A major part of the wedding preparation which doesn’t grab much attention is the post-wedding stage of driving off to the new abode. The car in which the bride and groom are set to leave needs to be decorated just like the venue or the way it reflects the taste of the couple. Gone are the days when you could just put a "Just Married" sign with wreaths of marigold and be done with it. Today, people are here for putting actual thought and effort in the process of decorating the car. To make the hassle a little easier for whoever is chosen to take care of the wedding car, here are 7 ideas for simple car decoration for marriage so that when the bride leaves the house, the moment is not merely emotional but a lot blissful for her and everyone else too. Take the guide:
1. Colour Theme Decoration
This simple car decoration for marriage depends on the colour theme wedding. Some of the trending wedding colour schemes include lavender and mint green, dusty rose and dark navy, pastel pink and bright purple etc. If you are not following the colour theme for your wedding and your wedding has no dedicated colour as such, you can pick the bride’s or groom’s favourite colour and adorn the car with flowers and ribbons of the same colour.
2. Bonnet Attraction
Replacing the overplayed "Just Married" can be the new bonnet decoration. If you are someone going for a simple and elegant look with no over-the-top designs of rows of flowers, this simple car decoration for marriage is right here for you. Go for a simple, medium-sized bow with two complementary coloured satin ribbons and a simple bouquet of carnations or roses in the middle of the bonnet, adding a harmony to the decor.
3. Memory Ride
If a little drama is your style, this simple car decoration for marriage in the list is for you. You can make use of pictures, projected image or figurines on the bonnet of the car, as per your budget. Around this, place things that have significance for the couple, like flowers they usually go for or posters of their favourite romantic song decked with eternal ribbons. Bring all these elements together for a beautiful and majestic appeal.
4. Go Vintage
If you wish to have an old-school and simple car decoration for marriage, next is the vintage touch which is another popular trend these days. If flowers are overdone for you, ditch them and go for balloons instead. Have a lot of balloons in the favourite colours of both the bride and groom. If your budget permits, you can try renting a vintage car and create a whole look with balloons coming out of it.
5. Springtime Affair
If you do not mind the use of flowers in abundance like the old world charm, you can go for this classy and simple car decoration for marriage. Floral decoration has always been all the rage. Pick a flower or flowers (it is better to go for one though) like peachy rose and adorn the whole car with rows and strings of it, attach it to the car turning it into a spring ride. There can be several ways of floral decoration. So, make use of your imagination. This will not only make for quite an experience but also add a final charm to your wedding because flowers are always in.
6. Ethnic Fusion
For the grand yet simple car decoration for marriage, this one definitely stands out. Go for either string of mirror work or beads of glass in any colour. You can pair these with strings of flowers for the extra push, or if that seems too overwhelming an idea, strings of mirrors will also do.
