Sometimes the most overlooked part of a wedding is how you’re getting to your event! After a little research, we came up with a list of great choices for transportation on your big day. From traditional limos, whimsical carriages to rustic wagons, here's a starting point as you research.

London Taxi 

Limos are synonymous with wedding transportation, so I asked around and Matchless Limos had a lot of great reviews. Of course they have the classic stretch limos, but they have some other, exceptional choices to fit a variety of brides. Some of my favorites include the vintage blue Jaguar, London taxi and the Ford Flex.

The great thing about Sugar Creek Carriages is they offer not only the “Cinderella” style, also known as the Royal Vis –a- Vie carriage, for princess brides. They offer a variety of fun choices like a western-style covered wagon and an original stagecoach for brides who want to add a little country-flavor to their wedding.

 

F.A.D.D.S Party Bus

Telephone: 615-754-2221

F.A.D.D.S is a family-owned business that offers a variety of party buses and trolleys for “day of” or even the “night before” for the bachelorette party. We picked out our favorites to show but they offer several different buses, each with their own theme. My personal favorites are the two trolleys. It’s serves as a little piece of retro-metro flair.

Granted golf carts don’t have to be limited to outdoor weddings, everyone has their own special ideas, but they’re perfect for those relaxed afternoon celebrations. Tennessee Golf Carts rents out club cars that seat anywhere from two to six people and also offer a utility size.

East Rider Motorcycle Rental

Vespa GTS 250cc

Eagle Rider Motorcycle Rentals have some of the coolest options when it comes to transportation. They rent out motorcycles, ATV’s, dirt bikes and, my much loved, scooters. They have everything from the Harley Davidson Night Rod to super cute Vespas. Of course renting motorcycles have restrictions, like being 21 years-old and having a valid license. But if you qualify and meet the restrictions, leaving the party in a Harley Davidson Road King could be the icing on the cake for you and your groom.

I have a long list of loves. I love a hand-written letter, pictures of elephants, the color green and orange juice. But nothing trumps my passion and my fascination…writing and weddings. When I came across ABG I quickly realized that I wanted to be a part of their journey. I couldn’t be more appreciative for the chance that she’s given me. I’m crossing my fingers, looking for four-leaf clovers and embracing any good karma coming my way…I’d like to stay awhile.
