Call us romantic, but we can’t think of a lovelier way to arrive at your New Orleans’ wedding and reception than by mule-drawn carriage, and apparently, we’re not alone. Hundreds of couples hire carriages for their nuptials every year. Not only does it make for great photos, it gives you a little alone time on your big day (if you don’t count the driver. Or the mule).

Royal Carriages, named the 2018 Louisiana Attraction of the Year, offers a luxury wedding carriage right out of a fairytale. Imagine ­a beautiful white coach drawn by a single carriage mule with a driver all decked out in a tuxedo. The carriage seats up to four comfortably and you can ride with the top up or down (in case you get a little rain). They even have 8-passenger limousine carriages if you want to take your whole wedding party along for the ride.

Royals Carriages offers packages that give you time to take photos in and around the carriage, as well as options that include a historic tour. Learn more.
