Whether you are providing your own vehicle for your wedding or instead are looking at hiring classic wedding cars for the occasion, having your vehicle decorated beautifully can make a big difference on your big day. These not only make the journey to and from the event extra special, but they also provide a memorable experience for everyone attending your wedding too.
Many people look to make an impression by hiring double decker buses or classic wedding cars for their event, and even though these vehicles are already special in their own right, well thought-out and beautiful decorations can still add an extra touch that will help make your day unforgettable in all the right ways.
The first suggestion for a great wedding decoration is the ‘Just Married’ sign, which can be designed to the couple’s particular tastes and preferences. This sign is almost essential for the bride and groom’s transport, and is one of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to add a special touch to your wedding transportation.
This sign can be placed in the rear window of the vehicle with a suction cup to hold it in place, or can instead be attached to the exterior of the vehicle if it is safe and possible to do so without damaging the exterior of the vehicle. For those instances where this in not possible, the interior option is still a great one in order to implement this popular decoration tradition.
In some cases, classic wedding car and bus hire services will offer ‘Just Married’ signs of their own to the people who invest in their services. These often fit in perfectly with the theme and style of the vehicle, ensuring that you make a great impression as you leave or arrive at the reception in style.
The next suggestion for a great decoration for your wedding car is adding bows and ribbons to the vehicle, including bows on door handles and ribbons fastened to the front of the car or bus. This is a very distinctive look that remains a popular one, not least because it manages to be romantic and classy all at the same time.
Again, many hire companies can and do provide these accessories, although this is not always the case. For those who want a specific colour and style of ribbon and bow decoration, it is first suggested to check with the wedding vehicle hire company to see if this is acceptable and if they have any guidelines or restrictions in this department before you start shopping.
Once you have confirmation of what is allowed and what is not you can then proceed to investing in ribbon decorations for your car. You can either make the decorations yourself to save money, or can invest in pre-made items in a variety of sizes, colours and styles. A popular colour is white – for obvious reasons – but ribbons can be large and flamboyant or small and subtle, as your prefer.
Other popular options for wedding car decorations include custom made flower arrangements that can be positioned anywhere on the vehicle. One popular location for these is behind the rear seating in an open-topped vehicle, or tucked behind the bumper of certain classic wedding cars and buses where possible.
In all cases – and regardless of the decoration that you choose – you should look to ensure that your decorations are securely attached and are unlikely to fly away whilst your vehicle is on the road. If in doubt, ask your wedding transportation company for their suggestions of what will work, ensuring that your car or bus looks beautiful on the day and makes a fantastic impression on guests.
