Getting married is a life-changing decision. Often, couples taking this leap forward will want their wedding to be an unforgettable experience. Believe it or not, every detail matters, and out of all the people that are involved in the process, brides will know it best.
Travelling from church to the place of the party can be a problem if you haven’t rented a decent wedding car. Hence, we compiled a list of the top classic wedding cars that are bound to catch the eye and impress the audience.
Which Wedding Car Should You Choose?
First of all, we have to make one thing clear – There is a popular belief that wedding automobiles have to be luxury vehicles. Keep in mind that this is your wedding, not your parents. If you are open-minded and wish to express your freedom of spirit, choose a car that will break all existing wedding rules. If, on the other hand, you are more of a classical individual, have a pick from the models that we will discuss later.
Classic Cars For Weddings
There are numerous wedding rental companies that exist worldwide. Some will offer you cool vintage wedding cars that will impress your guest’s thanks to their opulence and outstanding design. If you have enough money to spend, we recommend the following models:
- Rolls Royce Phantom
- Rolls Royce Ghost
- Rolls Royce Silver Cloud
- Chrysler 300c Limo
There is not much to say when looking into wedding automobiles because most of the vintage ones have to focus on design. It’s not like you will go racing on the highway, just after your marriage was officiated religiously. Therefore, in this case, technical specifications really have little to no importance. Surely you don’t want to ride in a car that risks dismembering, but remember beauty is more important than performance on this special wedding day.
These are 5 other classic wedding cars you might want to get your hands on:
- 1940s Austin Princess
- Bentley Arnage
- Aston Martin
- Beauford – 1930s Open Tourer
- A simple horse and carriage
Want A Less Traditional Wedding Car?
Though the charm of vintage cars has been increasingly popular amongst weddings, some couples still prefer something a little less conventional. On that account, these are a few alternatives to consider when deciding on your wedding transport.
Karmann Ghia: This model is a true rarity. Karmann is an ancient German manufacturer which was purchased by Volkswagen sometime around the middle of the 20th century. The Ghia was among the most acclaimed vehicles of its time (1955 to 1974) and surprisingly, it became the most imported car model in the US.
MINI Cooper: It really doesn’t matter if you opt for the 1960s model or for a more recent one because the Mini will never go out of fashion. This vehicle comes all the way from the United Kingdom. It may not be extremely powerful, but, just as we said in the beginning of the article, we can only presume you don’t need a super-speedy wedding car. That is unless you are a runaway bride or groom.

Lamborghini Gallardo: Lamborghini has had its share of popularity in the 1980s. Nowadays, the manufacturer is mostly esteemed for producing fast cars. Think of your wife’s veil hanging out the window of this model, while you’re going 100+ mph.
Any model of Ferrari: They are red, they are wild and they are as rare as possible. Furthermore, Ferraris speak the language of passion and poetry: Italian. Want to feel like you are really living the most of your day? Play some Puccini in this high-class rental.
