Decorating the Wedding Getaway Car

Wedding season is upon us! If you’re a guest or attendant to a wedding this season, we have some creative ideas for how to decorate the newlywed’s getaway car. After all, the new couple already has a lot on their plate when it comes to planning the big day- take the opportunity to plan one small piece that is fun and memorable for everyone involved. Here’s our top favorite, D&K Automotive technician approved to decorate a wedding exit car.


Classic Cans

Probably the most iconic choice in wedding car decoration is to attach cans to the back of the car. You can add to this happy tradition by decorating the cans yourself, picking out ribbon in the couples wedding color, or getting empty cans from foods the couple likes (perhaps the groom is a chili guy???) to add that extra personal touch.



As long as the balloons have enough string to fly well behind the car, they won’t block too much visibility. Consider getting balloons that have their names, the wedding date, or any wedding-related captions on them! Or, try to get them in the couple’s chosen wedding colors! This happy-looking option will make the couple, attendants, and guests alike smile.

Streamers or Ribbon

Streamers are a lighter, less expensive option than ribbon but both will do the trick. Tie a bow or a bundle of streamers on the trunk handle, door handles, or go big with a huge bow or bundle on the trunk or hood. The newlyweds will appreciate the festive touch!


Paper Signs

Ah, a simple ‘Just Married’ or the couple’s new shared last name are perfect for signs on the getaway car. As long as the sign’s don’t cover the windows or license plate in any way, you’re golden!



Tulle is cheap and lovely for a getaway car. If you tie it across the hood or trunk for a gift-wrapped look, make sure you secure it underneath the hood and keep it out of the way of the engine so it doesn’t overheat the fabric. Avoid wrapping the tulle in bows over windows or in any way that would reduce visibility.


So there you have it, a handful of fun ideas to decorate a newly married couples’ car on their start to their new life together. You can keep your friends or family members driving safe for the rest of their happily ever after by sending them our way to D&K Automotive for any auto maintenance or service they need. Have them give us a call or schedule an appointment.
