Sports Cars

If you and your fiancé are thrill seekers who are looking for something different then you could try arriving to your wedding in a sports car. Whether your preference is Lamborghini, Ferrari, or a Maserati, arriving to a wedding ceremony in an exotic vehicle has never been so exciting! Most sports cars come in a variety of colors so you can choose one that matches your attire. Not to mention, most of them are actually quite affordable if you are renting them out for the day. Keep in mind that you’ll pay much more than a regular limousine but they are still a lot cheaper than most couples think.

Water Ways

Have you ever thought about you or your guests arriving to your wedding via a boat or even Jet Ski? If so, then this is definitely an option that you have to choose from. This would be an excellent alternative to a regular limousine, especially if you are having a destination wedding on a beach. For more outgoing couples, you can even get there on other water-based formats including canoes or paddleboards. Either way, consider water vehicles and a fun and alternative form of wedding transportation.

Vintage Vehicles

Not all wedding limos are created equal.  Would you and your fiancé like to pull up to your wedding in a Rolls-Royce? Have you ever thought about how much visual appeal a classic car could have on your wedding? Imagine the amazing shots that your videographers and photographers would be able to capture. There are a lot of popular models of vintage vehicles that you and your fiancé would be able to choose from including Chrysler 300’s, Rolls-Royce Silvers, and Bentley S2’s.

Two-Wheelers

If you are not a huge fan of being driven around then you should give two-wheeled vehicles a shot. Imagine driving away on a motorcycle after getting married or arriving on a tandem bike or scooter. This would really create frame-worthy photos and not to mention it would be a lot of fun. To prevent any mishaps, make sure that you practice riding these vehicles before getting all dressed up on your wedding day.

Horse and Carriage

Quite simply, the ultimate fairy-tale ending to a wedding has always been being drawn away by horse in a carriage with only you and your fiancé. It is what most brides dream of when growing up, and it is certainly a possibility in regards to alternative wedding transportation. The best part is that this unique and exciting Cinderella experience generally does not cost that much more than a limousine.  Although you can’t find these services on Decidio, you can always Google ‘Horse Drawn Carriages’ or ‘Wedding Carriages’ to find one in your city.

Airlift

Are you or your fiancé afraid of heights? If not, how about giving an airline entrance a shot. You could chart a helicopter to fly you into your wedding ceremony or if you are really adventurous you can land via parachute (with trained professionals obviously). However, just make sure that you are aware of the local travel laws before doing this. And do keep in mind that this can be a hefty investment unless you or your wedding planner has a few connections.

Stretch Limos

This is a classic option that combines regular limousines and transforms them into something much better. Stretch limos typically are a lot more fun than regular ones and can hold a lot more passengers too! Not to mention, being equipped with music, drinks, and stylish designs ensures that you and your bridal party will be ready to celebrate in style after the ceremony!

As you can see, there are many fun and unique alternative wedding transportation ideas out there to choose from for those couples that want something other than the traditional wedding limo.  Have you arrived to your wedding in something other than a standard limo?  If so, what made you decide on that method of wedding transportation?  How was the experience?  Would you recommend it to other brides/couples considering that option?
