Wedding Transportation Alternative: Would You Do This?


As HippyShopper and EcoStreet (two of my fave blogs) report, this gorgeous British couple (Robert Gray and Stefanie Schmiedel) and their whole wedding party, took the Tube to their wedding! They wanted to save on carbon emissions, and they def. succeeded. I must admit that London’s Underground is superclean and pretty darn fast, but to your wedding?

I like it. My aunt and uncle (plus all the guests) walked from their house to Wave Hill in the Bronx when they got married. Why not make your wedding a reflection of who you truly are? If you are cheesy, over-the-top traditional types, take a gas-guzzling limo (something tells me I’m going to get in trouble with some friends here), but real style is about being true to oneself and bucking the trends. Kudos to Robert and Stefanie!

  1. That is awesome! Imagine the impact this could have, if enough people stop big pimpin in the stretch hummer limo. There are sooo many ways you can green a wedding.

  2. That’s awesome. I totally wish my city had a tube!

  3. For our wedding, my dad let us borrow his Prius (which he does not do for just any occasion, trust me!). Maybe not quite as eco-friendly as mass transit, but better than a stretch Excursion!
