For couples who are into motorbikes, sports cars or vintage vehicles, a motor-themed wedding can be an absolute dream. Guests will be intrigued and excited to be asked to wear leather jackets to the ceremony, fascinated by the car-shaped cake and wowed by the array of stunning vehicles lined up at the reception.
If such an event is on your radar, these top tips will give you some ideas for how you can supercharge your special day.
A motor enthusiast’s dream
Motor enthusiasts are always looking for ways to meet like-minded people, gather at vehicle meets or conventions and to get away on motoring holidays. This is why the marriage of two petrol-heads is likely to lead to a wedding to remember and, if the budget allows it, a honeymoon to match.
Make some noise
At the reception, having a lineup of vintage vehicles or brand-new motorbikes such as those available at bmgscooters.com would be the backdrop that legends are made of. Get the engines revving for when the bride and groom appear – likely on the back of a motorbike – to stoke up the party atmosphere.
If it is an outdoor reception, the speaker systems of cars could provide the surround sound for dancing into the night, while a very special vehicle should be used for whisking the happy couple away at the end of the evening.
Food and drink
The catering for such a wedding could also be vehicle themed. A wedding cake shaped like a car or bike is essential, though, motor-lovers as they are, the bride and groom might be reluctant to cut into it. As people eat, drink and get merry, rides in the vintage cars or on the rumbling motorbikes could be offered out to guests. To go all in, hire out dodgems that will spark family competitions and friendly rivalries for years to come.
Marriage photos alongside some majestic motorbikes are some of the most eye-catching and memorable in the wedding business. Brides and grooms look daring and stylish with leather jackets thrown over their respective dresses and suits, while guests will jump at the chance to wear something a little more “dressed down” to the special day.
Of course, anybody who would rather attend in traditional dress should still be welcome, so long as they promise to have a photo taken wearing a biker’s helmet!
Ways to save money on weddings
These motor-themed ideas might sound expensive and extravagant, so it is always wise to know how and where you can save money on weddings. Some top tips for saving on the wedding day so that you can afford an amazing honeymoon are:
- Prepare what you can yourself, especially if you are into DIY or crafting
- Negotiate with events staff or venue managers, but do it carefully so that you do not upset them and risk losing your dream location
- Don’t invite too many guests
- Hire an up-and-coming or amateur photographer – perhaps a friend or family member – so that you do not have to pay high photography costs
- Insure yourself against accidents or other unforeseen events
