Couples favour the Ford Mustang as their wedding car of choice

Classic car hire platform BookAclassic has been looking closely at its wedding bookings across the UK and has found that couples favour the Ford Mustang over more traditional transport choices.

The Ford Mustang has been particularly popular within the last 12 months with bookings for the muscle car increasing 300% on the previous 12 months.

The ever-popular Volkswagen Campervan is also doing well on the site and sits just behind the Mustang in terms of number of bookings.

When BookAclassic first launched in the UK, more traditional wedding cars such as the Jaguar Mk2 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%.

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 for how the industry is changing.

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