A wedding is a very special event – not only to the couple and their guests, but also to us. From the moment of the request until the actual date, we are delighted to be involved in the planning and expectation regarding the event. Every couple is different, and so are their expectations. We will dress up for your wedding ride: our chauffeurs will wear their most elegant uniform, including golden vest, white shirt, golden bow tie, cut and top hat.
"Being loved makes us strong. Loving makes us courageous. "Lao Tzu (6th or 4th-3rd century BC)
Congratulations, you are engaged! Now that the first step has been made, you start planning your big day. When planning a wedding – whether it is a civil, non-denominational or church wedding – many things are vague at the beginning. In many cases, the preferred date has not yet been scheduled, or the wedding day is only a couple of weeks away. Couples organize their wedding themselves or hire a professional wedding planner.We will support you in organizing your wedding, using our cascading planning approach. What do we mean by “cascading”? When you contact us, the exact date of the wedding might not have been set yet. We will therefore reserve your preferred date with some buffer time. We will then talk about your vision for the wedding ride: only a ride to the location of the wedding ceremony or any other rides as well? With decoration, photo shooting, or reception? We will capture all the information in a timeline. The timeline shows the individual stations and how much time needs to be scheduled for the individual events. Based on the timeline, we will prepare a quote. Both documents will be an important planning guide with regard to the other activities of your wedding planning. Until the day of your wedding, the plan will be updated continuously in a cascading approach until all times fit in your planning to the minute.
"You have to share your luck to multiply it. "Dame Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach (1830 - 1916)
Our carriages are pretty impressive and even without decoration we are in love with their Belle Époque style. However, a special message sometimes needs to be underlined by special decoration. And which event would be more suitable for decorating our carriages than a wedding.We offer two options: our standard decoration or your individual decoration matching your theme. Our standard decoration includes bows made of net lace or organza as well as white and blue silk flowers. This decoration will be attached to the frame of the folding top as well as at the right and left of the driver’s seat. You may also assign the florist who decorates your wedding party with decorating the carriage in consultation with us. We will charge a set-up fee for both options. In case of our standard decoration, we will charge a flat rate.
"Voluntary dependence is the most beautiful state, and how could it be possible without love! " Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749 - 1832)

