Generally, marriage is a symbol of absolute, unconditional love. From a casual courthouse affair to an elaborate celebration with hundreds of friends and family members, your wedding is a momentous day—a special occasion that you’ll never forget. But, as undying as your affection for your spouse-to-be may be, you can’t forget your first love: classic cars.
You’ve spent countless hours working on your personal hotrod or learning all there is to know about your favorite muscle car. It just might be your longest relationship! With that in mind, it’s no surprise that you’d want to incorporate this first love into the celebration of your lifelong adoration for your partner. Here are some ways to get your car involved on your wedding date.
Showcase your classic.
Many classic car enthusiasts have their own car—or even a few. What better way to commemorate your special day than by including your favorite car in the festivities? If you decide to go this route, you’ll want to spend some time comparing car insurance quotes and even gas prices to ensure you’re getting the best value and quality.
After all, you put in the time and effort to compare venues, caterers, florists, and other details of your wedding, so why wouldn’t you do the same for this detail? Most insurance companies should offer comprehensive coverage that includes collision coverage, property damage, and vandalism.
As well as caring for your car on an average day, you’ll want to take extra care on your wedding day. You might even consider appointing a trusted friend to be on “car duty” so that you can have the ultimate peace of mind and enjoy your wedding, knowing your car is in good hands, both in-person and with your auto insurance.
Add some classic appeal to your send-off.
With or without your own car, you can incorporate your love for classic cars into your big day. A variety of services exist that allow you to rent a vintage car for your wedding day. Walk through a shower of sprinkles to your dream car with your new spouse. This timeless addition is the perfect highlight to a classically styled wedding. Think of it: white dress, flower-topped cake, and a classic, vintage car—the ingredients for the perfect wedding day.
Broadcast your good news.
Once you’ve got a car, whether it’s your own or one you’ve rented, your next step is a wedding must-have: decorating. Recruit your wedding party to decorate the classic car with flowers, tin cans, or other eye-catching details so that anyone who so much as glances at your ride will know that it’s your big day. You can even get special decals made that showcase the news—you might even get a few enthusiastic congratulations from the people you pass.
Commemorate the occasion.
Whether or not you’re showcasing your own car in your wedding plans, you can remember it beyond the limits of your memory. You can commemorate a rental or your celebratory décor with a simple snapshot. Let your photographer know you want a special photo with your loved one and your beloved vehicle, or ask a friend or family member to take a few extra photos to commemorate the occasion.
If your guests or other friends are looking for a great gift idea, add some high-quality wedding frames to your registry. With a heartwarming quote, personalized glass engravings, or a simple border, there’s a wedding frame for every taste, ready to commemorate your special day—and how great your favorite classic car looked on the big day.
For richer and poorer, in sickness and health, and in Firebirds and Corvettes, your love is everlasting. Commemorate your two strongest relationships—with your spouse and with your car—by showcasing your passion for classic cars and this all-important milestone. From send-offs to photos, and with all the supplies you’ll need for your special day, your special interest can make for the perfect touch, whatever your wedding’s theme or color scheme. With a statement piece on the day of or a framed photograph, you’ll cherish for years to come, sharing your enthusiasm for classic cars can help make your wedding day even more special.
