Create A Memorable Send-Off With These Beautiful Accents

After you have said, "I do" and the reception has ended it's time to ride off into the sunset with your sweetheart. This moment is exciting and memorable. It is the last impression you leave your guests of your wedding day and can really wrap it all together in a grand way. Which is why I am sharing some of my favorite wedding car decoration ideas to spark your imagination. Whether it takes place after your ceremony on the way to your reception, or at the end of the night as you bid your guests goodbye and make your grand exit, the car ride is likely to be one of the first (and few) opportunities for uninterrupted time with your spouse on the big day - so make it count!

Traditionally, it is the responsibility o the wedding party (specifically the groomsmen) to decorate the getaway car, but other options include leaving it up to your wedding planner, a style-conscious friend, or even handling it yourself. Keep in mind that if you're renting a car, you will need to get permission from your wedding transportation vendor before adding any embellishments. Now, get ready for those perfect "Just Married" photo ops!


Drape greenery garland across the trunk of the car and finish the decoration by adding a group of flowers at each end. Be sure to use flowers that match your wedding flowers and colors. The finished result is classic with a twist.


This wedding car decoration idea is so classic it is just too hard to resist. If you are one for tradition you will probably agree! Tin cans are an iconic wedding detail- what other time in life can you roll through the streets with them trailing behind you to catch everyone's attention? Tying the cans onto your bumper might seem like a no-brainer, but they run the risk of looking sloppy if you don't take the time to plan everything out. This should go without saying, but be sure to use EMPTY cans only! Them remove any labels from the cans, and attach them using durable string or rope that won't snap after a few minutes of driving.


A laser-cut sign is a versatile option for practically any type of car or wedding style. Pair the sign with eucalyptus garland, over-sized tassels, and a vintage car for an oh, so chic look.


A floral wreath is a timeless and chic wedding car decoration. Dress it up with ribbons for extra pizzazz, or display the wreath on its own for a more subtle effect (it will look just as lovely!)


For the playful couple, bright flowers and long, trailing ribbons add a whimsical effect to any getaway car. Think about which colors coordinate best with the car's paint or choose colors that match your wedding color scheme.


Trolleys and private shuttles are sometimes used to transport larger bridal parties. Because these vehicles are much larger than your traditional vehicle there is a lot more space to decorate. Use that space to highlight your wedding hashtag. Custom signage is a terrific temporary option that is easily removed after your wedding day.


This romantic combo has us saying, "Oooh, la, la." Pair a "Just Married" calligraphy sign with blush pink bows and greenery bunches to achieve this vintage-inspired look.


Use letter balloons to spell out a fun message on the car's back bumper! Some celebratory options include, "CHEERS" or the iconic "I DO". You could also have the interior of the vehicle filled with balloons so that when you open the doors they fly out of the car making for an exciting exit.


If minimal details are more your speed, there's no need to go overboard!A basic "Just Married" sticker or window cling is a stylish wedding car decoration idea that gets the point across but also keeps things simple.
