10 Gorgeous Ways to Decorate Your Wedding Getaway Car

Recently on the blog we took a look at the top transport suppliers in Ireland, so today we’re tackling ways to make your wedding car look extra pretty for your first journey as newlyweds! While decor for your wedding getaway car probably isn’t too high on your priority list – if you are looking to create a celebratory exit, it’s a really cute way to get the fun started. It’s also a lovely way for family and friends to get involved or the perfect way for bridesmaids, best men or family members out there to surprise the happy couple on the Big Day and send them off on a high!

There’s lots of lovely ways to spruce up the wedding car from pretty floral garlands across the bumper, bonnet or boot to trailing cans (or ribbons, streamers or pom poms if you’re looking for a noise-friendly alternative). Other gorgeous ideas include balloons, bunting and bows or if you’re looking to really make the exit a personal one, some personalised number plates are a brilliant option!

Of course when it comes to prettying up the wedding car, it goes without saying that all these ideas should be done with care (be mindful of the materials you use!) and if you’ve hired the vehicle – be sure to check with the car company before you go dressing it up. Check out some gorgeous ways to spruce up your wedding getaway car below…
