Do you have an upcoming wedding and wonder what is the best way for you to show up on your wedding day in an elegant and unforgettable way? With the exception of the bride and groom there are few other things that people ever talk about. How you arrive in style is one of them.
But arriving in a classic Rolls Royce rental for wedding is as much about impressing the guests as it is the bride and groom. Your wedding day is one that will remain seared in your memory for years to come and you should make it as special as possible.
Here are some classic wedding cars that you should consider to arrive or depart on, on the best day of your life.
1950 Nash Ambassador
The Nash Ambassador is no old jalopie. Built by independent automaker Nash, this car was inspired by the streamlined look of airplanes and trains. It can comfortably fit five inside as there’s loads of room in there. In fact, the seats can be stretched out to make a bed that can comfortably sleep two adults. Not a bad place to have your honeymoon huh?
Bugatti Type 57
Built in 1935, the Bugatti Type 57 is just a wonder to look at. It has the look that you would expect from a typical car from the 30s; an elongated engine and rubber tyres with a white outline. What sets it apart from other classic cars is the fact that the chassis is made from magnesium hence the rivets that adorn the entire car’s body. And oh did I mention that this is considered to be the world’s first super car? With a top speed of 120 miles per hour and 200 horsepower, the Bugatti Type 57 was all the rage back in the 30s.
With a market value of over $30M, the Bugatti Type 57 is the most expensive car in the world.
The Hudson is a car from the 50s with our typical inverted-bathtub design. It even comes with an external visor to shield the driver and front-seat passenger from the sun. It’s a perfect wedding chariot with enough head and leg room in the car.
The chrome accents on the body and the wheel add to the pizzazz perfectly capturing every elegant’s wedding mood.
Volkswagen Karmann Ghia
The VW Karmann Ghia epitomizes European handiwork. Built by Germans and designed by Italians, this motor vehicle is characterized by flowing body lines and minimalist designs giving it a subtle elegance. It can comfortably sit four even though it’s a double door.
The engine is located in the back and there’s a storage compartment at the front of the car.
It’s easy to see why the Mercury Coupe oozed elegance in the 50s and still does so today. With a huge body that dominates the road, The Mercury Coupe is guaranteed to turn heads on any wedding day. Inside, the coupe has enough space for four and makes a perfect choice for ferrying the bride and groom to and from the wedding venue.
