By LLM Reporters on 16th December 2015

Weddings are often the pinnacle of young couple’s lives where money is invested heavily to make it the perfect day for friends and family. Typically a no expense spared occasion, luxury weddings need to be planned meticulously so everything runs smoothly.

From luxury cars to fine dining, find out from Sussex Chauffeurs how you can plan an inspirational wedding everyone will remember for all the right reasons:

Venue

Arguably the most important decision after choosing to get married is where to host the ceremony

Arguably the most important decision after choosing to get married is where to host the ceremony. Once your guest list is roughly known, you can create a shortlist of venues that suit your numbers. Book all of them early on for a walkthrough to understand the atmosphere and interior design on offer.

For grand ceremonies, castles are a fantastic choice; often having royal connections, they create a special ere that helps build on your guests’ excitement and sense of occasion. Country hotels with spas are also attractive options as you can even spend the night and get couple’s treatments to relax after your vows.

Wedding Cars

The car you choose will have a lasting impression

Of course, most of us will have a favourite car brand and an opinion on a classic or modern design. Your wedding, as a unique event, is a good opportunity to discover unfamiliar luxury cars that will provide you with new experiences to associate with your big day. As you research, imagine stepping out of your chosen vehicle as you head towards the venue, everyone waiting to celebrate with you.

The car you choose will have a lasting impression, and could make an excellent backdrop to your wedding photography. Luxury V Class Mercedes and limousines offer unforgettable journeys where you can listen to calming music and sip champagne to toast your new relationship status. So, consider these options even if you’re usually more of a Porsche fan and make sure you’re both happy with the chauffeur service. Their uniform should always be smart enough for your big day and they should know the roads from your home or hotel to the venue extremely well.

Fine Dining

Taste test all food before the big day and always get a second opinion

Just because you’ve got a large guest list, doesn’t mean the food quality should suffer through being mass produced. Expert wedding caterers can offer you sublime four course meals to satisfy even the most discerning tastes. Choose quality and quantity by researching trusted caterers close to your chosen venue.

If you have a themed wedding, ensure the food lives up to that idea and work with chefs that understand the home grown roots of your food and can create something truly special. To ensure the success of your dishes, taste test all food before the big day and always get a second opinion. There should also be tasty vegetarian and vegan options so everyone is eating well, and also exceptions for allergy sufferers.

Lastly, but not least, strive for presentation that is second to none and on trend. We all taste food before we actually eat it, though the smell and how it looks, so don’t forget to judge these just as well.

Honeymoon

Consider going to luxury five star resorts in long haul destinations such as Jamaica and Dubai to truly get away

After a hectic day with your guests, you’ll both want to go somewhere private where you can get pampered to your heart’s content. Consider going to luxury five star resorts in long haul destinations such as Jamaica and Dubai to truly get away. Your chauffeur driven car can provide a unique airport transfer as you spend your first moments alone as a married couple.

If either of you aren’t keen flyers, it’s actually become quite popular to honeymoon on the larger cruise ships, such as those by the Royal Caribbean cruise company. With all on board entertainment and meals tailored to you, it could be a very stylish way to begin wedded bliss and explore many different destinations.

So, make your wedding day the envy of all your friends, and also the most special day it can be for yourself and your partner. When it comes to nuptials, no detail is too small so consider everything as part of the larger picture.
