decorate your wedding car[Page 1 of 1]

To have some real fun on wedding day, you can make your 1998 Ford Taurus look like...a 1998 Ford Taurus with frilly decorations. Here's some tips on how to decorate your wedding car.

Decorate your wedding car

Traditionally, someone other than the bride and groom decorated the wedding car, and it usually that person was the best man. As can be predicted, the results weren't always pretty. Nowadays, brides and grooms want to control what the wedding car actually looks like (and what is written on it!)

Accordingly, if you're the groom, you may want to exert some influence on what your wedding transportation will look like aside from the trim and rims. If you're renting a classic car or a Mercedes-Benz, you may not want "Just Married" scrawled all over the hood. Furthermore, if you're renting a limo or any kind of car, the rental company may already have classy decorations that they will provide. Some limousine rental companies are flexible on your décor, and some are not. Check with them in advance.

Here are some standard wedding car decorating supplies, with most of the supplies being available at your local craft store:

  • Buy liquid chalk or window markers to write

    o "Just married"

    o "Honk! We're just married"

    o "What have we done?" (Just kidding. Don't write that.) Whatever you write, try to avoid obstructing your view.

  • Liquid chalk or window markers can be purchased at any craft supply store or online. Crayola makes window markers that will work for car windows as well. (We know, we know - this all sounds pretty childish. But roll with it.)
  • If you have messy handwriting, or your bride isn't going to be pleased, you can buy "Heart" or "Just Married!" magnets that will cling to your car. These can also be personalized to have your name written on them.

  • Buy ribbon, about 2 inches wide, and tie real flowers or silk flowers to your wedding car. ("Ribbon? What self-respecting guy knows how to buy ribbon?")

  • Buy ribbon and balloons to decorate your wedding car

  • Decorate the antenna with a bulb, flower or better yet - a mini-football helmet.
  • Tie beer cans to some strong string or rope and hang them from the rear bumper. This, of course, is a classic. It's probably the one thing you'll remember from your wedding car.

In addition, you'll need some clear tape to hold everything down. So long as you're not traveling a couple of hundred miles, everything should stay put.

Pepper, so jealous of the close-up of them pryniag by the Virgin Mary! how in the world i'm guessing much more liberal diocese than mine here in Northern VA! no priest would allow that unless you were using super long lens? Love the intimacy of that shot and the warmth of all of them and love the dualing ring shots between you and Mitch!

We hire our Aston Martin V12 GT for Grooms, and up to now I have not encountered anyone who actually wants the car decorating. I have never actually asked the clients about this as why would they want me asking marketing questions on their wedding day??? So I thought here would be a great place to ask for comments. Is a supercar something that would require any type of decoration or like my clients so far.. is it something that needs to be left undecorated. I guess part of being seen in a supercar is getting the looks, and if it were to be decorated people would instantly know it's just a wedding car, whereas undecorated people would think a little differently of the occupants. Anyhow, I'll leave this open for discussion and hope to check back to read any thoughts on this matter. If anyone would like to view some images of our Aston Martin then please check our website at: http://www.db7gt.co.uk Also there are very few options if any to actually mount decoration externally.
