Planning your wedding transport from start to finish

Top wedding transport tips to get you to the church on time

Wedding travel may seem simple to plan, but you’ll find there’s much to consider to get it perfect. Sussex Chauffeurs share their top tips to plan travel for your big day:

Book early

You may think it’s a given, but it’s important to get your wedding travel sorted as soon as you’ve picked your date and venue. Book your travel even before you buy your dress, as you don’t want to miss out on your special car.

Your photos

Talk to your photographer about logistics and see if he/she can travel with you in the car. If so, you could capture some precious moments of bride and father before the marriage or of the happy couple sharing a private moment on their busy day. You’ll keep these photos forever, so it’s worth getting the most out of them by making each setting extra special.

Wedding party

How many cars do you need? If you have a separate wedding and reception venue, think about how your party will get from one to the other. You may want your bridesmaids and groomsmen to follow in similar luxury cars whilst organising a taxi company for family and friends.

Resist trends

Don’t follow trends. Make your wedding all about you and your partner’s personalities. If you live in the city, you could hire a big red vintage bus to take you and your guests from your wedding venue to your reception. If you both enjoy sophistication, hire a modern Mercedes to take you from A to B with champagne and all the luxury you could imagine. It’s your big day, treat yourself.

Honeymoon bliss

Take one more burden off your mind and book a car service to and from the airport. You’ll be able to breathe a sigh of relief when you remember that there’s a luxury car to pick you up after your stay away. Sussex Chauffeurs offer airport transfers as well as wedding day travel, so check this with your chosen provider.
