Welcome! I'm a newlywed who started this blog to document the planning of our September 2010 wedding, and ended up addicted to blogging! Follow our journey through life as we try to find the way to our "perfect" marriage. Happy reading!

After attending a wedding fair in Vancouver I am now inandated with emails from tons of wedding vendors, especially limousine services. As I received another email today, I thought I'd pick your fine people's brains on the subject of transporting yourself to the wedding.
I've seen everything from antique cars, to insanely large limos, to tiny smart cars or mini coopers, to Ferraris transporting brides and grooms after the ceremony. I can see why people would like antique cars. There's something classy about them that suits the grandiose texture of a wedding and adds a little romance to an otherwise mandane task. I can see why a young couple would make a statement by driving in their mini Cooper. Perhaps they are environmentalists or just outspokenly 'modest' about their preferences. I can also see why someone would take the opportunity to rent an exotic car; afterall, what's another $1,000 to rent a Ferrari for the day when there are so many other expenses to worry about?
What I'm having difficulty appreciating is the massive, prom dance limousines that seem like they are made for screaming teenagers with beer in one hand while the other is used to moon bystanders. Not cool. What's the point of driving in a 12-passenger Escalade limo anyway? Not to be critical of anyone who likes that kind of thing, I guess it just ain't my cup of tea. Not to mention that in Cyprus I'm sure limos of that size would have a tough time getting around all the round-abouts (traffic circles).
As I type this I realize that the church and the reception are at the same venue, and that we are spending the night there too. Which means we won't be driving away together...
So what do you feel is a cool vehicle to use for your wedding? Any unique ideas out there?
