    I’ve seen people cover up with parasols. The bride gets slowly uncovered as the bms walk down the aisle.

    Or you could put up some kind of banner or barrier across the back of the aisle after everyone sits down.

    I was at a wedding just like this a few years ago and the bride was actually brought up to the ceremony site in an antique car. It worked out nicely. The rest of the bridal party walked and we could see them all coming it was kinda neat, then this car just pulled up out of nowhere- bride got out walked down the aisle and it made for some pretty pictures too.

    When we were looking at venues I looked at one  with a walk similar to this too but they provided a horse and carriage for an extra $50. That could be another option?

    If a horse is legitimately an option PLEASE DO THAT AND LET ME LIVE VICARIOUSLY THROUGH YOU.

    I love the horse idea! Especially because it seems very ‘you.’ (Yes, I’m assuming simply based on your pictures :P) But really, that would be awesome!

    What is the building near the ceremony location? Is there any chance you could hang out in there starting like half an hour prior to the ceremony starting? That way you’d be over in the area before the majority of the guests arrive. I’m kind of guessing its not an option or you would have mentioned it…. so in that case, I’d say walk because it’s the simplest option. I like the parasol idea above. 

     

     

     

    ETA: the doors are cute and I like them, but if the idea is to prevent people seeing you coming, the doors would block only a fraction of their viewpoint, if you know what I’m saying? Like the doors would hide you basically once you *got* to the aisle, but from far away guests and your FI would be able to see around them. not sure if this matters to you, just something to consider.

    @Payless:  Hmmm.. if it is a venue and they regularly have weddings there, maybe the staff has a suggestion based on what other brides have done? I’m thinking you’re best bet would be walking with parasols, or a car since it partially hides you and it’s quick. Just out of curiosity, where would the horse go after you rode it down there? The aforementioned stable? And would it be adding a logistical challenge to get your horse to/from the wedding site? Or do you board it there? (I just realized I asked you a ton of questions, sorry! Just curious about your options 🙂 )
