First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes an all-you-can-eat buffet on a cruise ship bound for the Bahamas. After you’ve said your vows, you’re going to want to get right down to business. But before you do, you’ll have miles to go before you sleep. Why not make your big day even more memorable with one of these nontraditional methods of wedding transportation?
Win bonus points for originality at your wedding. Fling the flowers over your shoulder, hike up your gown, and hop into a golf cart with your new hubby. You don’t have to be a golfer to love a golf cart, which provides a low-cost way to safely get around your new neighborhood. There are lots of different places where you can rent them, like your local country club, or you could purchase one to keep for tailgates and running errands. Road Rat Motors has a selection of different models to choose from, and these are street-legal so safe on regular roads. They’re also much more fuel-efficient than a limo.
Turning into a pumpkin at midnight is highly underrated. Commandeer (or rent) a horse-drawn carriage to take you to your honeymoon suite. Or just go for a joyride around the block a few times. Either way, it’s a creative and romantic transportation option that will make for a magic moment you will never forget. Carriage services, like Loon Meadow Farm, use elegant white Percherons and black Spotted Draft horses.
Brides, show your man that you’re willing to pull your own weight right from the start of your marriage by making your getaway together on a tandem bike. These bikes are not just for movies. They’re equipped with two seats and two sets of pedals. It’s the best workout you and your soul mate can get with your clothes on. If you’re not ready to commit to a tandem bike for the long term, that’s OK. Many shops rent these crazy bicycles built for two.
Hot Air Balloons
Really surprise your wedding guests by climbing into a hot air balloon and ascending skyward. Rocky Mountain Hot Air has an ordained minister on staff, who can actually marry you in mid-air. Admittedly, this is a novel idea that’s not for everybody, and eventually you’ll have to come back down to earth, but for those few adventurous souls who dare to try it, going on a hot air balloon ride with your honey is a blast and a half.
