We’re dying to find an old fashioned car to get whisked away from our ceremony!! We just need it for about one hour (from church, to pictures, then to reception) since we have transportation figured out for FI and I for the whole rest of the day… for some reason we just can not find a place that offers these cars! Our wedding will be in the Mystic area of CT (technically stonington) close to RI and about an hour from Hartford. We know it can be done because I’ve seen pictures of brides with these cars allll the time! Am I looking in the wrong places?! help!
thanks bees! 🙂

I have been on the hunt for the same thing. I found someone in White Plains NYC and the gave me some info. Antique cars rentals tend to be pricey and a time commitment is required (i.e – 3 hour package minimum). The rate I found for a Rolls was $400 for 3 hours. To find something closer to your area you can look on Limos.com

I’d suggest looking around for antique car clubs in your area (http://www.carestoration.com/connecti.htm )- and then contacting the rep for the club and asking if someone would be interested in the job (and I’m sure someone will love the chance to show off their car)- It will probably be easiest to have the car’s owner drive you, they’ll have peace of mind knowing their baby is being treated well, and you won’t have to think about anything except looking awesome and being married!
Plus I’m sure it will cost way less than renting an antique car or going through a limo company- maybe someone will even do it for freeeee?

Ditto on contacting the vintage car clubs in your area. I suggested this recommendation to sophie10 a while back and it worked out for her. Here’s the message she sent me after the wedding.
“We did end up calling a local antique car association and it worked out perfectly!! It was truly amazing. The owner of the car was so happy to do it and it was one of the most special aspects of our wedding.”
Here’s a link to the Regional and Local clubs in Connecticut. You will know the cities that are near your veue better than I .
