A Carriage Ride for Dad

With Father’s Day less than a week away, you might be looking for the perfect gift for your dad. For an unusual day out that he’ll love, consider a carriage ride.

A carriage ride for dad can be the basis of a fun day out. Whether you treat your parents, go out as a family, or make it a guy’s day out, the carriage means he doesn’t have to do the driving. This means he can enjoy a drink with lunch or at the ballgame, or just relax and take in the scenery.


A wagonette is a great choice to give a group a day out unlike any other. It offers a fun, relaxed atmosphere that is perfect for a tour of his favorite places. Alternatively, a vis-a-vis carriage is an excellent choice for a family day out. This can be a chance for the special dad in your life to tell you all the stories and bad jokes he loves while you enjoy the ride!

A Graduation Treat

Graduation is a special occasion, and one that can be marked in many different ways. One great way to celebrate is with a carriage ride. Whether you treat your student to a fun ride to the ceremony or from the ceremony to a party after, a carriage is a great choice of transportation.


While a Cinderella carriage might be a bit too formal for a graduation, a wagonette can be the perfect choice for a group of friends to go from point A to point B. A group dressed in their gowns, tossing their mortarboards in the air while sitting in the open air of the wagonette can make for a graduation photo everyone will love.

If you’re planning a more formal party for after the ceremony, consider arriving in a vis-a-vis carriage. This is a fantastic way to make a big entrance to a family celebration, and one that will make the event even more special and memorable.

Where Was the Carriage?

By now, you’ve almost certainly seen photos of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s fabulous wedding in Italy. The couple’s nuptials took place at a fort in Florence and followed a rehearsal dinner and party at the palace of Versailles. Their two-country extravaganza had all the fairy tale elements you could expect, except one. It was missing a wedding carriage!


The couple could have used a carriage for the arrival of the wedding party at both their rehearsal and wedding. A Cinderella carriage or a classic vis-a-vis carriage would have suited the venue and style of their events. A carriage ride is something magical whether you’re a celebrity or not.

A carriage is also a way of making your wedding even more special. You ride in cars every day of your life, but a carriage ride is something different. It makes you turn heads and stand out from the crowd. This is something that might come naturally to Kim and Kanye, but on a wedding day it should be a given for any couple.

If you want to do one better than Kim and Kanye for your Northern California wedding, give us a call today! We can help you find the perfect carriage for your wedding day.

Carriage Rides for Kids

A carriage is something special that many of your guests will want to try out. If you’re including children at your wedding, a carriage ride for them can really make their day.

The little girls at your wedding, including your flower girl, will truly feel like a fairytale princess in a Cinderella carriage. They only need a short ride, and it can be a great way to keep them entertained during your reception.


For the boys, a ride on a wagonette is just the thing. Be warned, though, many of the older boys — including the groom, his dad, your dad, and the groomsmen — might want in on the fun. Again, only a short ride is needed and can offer a great bit of entertainment for your guests.

Carriages are a huge attraction, and can make any event more fun. Big kids and little kids will love to be included in what will be an iconic part of your perfect wedding day.

Wedding Themes for Summer

Summer is just around the corner, and it’s a season that is perfect for many wedding themes. The warmer weather means you can safely plan an outdoor wedding, too. Here are some great themes that are perfect for summer weddings.


4th of July/Independence Day

The ultimate summer holiday is an excellent theme for a wedding, too. Use red, white, and blue for your wedding colors, offer guests sparklers for your departure, and plan a big fireworks display. You can use this as the basis for a relaxed wedding with a barbecue style menu, too.


A popular theme any time of year, rustic weddings really come into their own in the summer. Outdoor weddings with bales of hay for seating offer a real down home feel that is perfect for this theme. Consider having your bridal party arrive in true rustic style with a wagonette carriage.

Glamorous Vintage

Whether you opt for 1920s, 1940s, or earlier, vintage is a perfect summer wedding theme. Draw on the best parts of years past to create an overall style that is beautiful and timeless. A Victoria carriage is an excellent choice if you’re looking for a timelessly classic way to arrive at your wedding.

Whatever theme you choose for your summer wedding in Northern California, a carriage can add something wonderful to your big day. To find out more, give us a call today!
