Q. I have 10 bridesmaids. How do I get them all to the venue on time?

A. Keith Riley says: There are a couple of options here. You'll either need to look for a wedding car hire company that's happy to do multiple runs to the venue, or alternatively one that can offer at least two vehicles to make the journeys simultaneously.

Our two vintage-style Ford Bramwith Limousines are both seven-seaters, so we can transport your bridal party in two trips of five with ease, then return for you. You also have the opportunity to book both of our cars to carry your whole bride tribe to the venue at the same time. What's more, if you're exchanging vows in a separate location from your afternoon and evening celebrations, we'll wait for you at the ceremony venue, before moving on to the reception in style and comfort with a bottle of bubbly for the newlyweds. Whilst our cars have a vintage look, they are modern, so there are no concerns regarding reliability enabling us to make sure everything runs to time as well as covering a radius of up to 50-miles from our Merseyside base.

Finally, we'd recommend that you ask your wedding car provider about their booking policy, as you'll want to feel safe in the knowledge that you're not going to be rushed. We'll only ever book one wedding per day so once we arrive at the venue we'll be with you for photographs and will only leave when you're ready.

Q. I'm thinking of booking wedding transport as a surprise for my husband-to-be. What do I need to bear in mind when choosing it?

A. Geraldine Regent says: This sounds like a fabulous surprise, but it can be hard to get it right. Why not choose a vehicle that'll rekindle happy childhood memories? A car that his parents used to own would be perfect, and his mum and dad would love it too. Just make sure they have time for a spin!

Once you've chosen the car, consider when it needs to arrive. Allow enough time for the groom to get to the venue and start greeting your loved ones. You may also wish to allow extra time for the driver to go back to pick up any additional passengers, such as the ushers. Don't forget to factor in a few minutes for him to get some fabulous photos!

For an extra special touch, you could decorate the car for him. Ribbons in his favourite football team's colours would go down a treat.
