While limos make for fun wedding photo ops, guess what else could too? A hot air balloon or a propeller jet to start. And according to Pinterest, creative wedding entrances and exits are totally on trend this year. Here are eight imaginative ways to arrive to your wedding and make a grand exit in style.

Pedicab Perfection

Perfect for city weddings, pedicabs often line the streets of downtown areas. If you and your photographer are feeling spontaneous, hailing and riding in one can make for memorable photos—not to mention the chance to show off an impressive urban skyline. The same goes for classic yellow taxis.

Golf Cart Chic

Getting married at a country club with a golf course or within a golf course community? For a playful mode of transportation, try rolling away on a golf cart. You can attach a "just married" sign on the back and streamers to the columns in front.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

If neither of you are afraid of heights, taking an intimate hot air balloon ride is a breathtaking way to leave your daytime reception. Besides being a unique send-off, it's also a great photo op all of your guests will enjoy.

A Bicycle Built for Two

Sporty couples who love biking together can take a spin on a bicycle—a perfectly whimsical way to travel. Decorate the handlebars with flowers or streamers in your wedding colors, and if your day has a throwback vibe, rent a vintage bicycle or tandem.

Classic Horse-Drawn Carriage

For couples who want to have traditional transportation with an elegant twist, a horse-drawn carriage is the perfect choice. Plus, it'll enhance a regal theme (just make sure your venue allows animals on property). If you want to go all out, consider a majestic glass carriage option or an enclosed coach carriage.

Getaway on the Sea

Do you and your partner have fun memories sailing with friends or family? Or is your wedding ceremony or reception taking place on the water? Make a splash (literally) with a boat entrance or exit. Whether it's a speedboat, canoe, rowboat, kayak, pontoon or even a yacht, being on the water together will add a festive nautical vibe to the day.

Propeller Jet Parting

For the couple who loves to make a statement, a propeller jet ride is an insanely cool exit or entrance. (Look in your area for small aircrafts for hire—many also have helicopter options too.) Just think of all the photo opportunities you'll have with the fold-out staircase and airport runway.

Vintage Car Glam

To add a dose of glam, roll out of your venue in a vintage car—it's a special way to end the day. You can decorate it with traditional signs and streamers, or let the car speak for itself if it's exceptionally cool. It doesn't have to be an expensive rental though—if there's a special older car in the family, your wedding is the perfect time to take it for a spin.
