25 Amazing Ideas for Your Wedding Getaway Car

Wedding Style & Decor

If there's one thing most brides will tell you about their wedding reception, it's that they never wanted the party to end. But there is one major exception to this rule — couples that line up an unforgettable getaway car for their reception exit are understandably excited to head out for their honeymoon before their guests depart the venue.

Not only is your wedding exit, and, subsequently, your getaway car, your last opportunity to impress your guests, it's also a great way to showcase your sense of style. Is your groom a huge motorcycle rider? Dress up his wheels (and, may we suggest, an adorable sidecar) for a super cool departure your guests won't soon forget. Did you two bond over a love of classic cars? Drive away in a vintage Rolls Royce decked out with pretty flowers and a sweet "Just Married" sign.

While leaving your reception in a decorated automobile is certainly a nod to tradition (your parents and grandparents probably left their own party this way!), it can also be reinterpreted in fresh and modern ways. Couples are decorating their getaway cars with everything from gorgeous hand-calligraphed signs and lush floral garlands to rustic cowboy boots and colorful tin cans.

So whether you're planning to rent a vintage car or dress up your everyday ride, when you have a wedding getaway car waiting just outside your reception doors, we promise you'll actually want your party to start winding down.
