Historically, the task of decorating the getaway car has fallen to the groomsmen, and thanks to Prince Harry's delicate touch with his brother's newlywed chariot last spring—think heart-shaped Mylar balloons, chintzy bows, and a "JU5T WED" vanity plate—the age-old tradition is on our minds again. Better hope the boys skip the shaving cream (which can wreck a car's paint job), toilet paper, and shoes tied to the bumper. (Shoes used to represent authority, so the bride's father would give his to the groom to close the deal.) Instead, encourage them to use flowers, which have long symbolized fertility; strung-together tin cans—a Victorian invention to ward off bad luck—and, of course, a sign (or vanity plate!) to shout out the good news. How about "HONK4LOVE"? We won't judge, promise!
