Do you think I could ask for black ribbons on my wedding car?

Hi There,

Whilst it is a unique request, some businesss will certainly cater for your needs. We offer custom wedding ribbons as add added addition as part of our service and organising black ribbons ishouldnt be a problem.

Further to this we can also add custom writing on your ribbons which we then post to you after ther wedding.

How do I coordinate wedding cars with my "first look" photos?

I want to do a first look, but I can't figure out how to handle the logistics. The first look, ceremony and reception are all close together (Sydney inner west). The ceremony (time bride walks in) is at 4:30. I thought we'd do the first look at 3:00, then do shots with the wedding party before travelling as one group to the ceremony. When do I book the car for? Can bride and groom ride with the two photographers to the first look and have the wedding party meet us after portraits are done in the cars? I don't want to make everyone come along to the first look just to wait around in a car, and I also don't want to book extra cars just for the first look. How would you transport everyone?

Hi there, 

The time the cars rare booked is determined by when the bride and groom want to leave the starting point before leaving for the first look destination.

My suggestion for this is that the bride and groom get picked up at seperately (car A & car B ) and head to the first look meeting spot.

Option 1 - Have car A hang around for photos and then car B and cars C, D etc (pending bridal party size) to go and be picked up and brought back to meet car A for the photos:

230 (Car A) - Bride and photographer picked up

230 (Car B) - Groom and photographer picked up

300 - Meet at first look spot

315 - Car B & other cars pickup bridal party

345 - Bridale party arrive

400 - Leave for ceremony

Option 2 (cheaper option) - Have the rest of the bridal party meet you at a specific time at the firt look location and have hoever many pther cars arrive at the same time to take everyone to the ceremony

230 (Car A) - Bride and photographer picked up

230 (Car B) - Groom and photographer picked up

300 - Meet at first look spot

345 - Bridal party & other cars arrive

400 - Leave for ceremony

Hope this helps.

What are some of the ways we can decorate our wedding car?

Decorations are fine but they depend on the type of bonnet/font end of the car. Sweet Rides prefer not to decorate the frontend of our cars with flowers so it doesnt damage the paint and chrome. We do however offer custom satin wedding ribbons in any colour with your invitation font and or icons inscribed on the ribbons. We'll also post them out to you as a momento after your big day free of charge.

What type of wedding transport suits a beach wedding?

Hi There,

It may depend more on your wedding theme rather than your location.

Our Holden EH Premers are vintage style cars renowned for being seen lugging surf boards and beach folk to the beach on a hot summers day.

A convertible may also work nicely toobut they are wether dependant and may cause issues on the day, weather pending.

Feel free to check out out beach style hHoldens on our storefront.

How do you organise the transport for the wedding?

We are trying to work out our budget and are struggling to work out how to organise the car to get to the wedding and how to leave? What do you do? Do you use have your own car at the venue and get in that to drive home or do you have the hired car wait until the reception is over and drive you to your hotel? We just arent totally sure how this is going to work as our venue doesnt have the space for us to get ready on site?

Hi Shelby,
It can sometimes get a little confusing as to who drives who where. Ultimately it does come down to a cost conversation as what you want on the day may be different to how much you're happy to pay.
A stereotypical hire would be as follows:
  • Residence to church/wedding service
  • Church/wedding service to photo location
  • Hang around for photos
  • Photo location to reception
 
If you want a post reception getaway car to chauffeur you from the reception to your hotel room, companies (such as ours) offer discounts to this service if booked with a half day/full day package.
Where the costs can start to accumulate are as follows:
  • Distance between residence and church/wedding service
  • How many cars you need on the day
  • Who else needs to be chauffeured? Bridesmaids? Groomsmen? Parents of the bride and groom? 
You can keep costs low by just having the bride (and father) and maybe the groom have seperate cars to the wedding service but then have 1 car for use between the wedding service and the reception. Or even just a car for the bride that you both use between the wedding service and the reception.
Or if its just about the photos, you can have a car pick you up from the wedding service to go take photos with you and then drop you off at the reception. 
There are many ways you can do it and it just comes down to what you want.
Good luck with it all and if we can help further eith any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 
Thanks
