Make your bride-to-be feel like a celebrity by organising a limousine for the evening. This popular transport method isn’t only for the rich and if everyone is willing to put their hand in the pocket can turn out to be actually surprisingly cheap. On top of your limo ride, you’ll receive music and champagne, perfect for pre-drinks and getting everyone fired up for the messy evening ahead. The vehicle’s generous space means you can fit lots of people in – no need to separate everyone by ordering two taxis. You can even arrange extras to be placed in the limo as a surprise such as gifts, costumes or props for the evening. Some companies will even offer Hummer limo hire for anyone looking to add that extra creative spark.
For really big parties you may wish to rent out an entire bus! Many come with luxury interior, a well-stocked bar and a great sound system. Hop from bar to bar and then return to the warm and energetic atmosphere of the bus where the party can continue.
This mode of transport is certain to create a lasting impression. Like a limo or party bus, the same perks apply – you’ll have drinks and music. You may even get to be driven by a fireman! Some are even repainted pink.
Not a cheap option, hiring a helicopter is the ultimate way of making an entrance. I’m not too sure about the alcohol rules and music availability on this one, but the thrills and scenic experience of going by air are sure to make up for it. Combine it with a spa day out, and you can get everyone’s adrenalin racing before offering the best chill down imaginable.
If you live by a river or the sea, why not push the boat out and rent out a barge for the day. You can rent out bigger boats, some of which don’t move. Many come with a crew who will do the sailing and navigating for you (as well as ensuring no-one slips overboard). Classy variants will offer the chance to treat your tastebuds with a chic lunch. Then there are those that focus purely on partying – nightclubs on water – for anyone whose more interested in getting those cocktail in. This method doubles up as a venue and transport – just double check that the bride doesn’t get seasick!
