We’re here today with a guide to the most unique ways to get around the national capital region! When it comes to getting around in style for your wedding, there are many options beyond the traditional. Consider some unique DC area wedding transportation options… with a little more personality! Wedding wheels options from a classic, vintage luxury ride to a horse drawn carriage, there are tons of fun options to express your style!
Vintage and Antique Cars
Can this be considered as your “something old”? There’s nothing like a classic, luxury car to really add a little glam and style to your wedding! Whether you choose a Victorian-era ride or a vintage pickup truck, just imagine all the great photo ops you’ll have!
Wedding day transportation – there’s an app for that! Uber is more than your personal, on-demand driver for a night out on the town in the city. They now offer wedding day services! You can even request a custom Uber promo code for your wedding, so new users and out-of-town wedding guests can try Uber for free and arrive at your wedding on time and in style!
Rickshaws + Pedicabs
Eco-friendly and cozy, consider getting whisked away in a pedicab! Make a playful getaway in the city with a modern ride on a bike taxi for a memorable exit.

Horse Drawn Carriage
Talk about a truly fairytale wedding! Your stately affair will begin with an arrival fit for a princess. You can even arrange for a few carriages to accommodate your entire wedding party for a truly royal affair. Our advice? Consider a fully enclosed carriage to provide protection from any yucky weather.
Add a little charm and character to your wedding day transportation! Let guests hop on a trolley – which can accommodate up to 25 to 35 people – for a charming ride to and from or arrange for a city tour during your wedding weekend! Whatever you choose, keep in mind that trolleys travel at a slow pace!
Shuttles are a perfect option for helping out-of-town guests get to and from – that way, you and your guests will have peace of mind about navigating an unfamiliar city and arriving on time! Charter buses and shuttles can usually accommodate up to 55-60 passengers and, with a couple of trips, can transport guests from a designated hotel to your wedding venue.
