Ask Kate: Who travels with who?

August 8, 2012

I’ll be having four bridesmaids and have no idea who travels with who.

Can you help?


Usually the bride will travel in one car with her father.

The bridesmaids and the mother of the bride will travel in another wedding car and they leave just before the bride and her father.

These two cars are often hired.

The groom will usually travel to church with the best man. This can either be in a hire car or one of their own. The ushers meet the groom and best man at the church, as they have to make sure they are the first people there.

On leaving the ceremony, the bride and groom will travel in one of the cars to the reception venue.
