Oh my gosh! I can’t believe it’s been sooo long since I’ve posted a blog! I guess I’ve let life get the best of me over the last little while :S. Anyway, this blog is super fun and fabulous! I hope you enjoy it :).
There are a lot of things a couple needs to consider when planning for their big day. What flowers should they have? What kind of venue are they looking for? Who’s going to be in the wedding party? How many people are they going to invite? The list goes on, and on, and on! Making these decisions can be a bit overwhelming, but weddings are becoming so much more than a cookie cutter ceremony and reception, which means that decisions may be more difficult, but are also so much more fun!
One aspect of wedding planning that a couple can go waaay out of the box with, but may not even consider in the early stages of planning, is transportation! Usually, when anyone thinks of wedding transportation, they automatically picture a limo of some sort, but there are way more options out there that are readily available to couples looking to change up this part of their wedding. Here are 4 of my most favourite ideas for fun, alternative wedding transportation!
1. Retro Police Car
It’s no secret that I am a HUGE fan of anything retro, timeless and classic. I love the idea of using a vintage police car as transportation for a wedding! How awesome would it be to show up to your ceremony and reception with sirens sounding and cherries flashing!?
2. Trolley Cart
I’m not sure how easy it is to get your hands on one of these, but it’s too cool not to mention. It would be like bringing the streets of San Francisco to your wedding and would make for some amazing photo ops :).
3. Double Decker Bus
Anyone who wants to bring a bit of U.K. flair to their big day can easily do so by swapping a traditional limo for a double decker bus. Not only would it be a great way to arrive in style to your wedding, but it could also be a fun way of transporting your guests from ceremony to reception and giving them a small “tour” of the area! Guests turn into tourists, and their ride between venues goes from boring to exciting.
4. Vintage Taxi Cab
Again, retro, vintage pieces have a special place in my heart, and this love extends way beyond wedding planning lol! Choosing a classic New York City big yellow taxi as your mode of transportation will grab your guest’s attention, and will without a doubt put a smile on their faces.
What are some other unique modes of transportation you have seen or would want to see at a wedding?
