Where a car is fitted with a large enough rear shelf most will usually have a silk flower arrangement provided, usually in neutral coloured flowers ie Ivory/White/Cream so they blend with any wedding theme. We appreciate the decoration of a car is personal to the Bride & Groom therefore we offer a choice on our reservation form as to whether a silk flower arrangement is required or not. If you decide to go and view the vehicle also ask to see the silk flower arrangement so you have a better idea of what will or will not be provided in the car. Some vehicle photos on the website may also show the rear flower arrangements in use.
If ‘fresh’ flowers are preferred, please contact your chauffeur directly whose details will be on your itinerary, they will be more than happy to provide the measurements of the rear shelf but are unable to accept liability if the arrangement you or your florist as a third party provides does not fit. As rear windows have different sloping angles this could cause the arrangement height to be compressed. Your wedding florist in conjunction with the chauffeur can ascertain the size of the rear shelf and window space available in order to make up the arrangement to the correct size as all rear window shelves are different.
Please Note – Fresh flower arrangements often wilt when placed on the rear parcel shelf as the sun magnifies the heat beating down on them coupled with the fact they must not have water in the base so as to avoid possible spillage causing damp staining or water damage to the vehicle interiors. Also flowers must not contain pollen as again this can cause permanent staining to the vehicle interior and could cause allergies to those in the car. Because of the problems associated with fresh flowers nearly all wedding car companies use silk flowers as standard. We would always urge you to think twice before considering fresh flowers on the rear window shelf.
