  • Match the decors with the theme of the wedding!

Don’t mismatch the theme and the decorations. Always ask the event planner or anyone from the organizing department on what theme the wedding is. It should be complementing the displays of the ornaments instead of having it in contrast.

  • When there’s no theme, get the color!

If the bride did not have a specific theme, you can ask her or the event planner on the colors the bride wants to have for her flower decors. From there, you can find complementary shades of that color and get creative from there.

  • Keep it classy.

Elegance is beauty and you have to remember that marriage is all about beauty and elegance. When decorating the vehicle, make sure you don’t put too much that it might look weird and make sure there’s enough to add life to it too.

  • Do not go overboard.

Sometimes a bridal car can go over the top and there’s just too many ornaments that it becomes painful to watch and very distracting in the eyes. This should be avoided because keep in mind, on a wedding day, the attention must be on the bride herself and not the car. Make it blend into the background but be sure to still create a stunning look for the vehicle.

  • Browse some inspirations.

You can search in the web for a little inspiration when decorating a bridal vehicle because there are actually a lot of cute designs. Also, when you’re browsing through the web, this can also allow you to see other poorly decorated vehicles. From checking out some design inspirations, you can learn about what to add and how to style it, while at the same time, you can also get a glimpse of the ideas you shouldn’t do.

  • Cars aren’t free.

Please be careful on the car you’re styling because there are some incidents of a little accidents from styling the car. This means when you’re styling, be careful not to put in some scratches on the body of the car.

  • Use soft materials.

Avoid using hard wood with sharp or rough edges for the decorations and if you’re using wire, careful that the sharp ends will not hit or scratch the vehicle’s paint. It would be better to use soft materials on this like straws, foams, tapes and other materials that will not leave a scratch on the car.

The usual colors in wedding cars are actually feminine. Use hues that gives a sense of softness like pink, light yellow, light blue or any other light colors you have to make it blend to the car. Use white premium flowers for elegance. There are no rules to what colors you can add but it would be nice to always stick to the wedding’s theme and have the colors of the decorations match the wedding car decor.

You can also add some ribbons to decorate the car and get creative. However, you should be able to know the limit of adding this decors. It’ll look nice if the flowers in the vehicle stand out more and have the ribbons you added to the decoration as an accent. Also, remember that the ribbons you add should blend in with the colors of the flowers in the car because we definitely wouldn’t want messy decor.
