Any wedding event has that impressive wedding car to be used for the transportation of the bride and groom. Being part of the romantic event, the wedding car should be decorated with beautiful decorative pieces like fresh flowers, silk flowers, ribbons, bows, and laces. It does not have to be too glamorous and overly decorated to be attractive. A simple design and style can be enough to make the vehicle look fabulous. Moreover, there are things that you have to consider when choosing wedding car decorations. Here’s a list of the dos and don’ts when you need to decorate your wedding car:
Choose wedding car decorations that match the wedding motif.
Depending on the motif of the wedding, you can choose a wedding car décor that matches the event. Whether it is vintage or classic, or the wedding theme and motif is modern and contemporary, there is a wide variety of choices for wedding car decors to compliment and match the wedding. Flowers, for example, are available in a wide variety of colors and hues. If you are not good in color coordination, the wedding florist can help you pick the most appropriate colors and designs of materials for the wedding car decoration.
Choose flowers that can withstand the weather.
Flowers with sturdy structures and qualities are the right choice for the wedding car decorations. If you are planning to use fresh flowers to decorate the vehicle for the big event, make sure that you choose flowers and foliage that are durable. In addition, the flowers and all the materials and accessories that will be used for the car decoration should be durable and able to withstand friction as caused by wind and heat.
If you are using large foliage, green leaves and plants, and fresh flowers, choose the types that are hardy and long lasting. Ruscus Leaves and Cordyline are perfect for the green leaves while the flowers of Hydrangea, Orchids, and Roses are a nice choice for wedding car décor.
Choose materials that are safe on cars.
In choosing decorative items and materials for the decoration of the wedding car, it is important to always select the ones that are safe to use on cars. The soft fabric of ribbons, tulle, bows, and laces can be used on cars as accents to flowers and banners.
Car decals and window stickers are also a popular option for wedding car decoration. They are safe to use on cars and they are easy to remove. Instead of using paint, stickers on cars are better. However, applying them and removing them after should be done correctly to avoid damaging the paint of the car. Don’t hesitate to ask how to correctly do it if you plan to use car stickers as wedding car decorations.
In addition, the materials and accessories to be used to attach the flowers and banners should be safe on cars.
Don’t neglect safety.
Safety is always a priority even on wedding car decors. For safety reasons, not all parts of the car can be attached with car decorations for the wedding. For example, the driver’s view should not be blocked by any obtrusive designs, even light and silhouette fabrics. Huge banners should not be placed on the back window to avoid blocking the driver’s view.
The windshield mirrors and side windows should be clear as well. Before applying any stickers, posters, and banners or before attaching any ribbons, flowers, and bows on any parts of the car, make sure that the design will not obstruct the driver.
Another important matter for safety and protection is the size of the car decorations. Car decors that are too big may tend to fall off from the car along the way. When this happens, it may hurt other people or cause damage to property.
Don’t neglect the owner’s consent.
If car is rented for the wedding, do not neglect the consent of the owner if you plan to add wedding car decorations. It may cost you more expenses if you apply decorative accessories on the wedding car without the owner’s permission.
On the other hand, even if it is your family member or friend who owns the car, it is still best to let them know that you are planning to use car stickers or you are attaching posters, banners, and flowers as part of the wedding car décor.
Don’t use decorations that are hard to remove.
Wedding car decorations are fun and cool but it is important to consider how it will leave the car when removed. Some car stickers may affect the car paint while some may leave traces on windows and surface of the car. If you are planning to use car decals and stickers, choose materials that are easy to remove. Confetti and other colored papers may not be a good material to use on wedding cars because their colors may leave a stain on the car and on the bride and groom’s gown.
Knowing these dos and don’ts will make things easier for you. You will also avoid things that may cause harm not only to the wedding car but also to other people. There are various materials and accessories to find at the flower shops suitable for wedding car decorations. The wedding florists can help you pick the right flowers and accessories that you can use safely on cars. Decorating your car for the wedding is more valuable if it is properly applied.
