Looking for an exotic car for my wedding

So I'm getting married on November 3rd and have been looking for a car to leave the wedding and/or reception in.

The wedding is in Madison and the reception is downtown, so I've been trying to find something nice to ride from the wedding to downtown in. Most limo services require a minimum 3hours @ $450... so that's not going to work out.

Also, I was wanting something nice to leave the reception in. It could just be a ride around the block for a photo op for all I care or a ride to the Westin. I'll be drinking at the reception, obviously, so while I'd love to drive a super nice car, I don't want to after I've been drinking.

Ideas?

Aside from seeing if someone will give you a ride or let you borrow their car, I'm not sure there's much out there. We don't have any exotic rentals nearby, and Coats Cars is the only company nearby that specializes in unique and classic limos.

But your idea is right up there with what we as enthusiasts want at their wedding. I'm seriously looking at this for my wedding in February:





I actually found a black one along with this white one and want to have both!

While I'm sure your a responsible adult...I don't see you driving the exotic through huntsville being something these guys would allow unless it's a rental through a company. Could you imagine driving the yellow vantage across town for like...10 minutes

I don't want to drive the car since I will be drinking that night.

If I could hire someone to help me out at my wedding, though, then that would be preferred. I don't mind paying for someone's time, either.

Edit: Samir, that RR would be AMAZING to leave my wedding in.

Correct.

Leaving the wedding in Madison headed towards HSV (probably around 3-3:30) and/or the reception in HSV (9-10ish?).

Obviously they're invited to both for helping out, too haha.

Yeah, it's a big investment to let someone drive your car. And unfortunately there's no rentals like that outside major metro areas. And even when there is, it's not cheap. 24hrs in a Porsche Turbo cost me around $1500 in Dallas a few years back.

That RR is in Bangalore, India and runs about $1000 USD. Not cheap even by our standards.

It's nothing special, but I do have access to an s500. Not a limo per se, but boy is it roomy in the back.

It looks like I have the ride from Madison to HSV covered. Shay is nice enough to offer his Camaro for the drive to the reception.



I'm still looking for a 4door exotic for after the reception, though.

You should talk to Chandler's dad about cruising out in the Maserati.

I didn't think about that, either, Samir.

He's supposed to stop by the shop in the Ferrari soon, so I'll talk to him then. Good thinking!

Glad to help! Hope you've got a photographer that's also good with cars! You're going to have some nice ones there for sure.

That Camaro is definitely going to be a sharp way to arrive at the reception. And leaving in a Maserati would be icing on the cake.

I still like the suggestion on hsv about just save the money you'd spend on the wedding, get married at the court house, and put a down payment on your own exotic........lol.

It all depends on the family of the girl you're marrying.

Kelley and I were VERY close to just eloping.

Even a small wedding is stupid expensive. I don't get what the big deal is about walking in front of your friends and family to a guy you don't know for him to wish you luck. Then again...I don't think like others do, typically lol. Guess you gotta keep the family happy more so than anything.

A wedding isn't expensive.

It's the reception that's stupid expensive. That being said, the reception has nothing to do with the bride and groom. The reception is for everyone else.
