Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, Limousines Unlimited offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

Does the groom normally pay for the wedding car?

Traditionally a generation or so ago it was part of standard procedure for the groom to pay for the wedding car/s but times have changed and it is very common for the bride and groom to set a budget (using their own funds and/or contributions from both sets of parents) and use these funds to cover all costs.

Of course the bride is always right, so if she thinks the groom should pay........

Does it matter if the wedding car doesn't go with my colour scheme?

I haven't found any in the colour I want- should I just go with another colour? :)

`While it would be great to have a colour match it is more important that you have the style and size of vehicle to suit yourself and bridal party. It would be unusual to have any colour of vehicle clash badly with bridesmaids dresses etc to the point that it is an overriding issue. "Common" colours such as white and silver blend in well with almost anything but other colours would be fine - they are a (sort of) separate part of the overall wedding experience.

Horse and carriage - but should i book a car as well ?

I want to book a horse and carriage take me to myy ceremony. do you think ill be able to use it all day and night or should I also book a wedding car to give the horse a break lol

We here at Limousines Unlimited have been involved in many weddings where the bride and her father and sometimes the head bridesmaid have used the horse and carriage for transport from a setup area usually no more than a kilometre from the ceremony venue. We have followed in the limo with the other bridesmaids and remained for the photo shoots etc after the ceremony and the horse and carriage has finished after dropping the bride to the ceremony. If the ceremony, photo venues and reception are all within a reasonable area to suit horse and carriage arrangement it could work. You could check with the horse and carriage firms and see what they think.

Children in wedding cars

Do infants, flower girls, page boys etc require car seats if travelling in a limo? My daughter will be 7 months, can she travel with us or will I need to organize for someone else to drive her?

We have no problem with catering for children in our stretch limos. The Transport Department of West Australia has an exemption for Charter Vehicle Licence (CVL) vehicles for using baby/child seats so the option is yours. The exemption states that a young child (in your case a 7 month old) is required to be restrained by a seat belt wearing adult and an older child must wear a seat belt as all passengers are required to do. We can also supply child seats if you prefer or fit yours for you for the duration of hire.

what is the best car to be chauffeured in for your wedding?

My partner and I don't know much about cars so please help us!

The choice is yours! The best advice we can offer is to hire a firm which has the correctly licenced and insured vehicles and chauffeurs. Using friends may be more cost effective but do they have all the insurances etc in place "just in case"?

As far as style, size, colour etc the choices range dramatically. In the end the bride and groom may choose to travel in one sedan and lead the larger bridesmaids and groomsmen's vehicle or have everyone in a stretch limo and party in the one vehicle. Hiring one vehicle is more cost effective than two but that comes down to your budget etc. We quite often have our limos pick up the groom first, drop them to the ceremony venue and then pick up the bride. Of course this come down to times and distances etc.

Do I need wedding cars for the guys too?

Or do just the girls use them? we have a large bridal party and I'm not sure whether it's worth us all getting fancy cars.

We quite often have the same limo pick up the groom and groomsmen first and drop them to the ceremony venue and then pick up the bride. Of course this depends on times and distances because the groom is waiting while we return with the bride. If the bride is, say, fifteen minutes away from the ceremony venue the groom is waiting half an hour which is fine and a little longer is quite common also.

What are the white ribbons on wedding cars for? Can I ask for them to be removed?

I don't know if I like them

The ribbons are optional and your wish is our command! We have a range of colours if you wish to match bridesmaids gowns OR leave them off altogether.

How do the bride and groom leave the reception?

How does the bride and groom leave the reception? Do we need to hire a car to pick us up after the event or have someone else drive us home, or just Uber it??

In most cases the newlyweds getaway car is not included but some firms offer a discount deal if you have booked them during the day. Some reception centres offer a car as well.

Are guests normally allowed to eat/drink/smoke in the vehicle?

No smoking in the vehicles at any time. Alcohol is permitted in limos WA in and light refreshments/nibblies are welcome. Bottled water always supplied.

How long before my wedding should I book my wedding cars?

Once your budget is set and ceremony and reception venues locked in the transport should be sorted. Weekend weddings are a busy time for wedding transport and around 9 - 12 months notice should get you the vehicle/s you prefer. Weekday weddings can be a little more flexible.
