Although flowers are still a big favourite for decorating wedding cars, not all couples go down the traditional route.

Nowadays, the range of vehicles you can choose for your wedding car can go from limousines to vintage cars to cream-coloured sports cars. Getting the right decoration is another matter, however. So, if you don’t feel like flowers for your wedding day wheels, here are some things to inspire you.

One of our favourite weddings was Kate and William’s, who travelled from Buckingham Palace to Clarence House in a blue Aston Martin from Prince Charles’ private collection.

The sports car featured lots of nice details, including a personalised number plate (with JU5T WED), an L-plate and heart-shaped balloons. In fact, we love balloons as a nice replacement for the traditional tin cans.

And cars are not the only means of transport available on your wedding day. A van or even a tractor are great for more rural weddings. Or what about green couples who decide to ride a tandem from the ceremony. Gorgeous!

And remember, whatever the vehicle, you can decorate it with signs and items that reflect your wedding style, whether you’re going for a vintage, minimalist or single-colour look.

Which car are you planning to use for your big day?

Why a VINTAGE WEDDING is just your cup of tea!
Vintage-style weddings have never been so current and cutting-edge. Why is this? The main reason, I believe, is the romance. Vintage seems to hark back to the glamour of a bygone age that we all long to recapture, if only for a day.
