Why the Tin Cans on the Wedding Getaway Car?

Tin cans on the back of the car have been part of the long list of wedding traditions since time immemorial. But do people really know their meaning?

Well, it was believed that their rattling noise would scare away evil and troublesome spirits and therefore protect the newly formed union. Nowadays tin cans on the wedding getaway car are more of a fun way of announcing the departure of the newlyweds.

Simple Wedding Getaway Car Decoration Ideas: Calligraphed Signs

However, decorating the wedding car with tin cans is not the only way to embellish it. Nothing is more simple than a “Just married” sign on the back of the send-off car. DIY a beautiful and easy calligraphed sign, write or engrave your message on a small acrylic or wooden blackboard. Plain cardboard will do as well. Tie the sign with string to the back of the wedding car. Prettify it with flowers, ribbons and a huge bow smack in the middle of the arrangement.

Original and Funny Just Married Car Decorations

One of the most original and funny ways to decorate the send-off car is to “dress it up” as the bride. How? You ask. Add eyelashes to the car’s headlights to make them look like eyes and place a “veil” on top. Of course, you can still add a decal or write “Just Married” on the car window of your choosing – if you believe having the getaway car looking like a bride is not enough! 😉
