There are so many ways you can benefit with wedding cars but there may be some things crop up you didn’t account for. Being ready for just about anything is a good idea. Then you won’t be stressed and you can get over those little humps in the road. If you do have an issue, let your driver know. They realise how important your wedding is to you and they want to help.
They may have dealt with similar issues in the past, and they will have good solutions to help you get things back on track. Find out if you can have food and drinks in the wedding cars. They are often allowed, and some providers will even stock them with an assortment of snacks and beverages. Others don’t allow it though so you should find out before you assume it is fine.
Know the Car
While you pick out the car for the wedding, think about what you will be wearing. This is more of a concern for the bride than the groom. Some vehicles are quite low to the ground and you want to protect your dress. Others have a step on them and that can be tricky in certain shoes. You may need to evaluate the best option so you can gracefully get in and out of the vehicle.
The driver should be able to accommodate you too. Often, they will come around and open the door. They will also lend and hand for each passenger to make it easier for them to get in and out of the vehicle. It is a good idea to ask if such a service is offered from your provider.
It is a good idea to have your photographer picked up with the wedding cars. They are going to be a huge part of the record of your event so don’t leave them out. At the very least, make sure they are at the location of the wedding when you arrive in the vehicles. Then they can capture some candid photos of you arriving to get ready for your day.
They should also be right there when the wedding is over and you are getting into the wedding cars afterwards. After all, that will be one of the first moments of the two of you as a married couple. Such photos are going to be ones you treasure due to their significance.
Follow Up with Arrangements
You may have secured your wedding cars months in advance, but you still need to follow up. Touch base with the provider about a month before your wedding day. Tell them you just want to make sure it is still all on schedule. It only takes a few minutes and it will put your mind at ease. They don’t mind you checking on it at all!
Create a call sheet that has the addresses and phone numbers of all who will be using the wedding cars. The driver should have a clear address and time to pick them up. If they don’t answer the door, they may be worried. They need to have a home and cell number to call them and see where they are. Hopefully, it won’t be an issue but those numbers help if it does.
Without a call sheet, the driver may have no choice but to leave without them and go pick up the next person. This may be necessary for them to stay on schedule. They may be trying to call you to get details about someone and that can create stress for you. Give them the details they need at their fingertips to save time and delays.
