One of the most emotional moments of the wedding day is undoubtedly the bride's reception. After these emotional moments, where the saying "I both cry and go" finds meaning, the wedding convoy is formed and the bride sets off for the wedding site behind the bridal car...
Who Rides in the Bridal Car?
Usually only two people, the bride and groom, or four people, one from the bride's family and one from the groom's family, ride in the bridal car.
The wedding day is one of the happiest and most exciting days for the bride and groom. Therefore, having someone to help them in the bridal car reduces the couple's excitement and stress to some extent. For example, the bride needs someone to help her get in and out of the car. (That's why you should choose someone who you like. Among the first choices that come to mind are cousin, sister, sister-in-law, a close friend. In some cases, the sister-in-law gets in the car to help the bride).
Another option is for only the bride and groom to ride in the bridal car. (Some couples rent a car for two people just for this, so that they can have a pleasant journey alone and relatives will not be offended).
How Many People Should Ride in the Bridal Car?
It is appropriate for a total of two other people to ride in the bridal car besides the bride and groom. Because the wedding dress will already be big / fluffy, the couple will barely fit in the back seats. Since the driver and the bride's relative will sit in the front seats, there will be no other space in the car.
In some regions, families may plan who will ride in the bridal car without consulting the couple beforehand; mothers-in-law who insist on sitting in the front, relatives who want to triple the back seat, ... Although this behavior is wrong in our opinion, you may encounter such a situation. But don't bother on this special day, remember that you make all the decisions.
Who Drives the Bridal Car?
The driver must be very careful not to cause any accidents, especially when throwing envelopes and money to the children, which is part of our traditions and customs. Since the groom cannot cope with both the excitement of the wedding and the stress of driving at the same time, the bridal car is usually driven by a member of the groom's family. (For example, a brother, cousin, uncle.) But of course, it should not be forgotten that a close friend and a private driver are also among the options.
Some couples prefer to be alone in the bridal car. In this case, the driver of the bridal car is naturally the groom.
