All You Need To Know About Decorations For Your Wedding Car

The church is booked, the cake design agreed with the bakers, the invitations have gone out, the reception venue has been hired, the wedding cars have been arranged, and the bride’s dress is being made as we speak. As much as that might seem quite a list of tasks, believe it or not, there are still dozens of other matters to be taken care of by anyone planning a wedding.

One of those which is often overlooked, but which can make a huge difference to the visual spectacle of a wedding, is the wedding car decorations. Many couples do not bother, but it is always eye-catching when the wedding cars, especially the one the bride is riding in, have some decorations to mark the occasion.

Given that weddings are not an everyday occurrence for most people, having to choose the decorations for a wedding is an even rarer event. As such, and if you are planning your wedding and unsure how your wedding car should be decorated, here are some ideas.

But First…

We must cover these caveats before we get into the wedding car decoration ideas. The first is that you check with the wedding car hire company that they allow decorations to be attached to their wedding cars, and if so, what sorts of decorations you can use. In addition, any decorations which you use must be secured so that they cannot break loose and cause risks to other traffic. Finally, they must not obscure the wedding car driver’s view when they are driving.

We do not wish to seem like killjoys by going through all that, however, it will ensure there are no disappointments or disputes on the day. The last thing you want is to look forward to decorating your wedding car when it arrives, only to be told you cannot.

Streamers: One of the easiest and cheapest decorations with a variety of traditional colours such as white, yellow, and light blue, plus metallic streamers can look spectacular.

Ribbons And Bows: One of the more traditional ways to decorate a car, it is important that the bows’ and ribbons’ colours are complementary. The simplest use is to have a bow on the bonnet with the ribbons down the sides of the wedding car.

Balloons: Another favourite decoration, however, they do require some thought. Do not have them near the front bonnet as the heat can burst them. Also, do not fill them with helium as this can cause them to break loose and float away.

Flowers: Having your florist create one or more flower arrangements for use on your wedding car will add a touch of beauty and sophistication. Flowers can be used both on the outside of the wedding car and on the inside, such as on the back window shelf.

Window Chalk: If your wedding car hire company will allow it, writing messages on the windows of the wedding car, such as “Just Married” can be fun.

Cuddly Toys: A fun and whimsical idea would be to have cuddly toys on or in the wedding car. Two teddies dressed as the bride and groom are the norm.

Tin Cans: There can be few more traditional wedding car decorations than tin cans tied to the back of the car. This is especially so when the married couple departs for their honeymoon.
