Wedding couples favour the Ford Mustang

We've been looking at bookings across the UK for classic wedding car hire and have found that there's been a 300% increase in the amount of Mustang bookings compared to the previous 12 months. This shows that couples are leaning away from the non-traditional and choosing American muscle instead.

When BookAclassic first launched in the UK, more traditional wedding cars such as the Jaguar Mk2, Bentley R Type, Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud and Beauford Tourer made up the majority of bookings. While there’s still plenty of interest in these cars, a lot of couples are stepping away from tradition. Compared to the previous 12 months, the Jaguar has dropped in popularity by 66.7%.

Another vehicle we've seen climb in popularity is the Volkswagen Campervan, which is perfect for whimsical and bohemian weddings.

Alongside the Ford Mustang, BookAclassic has seen couples searching for other kinds of American muscle too, including the Chevrolet Impala and Dodge Charger.

It seems couples are stepping away from the traditional wedding car and choosing something with a bit more character. While traditional cars still make up a large percent of bookings, the surge in popularity for muscle cars could be an indicator of how the industry is changing. This could be a chance for couples to jump on top of a new trend.

Within all the bookings from the last 12 months, there are been some other interesting wedding transport choices from couples including the iconic London taxi, Mk1 Golf GTI and classic Fiat 500.
