Looking to get to the church on time? We’ve got 8 different forms of fab wedding transportation ideas for your big day!
Vintage brides will love a vintage bicycle for this big day – they make a fun prop for your wedding photos or you could actually ride one to the venue. Just make sure the journey’s not up hill!
The ultimate Eco-friendly way to arrive at your ceremony! If you live close to the venue, or there’s a picturesque approach, why not make the most of it and walk there with your dad and bridesmaids?
This one is a great wedding transportation idea for the groom. If your man is nervous about arriving on his own, why not make the journey more comfortable – and exciting – and arrive en masse, in a classic Routemaster bus!
That way, you can all travel to the wedding reception venue together and chat about how incredible the ceremony was.
Whether you opt for classic or sporty, cars are still the most popular way of getting to the church on time. Think about the season in which you’re marrying before you book one, though.
A 1920’s classic might not be the best choice for a mid-winter celebration.
If you’re a country-loving couple, why not ask the local farmer if you borrow one of his tractors? It’s a fun photo opportunity – you could even get some wedding wellies to complete the look!
Horse and carriage
If you’ve always dreamed of being a princess on your big day, there’s really only one way to arrive when it comes to wedding transportation – horse and carriage. We recommend hiring one with a hood, just in case of bad weather.
To make a Made in Chelsea-style arrival, a helicopter has to be the most cosmopolitan way to make your entrance. Again, grooms usually favour this mode of transport as most wedding dresses aren’t easily accommodated in the small cockpit interior!
Perfect for an oriental-themed wedding, a Tuk Tuk is essentially a motorised rickshaw. It’s highly maneuverable making it the ideal wedding transportation choice if access to the venue is tight. They’re unique, quirky and will certainly help make your wedding stand out from the crowd.
If you’re tying the knot abroad, why not go the ‘whole wedding transportation hog’ and arrive at your beach ceremony riding an elephant! “I’m so pleased my Dad and I arrived to the beach ceremony on top of Dahl the elephant,” says real bride Julia. “ I’ve always loved elephants, and to have such a beautiful, magnificent animal present at our day was just incredible. It certainly made our day unique! Our guests enjoyed feeding her and the rides along the beach too!”
Stay the night before
One of the quickest ways to arrive at your ceremony is to stay at the wedding venue the night before! All-inclusive packages may include this option, leaving you and your bridesmaids to wake up slowly and get ready in your own time, without the added stress of traffic jams.
