DIY Wedding Car Decoration

Updated February 21, 2017

Surprise the bride and groom with a decorated car after they tie the knot. Traditionally, it's up to the groomsmen or best man to do the decorating, but the entire bridal party can get in on the fun. The newlywed couple will cause a stir as they drive down the street with decorations flying. Getting married is a cause for celebration; and decorating the vehicle is a fun tradition that is still alive today. Just remember not to use anything on the car that could damage it such as whipped cream, paint or heavy tape.

Purchase some inexpensive items such as balloons, streamers, shoe polish, cellophane tape, string and artificial flowers.

Write sayings on the car windows with shoe polish or liquid chalk. Some common sayings are: Just Married, Honk for the Newlyweds or Finally Tied The Knot.

Tape streamers to the antennas, around the mirrors and hanging off of the bumper.

Tape artificial flowers on the hood of the car.

Attach soda cans or bottles to the boot of the car with string and tape.

Make a sign out of markers and construction paper and tape it to the boot. It can be a personal message to the bride and groom from the wedding party, or just a simple Mr. and Mrs.

Blow up balloons and place them in the car seats or tape them to the roof of the car.
