It’s Your Wedding, Too: Ride Off Like a Man

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Be honest: Most of you cringe at the idea of leaving your upcoming nuptials in a horse-drawn carriage with your new bride. While she may have been envisioning riding away from her wedding like royalty with her new Prince Charming beside her, you’re probably thinking that leaving your wedding ceremony in a carriage is only appropriate if you’re an heir to the throne or you belong in a Disney movie. How can you find a solution to your transportation woes that will leave both of you happy (and not stranded at your wedding destination)?

Ambassador Limousine, a premier Tampa limo and luxury car rental service that serves the greater central Florida area, offers advice for several transportation options you should consider before the big day. If you’re looking for a low-cost or eco-friendly option for your wedding day, consider riding off on two bicycles or even a bicycle built for two. Is your fiancée cringing at the idea of riding a bike while wearing her wedding dress? No problem: Another low-cost alternative would be to rent a Vespa or motor scooter, which typically costs between $35 and $60 for two hours.

Not interested in do-it-yourself modes of transportation while wearing a tuxedo? Fair enough. There’s always the classic stretch Tampa wedding limo or vintage car like the Rolls Royce if you want to create that classy, romantic feeling your bride desires without sitting downwind of a horse. And if you’re feeling exceptionally romantic, yes, you can opt for the aforementioned horse-drawn carriage.

While selecting a ride for you and your bride is important, don’t forget about the other people in attendance you’ll need to provide transportation for — your wedding party. Because it’s unlikely your wedding party will be keen on the idea of cycling or scooting around town for your nuptials, make sure you arrange for them to get from the wedding venue to the reception in a fun and safe way. If you decide to rent your pals a stretch limo, throw in a few disposable cameras and ask your buddies to take photos in the limos on the big day. (You might want to ask them to keep it PG-rated, but that’s your call.) If you aren’t keen on having the bridesmaids and groomsmen leave the ceremony in their respective limos, consider renting them a party bus so they can grab a brew or sip on champagne while they’re en route to the reception. If you live in a large city like San Francisco or Savannah and want a more unconventional mode of transportation, see if you can arrange for them to snag a ride on a trolley or a cable car.

Once you select a preferred method of transportation, your planning isn’t over quite yet. With the Internet brimming with photos, it’s easier for companies to take photos from Google Images than it is to take original photos of their transportation fleet, which can leave a big discrepancy between what you see online and what arrives on your wedding day. Before making any commitments, check out your vehicle in person to ensure you’re getting what you’re paying for.
