Vintage Wonders: Car Trends this Wedding Season

The wedding doers for many a generation have been taken up with the thought of all things ‘vintage’. However, this particular trend has gained a new found exuberance with the current generation. Gone are the days when the bridegroom made his entry on the standard ghodi. Weddings just keep getting grander by the day, and nothing spells opulence better than a classy, luxurious vehicle during the vidaai. Besides, a car with a rich lineage has even more value attached to it because it adds that extra touch of history and mystery that most wedding parties today treasure. India has several vintage cars doing the circles that were originally owned by maharajas and viceroys of old. Let’s have a look at the trendsetters of the past few years.

The Rolls Royce

The Rolls Royce is the Indian answer to the American trend of limousines. Two special editions called ‘the Ghost’ and ‘the Phantom’ were introduced by these elegant car makers to lure the rich and elite in the Indian City of Dreams, Mumbai. In fact, this brand has etched its presence in the Indian market so well that the company receives a tenth of it’s earnings from the Indian market alone. A car from this vintage line definitely typifies the big fat Indian wedding.

The Bentley

A successor of the Rolls Royce, the Bentley brand was acquired by Volkswagen later on and has established its place in the hearts of wedding doers for decades now. The ‘Bentley Blower’ is one of the famous vintages in the wedding circuit, along with the ‘Bentley Speed Six’, ‘Bentley Mark VI’ and many more. So if you’re looking for the perfectly chic entry or classic exit, these swanky saloons might just be the answer to your ideal wedding.

The Buick

Buick is the oldest brand name in automobiles in America and the world. A division of General Motors, these wonder cars have had many successors since. The ‘1937 Buick 4-Door Convertible’ and the ‘Buick Roadmaster Sedan 1938’ are some common names in the present Indian wedding circuit. If you want to add a dash of heritage to your wedding or just flaunt your good fortune around, be sure to rent from one of these brilliant roadsters for your D-Day.

This Holy Trinity is just a drop from the ocean of vintage car choices, such as Chryslers, Fords, Mercedes, Chevrolets, and many more, available for your wedding day. A lot of effort goes into planning the perfect wedding, and no one can understand this better than the wedding party. You want every detail to be perfect and fabulous, and the wedding car (though a small detail), needs to be picture perfect as well. The perfect car won’t just be an excellent prop for traditional ceremonies such as the baraat, but it’ll also make for great memories that you’ll cherish forever.
