Wedding Cars.

Kind of wedding Cars available for rent.

Cars are necessary for the Bride and the Groom when they are ready to attend the wedding ceremony at the wedding halls. Wedding cars take an important place in the Tamil wedding ceremony. On the day of the wedding Groom will start fasting from the morning and will not eat or drink anything till the marriage ceremony is over. He will be given bath by the elders at an auspicious time. His ear ring wearing ceremony will take place and after that he will get dressed in his new clothes and along with his Best man ("Mappillai Tholan"), normally the bride's youngest brother.

Early days, Groom used to go on a White horse, with traditional Tamil band "Mangala waththiyam" and English Brass Band playing Tamil songs. At all the junctions they will put a lot of fire crackers till to the wedding hall. After marriage they will come back with the same setup, but on the horse back both are sitting together.

Later years groom started to travel in cars traditionally decorated as swan or dove shaped and fitted on the front of the convertible car, where everyone can have a good look of the Bridegroom.

Today the times had changed; the bride groom is driven to the wedding hall, in a chauffeur driven latest air conditioned Benz car, with his suite hanging inside of it. Many companies are providing this wedding car rental service for the Sinhala and Tamil wedding ceremonies in Colombo and in all the other important cities in Srilanka. The car rental service will send the car to the venue, decorated with a bunch of flowers in the front and colored ribbons hanging all around the car and over the hood. The car will be sent
at the required time and place with well dressed driver. You have to reserve or book these cars from the car rental service provider at least one week prior to the wedding.

Likewise the Bride too arrives in a luxury car to the wedding hall with her people.
The wedding cars will be parked at the wedding hall till the ceremonies end. Once the ceremonies are over, one of the well decorated wedding cars will take the newly married couples to the bridegroom's home with all the gifts which they received at the time of their wedding.

Now a day's lots of people are using hired Limousine for the wedding ceremony and some wealthy Tamil people living in Europe did went even further and used to hire private Helicopters to be used in the wedding ceremonies.
Recently some couples are seen using the rented out helicopters for their wedding ceremonies and they used land on the helipad of the wedding event taking hotel. Renting of helicopter is expensive in Sri Lanka although the couples hire them to show their wealthy status.
