10 Uses for Wagons and Wheelbarrows
Wooden wagons and wheelbarrows may seem like a thing of the past; however not only are they still useful for gardening, they also make great wedding, party and home accents. Read on for new and trending ideas for using wagons and wheelbarrows on the big day and beyond.
The Big Day
1. Flower Girl Wagon
A wooden goat wagon makes for a memorable flower girl entrance! You have the perfect flower girl in mind, but she’s only been walking a couple months, and you’re not quite sure she’ll make it all the way to the alter. Transform a wooden wagon into a carriage by adding ribbon and flowers that match your wedding colors. The ring-bearer will be able to pull the flower girl while she tosses flowers onto the aisle.
2. Wedding Favor Stand
Add delight to your big day by placing your favors in one of our old fashioned wooden wheelbarrows. Place your wedding favors on a wagon or inside a wheelbarrow to create a beautiful, innovative display that will wow your guests.

4. Camera Station
See your wedding through the eyes of your friends and family by having them take pictures throughout the event with disposable or Polaroid cameras. Make sure all of the cameras are returned by turning one of our Amish wagons, available in many sizes and dimensions, into a camera housing station.

A cart full of flowers in a wooden goat wagon is sure to bring beauty and romance to your special day!
