So my wedding will be in the summer and I thought about getting picked up in a horse carriage after the reception or the ceremony…not sure which one to do..how do people generally feel about horse carriages right down town, is it too much?

I think it’s a bit too showy, but really it all depends on your personal style, your guests, and the theme you’re trying to create. I also think it’s too stressful on the horses to make them clomp around in traffic. The ones in Central Park always look glum.

As a horse person myself, any carriage company worth their salt would ensure they horse would be fine in whatever environment you choose. Look at reviews!!!
Though typically it’s not worth the cost – Even having a horse yourself that can pull a carriage (like mine!) gets pricey with trailering costs, carriage upkeep, time for the drive, etc – simply depends on your budget and what kind of effect you’re going for!

We’re getting married at a historic plantation and we’re getting the horse and carriage, I think they go well together. Plus there’s a horse and carraige place right down the street. I say if you really want it, go for it. I love the pictures with the carriages, I think they’re so romantic.

I’m having one and I have always dream of having one since I’m getting married at an antebellum mansion. I’m not getting married in an urban area though. If this is what you want and it will make you happy, you should go for it! 🙂

Thank you Ladies! I decided on going with a vintage limo instead since I am getting married in an urban area and the cost of horses is pretty high the limo seemed more appropriate 🙂
Here’s a picture of what it will look like:

We are having a rustic ceremony (getting married in a hay field in front of a dead tree. I know sounds weird but check out the pic!) Add a sunset & its beautiful. I want to have a horse & carriage entrance to add to the theme, but alas $500 isn’t in the budget for it. 🙁 Would have been beautiful though.
