As your wedding day comes to an end, make the night even more memorable by ensuring your reception departure is one to remember. How? With an epic wedding getaway car. After all, your guests will be there to cheer and wave as you and your spouse embark on the next chapter of your lives together, so you'll want to make sure your reception exit stands out. One of our favorite ideas? Riding off into the sunset in a really cool car—we love vintage vehicles, especially when they are adorned with beautiful decorations.
Are you decorating your wedding with lots of greenery garlands (so trendy right now!)? Then continue the theme by also affixing a lush garland to the back of your getaway car. Or, perhaps you'd like to stick with tradition? Enlist friends (typically, the groomsmen are in charge of decorating the getaway car) to help attach a trail of noise-making tin cans to the rear bumper—they make for such a festive departure!

This couple decorated their creamy-white vintage getaway car with a hand-lettered "Just Married" sign. The pretty fresh-flower embellishments are a colorful and romantic touch.
Lush garlands of in-season greenery are a great way to decorate the ceremony aisle and reception tables but why not also your getaway car? Drape a long garland to the back of your vehicle to complement the overall wedding look.
Greenery and Floral Wreath
Garlands are gorgeous, but we also love the idea of adorning your wheels with an elegant wreath. Attach it to the trunk of the car and add a calligraphed "Just Married" banner.
"Just Married" Window Decals
Instead of scrawling "Just Married" on the rear window with lipstick, opt for something simpler (and a whole lot less messy!): window decals. This couple's version, which they applied to the back of their vintage Volkswagen Beetle, is from Kate Spade and is super easy to apply and then later remove.
