The job of decorating the car for the wedding will most probably fall on the best man and the groomsmen, and perhaps you might want to surprise the couple with the decorations. Of course, the groomsmen are not the only ones who can pitch in to help – you can most definitely ask help from the bridesmaids as well. Here are some helpful tips to pay attention to when making decorations to the vehicle:
- Figure out the time – the first thing you need to figure out when decorating the car for the wedding day is to know when the car is needed. You will be able to figure this out easily if you have the agenda of the wedding with you, but in case you do not, you can easily ask the bridesmaids, the parents of the couple or even the couple themselves (perhaps without being too obvious about it if you wish to surprise them!). Start two or three hours prior to when the vehicle is needed so that you will have plenty of time to decorate.
- Understand that some decorations are not allowed – certain decorations nowadays can be forbidden for a variety of reasons. To start with, talk with the Melbourne chauffeur cars or the wedding car hire Melbourne company to understand what is allowed. Most chauffeurs will be glad to inform you that excessive decorations or certain types of decorations will sadly get them in trouble. For example, adhesives that can remove the body paint, decorations which can scratch the paint and body are a no-go. Even sugary substances can have a very bad impact on the vehicle, so refrain from using them; and naturally, spray paint is forbidden for obvious reasons. The traditional tins and cans attached to the back of the vehicle can easily cause sparks – and they are forbidden in many localities.
- Be original – the next point you need to keep in mind when decorating the wedding car is that you need to be original. Not only are some ideas such as tin cans old and boring, but they can be outright illegal nowadays in many localities. Thanks to the influence of the internet today, it is easy to search for new and unorthodox ways to decorate the vehicle; there are many wedding sites that feature articles on this as well. Make sure that whichever decorations you tend to pick, they are in line with the colour scheme of the wedding.
- Have fun! – And finally, the very last point you need to keep in mind is that you need to have fun with decorations! After all, the chance to decorate a car for a wedding is definitely a rare occurrence.
