    How fond of London are you? Can you make it a feature? If so, try...

    Our vintage (ish) fairway is costing £250. Taxis will also seat 5 so you'll only need 2.

    I would suggest just ordering normal London taxis fom computer cab and request the shape you want but dont tell them it is for a wedding. Then when they arrive tell them you will give them an extra £10-20 if they stick a ribbon on. Will work out much cheaper!



    My Dad is a london cabbie and has had this happen to him and he was more than happy to do it.



    Needless to say he will be driving me to the church the escorting me down the isle.



    Cant wait, 16 days!!!

    You could try an Executive car company. I booked Beluga chauffers for my bridesmaids and it was £80 for a mercedes (although I was called a couple of days before and told that it was in the garage being serviced, so they provide the Bentley instead!) It was quarter of the price for what I paid for my traditional Rolls Royce wedding car x

    Wow we have exactly the same problem I have 5 BM so need a big car to fit them all in!



    I am getting married in a Church in Enfield but then reception at DeVere in Cheshunt in there new barn.



    where are you getting married and when?



    We could maybe share any good suppliers!



    The cheapest I have at the moment for cars is £690 which I think is way to much and I am trying to cut the cost of the wedding as every thing just seems to get out of control image

    I know its a bloody nightmare isn't it!



    Aw thats sounds lovely, We are getting married on 24th April so still got a few months to go but it is coming round quick! We are getting married at The Priory Barn in Little Wymondley, Hitchin. There is a hotel about 5 mins away from the venue as we are having the whole day there and cars have qouted me cheapest for one car is £320 its ridicoulous. Think i am either going to try and find someone with nice cars or chauffers maybe will at least cut the cost. I know the feeling everything just adds up doesn't it!!



    When are you getting married?

    Hi Ladies,



    You could always try cab firms if you cant find executive cars and ask them whats the nicest car they have... i live next to heathrow so hundreds of executive car places here... maybe even worth ringing them down here and seeing how much ... might sound expensive but could work out cheaper than hire!



    p.s is thats your colour theme tasha606,,pink/brown?

    Im also having a pink/brown theme

    This company is based in North Herts, I've not used them as I didn't need cars but their prices don't look too bad. To be honest it's run by a friend of a friend but I have no first-hand knowledge of their service.

    - thank you !! Yes my colours are pink and brown a dusty pink and choco brown what type of pink and brown are you having? When do you get married?



    Zog thanks these look really good and sooo well priced I am emailing them now! xx
  • Someon recommended that if I wanted a cheap/free classic vintage car, then I could find a car owners forum for that type of car, and put out a plea for help. Apparently many owners are willing to let their pride and joys be used for this kind of thing. Then you could always see about hiring a cheap exec. car or smart taxi for your bridesmaids.
  • try www.classicweddingcarhire.co.uk

    They are based in Broxbourne. I think they quoted me £350 for each car (bentley and limo) but said they'd do both for £450. I've decided against a car now (i'm just going to ask a friend with a nice car) but I though the deal for 2 cars was pretty good.

    Gems- I'm also getting married at the Priory! isn't it beautiful? We fell in love with it from the very first moment we drove up there. But not until 16th Oct 2010, would love to exchange ideas.... Haven't sorted out cars yet, we have a contact for someone in London so hoping for some 'mates rates' but not sure yet, getting some good ideas here!

    I have booked my cars through the above company. They have a big range, including old daimler limousines which can seat 5 in the back.



    I found them the most reasonably priced too.
