Did you know that travel and tourism account for 2.7% of the United States’ gross domestic product (GDP)? People travel for countless reasons. Family vacations, solo adventures, and weddings all count for a huge portion of recreational travel.
People travel for weddings all the time. Even if you have your wedding locally, there is still a lot of travel required on your big day. You have to get to the ceremony location, travel to the picture backdrop, and then make your way to the reception. Some people are fortunate enough to have all three of those activities take place on in the same spot, but those are few and far between.
Brides and grooms typically want to ride around in style on the happiest day of their lives. What’s the best way to do that? It’s not a limo, it’s actually with a horse carriage tour. Horse drawn carriage tours are a great way to parade around on your wedding day. If you want to incorporate a horse carriage and you’re not sure how, fear not. Here are three great ways to include a horse drawn carriage for your wedding.
Element of Surprise
Use the carriage as a way to surprise your future spouse to make a lasting memory of the day you said I do. Seeing the look on their face when they view the beautiful horse and carriage outside of the church for the first time will be priceless.
The Bride Has Arrived
If you want to use a carriage for your wedding but don’t know how, have the bride arrive at the ceremony site in the carriage. The wedding guests will be in awe when they see the bride exit the unique vehicle and walk down the aisle. It may also be sentimental to include the person that is giving the bride away in the carriage alongside her. That way they can walk right into the ceremony as soon as they arrive.
Not only can you ride in style with a horse drawn carriage, you can take some beautiful pictures as well. You and your bridal party will look stunning posing in front of the majestic horse and romantic carriage in all of your wedding photos.
If you or someone you know is getting married, consider using a horse carriage tour to make your wedding fabulous!
