We’re sure you’ve already got your grand entrance planned, but what about your big exit? With so many other parts of the wedding to plan, the exit can be easy to gloss over. But, trust us when we say, it’s worth the work (and extra investment) to make sure your exit is as epic as possible. Why? Well, your exit will probably be one of the most photographed moments from your wedding day, not to mention that everyone usually lines up for the farewell. So, not only will you get awesome pics of the two of you together heading off into your happily ever after, but you’ll capture the once-in-a-lifetime moment when all of the people you love are together in one place. It’s truly priceless. And while you could easily book a limo or some other black car service, as with everything else in your wedding, it’s a lot more fun (for everyone) when you think a little outside the box. Here are a few extreme exits that we’ve seen and loved…who knows, maybe you’ll find just the inspiration you’ve been searching for…

Hot tip: leave it parked near where your guests will be enjoying cocktail hour so they can use it as a photo op, you can thank us later!

And epic doesn’t even begin to describe how cool those photos will be. Make sure you hire a photographer/videographer with a drone to get the most out of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
If you’re planning on a woodland or dessert ceremony, then saddle up because a horseback exit is just what you need. Make sure you’re dressed for the occasion with cowboy boots and matching stetsons to complete the look as you ride off into the sunset together.
