From a BMW to a 1978 Jaguar and more, the bridal entourage is getting the luxe upgrade.
With the bridal trousseau and décor getting the designer, bespoke treatment why skimp on the entrance?
The new-age brides understand the importance of a unique, customized entrance and have found a novel way to do just that – luxury cars. After all, your cocktail night dance playlist gets an added boost if you show up in a Lamborghini or even a Mercedes.
Luxury and vintage cars are becoming the chosen way for many brides and grooms to add a generous dose of sophistication to their big day. Take your pick from the popular Mercedes, BMW or Bentley and more.
Whether it is a classy convoy of 9-10 cars to luxury coaches for destination weddings, Sunil Gupta, MD & CEO, of Avis India has seen it all. He says, “Even if you don’t own a luxury car but you have a Bimmer or a Merc at your wedding, it just lends a certain panache to the festivities.” And, it is not a metro-phenomenon either, he adds, as the demand for luxury rides surges in every part of the country. Case in point, the Ambani weddings saw fleets of cars going from other cities to Udaipur to ferry guests such as Beyonce, Hilary Clinton and many others.
Meanwhile, some bridal party’s are taking the help of vintage car service providers to add an old-world opulence to their wedding. “The charm of vintage cars has been increasing amongst wedding couples, especially if the theme is classic or traditional. Vintage car hiring is trending as it lets the bride and groom make a classic departure making their wedding unique,” says Aditya Loomba, Joint MD, Eco Rent a Car.
Now, imagine yourself rolling down to your wedding in a Ford (1942) or a Rolls Royce – doesn’t that sound like an entrance right from your favourite retro movie?
