get to know each other: The shared travel experience on a minibus can encourage interaction and bonding amongst guests who might not otherwise know each other. This can add to the festive atmosphere of the wedding celebration.
  • Accommodating Special Needs: Some minibuses may be equipped with features to accommodate guests with disabilities, ensuring everyone can participate comfortably in the wedding festivities.
How to decide the best minibus for me

Here are some important factors to consider when deciding if a minibus is right for your wedding:

  • How many guests are travelling?: Consider the total number of guests you need to transport to determine the appropriate minibus size.
  • Where is the wedding Location?: If the wedding venue has limited parking or is difficult to access by car, a minibus can be a more practical option.
  • What is the budget? : Compare the cost of minibus rental to other transportation options like taxis or individual car rentals to see if it fits your budget.
  • Is the aesthetic important?: Some minibus companies offer minibuses in various colours or with decorative options to complement the wedding theme.
