Great wedding ideas: Maltese wedding transport with flare!
The dress is bought, the venue is booked, the guests have their flights and hotels reserved… now, is there anything you’ve forgotten?
Well, if you haven’t already considered the transport for your wonderful wedding in Malta, why not consider killing two birds with one stone and combine tradition and style with practicality and function? Malta is renowned for it’s charming vintage buses that once serviced the entire island but have since been put out to pasture; only to re-emerge as a popular option for transporting wedding parties to, from and in-between Maltese wedding venues and hotels. The sunny orange buses make a fantastic feature out of a functional necessity and will be sure to wow your guests with their novel appeal.
All aboard the wedding bus
Forget taxis and mini buses, treat yourselves and your guests to a unique transfer that will make for fabulous photo opportunities which will remind you of your special day in Malta forever. The buses, adorned with wedding ribbons and any other personal touches you would like to include, really add a sense of occasion to your wedding day whilst allowing you to transfer a large group to a church or reception on time, in one convenient, sweet ride!
The classic buses are an iconic tourist attraction on Malta and have been made ever-more so by the fact that they are individually owned by the drivers themselves. As such, a high degree of customisation has become tradition and each bus has a distinct character with personal modifications and decorations both inside and out. Much of Malta’s tourist paraphernalia involves the depiction of the Malta bus as ‘the’ symbol of Malta, so using such a traditional mode of transport adds a real flavour of Malta to your wedding day, while also giving you plenty of ideas for your wedding invitations, favours and any other wedding-related nice-to-haves that you may wish to lavish upon your guests!
One hot ride!
As you may expect with a vintage vehicle, air con was pretty much unheard of at the time of manufacture so you should expect a fairly warm ride if you are holding your wedding in the summer months in Malta. June to September get particularly hot and even with the windows open, your guests will undoubtedly be feeling the heat. So it is a good idea to consider wedding favours such as fans or perhaps even an ice-pop each for the ride. This makes for additional fun on your transfer and a great talking point for your guests! The heat, however, is well worth it for the fantastic photographs you’ll end up with, which will be sure to take pride of place in your ‘Malta Wedding’ album. Just make sure you have factored in time for the photo-op before boarding for your transfer; not only for the lovely couple but you will also find your guests turn into a bunch of paps in their attempt to get a photo of themselves infront of the bus!