To begin with, mineral water and piccolo bottles of sparkling wine are always available: the first to make sure that you don’t lose your voice because of a dry mouth, the latter to calm your nerves. We offer additional beverages such as sparkling wine (regular size), champagne, soft drinks or non-alcoholic sparkling wine upon your request.You decide how much you need. We only need to know how many guests shall be served, or whether the catering is only for the couple during the ride. The beverages will be stored in our electric cooling boxes until they are being consumed and will be served in wine coolers and with respective glasses.
"Spheres into each other directs love, world systems only through them." Friedrich von Schiller (1759 - 1805)
We are allowed to take up to seven passengers in an electric carriage. Six people are seated in the Vis-a-Vis, the seventh passenger sits next to the chauffeur. This is the most desirable place due to the exposed position.
For toddlers we have a booster seat ready. If you need them, please contact us in advance, so that your chauffeur brings him for your ride.
At weddings, we recommend the bride and groom in the carriage not too much narrow and not to let many passengers ride in the wedding carriage.
Basically, we can make an offer as soon as you tell us about the area of operation of the wedding carriage and the expected service life you have. We can always tailor, supplement and refine the offer if your planning becomes more concrete and if necessary.
You will find a corresponding download button for the relevant questions in addition to the explanation of the planning with the inscription "CECKLIST".
There is no typical wedding - every wedding stands for itself.
Our wedding trips start from a single route - for example, pick up the bride and groom from the registry office with subsequent trip to the wedding location and extend to the complete care of all trips throughout the day.
The complete care of all journeys would look like for example:
- Bride / groom pick up at point A (at home, at the hotel, etc.)
- Pick up the partner at point B
- Drive to the place of the wedding at point C
- Commissioned waiting at the place of mourning until after the ceremony
- Reception of the bride and groom and drive to various places with stopovers, for example, for photo shootings, visits or drink
- Continue to the wedding location
- Pick up after the party and drive to the honeymoon suite.
And we are sure you have more ideas that we will fulfill with pleasure!
Of course, you will receive an offer, even if you have no fixed date. Offers can also be adjusted if you have further developed your wishes and ideas.
Our timeline shows chronologically all points of your order.- When does your chauffeur start and from where to your pickup location?- What does your chauffeur bring with you - drinks, child seat, or similar?- Will the coach be decorated, and if so, how and by whom?- When does the carriage arrive at your first pick-up location?- What stops there are.- When the stops are approached.- What's planned at the stopovers and how long the stopover is.- When the carriage arrives at the destination.- How long the chauffeur drives back.Our timeline serves several purposes:- You can plan better.- Our offer will be transparent for you. We only charge the time your order lasts.- Our chauffeurs use the "timeline" as an important guideline to make your special day an unforgettable experience.
As a rule, our offer periods are for 2 to 4 weeks. During the period of the offer, a carriage will be reserved for you. So you have plenty of time to concretize your planning.
If the offer period has expired and you have not confirmed an order, the reserved carriage will be re-issued for new orders. But do not worry - we will inform you about it, so that nothing is forgotten.
A consolation for you: you are not alone with this problem. There is always something that could not be considered in your original design. Inform us in time and we can find a solution together and redeploy.
Our planning considers buffer times for your original planning. Since we will contact you two to four weeks before your wedding date to finalize the details of the process, nothing will be forgotten.
Redistribution of course always requires the availability on our side. The sooner you let us know about changes, the better.
2-4 weeks before your dream date, we will send you the most recent timeline for review, with the request to confirm the planned procedure.
After your confirmation, you will receive your invoice, which you can transfer either by bank transfer before the wedding date or on the day of your wedding at Chauffeur cash or pay by credit card.
Please understand that we can only send invoices by e-mail and can not have them printed by the chauffeur. Your chauffeur likes to note this and you will receive your receipt within 24 hours if you pay the driver.
On your wedding trip, your e-mail address and contact details are usually deposited. A few days before your booked appointment, you will receive an e-mail from us, in which we will inform you once more of your booking. This e-mail is also accompanied by the mobile number of the electric carriage reserved for you. We recommend that you also give this phone number to another person you trust, who will attend your wedding and who can contact us in case of emergency.
If your chauffeur can not answer your call immediately, he will call you back at the next stop. Please do not call anonymously if possible.
The hood of our carriages can be completely closed. This protects our passengers in the vis-a-vis area even in case of sudden rain.In addition, all Carrosse DeLouis electric carriages have both heated seats and a warm air blower for the footwell.

Also in this case we will contact you in advance.
At weddings, our chauffeurs are always at least 10 minutes before the agreed time at the pickup location. If this buffer is not enough for you, please let us know as soon as possible.
For toddlers, we can bring a booster seat, if this is notified to us in advance of the trip. Your own baby carriers can be attached with our two-point belts. For safety reasons, infants are not allowed to sit next to the chauffeur. The supervision of traveling children is up to our passengers.
It is our privilege to chauffeur you and welcome you as guests. That is why we offer our customers free mineral water as long as stocks last. We deliver miniature water in portion bottles, which can be drunk while driving.
In addition, we also offer so-called "AddOns", such as iced champagne or champagne in summer or mulled wine in winter. Addons are served in glasses, which are offered by the chauffeur during the lifetime of the coach. If you want such extras, we ask for prior order!
As a rule, we discuss the locations for photo shoots in advance.We also determine alternative locations with you, which are approached in the event of disabilities of the original location.
Please understand that due to the high utilization of the carriages and follow-up orders, very short-term changes can usually only be made within the time frame of your booking.
Of course, a photo shoot can also take place on a separate date. In this case, you receive an offer that lists both appointments as different positions.
There is virtually no time limit for booking orders in advance. On the contrary - an early booking guarantees that a carriage is available at your desired date.

In the above map you will find our area of operation and the areas in which we do not charge arrival and departure costs.We perform our Berlin wedding trips throughout the city of Berlin. For trips that are to take place in the Berlin area, we ask you to make a separate request. Then we can see if this is feasible in a mutually acceptable framework.
Our offers based on the time taken by your order. We calculate on base of your details about "pick-up location", possible waiting times, intermediate stations and activities, such as footage, as well as your destination. As a result we create a "timeline".
This timetable gives you an idea, how much times you have to plan for driving. This "timetline" will be sent to you with the offer. From this schedule, you can see how much time has been calculated for invisible times, such as driving to your place of work or for set-up and preparation times.
