12 Wedding Limo Alternatives & Fun Bridal Transportation Ideas

wedding car alternatives

It’s time for another roundup and today I’m sharing some alternative bridal transportation ideas from our previously featured Poptastic Bride weddings. The mood and tone of your wedding + the location of your ceremony and reception venues play a major part in deciding what transportation to choose so some of these may be irrelevant to you… Nevertheless I’m sharing them all so you can see the different non-limo ways you can get from point A to point B!

1. BICYCLES are a practical, fun, and not to mention green way to get from one place to another. It’s perfect for informal celebrations where the reception venue is quite close to the ceremony

2. A PEDICAB. Another inexpensive, green, and quite quirky way to arrive at your reception venue in style.

3. CANOES or SAILBOATS. If you’re having a lakeside or beachside ceremony, a leisurely boat ride is a lovelyway to get to places.

4. A PICKUP TRUCK. Why pay for costly transportation services when you can ride in the back of a familiar truck (and get awesome photo opportunities like this!)

Here’s another wedding that used a pickup (the groom’s, actually) to transport their bridal entourage around:

5. A WAGON. If you’re getting married in a farm, why not use what’s available. Wagons, spiffied up, make charmingly rustic getaway “cars”.

6. A GOLF CART. The solution for moving around in garden weddings and receptions in sprawling areas.

7. MOTORCYCLES. Just as practical as the bicycle but a notch edgier, motorbikes are perfect for couples who want to stay true to their non-conformist rock and roll personalities.

Another fun wedding that used a motorbike as a getaway vehicle:

8. VINTAGE CARS. If you own one — or if there’s somebody you can borrow one from — you can drive your way to the reception in totally hip fashion.

9. BUSES or CAMPERVANS. Another great, retro, and quite trendy way to transport you and your spouse and even your bridal party around.

10. A HORSE. Assuming you know how to mount and ride one, arriving at your reception via horseback lends a fairytale-like air to the celebration.

11. A CARDBOARD CAR. Having your ceremony and reception in the same place? Make a quirky cardboard car for your getaway car photo opportunity needs. 🙂

12. YOUR FEET. All that planning stressed you out so take some sweet time after the ceremony to WALK with your loved one all the way to your reception venue.

Another option is to DANCE your way to the reception area. It totally makes a fabulous entrance, as you can see below.

  1. Here’s my suggestion for number 13…a wedding trolley! They are so much fun, and I thought they created some great photo opps at my cousin’s wedding. Here is one of their pictures with the trolley. http://on.fb.me/1KIivib
