You can create your own route, bring food and drink onto the streetcar and decorate it to your heart’s content. It’s a mode of transportation steeped in history but customizable to your goals. norta.com
 

Limo: They’re typical of weddings for a reason — the luxury and comfort of a limo is tough to beat.

Motorcycle or Scooter: Get a fleet of motorcycles or scooters to carry you, your beloved and your guests to your wedding.

Party bus: Why not rent a party bus? Champagne chillers, accent and fiber optic lighting, flat screen TVs, a mirrored ceiling and a dancing pole — gasp! — (in case you want to show off your moves) are a few of the amenities. The buses range in size, running from 22 to 45 passenger limits, and Royal Coach will meet all of your specifications. neworleansroyalcoach.com

Hot Air Balloon: Nothing is more romantic than a hot air balloon ride, so up the ante and rent one for your wedding. Float away with your honey and grab some majestic views of New Orleans and your own event. Maybe toss in a champagne brunch before or after. neworleanshotairballoons.com
 

Gondola – City Park: If you’re near City Park for your wedding, a gondola ride is a must. Glide through the smooth waters of the park and have a private, relaxing moment with your new partner in life and love. If you want to bring guests, the boat carries up to six. nolagondola.com
 

Yacht: Charter a yacht and party all the way to the altar. Watch the sun set and enjoy balmy breezes as you float through the waters of Lake Pontchartrain.
