3. Details that Elevate Your Elopement

4. A Unique Arrival

If you want to add some extra flair to your ceremony, have the bride arrive in-style in a horse-drawn carriage! Instead of the traditional Wedding March, the clip-clop of the hooves will alert you to the bride’s arrival. It’ll certainly add an unforgettable moment to an already memorable day, and will let the bride feel like the princess she is. Not only is it so classically romantic, it sets the tone for your fairy-tale wedding.
