Modes of transportation used by real couples as their "escape" from the reception.
They say that the end of your wedding day comes all too soon – you’re so swept up in every task and event that, when the music finally dies down and you get a chance to check the time, you’re truly stunned to find it's over. Discovering that your celebration has officially ended can be a little sad, which is why many brides and grooms elect to take off into the night in a big way. Most couples are familiar with the concept of a “grand entrance,” but why not add a “grand exit” at the end of the reception or after-party? Providing guests with sparkers or noise markers to hold during this exodus is popular, but perhaps one of our favorite ways to mark the occasion is with an idyllic “getaway” vehicle.
Depending on the motif of your wedding, selecting a mode of transportation to take you and your new spouse away from the venue and back home or to your hotel is a great way to further your concept. If you had a glitzy and glamorous fête, why not consider a classic or vintage car, such as a Rolls Royce, to pick you up? If you’re hosting a more casual affair, why not ride off into the sunset in the bed of a truck? There are plenty of options from which to choose.
