The wedding getaway car is a classic tradition. However, if you’re looking for something a bit more unique and memorable, then these fun, non-traditional alternatives to the wedding getaway car are just what you need!

From vintage cars to horse-drawn carriages and even hot air balloons, there are plenty of creative ways to drive off in style on your big day. Windows on the Water can work alongside you to create your perfect day and brainstorm your perfect getaway vehicle as well. 

Alternatives to the Wedding Getaway Car

If you aren’t a fan of just driving off after your wedding in the traditional getaway car, here are a few other suggestions of how you can ride off in style:

Horse-Drawn Carriage

A horse-drawn carriage is the perfect romantic way to leave your wedding venue. Imagine being whisked away in style, surrounded by your closest friends and family! The sound of the horses’ hooves and the gentle jingle of their harnesses will create an unforgettable atmosphere. 

Plus, with the help of a professional driver and the spectacular views, you’ll be sure to have the perfect ride!

Vintage Car 

If you prefer a more classic look for your wedding getaway car, then why not choose a vintage vehicle? You could opt for a timeless classic such as an old-fashioned Rolls Royce or Ford Model A. 

Alternatively, you could rent a vintage VW camper van and turn it into the perfect photo booth for your guests. Either way, a vintage car is sure to make a stylish statement as you drive off in style! 

Hot Air Balloon

For an even more unique and non-traditional alternative to the wedding getaway car, why not take to the skies? Hot air balloons are a truly breathtaking way to make your grand exit. 

Imagine saying your goodbyes as you drift away in a basket above the clouds! The colorful canopy will create a spectacular sight, and it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience for you and your partner. 


Riding off on your favorite motorcycle, moped, or bike is a great way to make a statement and have some fun. And with the right accessories, such as custom handlebar flags and personalized helmets, you can add that extra special touch to your big day. 

Not only will this make for an unforgettable sendoff, but it’s also a great way to get some fresh air and have some quality time together! 


Perfect for couples who love the great outdoors and wintertime, skiing off into the sunset is a truly unique way to end your special day. 

You can hire a professional photographer to capture the moment when you and your partner ski away in tandem. Getting married at your favorite ski resort is also an excellent way to make sure everyone can join you on your memorable exit while celebrating your passion for the snowy slopes!

Pickup Truck

Some couples prefer simpler times, and perhaps there’s no better way to capture that feeling than by leaving your wedding in the bed of a rustic pickup truck. The freedom and nostalgia of a pickup truck getaway is truly one for the books. And you can use it to transport decorations and other wedding supplies, as well as your guests’ belongings. 

No matter which vehicle you choose for your wedding day, the most important thing is that it reflects who you are as a couple and celebrates this special moment in style. So whatever way you decide to drive off in style, make sure it’s an unforgettable experience!
