When in the planning stages of your upcoming marriage, the idea of hiring a bus for your wedding might not occupy your initial thoughts. However, beautiful vintage buses don’t only provide memorable talking points; they offer practical solutions to potential logistical headaches on the big day. So why should you choose a bus over other conventional modes of transport and which type of bus should you choose?
In many cases, wedding ceremonies take place at a different venue to the reception, which presents you with the dilemma of transporting guests from one location to the other. What’s more, parking limitations at reception venues often preclude your guests from driving themselves over in their respective vehicles. By hiring a bus for your wedding guests, you can solve this problem by providing transport to all who need it. At this point, you may be wondering why you should choose a vintage coach as opposed to an ordinary bus. Fortunately, there are many excellent reasons for doing so.
Whilst hiring a bog-standard coach solves the logistical problem of transporting guests, it does so without any of the benefits provided by a vintage bus. Here are just a few of the reasons you’ll want to choose a classic wedding bus over its modern equivalent.
By hiring a vintage wedding bus, you can provide a real talking point for guests. For example, who is going to forget your groomsmen arriving at the venue in a 1955 Florida Fire Truck? Remember, this is the one day of your life that you want your extended family and friends to remember more than almost any other. By hiring a head-turning vintage bus for your wedding, you can make a bold statement that’s bound to leave a lasting impression on your guests and those you encounter on your route from the church to the reception venue.
Let’s be honest; no one is going to remember arriving at the reception venue in a non-descript 52-seater coach. But if you transport all of your guests on a fleet of 1966 London Routemaster Buses, your guests will talk about that experience for years to come. These buses provide the opportunity for adults and children alike to be magically transported back to the 1960s, providing an experiential element to your big occasion that they’ll never forget.
Vintage wedding buses give many the opportunity for guests to have a ride in a vehicle that’s rarely, if ever, seen on our roads. Take this 1953 Regal AEC London Bus, for example. It’s likely that the majority of your guests weren’t even born when this bus was in service! By selecting classic buses of this nature to transport your guests, you can make the journey from venue to venue a part of the big day to look forward to, rather than dread. Thanks to their age, these vintage buses have a nostalgic beauty that cannot be matched by today’s modern coaches.
