wedding getaway car

black and gold wedding inspiration board

If there is one classic image of a wedding it’s that of the getaway car; tin cans and streamers hanging from the bumper, a ‘just married’ sign in the rear window, and the couple being driven away as they embark on their new lives together. Grooms and groomsmen have traditionally taken care of the getaway car but times have changed. Not only that, but it’s a little archaic to call it a getaway car anymore since you need one for your entire event!

Limousines scream 1980s and unless you’re having an 80s themed wedding you’re going to want to look for something else. For a posh upscale wedding style like that shown in this inspiration board you may want to consider a Rolls Royce Phantom hire. Why? Because you’re not going to want to be driven to your ceremony, from your ceremony to your reception, and away into ‘happily ever after’ in your brother’s dinged up dirty old car. Let’s face it – there is a certain confidence and energy that comes from a luxury car whether you’re driving it or being chauffeured in one and confidence on your wedding day is a must have. It’s your big day – live a little!

  1. So chic and classic. I especially love the blackberries in the champagne. Oh, and that amazing venue. Le sigh. Totally gorgeous.

    • Isn’t it?! I don’t usually think of the UK as a destination wedding spot for us Americans, but I totally do now.

  2. Very classy! I also love the blackberries & champagne combo!
