I think it’s way over the top.  But it’s your wedding, not mine!

I’ve never seen one in real life but I do find them a little over the top/cheesy, to be totally honest with you. However, that would be as unexpected as me getting a huge poofy ballgown with a tiara. It’s just not my bag. But if it’s your bag, that’s awesome and I think you should do it.

@VictoriaK1990:  Personally, I think it’s cheesy…a friend of mine did it and her dress smelled like poo for cocktail hour, damn horse farted the whole way over.

@VictoriaK1990:  …all I can think is, ” I hope that horse isn’t blowing apple farts in the bride’s face”

Cause horses fart…a lot

I am not a fan. A friend of mine did this at her wedding and it was just another item on a long list of tacky choices. What about a trolley or a cute classic car?

@VictoriaK1990:  I think it’s fine and classic. If that’s what you’d like, DO IT! I highly doubt you’ll smell like poo.

Well, it seemed normal in Will & Kate’s wedding lol.

It’s your day… go for it. I would think it’s a bit OTT, but who am I to judge? Then again, I think most weddings are OTT. Some would say my ring is OTT. To each their own.

If it’s normally done where you live, it’s fine.  I had one because I got married in a tourist town where horse-drawn carriages are all over the place.  But it was a quick ride around downtown for DH and me after the ceremony.  There was no big entrance in the carriage.

If people normally get a limo in your area, I think the carriage is over the top and likely to piss off people driving on the roads around you.

Edited to add:  Your DF doesn’t like classic cars???  What the heck is wrong with him?
