Taylor Swift, queen of party hosting, has done it again. At a recent gathering, the singer and her ever-expanding famous-faced girl gang — this time around, complete with newbies Serayah McNeill from Empire and Halston Sage from Paper Towns along with besties Lorde and the Haim sisters — got their pose on in front of something that your summer wedding cannot go without. And no, it’s not another epic photo booth.
The prop of choice was a bicycle rickshaw, a bike with a two-seater cab attached to its back (you’ve probably seen scruffy dudes pedalling out-of-towners in them around some of the more touristy areas of your city). In this pic, Swift’s whip was parked — it’s a haul her $40 million legs probably aren’t up for — but all the better to swoon at. Its teal coat and chocolate brown accents gave the three-wheeler a vintage feel, especially with red floral garland woven through each wheel. Set in a green garden, the bike seemed like a dreamy — not to mention way fun — addition to the gang’s outdoor get-together, and we couldn’t help but feel like it would have the same draw at a wedding. In other words, forget the post-ceremony limo drive.
Not only would it be a unique way for to the bride to get to the ceremony — no need to stuff your gown inside a compact car, but just imagine how cute a bike rickshaw ride would be as the grand finale to your City Hall wedding, cans jangling on the pavement on the way to the reception. Or at a destination wedding, when you can get from the beach to the resort with a fully unobstructed sunset. You could even attach a speaker to the back seat and blast your newlywed soundtrack. We say “Our Song” is a contender for first spin on your first official spin.
