It’s, quite possibly, the biggest day of your life thus far. Your wedding day is something you want to set apart from all other occasions by creating a magical and unforgettable experience. One of the best ways to do this is to ensure your wedding is timeless, and above all, elegant. Elegance can be achieved in many ways and on all different budgets, but one of the most elegant things you can add to your wedding is a classic or vintage car. A traditional British wedding sets the stage for an elegant affair, so why not add that extra touch with a sophisticated and beautiful classic car?
So what is it about a classic car that immediately adds that dignified feel to any occasion? DM Historics, specialists in the restoration and sale of classic and vintage cars, explains how a classic car can add that extra touch of elegance to your wedding day.
Weddings are built on a strong foundation of tradition, ceremony and superstition. From the bride wearing white, to that sweet little rhyme – “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue,” there are endless rituals involved that go back centuries. A good wedding follows a specific formula, from toasts to speeches, to the bouquet throwing and cutting of the cake.
The wedding car also plays a crucial role. A classic car perfectly sets the stage for the flustered bride as she arrives at the ceremony venue, and then for those first, sweet private moments of marriage as the bride and groom are ushered to the reception. And of course, the exit of the bride and groom. To finish the day perfectly, nothing says tradition better than a classic car, carrying the newlyweds off into their happily ever after.
and make for a flawless theme
Theme weddings continue to grow in popularity as another way to make your big day stand out. Themes can be as specific as fairytale or carnival focused, or as broad as vintage, rustic or simply focusing on seasonal elements. Choosing the right car to go along with your theme can tie everything together perfectly.
For vintage weddings, a vintage car is an obvious choice. But classic cars can also work perfectly for just about any wedding theme, including fairytale or rustic. Taking the time to choose the right classic wedding car to go with your wedding, whether there’s a specific theme or not, can truly put an unforgettable and finishing touch to the most important day of your life.
They’re fun and unique…
Opting for a classic car at your wedding is a great way to add a fun and unique element to your day, without going too out of the box. Classic cars come in a variety of sizes, styles and colours, so you’ll be able to find something that suits your day perfectly, no matter how specific the details. A classic car also makes for beautiful wedding photos, and adds that touch of something different to your album.
Why settle for a modern car on a day you want to remember as anything but ordinary? The goal of any wedding is to set the day apart as something perfect, to create a memory that nothing else going forward in life will surpass.
As much as we see fashions changing over the years, something we never see going out of style is a bit of traditional class. There’s just something about a well-kept classic car that maintains its dignified status, no matter how many decades pass by. Vintage and classic cars were made in a time when things were built to last, when craftsmen took pride in the things they created.
This is certainly a desired element for any wedding – that timeless, romantic feel that makes the day absolutely perfect, and even as you look back years later.
