BRIDES Florida: Fun Transportation Ideas for Your Miami Wedding

Florida, Local, Planning Tips

Getaway cars in Miami don't need to have four wheels. Cruise off by land or sea on your first ride as husband and wife in one of these five modes of transportation.

Sail off by Yacht
You're in Miami, so take advantage of your seaside location and switch out the car for a private yacht setting sail from the Fontainebleau marina just across from the resort on Miami Beach. The iconic oceanfront hotel also makes for the perfect wedding night stay, and is large enough — there's over 1,500 rooms — to accommodate all of your out-of-town guests who will love spending the next day poolside at the iconic spot where James Bond and Goldfinger sat for a game of gin rummy in the 1964 film.

Cruise in a Classic Car
Brides looking for a glam getaway can take a seat in a classic luxury car like a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud or Phantom Princess Edition for an exit that's sure to make a scene — while offering white-glove service, champagne, and strawberries. For a stylish entry for you and your bridal party, ride in one of Florian's Classics' chauffeured Rolls-Royces to the ceremony. Read real brides' reviews here!

Speed Away by Boat
Thriller Miami's power catamaran is a popular choice for newlyweds who want to speed off into the sunset on Miami's waters. While making your grand getaway, squeeze in a tour of Star Island and Miami's mansions seen up close from the open-top speed boat.

Cycle South Beach
Take your first ride as a married couple along Miami Beach the most romantic way possible — by beach cruiser. Reserve your cruiser from a spot like Bike and Roll and then set off from the ceremony along Ocean Drive admiring local landmarks and the distinct Art Deco architecture, later stopping to squeeze in a smooch or two while cruising along the beach.

Take to the Sea by Jet Ski
After an oceanfront ceremony, switch out of your wedding day duds and don a more beachworthy ensemble as you make your exit on the back of a jet ski (with rentals offered by most Ocean Drive hotels like the Stanton and The Betsy). Planners can even make arrangements for a private yacht waiting in the distance where you can spend your wedding night on board feeling just like the rich and famous who call this city home.
