There are so many things to think about when you’re planning a wedding, but one you don’t want to overlook is your wedding transport! This is what will take you to the ceremony in the morning, and if the reception is being held elsewhere, then it will whisk off you and the groom there afterward. It’s an element of the wedding you can really have fun with; you can go with something quite kitsch, unique or classy depending on the kind of feel for the day you’re after. Here are just a few of the different transport options you could think about.
When To Book?
It might not be one of the first things you think about when planning a wedding, but you should book your transportation early on. Companies offering different types of transport for weddings will generally get booked up quickly so you don’t want to be disappointed. Plus, many of these companies will also hire vehicles for proms so during this time of year they will be especially in high demand. Get in there early and secure your spot.
What Type of Transport?
If you want to go for a real princess experience, then a horse and carriage will certainly help to achieve this. If you are going to be having a fairytale wedding theme, then this form of transport will be the ideal choice. White horses are usually used for weddings, find a company that covers your local area and see what kind of carriages they have available. Most will have a range of designs so you could pick one based on your budget and the overall style that will work best for your big day. Another type of transport you could consider are luxury vintage cars. These are a classy and elegant choice for wedding transport. There are companies which offer VIP chauffeur car hire; the cars are stunning, and it’s the perfect way to arrive at your wedding in style. If you’re getting married on a sunny day, a convertible model with the roof down would be a good choice. Limos are popular choices for weddings, a white stretch limo will always make a statement and is a fun way to get around on your big day. Some may consider them to be a little kitsch, but this iconic form of transport would still suit a traditional or glam wedding. For something a bit more unique you could even consider a white hummer limo!
Consider Your Wedding Guests
You’re not required to provide transport for guests, although it’s of course nice to do so. It means everyone arrives at the ceremony at the right time, and there’s no messing around with taxis or out of town guests getting lost. A wedding bus is a really fun and quirky way to get from A to B on your big day! It’s a definite talking piece, inside can be decked out with gorgeous flowers, ribbons, and balloons so it wouldn’t feel much like you were taking a ride to work! Alternatively, you could book a different option for you and the groom, and a bus for your wedding guests.
