Wedding Car Hire Blackpool

If Paris won’t do There’s Always Blackpool

Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the entire world. People flock there every year for tourist reasons, to visit EuroDisney and to get married. The thing about Paris is that is it can be very expensive and therefore it might be suitable to find a perfect alternative that looks just as romantic under bright city lights.  But where else in the world has a romantic Tower under the shadow of which you might want to conduct your wedding ceremony? Yes, Blackpool.

Nestled into the north west coast of England, close to the Irish Sea, Blackpool has long been a favourite tourist location and holiday destination. The iconic tower that rises majestically from the Blackpool skyline closely resembles Paris’s Eiffel Tower and was completed in 1894, inspired by its French counterpart.  Standing at five-hundred and eighteen feet tall the spire rises over the entire city and is a beacon of the Lancashire coastline.

If you are looking for an alternative to Paris, you couldn’t do better than Blackpool and there is plenty to do there if you decide to make a vacation of it too. The tower itself offers a ballroom and other attractions that can be incorporated into your wedding plans and there is easy local hire of Rolls Royce Phantom wedding cars if you need a luxurious ride to your wedding venue.

A Little History

Since Blackpool Tower was granted its wedding license hundreds of couple have booked their wedding to take place at the top of the magnificent building. Not only that, but you can also get married outside of the regular 8:00am-6:00pm hours since the one hundred and seventy-six year ban was lifted. Now, Blackpool Tower offers round the clock weddings, so if you want to get married at midnight you can do so, under the stunning city lights. The wedding ceremony room at the Blackpool Tower stands at a height of three hundred and eighty feet inside the five centimeter thick Blackpool Eye glass room.  There, you will have a view of miles of the Lancashire coastline heading both north and south and a full panoramic view of the entire city of Blackpool. As well as that you get to stand on a glass floor—not so much fun if you are terrified of heights—and you take the glass walk around the tower and enjoy seeing the world from a totally new angle.

So, if you have done your figures and you think that Paris might be a little tight on the wedding budget, how about taking a closer look at the Blackpool Tower instead? You might want to take a browse around the tower website and see what else they have to offer.

Do Us All a Favour

Wedding favours are an intrinsic part of the wedding celebration. Once the ceremony is over, the reception dinner is the place where the newlyweds, family and friends get to celebrate the happy union and there is no better gift that to set out bridal favours for each guest.

Normally, if the reception dinner is a sit down dinner with silver service, the bridal favours will be placed at each place setting so that each person gets a gift. These can come in all shapes and sizes, from sugared almonds to mints and other candy, or a small gift that represents  and honours the day.

The style of the packaging can speak volumes and there are also as many sizes and shapes of those as there are gift ideas. You could opt for tiny little tuxedo bags or bridal gown bags to put them in. You could also choose something floral or abstract, depending on the décor and colour choice for your wedding. Some couples even choose tiny little topiary place settings that resemble small trees or plants. You really could decide on anything, depending on your budget.

If you are getting married in a certain location that could be a tourist attraction you might want to opt for a small token from that place, for example the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben, Seattle Space Needle or other attraction. Anything topical or personalized is perfect for containing a gift or being the gift.

His and Hers

As the bride and groom, you will probably choose gifts for both the bridesmaids and groomsmen, and you will need to personalize those too. Jewellery is often a commonly chosen gift to show your gratitude for their assistance on your big day and rings or necklaces and bracelets are a good choice. You can also choose to have them engraved if you wish, or just leave them plain.

The Best Man should probably have an individual gift, as should the chief bridesmaid, by way of a special ‘thank you’. These gifts can be anything you wish. For the Best Man, jewellery, a model of a Phantom wedding car, after shave, a wallet, a watch or something personal would work well. For the chief bridesmaid, jewellery, perfume, a handbag, or a specific gift you know they will appreciate is ideal. They should probably be a little more special owing to their service, but you should also try to be as fair across your entire helpers as you can.

Children also play a part in ceremonies and jewellery is a perfect gift for them too. You can also buy them gift certificates or something you know they will appreciate. Putting thought into your personal gifts will give the recipients not only a day to remember, but something to look at in memory of it too.
