You're not supposed to worry about a thing on your wedding day — not a cell phone, not car keys, not a car, nothing. Ensure your chariot awaits whenever you need a lift (and it shouldn't be chauffeured by your parents) with any of these fun, tried-and-true wedding transportation options in Houston.
Chauffeurs wear a cap and white gloves with a dark suit and red tie when driving their cars — a 1963 Rolls Royce convertible, a 1965 Rolls Royce Princess, and a 1960 Bentley Silver limousine. The fleet also includes a Rolls Royce golf cart for use on private property, a red trolley bus for 24 passengers, and a 1953 Chevy pickup truck for bridal portraits. One of the most unique bonuses of booking your wedding ride with Jordan Limousines is that you can make a weekday appointment to take photos (bridal portrait, maybe?) with your car. On the big day, expect to see your new married name on the long, European style license plate, bottled water and soft drinks in the car, and a driver who's willing to make side trips for pictures with the car. Your driver may even have some special location ideas up his sleeve! Read real brides reviews here!
Houston Wedding Horses
You feel like Cinderella marrying her prince, so why not go full-on fairytale? Make your grand entrance as a married couple on a pair of white horses, have your knight in shining armor ride up on his own steed, or depart for your honeymoon in a horse-drawn carriage for two. A family-run company in business for 12 years, Houston Wedding Horses specializes in South Asian and Indian weddings. (The groom arriving on a decked-out white horse is one of the traditional Indian wedding rituals.) And don't worry about any rogue animals: all of the horses are specially trained and have a calm demeanor.
Sam's Limousine and Transportation
A seasoned, family-owned and -operated company with more than three decades of experience transporting Houstonians, Sam's Limousine and Transportation delivers "extensive services to fulfill all of your transportation needs with first-rate customer care and safety as our top priorities." They have a variety of luxury vehicles, including sedans, SUVs, stretch limousines, SUV limousines, Mercedes Sprinters, mini buses, party buses, limo buses, mini coaches, and charter buses. Wedding packages start from single transfers to accommodations for the entire wedding — their motto being: "no wedding is too small or too big." Read real brides reviews here!
The Original Trolley Company
Give your guests a taste of nostalgia while they ride and mingle in a charming trolley — complete with a brass bell and leather wraparound seating. Based in Sugar Land, The Original Trolley Company charter service has a trio of old-fashioned trolley buses that have been completely refurbished to like-new condition. They have red, green, and pearl white, all of which are fully air-conditioned and heated and fit up to 26 passengers. The trolleys are available all over the Houston area and beyond, including Conroe and Galveston. If you prefer a traditional stretch limo, they have that, too — with three LCD 7-inch TVs, fiber optic strip lighting, a bar, and mood lights. Limos comfortably seat eight to 12.

R.A Luxury Transport
A smaller company with an exclusively Rolls Royce car collection, R.A Luxury Transport has a classic 1961 Rolls Royce Silver Cloud with Extended Base (and a rear roll-up window for privacy) and two new Ghosts — one white and one black. No matter which you choose, you will be chauffeured in style. Packages include a bottle of champagne and custom front plates with your new last name.
It's Houston's jitney shuttle service with seating for 10 to 14 passengers, but The Wave isn't just an on-demand designated driver for weekend warriors. It's also available for private rental service with event coordination services. Think of the vehicle itself as a "hybrid between a taxi, a limo, and a public bus" with an upgraded stereo, televisions, lights, and other luxuries you'd find in a limousine lift.
