The Get Away Vehicle
Is there anything more classic than the "Just Married" sign on the back of a car? It's a tradition that's been going strong for generations and you're sure to want to continue it. Traditionally it's been the job of the wedding party to decorate the get away vehicle but some times rowdy groomsmen (& bridesmaids too!) can go *ahem* a little over board. Unless your all-time favorite beer is Bud Light, you probably don't want those tin cans anywhere near your wedding photos! I've even heard of mortified brides being driven to the reception in a car covered with inflated condoms. I think we can do a little better, don't you? Here are some gorgeous "Just Married" signs and great ideas for decorating the back of your get away vehicle!
While you're most likely not going to be leaving on a boat, I loved the idea of attaching a painted flag, as well as the monogram initial. Or you can keep it formal with beautiful calligraphy.
The colorful paper poms on this classic car would be a great DIY project to do with your bridesmaids. Coordinate with your wedding colors for a tied together look (Ha ha! Puns!)
Of course no one says your get away vehicle has to be a car! A small hand written sign on the back of a bicycle is very sweet as the two of you cruise off into the sunset!
