Well, I thought I had seen it all until last Saturday! The thundering roar of a bright red big rig soon got me out of the office. The Bride and Groom of the day clearly had decided to arrive in the most magnificent of fashions as they hopped out of this awesome vehicle. (Hats off to the driver who managed to navigate the drive!) This got me thinking, what are the top ten best ways for you and your partner to arrive at your venue in a way no one will ever forget? In no particular order:
1. Vintage Bus
All the luxury without the rabble! Many people have always wanted to experience what it is like on an open top bus, this could be your chance! You get the added benefit of space for your friends and family on the way to the venue!
2. Rolls Royce
Nothing exudes more style and prestige than a Rolls Royce. This luxury car comes with every feature imaginable for you to enjoy on your way to your big day. It’s a dream for many to even sit in such a vehicle. It’s an unforgettable experience to be driven somewhere in one.
3. Horse Drawn Carriage
Regal, yet surprisingly affordable! This carriage seats up to 4 people and comes in a range of different colours. Sure, you are going to take a while to get to where you’re going… but at least you can make the most of this once in a lifetime experience! Just make sure it’s not too far for the horses to go!
4. Steam Traction Engine
Horse and Cart not slow enough for you to enjoy the moment? This should do the trick! It doesn’t come much more classic and historical than this. Some companies even give you the opportunity to drive it yourself. It’s bound to make quite the entrance.
Okay, so maybe slow isn’t for you. At the other end of the spectrum, you could hire a supercar! The car pictured above is a Lamborghini LP560 Spider and has all the speed and all the style you could hope for. Of course, you could hire a Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche and all other manner of fast cars as well!
6. Big Rig
As mentioned before, A big rig does make for a really BIG entrance. If your big day calls for a big vehicle, then why not? The experience isn’t complete however until you honk the horn so make sure you give all your friends and family a jump before leaving the cabin!
7. Hot Air Balloon
Who needs the road when you can touch the clouds with your one beloved on your special day? Hot air balloons are available to hire for your wedding with varying cabin sizes so you can take as many or as few people as you would like with you. Make sure to have your guests bring their sunglasses with them so they can keep their eye’s in the sky!
Here’s a blast from the past! It’s hard to not see a campervan on the road and point it out. It has to be one of the most iconic and fun vehicles to have ever been produced. One sure way of a stylish and cosy arrival!
If you have farming roots in your family and you want to celebrate your heritage, a tractor can be a very fun way to do that. There are lots of options to personalise the carriage and the idea itself does seem very romantic.
It was always going to make the list… You’re looking to make a statement? A Helicopter could be the way to go! A flight plan will be chartered for you and costs a lot less than you might originally think. It’s a great way to get an aerial view of your venue before you arrive.
