The best form of transportation for your wedding is one which matches the general style of your event. If you are having a Winter Wonderland theme wedding, complete with a white fur wrap and snowflake crystal bridal jewelry, you need a conveyance to match. The perfect form of travel for this wedding theme would be a horse drawn sleigh. For a rustic autumn wedding, an old fashioned horse and buggy would be wonderful. Sip from a thermos of warm apple cider to keep the chilly fall weather at bay.
For some brides and grooms, their wedding is a chance to really indulge in luxury. Sure a stretch limo is luxurious, but it is no where near as elegant as hiring a Bentley or a vintage Rolls Royce for the wedding day. You may never have the chance to own such a fine car, so why not treat yourself to a ride in one on the most special day of your life? Luxury automobiles with chauffeurs can be easily rented in most cities.
Maybe you and your groom love living life in the fast lane. If your idea of the perfect wedding attire is a sexy silk sheath with dramatic crystal bridal jewelry, bring this sense of style to your transportation. A Porsche or other sleek sports car could be the perfect way to make an impressive entrance to your wedding, not to mention a fast getaway at the end of the reception. Just don't try this with a full skirted wedding gown, as it will not fit in a sleek sports car.
Sometimes the location of the wedding may suggest a great alternative to the standard limo. If your wedding is at a country club, deck out a golf cart for your bridal transport. Hang streamers and a "Just Married" sign across the back of a white golf cart for a fun way to get around. This would be ideal for a preppy style wedding.
If your wedding is on the water, a boat might be a great form of transportation for the bride and groom. Imagine yourself floating away on a beautiful sailboat under a starlit sky at the end of your reception. Or for a casual afternoon wedding, the bride and groom could hop into a canoe and paddle away down a lazy river. I even knew of one couple who rented a giant inflatable dragon boat for their riverside reception getaway. Talk about leaving a lasting impression!
There are so many fun ideas from which a bride and groom can choose when looking for wedding transportation. While there is certainly nothing wrong with a traditional limo, the myriad of other possibilities means that no one need automatically go with the limo as the default option. Whatever your style, make sure that your wedding transportation reflects it.
