Hey guys,
what is the fastest and most convenient way to get from Venice to Bled, Slovenia ?

Also, could anyone please recommend some websites who hire cars with drivers to take us from VEN to BLED.

There hasn't been a direct train from Venice to Ljubljana (for Bled) for years so, rather than faff about making changes, I think your best option is to take the long-distance bus from Venice > Ljubljana:

Other buses run from Venice Mestre (the mainland part of the province of Venice, 10 minutes on the train from Venezia Santa Lucia station to Venezia Mestre station or there are regular buses across the causeway to Mestre station:

Once in Ljubljana you just take the Ljubliana >Bled bus from outside the railway station. Journey time is around an hour and buses run roughly every hour. Timetables here:

For private transfers Venice > Bled, is probably the best option. The company has existed for around 10 years now (perhaps longer) and I've watched it grow and expand its services.

A hire car with driver is an expensive proposition. Apart from in and around Venice going to Slovenia it is really easy to drive yourself. Slovenia as a country makes great road trips. With your own car you could explore the mountains around Bled, which personally I think are much nicer than Bled itself;).
