There’s nothing quite like the moment when the bride or groom and their wedding party cruise away after the wedding ceremony or reception in a stellar, classy or just freaking cool car or bus!
Wedding Car Decor or Keep it Simple?
The tradition of leaving your wedding ceremony in a decorated car with “Just Married” on the back and tie shoes (in more recent decades cans) began over 400 years ago. Wedding guests would first throw shoes at the car, which turned into the less aggressive tying of the shoes to the back of the car, to tying cans instead so guests can keep all their shoes on!
If you want to keep it simple with no decor, you can still make a statement with a timeless wedding exit in a sparkling clean car, limo, or bus. Renting or borrowing a car that helps you feeling classy as ever during your exit will still make the day feel special! Having a wedding at one venue and then the reception at another isn’t uncommon. One form of transporation that has really become popular is the large bus or limo that holds the entire wedding party. One advantage of this is that the photographer can ride along and get those fun action shots. This also allows the wedding party to make additional stops along the way to the reception for photo ops with new backgrounds and scenery.
