The flying car
Affixing colourful balloons to the back of your car is a pretty and easy idea to recreate for a light-hearted ride. Just ensure they don't cover the entire back window of your car to be safe!

Wild and rustic
Some bloggers may think it's just a tuft of grass on your car, but what Eliza and Melvin did was cute and whimsical. They went with tradition and tied their own paper-wrapped tin cans to the back of their camper van. They also included a Just Married car plate sign, and had a clutch of wild flowers in front of the van.

Big and silent
Forget noisy tin cans and opt for pretty, fluffy paper pom poms for a less noisy getaway!

Get personal
Wan Jun and Wai Kit opted for a humorous car decal on their bridal limousine with the quote "Marriage lets you annoy one special person for the rest of your life", with their initials and wedding date.

Simply Vintage
Sometimes with a statement car, you don't need extra frills; let the car do all the talking! For her wedding, Jade Seah made her arrival to church in a Mini Cooper decked with a pastel floral bouquet.

Fun times!
Xing Ling and Chun Yew injected fun details into their celebrations: they had their vintage Beetle adorned with plush toys of their favourite characters on top.

On two wheels
You don't even need a car to make your exit! If you'd rather zoom off on two wheels, you can do so with this very prettily-dressed motorbike, with your new status pinned to the back of the vehicle.

Front to Back
At times, a bright bouquet of flowers at the back of your car is all you need to make your entrance and exit before and after the wedding.

Flowering Trunk
Why stick with a bouquet when you can have a whole trunk full of flowers! Fill the back of your car with your favourite blooms, or wedding decor flowers for a really pretty statement. Of course, you'll have to hire (or already have) a convertible for your wedding.

Paper, flowers
Keep things simple with a few bunches of flowers and paper cut-outs, then stick them all over your bonnet to create an interesting pattern.

Bridal van
Okay, so this isn't strictly a bridal car for getaways, but we love the idea of decorating it for photos. If you're driving a similar car that'll make for wonderful photos, and are having a wedding in an open space where your vehicle can be driven onto the lawn, have fun with it by dressing it up, and inviting guests to take a few photos with it, too.
