Beyond the Limo
There’s more than one way to roll.
Looking for a creative ride to or from your wedding? Cool conveyances abound, and they’ll help you make a style statement to be remembered.
Heather O’Donnell of Wilmington was able to travel with her wedding party, parents and photographers via charter bus. “It was really fun to have everyone included,” O’Donnell says. Chartering a shuttle bus is especially helpful if the wedding or reception site is far from where guests are staying. One service is Delaware Express. Call 454-7800. Reach Eagle Transportation Services at (800) 669-5460.
A horse-drawn carriage can be terribly romantic. Circle C Outfit in Bridgeville will transport its beautiful white vis-à-vis carriage and western-style buggies anywhere in the state. Call 337-8828.
Another great idea: “My friend rented an antique trolley to take everyone from the wedding ceremony to the reception,” says Adrienne Kleintop of Newark. The not-so-antique-but-still-fun Jolly Trolley of Rehoboth Beach charters trolleys by the hour. Call 227-1197.
If you like fancy cars, Buker Limousine and Transportation Service in Newark (234-7600) will provide three hours of chauffeured Rolls-Royce service with amenities for $375. “We have two cars with great heat and air conditioning, which is rare in antique Rolls-Royces,” owner Bob Buker says.
If you prefer to drive yourself, many rental companies offer luxury cars. If your budget dictates a gas-sipping econo-ride, Philly Car Share of Wilmington has three Toyota Priuses and a Mini Cooper at four Wilmington locations for $39 to $69 a day.
