What about a horse drawn carriage? Put all your bridesmaids in there and have them all come out of that? I don’t see why two carriages would be weird–you could have the white horse and they could have the brown, lol.

But is anybody going to see them come out of the car? Won’t they be there like, 30 minutes early? I don’t get how your processional works….

We had a plantation wedding and the girls walked out of the house. This place does do horse and carriage for the bride, but I opted out.

What if you just had the bridesmaids out there lik ethe groomsmen are?  I know its not ideal but maybe it would work.

Hmmmmm. Yeah you don’t have a lot of options. Plus, climbing out of a car can be awkward in a dress.

If the carriage is big enough (one of those large group ones) everyone could pile in =]

Is there a coordinator at the park you could talk to and see what brides have done in the past? I doubt you’re the only one trying to maintain some authenticity. And even so, I don’t think using a car would necessarily detract from it. It’s not like you’re wearing a plantation wedding dress with a hoop skirt.

I would imagine you coudl contact some car people….I know that sometimes, it’s not that they have their own rental company, but sometimes people who actually own the car rent it out for the time. But 5 girls is kind of a lot for a car.

Would it work to have the carriage drop off all or most of the bridesmaids, and then to go back for you, or you and your MOH?  Would that be a ton of wait time?
