Plenty of bridal parties pile into party buses and stretch limos, so we think one of these alternative modes of transportation would be a welcome surprise.
If you've been in River North on a Saturday night, you've seen — or more likely heard — your fair share of red and green trolleys packed with bachelor and bachelorette parties. For your wedding day, the food-and-beverage-friendly mode of transportation makes for fun photos with a vintage slant. Something about the etched windows and oak and brass interior just says "wedding." Read real brides' reviews here!
Now this is the ride Cinderella dreams are made of, because Prince Charming definitely did not pull up in a supped-up stretch limo. Nothing says romance like a horse-drawn carriage, and nothing puts a bride in a good mood like having strangers wave — and sometimes cheer — as the couple rides through town.
Sure, it's not super practical, but there's something uber-romantic about piling onto a Vespa seat and giving your beloved a tight squeeze as you speed off. We'd suggest leaving this grand departure for the end of the evening, when a little dirt on the dress won't cause a riot.
You need a ride that matches your style, and with a Swarovski crystal-embroidered dress, it's safe to say bling is your thing, so make a splash in a flashy sports car like a Lamborghini or Ferrari. Plus, your husband will thank you for the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a car from his boyhood dreams.
You're wearing a vintage dress and taking your first spin around the dance floor as husband and wife to the tune of Frank Sinatra, so pulling up in a 1955 Cadillac limousine only seems logical. Or, evoke old-school Chicago glamour with a Rolls Royce from the '40s. And with just enough room for two, you won't have to worry about any rogue groomsmen shotgunning beers in the back.
