Today we feature 4 cool wedding reception getaway ideas.
Your wedding ceremony is over and the rice or confetti has been thrown. You and your wedding guests have partied hard at your wedding reception. Now it is time for you and your new spouse to begin your new life together and hop into a ride that fits your wedding style.
In Part I, Part II. and Part III of our 3 part series “The Wedding Getaway Car” we featured several creative and imaginative wedding reception getaway ideas, including riding off in a “just married” rickshaw, riding in a trailer full of bales of hay at a rustic country wedding, exiting on a tandem bicycle after a casual backyard ceremony, hopping into an antique car at your country club wedding reception and stepping onto a NYC tour bus with all your wedding guests at your urban wedding.
And as an added style touch we presented a DIY tutorial for a floral garland for your own wedding reception getaway car.
Here are 4 more cool wedding reception getaway ideas, from Brides:
After your wedding reception ends and you exit through an arch of sparklers and share a romantic kiss, it’s time to scoot away to your first real alone time as a married couple! And these days, newlyweds are pickingawesome getaway transportation, from hot air balloons to golf carts. We always love seeing what real brides and grooms choose, because it usually says something about their personalities. Our Facebook followers submitted some pretty amazing photos of how they bid adieu to their big day, so we picked our four favorites!
Bride Brittany Finkbeiner and her husband, seen above, went the vintage car route, which so many brides and grooms do today — and for good reason! There are rental companies in nearly every big city and town that let newlyweds ride off into the sunset in a classic set of wheels, making the moment feel extra special and steeped in tradition.

We love how the yellow school bus that bride Anna Dittbenner and her husband chose showcases their playful personality. Not only is it a cost-effective choice, it can also be a fun, personal touch if the bride or groom (or both) is a teacher.

Bride Ghada Abdel-Qader did what most brides dream of — she exited her reception like a princess out of a fairy tale! She and her husband stepped into a classic horse and carriage to mark their first moments as a married couple, and probably felt like total royalty.

Not all vintage cars are top-of-the-line masterpieces like Rolls-Royces. In fact, some of the best kinds are the ones that are fun, retro throwbacks! Bride Joanna Ferree probably had a blast in this VW Beetle that’s totally cool and classic.
