Romance Anniversary Ideas

Regardless of whether this is your one-year anniversary or your 25th, you will want this day to be special. Surprising the love of your life with a romantic idea will be absolutely amazing for him/her – so do not hesitate to do it!


If you are running short on romantic anniversary ideas, here are some that may help you out:

  • Cook a delicious candlelit dinner. True, this is an all-time classic but the reason it’s still so popular is because it’s actually romantic. Even if you are not an experienced “chef”, you will still be able to cook something tasty and to create a romantic atmosphere. All you need is genuine willingness to surprise your love and a bit of know-how gathered from books and the Internet.
  • A house full of flowers. Who doesn’t love flowers? Order your wife’s favorite flowers and decorate the entire living room with them. She will most definitely love the idea!
  • Do something silly and childish. Take your spouse out for an ice cream and cotton candy at the amusement park that is closer to you. Have some childish fun and shoot some pictures too.
  • Create a slideshow with your favorite pictures. You can choose pictures from the wedding as well as other pictures too. Bring them together in a nice slideshow and make sure to include your “first dance” song as the soundtrack for your little anniversary movie. He/she will surely be touched!
  • Spoil your special someone. Offer your spouse an entire day of “special treatments”. Bring him/her breakfast in bed, rent a carriage to take you away for dinner at a fancy restaurant, exchange gifts and make this day feel completely different than all the other days of your life as a couple.

If you are searching for a carriage to make your loved one feel special on your anniversary, don’t hesitate to contact Vintage Carriage Company. We have a wide range of carriages for all styles – and we would be more than happy to be part of your romantic surprise too!

Put A Twist On Your Disney Wedding

Few other things are more commonly associated with romance and with “they lived happily ever after” than the famous Disney movies. From Cinderella to Snow White, almost all Disney movies have something purely romantic in them.


  • This is probably why Disney gets so much associated with weddings as well. If you want a Disney-like wedding and if you want to be the “princess” for a night at least, read on and inspire yourself from the following tips. You’ll definitely love them!

How to Include your Guests in a Special Dance

Weddings are among the happiest moments in people’s lives. Therefore, it is more than natural that they want everybody they care about to be there for them when they are “tying the knot”. Even more than that, it is perfectly natural that people want their wedding guests to feel great being there as well.


If you want to include your guests in a special dance, you should definitely do it because this will make them feel special and it will be a great way for you to thank them for having come (a long way) to be there for you. How do you do this though? Here are some tips to consider:

  • If you want something very special, you could create a first dance coreography that includes the groomsmen and the bridesmaids at the end of it as well. Ask your DJ or your band to invite all the other people to dance as well and you will thus be able to include all of your friends and relatives into your most special dance.
  • Think of group dances that are very fun, such as YMCA, Thriller and limbo songs as well. These songs usually get people off their seats and on the dance floor and they really make for great times (and for very fun pictures too!).
  • You could create a special moment for all of your guests as well. For instance, inviting all the couples to dance on a romantic song will most likely get most of the guests off their seats. As for those who did not come with a pair, encourage them to find one for this dance!

Yes, your wedding day will be amazing and your special dances will definitely be part of the magic. But if you want this day to be unforgettable, do take into consideration the option of a horse drawn carriage. Timeless and romantic, such means of transportation will allow you to feel like a true prince and princess living your own fairy tale. Vintage Carriage Company has a beautiful collection of carriages in store for you – so make sure to come and check them out!

How to Personalize Your Horse Drawn Carriage

On your wedding day, you will want to feel like real royalty. After all, this is an extremely important day in one’s life and many of you would go a long way (both literally and figuratively) when it comes to making sure this day is really perfect from all points of view.

White Vis-a-Vis green interior


Having a horse drawn carriage to carry you to the ceremony (or from it, for that matter) is an amazing way to make yourself feel really special. Yet, like every bride-to-be and groom-to-be out there, you will want to personalize everything at your wedding – including your carriage. How do you actually do that? Here are some ideas to keep in mind:

Flower arrangements. If you want your carriage to look feminine, beautiful and festive, don’t forget to decorate it with flower arrangements. Bring your own personality into the mix and use flowers that really speak about who you are and about the heart-warming love story between the two of you.

  • The inside of the carriage. Many carriage companies have similar carriages with different colored upholstery which may  allow you to choose a particular color for your carriage. Green, red and black make for the most commonly encountered choices and choosing one of them can really add some personality to your carriage as well.
  • The horses. Your carriage’s horses deserve to be nicely “dressed” for your big day too! The addition of flowers or ribbons to mane or tail can allow them reflect your style.  This is another way in which you can personalize the appearance of your horse drawn carriage and to add some “festive feeling” to it as well.
  • The type of carriage you choose can speak about yourself as well. For instance, a Cinderella carriage will speak about your romanticism, while a large carriage that accommodates more people can speak about what you believe to be important in life.

Here at Vintage Carriage Company, we offer you multiple ways in which you can “splash” your wedding horse drawn carriage with some personality. Come visit us, take a look around and you will definitely be convinced that our carriages are worthy of your big day!
