Regal Limousines

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Is The Bride Supposed To Travel With In The Car?

On the way to the wedding, the bride usually travels with her father, or someone close that is walking her down the aisle. On the way to the reception, she travels with her new partner.

How Many Cars Should We Hire For The Wedding Party?

This depends on the size of your bridal party, the groom and groomsmen usually arrive at the ceremony early so they can hire a car also, or if the venue isn’t far, the one hire car could take the groomsmen first then go and pick up the bridesmaids. Whatever you decide on, make sure that there are enough vehicles and time to transport all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen to your photo location & the reception. 

Should We Hire Vehicles To Transport Family Members To The Wedding?

The father of the bride will probably be in the car with the bride, but it’s up to you whether or not you want to hire additional cars to transport other family members. Regal Limousines can also supply Luxury Sedans, minivans and/or coaches so you can ensure that family members and out-of-town guests are looked after and will get home safely after the reception.

When Should We Book The Vehicles?

This depends on the type of vehicle or vehicles that you require, and the date of your wedding. Our Limousines are often booked out between months even years in advance, so it is important to start looking for a wedding vehicle as soon as you have set a date. The peak times for weddings is March to June &  September to November, but the earlier you book, the more choices you have and it is just one thing less you have to worry about during the planning months ahead. Regal Limousines can offer you a payment plan to help with your budgeting. 

Should The Car Remain At The Venue During The Ceremony?

If you want to guarantee that you will have transportation to the photo location and reception, it is a good idea to make sure that the driver waits at, or near, the ceremony venue. Some hire companies book multiple weddings on the same day and don’t allow for emergency situations. The last thing you want is to find that your driver has disappeared to pick up another couple, only to have broken down along the way, leaving you stranded at the ceremony venue. Regal Limousines only ever book one wedding per car & driver on the day.

What If There Are Mechanical Problems With The Wedding Car On The Day ?

Regal Limousines takes every precaution to ensure your wedding day is stress free. All vehicles are checked regularly and are maintained to the highest standards. However the unexpected can happen. Given sufficient warning, we will provide a similar vehicle or arrange a full refund of any moneys paid. If the unfortunate happens, we will always get you to your wedding, no matter what.

What Can We Expect From Our Chauffeur?

Your chauffeur will be attentive in every possible way. This includes assisting your entries and exits from the wedding car; arranging your wedding dress, serving champagne and generally assisting in any possible way, to ensure your experience is memorable for all the right reasons.

What Services Are Included In Our Wedding Cars Packages?

All our vehicles come with umbrellas, exit/entrance carpet, wheel covers to prevent dirt getting on the dresses, ribbon colour OF YOUR CHOICE on the bonnet, sewing kits, water, mints, complementary champagne for photo locations. We can also supply “Just Married” signage for the back of the car. Of course if you don’t want any of these extras just let us know when you place your booking. A getaway vehicle from your reception to your hotel, is also offered by Regal Limousines.

Are You A Licensed Wedding Car Operator?

Yes, Regal Limousines is an accredited wedding car operator. We are industry accredited with NSW Transport and have full comprehensive & public liability insurance.

Do You Base Your Costing On Time Or Distance ?

The cost of your wedding cars is based on time. The time starts from your home, not from our base and any relocation charges are inclusive in the quote you receive. It doesn’t matter how many trips we may do, say from the ceremony to the reception, the cost is based on the time you book the vehicles for.

How Long Should I Book My Wedding Cars For ?

Our friendly staff will help you with this and offer advice on times. We use Google maps as an indication, but there are many things that need to be taken into consideration ie: time of day & traffic, loading & unloading of passengers, ensuring you are comfortable, put out the carpet and travel in a sedate manner to the location. Our cars are meant to be seen when driven, it is a leisurely drive, so sit back & enjoy the ride and feel like a Princess on your special day.
Always check with your photographer as to how long they expect photos to take. Should you have your wedding and reception in the same location, it is often a nice idea to have your wedding vehicle wait until after the ceremony is over to include it as a prop for those all important ‘wedding photos’.

What Happens If We Go Overtime, What Are The Charges And How Is It Paid?

You will have paid all of the hire fees upfront, and you would have been advised about extra time charges in the initial quote. We always confirm with you the week of your wedding, the information & timings again and at this stage you will have a good idea if you have allowed enough time. You will have met with your photographer & reception venue & have a time line in place. We allow you 15 minutes before extra charges apply and your Chauffeur will discuss this with you if needed. It is a condition of the booking that we have your Credit Card details on file in case any overtime is incurred. We won’t charge your card until we email you with the additional cost. In saying this though, this is a rare occurrence and rarely happens.
