So what are the most budget friendly forms of wedding transport that won’t break the bank?
Many taxi companies all over the country now have a line of “exclusive” or “luxury” cars for those looking to splash a bit extra cash on a taxi. These usually include lines of newer cars such as Mercedes or BMWs, but don’t come with the price tag of hiring one for the day. Plus, you’ll have a driver included in the price without the worry of having to find someone to drive you. If you’re lucky, they might even throw on some wedding ribbons for free – you never know unless you ask!
Okay, maybe you don’t have to think about a life as a criminal to get to your wedding in style. However, have you thought about asking your family member or friend with that classic car if you could borrow it for your big day? You might be amazed at how generous people can be when it comes to your wedding. Borrowing a vehicle from someone you know can be one of the most budget friendly forms of wedding transport thanks as you might find you only need to cover the cost of petrol and have someone you know and love become your driver for the day.
