While the wedding car is widely loved by couples, it’s not the only way to get you to the church on time.
So, if you’re ready to swap a classic motor or sports car for transport that makes a statement, start with these six wedding car alternatives, fit for every wedding style and theme.
Big red bus
Perfect for a vintage or London city styled wedding, why not hop onto an iconic big red bus to move from your ceremony to your reception? This will be of the most popular wedding car alternatives with your guests because they can join you for the ride. Keep a Polaroid handy to document the journey together!
If you fancy the idea of a private moment together after the ceremony, then transport for two (plus your driver) will be just the ticket. This old Land Rover is dolled up beautifully for the occasion, ideal for any rustic or barn wedding.
Horse and carriage
Traditional couples might feel safe choosing a vintage car for their drive, but a horse and carriage is much more theatrical! The carriage’s old-fashioned style will suit more traditional church and country house weddings.
For those who want to make a big impression at their country wedding, go all-out with a vintage tractor! Just make sure it gets a good clean up first and you’re good to go. Once you’ve reached your destination, see if you can have the tractor park up outside as a great backdrop for photographs. Perhaps the driver could even provide rides for your younger guests to keep them entertained?
If you want to arrive at the aisle in style, no mode of transport could be more glamorous than your own private helicopter! You’re getting married, so you’ll be on cloud nine. Why not let your transport take you up into the clouds too for a truly memorable journey? Choose this for your wedding if you’ve chosen a country house, tipi or marquee – somewhere with room to land!

There can only be one winning showstopper when it comes to water friendly wedding car alternatives – a boat of course! Whether your arrival involves rowing up to a pretty jetty or you choose to set sail after the ceremony with your new spouse, a boat will give your beach, river or waterfront wedding the wow-factor. It was good enough for George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin after all…
