Classy Winter Funeral Transportation

Sadly, death is part of our lives and when it takes someone we love away from us, the feeling can be excruciatingly painful. At the same time though, most people will want their family members’ and friends’ funerals to reflect a lifetime of beauty, grace, good deeds and dignity.


The transportation you choose for a funeral can be quite important when it comes to offering your beloved the kind of farewell he/she is truly worthy of. Here are some ideas for a classy winter funeral transportation:

  • A horse-drawn glass sided hearse. This will add elegance to the way your beloved friend or family member is transported. The enclosed casket space in the hearse and its entire design will add dignity to such a difficult moment.
  • An undertakers wagon. If you don’t want the casket to be transported in a closed space, an undertakers’ wagon is a good choice for you. This will leave you with enough space to add the flowers and the funeral flower arrangements on top and on the side of the casket.
  • A motorcycle-drawn hearse. If you want your friend or family member’s funeral to reflect what their life was about, a motorcycle-drawn hearse will be a good option for you. Dignified and non-conformist, this type of funeral transportation is a good option especially for those who lived their lives in a non-traditional way – and would have liked their funeral to be the same.

Here at Vintage Carriage Company, we want to be there for you in these times of challenge. We know the death of a loved one is very difficult and we know just how painful it can be. Our hearses and wagons stand at your disposal for the funeral transportation so please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to learn more about them.

Celebrate the New Year Under the Stars

November is slowly fading out and, together with it, we all know that the winter holidays are approaching. If you want your 2015 New Year’s Eve party to be unforgettable, take into consideration celebrating it under the stars.


There are thousands of reasons that make this kind of countdown party amazing and following, we will describe the best ones. Read on and convince yourself to “greet” 2015 under the beautiful “décor” created by the sky.

  • If you will be celebrating this NYE with someone special, attending and outdoor party will feel romantic and beautiful. The weather outside will not even matter as long as you are with someone whose presence you truly enjoy!
  • This kind of party makes for pictures that will always remind you of some of the most beautiful moments in your life.
  • You don’t have to spend the entire party on the outdoors – just choose a venue that will be able to provide its guests with a terrace or with an outdoor space where they can enjoy the magnificence of the beautiful sky. Also, if you want to enjoy the beautiful view while on the inside of the venue as well, pick a place that has glass walls that will allow you to take a look at the starry sky.
  • Celebrating New Year’s Eve outdoors also means that you’ll get the best “seats” for the firework shows. If you live in an area where these are spectacular, you will enjoy them more than ever.

For a magic New Year’s Eve, hire a carriage as well. Vintage Carriage Company has a large variety of carriages available for rental for the NYE party-goers out there. From carriages who can accommodate one or two people to carriages that can accommodate a small group of friends, we have everything you may need so don’t forget to check us out.

Bring Santa’s Sleigh to Your Holiday Party or Winter Wedding

Winter is not even by far the “cold season” everyone thinks it is (not even for those living in the North). In fact, winter is all about inner warmth, beauty and light – and Christmas proves it to us every single year.


The laughter of a little girl receiving her favorite doll, the excitement of a boy playing with his new police car toy, the joy around the Christmas table – these things cannot be compared to anything. And if you are planning for a big Christmas party this year, you are among the fortunate ones who will be able to give and receive joy from your guests.

  • A Santa Sleigh can be a magnificent and fun addition for a Christmas party, regardless of how young or old your guests are. From the little ones to the childish adults, everyone will enjoy such a nice addition and everyone will love it. And if this is not a strong enough reason, here are some others:
  • If there will be kids at the party, they will get the chance to enjoy a “genuine” Santa. Forget about the Santa who simply walks into the room and welcome the REAL Santa who comes in his sleigh to bring happiness for kids and adults alike.
  • Imagine the fun pictures people will shoot with this! Really, you don’t get to sit in a Santa Sleigh every day and you could really make some people have great fun at your party with such an addition.
  • For a spectacular entry, get a Santa Sleigh. Even if you are not the real one, coming to your party this way will be a memorable joke indeed!

Vintage Carriage Company can provide you with the fairy-tale Santa Sleigh you want. Come visit us and find out more about our beautiful sleighs!

  • Decorate your carriage with some flowers and/or ribbons to “warm up” its look. To create a sense of balance, use the same flower arrangements/ribbons as you will use for your wedding venue too.
  • Our carriages can fit into any wedding color theme you may choose. From deep red to beautiful greens, the upholstery of your chosen carriage can match your winter wedding theme.
