Arrive, or depart, in style with your unique wedding day transport.
Here at WeddingHour, we love a classic – or modern – wedding car. We love to see the stunning cars from your real weddings or those our finest suppliers proudly display at the entrances to our wedding fairs.
A wedding car truly is a classic choice. However, if don’t want to follow tradition, there are many unique ways to arrive in style. Therefore, our Top Tips this Tuesday guides you through our suggestions for the best alternative wedding day transport. If you are a traditional bride, but fancy adding something quirky to your big day, alternative transport is the perfect place to start.
Whether you’re thinking of flying in by helicopter or cycling away in style, we have some unique ideas to inspire you!
Vintage bride? Vintage wedding? Then a bike may just be for you! Popping your bouquet in the basket and cycling off in style is also the perfect option if you’re an environmentally-conscious couple.
If you’re planning on heels and a dress, you may want to make sure it’s a short, downhill ride to the reception venue; failing that, it’s a great photo opportunity!
High glamour? Looking to make a statement? Take to the skies in style! Nothing says ‘we’ve arrived!’ quite like a helicopter. Chartered helicopters typically carry between three and six people, so you could include your groomsmen or bridesmaids along for the ride!
Double-check that there’s an appropriate landing space at your venue, and local air travel laws, and you’re away!
Wedding abroad? Then why not consider arriving on one of the world’s most beautiful and majestic animals: the elephant? Imagine setting off into the sunset on the shoreline with your new husband or wife, enjoying the view from atop the largest land mammal on earth? Just think of the photos!
If you’re having a traditional Indian wedding, the groom may be riding the elephant to the ceremony, surrounded by friends and family: beginning the celebrations in style!
Horse & Carriage
Looking for a fairy-tale wedding? Arrive at your ceremony via horse-drawn carriage! Romantic, elegant and glamorous: this is the real Cinderella moment for a bride.
Add the ‘wow’ factor by booking a horse-drawn carriage as a special way to surprise your new husband or wife on your wedding day. Imagine travelling to the venue in a romantic carriage while you sip champagne to toast your marriage!
Marrying on a farm? Travelling by tractor is the perfect way to honor your venue! Not only is it a fun-filled photo opportunity, it’s also the perfect way to show off your dress to passers-by – as you and your new husband or wife wave from the back of the trailer!
Let’s just hope your venue isn’t too far away!
