Whether you’re a car enthusiast or just like to get from A to B, your big day is a great chance to arrive in style. The good news is that there are plenty of styles for every couple to choose from, so it doesn’t have to be glitz and glam at all. From the classic understatements to the ‘all eyes on me’, here’s a look at some great car arrival options. After all, you only get one chance to make a first impression, so for your big day, best make it count.

The Kombi Van

Popular with those who dream of a laid-back affair, with coastal vibes and a vintage throwback, the kombi van is a much-loved car for wedding transportation. There’s enough room for the bridal party (or a surfboard, if you prefer), and personalised touches like curtains, flowers and peace symbols are a nod to its hippy past. Perfect for jumping in and driving to the closest secluded beach for a honeymoon!

The Jag

A classic wedding transportation option, the Jag is perfect for country weddings (see image below), with rolling hills and vast landscape either side of you, and a long winding road in front. It’s a timeless style and makes for great memories. Leave the roof on to keep windswept hair at bay.

The Beetle

The Kombi van’s smaller counterpart, the mini is another car that’s ready for those who reminisce of easier, stress-free times. We all know someone who had a mini back in the day, and it’s a car that’s look back on with fond memories. A cute option for travelling short distances (I’m not sure how much speed this one could get up on a freeway), the mini is a perfect squeeze for you and your bride (and not too many more people).

The Limousine 

The go-to wedding car of choice since the dawn of time, there’s nothing bad to say about the ol’ limo. There’s enough room for the whole wedding party, there’s champagne on ice in there, some people get to ride backwards, it’s all a big party! Whether your wedding is city, country, beach or beyond, there’s a reason limos are so popular: they just work.

The Cadillac

Spacious, low, and stylish, the vintage American Cadillac is one way to make an entrance (or exit). Whether it’s a convertible or not, the Cadillac has lots going on under the hood for those interested, and looks great in any setting for those who aren’t so crash-hot on mechanics. Big enough for the boys on the way to the ceremony or for the whole wedding party after the ceremony, these cars will never go out of style.

So that’s a snapshot of five different types of cars to have you (and the gang if required) arriving in style. Looking so good might even make it hard to actually get out of the car on arrival!

Ms Zigzag says: Every little detail of your wedding is an expression of who you are as a couple, even your choice of transport to your wedding! A kombi van was my choice for my special day, what was yours? 

When the phrase “dance in the rain” is actually put to the test, it can sometimes be a little hard to stomach. Not for Rachel and Hugh’s Shoreham country wedding though. Not only did they dance in the rain, they even said their vows in it! Today, Hugh reflects on his favourite moment from the wedding – and it’s no wonder that getting under the shelter of their incredible marquee was a highlight for Hugh!

Hugh says, “Where to start?! Walking into the marquee with Rachel and being greeted by a room full of smiling faces and a buzzing atmosphere was a very happy moment.”

A black tie tux may be the perfect suit for a formal wedding in the city, but when you’re getting married in Santorini, a Greek Island in the southern Aegean Sea, I can’t think of better attire for the boys than white linen – so carefree and breezy to match the mood of the day.

Damien and his groomsmen wore off-white linen suits designed specially by Australian designer Daniel Avakian, paired with white linen shirts and white loafer-style shoes. They even had a beautiful linen t-shirt to change into later on in the evening so they could get into some serious dancing!

Kiri and Damien, where was our invite to your amazing Santorini destination wedding?
