You’ve got a stunning dress, a troupe of fabulous bridesmaids, and the love of your life waiting at the altar – all that’s left to do is get to the venue.
To make an unforgettable entrance at your wedding, you need to find the perfect mode of transport to take you there. Whether you love the traditional look of classic cars, or want something a little more modern, there are lots of unique wedding transport options out there. The main factors you’ll need to consider are budget, party size, and your wedding theme or style.
Whatever your wedding vibe, there’s a mode of transportation that will make an impression among your guests. From boho bikes to slick sports cars, here are 10 great wedding transport ideas to help you arrive in style.
Classic Wedding Car
Classic wedding cars never go out of style. From stately Rolls Royces to cute vintage VW bugs, there are hundreds of wedding cars you can choose to take you to your wedding. With beautiful interiors and pristine ribbons attached to the front, these cars are both unmistakable and unforgettable. Make sure you check there are enough seats for your wedding party to squeeze in, or hire multiple cars so you can all arrive together.
Looking for something a little more rugged? Roar into your venue on a chauffeured motorbike. Ride pillion behind a qualified rider who’ll escort you to the venue in spectacular style, drawing all eyes to you and your wedding party as you rumble through the streets. If you’re a motorcyclist yourself, you can always take the handlebars and drive yourself to your wedding on the bike of your dreams – be it a classic Harley or a striking superbike.
Arrive like a superstar in a showstopping supercar. Favoured by A-list celebrities and sports stars alike, there’s nothing quite like a luxury sports car for making a serious entrance. Many firms offer luxury vehicles like these for wedding hire, including Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Porsches and more sensational sports car brands. It’s perfect for both bridal parties and groomsmen who want to turn heads as they arrive.
If there are a fair few people in your wedding party, coordinating your transport can be tricky. But for a busload of people, there’s only one solution: a bus. Tootle through town in an adorable retro-style bus, before arriving at your venue in stunning vintage style. Lots of companies include bunting, flowers, ribbons and other decor with their buses – and you can choose from lots of different options, from old school buses to double deckers. It’s the perfect way to arrive together as a group.
Tuck your wedding dress into your socks – tandem bicycles are the perfect exit vehicle for just-married couples. Eco-friendly and super romantic, these two-seater bikes are ideal for a short cycle from the wedding venue to the bridal suite. They also offer the cutest photo opportunities, so make sure you hire your tandem bike for a little longer than you need it. They’re also a cute way for the groom and best man or bride and maid of honour to arrive at the venue together.
For a traditional, lavish arrival, a horse and carriage is perfect. Take a quick tour of the town before you reach your venue, so you can make the most of this unique experience. Whether you choose the full Cinderella experience, complete with footmen and top hats, or select a more relaxed horse and carriage approach, it’s a one-of-a-kind mode of transport that you’re sure to remember forever.
Classy, stylish, and smooth, the limousine is a classic choice for many premium occasions – and weddings are no exception. Many limo companies offer flowers, champagne, and other luxury treats as standard, so it’s a fabulous way for your bridal party to start the celebrations ahead of the ceremony. For an arrival with a little more flash, upgrade your limousine to a stretch Hummer. It’s a surefire way for the groom and his gang to make a serious entrance.
A taxi may not seem the most glamorous way to arrive at your wedding, but there’s something quietly romantic about the classic black cab. It’s unpretentious yet elegant, and guaranteed to get you and your group there in simple chic style. If you let the cab company know you’re booking for a wedding party in advance, there’s always a chance they’ll throw some perks your way, too.
Get pumped for your big day by hiring a swanky party bus for your wedding transport. This option is great for ensuring your entire party can arrive at the same time. There are lots of options to choose from – think pink buses, dancefloor buses, karaoke buses – and most companies will dress your bus up for the occasion, too. Compile a party bus playlist that your driver can play to help keep the pre-wedding jitters at bay.
Boho couples will love arriving at the venue in a decked-out retro campervan. With a ribbon on the front and space to seat up to 7 guests, VW campers are a gorgeous way to get to your wedding. There are campervans out there in a whole range of colours, so you can even coordinate your wedding transport to your wedding’s colour scheme. Like bicycles, campervans make for fabulous photos – so make sure to get plenty of snaps in and around your camper.
These ideas are sure to inspire – but ultimately you can only choose one way to arrive at your wedding. Need a little help deciding on the right form of wedding transport to take? Check out our guide to choosing the best wedding transport for your wedding.
