There's no bigger day in your life to prepare for, so why not pick the biggest car possible for it? There are a number of good reasons why limousines are chosen for wedding car hire over and over again. They're classy, they're comfortable, they're spacious, they're luxurious and they make you look like absolute royalty when you pull up in one of them. Why you should get a limo hire for your big day is a no-brainer. However, how you should go about it is where a bit of advice comes in handy.
'Stretch' your expectations
The first thing that has to be stressed is that you are probably not the only person getting married that day: many others are and many of them will want a limo hire also. Therefore, make sure you book the event at least nine months in advance if you're having the ceremony from April to June—otherwise known as "prom and graduation season"—and six months ahead for the rest of the year.
Also, even though it will be a long time before the ceremony itself, don't make the appointment with a half-hearted attitude. As you would with any other major purchase, turn up to the store in person and see the goods with your own eyes. Aside from avoiding disappointment on the day, this will keep your mind at peace. It's worth also saying that when you do go to the store, have a look around before making your decision. Many people prefer to opt for the traditional black or white stretch limousine, and there's nothing wrong with that. But sometimes, after scanning the variety of colours, models and sizes available, people realise that their tastes lie in something a little more unusual. Check to see if you're this type of person before making the call.
Yet regardless of its colour and any other specifications, it's also important to ask what you'll be allowed to put on the car when taking your classic wedding photo. It may come as a surprise, but a lot of companies don't actually let you decorate their cars with flowers, signs and so forth, so it's best to know what you can and can't do before the tripod is set up.
Finally—and you'll be pleased to hear this one—don't be afraid to get pushy. This is your big day, and if you want a champagne cooler, a certain dress code for the driver or any other specific requirement that will make it more special for you, then negotiate hard with the company you've chosen. It may help to remind them that if they don't provide what you want, someone else will.
