The Marriage Carriage (Getaway Car)
As some of you may remember in my previous post, I have a personal reason for preferring the “dramatic getaway” from your wedding. Unless you have a full service wedding planner I’ve seen a lot of brides try to dump the job of organizing this task on the groom. Before you do this make sure the dramatic effects are as important to him as they are to you. As wonderful as he is some the grooms just “don’t get it” when it comes to the theatrics of this event.
It is very important for you to plan ahead for your wedding transportation. Ideally you would like to have your transportation decided upon and booked six months ahead of time with 4 months being the absolute latest.
The first thing you need to do of course is to decide the type of transporation you want to get away in. There are endless options now when wedding transportation used to be pretty much limited to limousines. There are now specialist car rental companies that specialize in matching a car to the style of your wedding.
If you are staying the night in the hotel where your reception is located you can still do this just to take a relaxing ride away from all the festivities and prepare for your wedding night!
A few ideas for the getaway..
Hop in a limo and enjoy the first private moment with your loved one since the ceremony without worrying about driving.
If you had a beach or Hollywood glam theme, hop in a convertible!
If you had an upscale black tie affair hop in a luxury car like a Rolls Royce or Mercedes (which can be chauffered or not)
Think about your wedding style and explore all your options. No matter what your choice the getaway will be memorable while enabling you to get away gracefully and quickly.
