Good morning lovelies! Can you believe we’re at the end of January already? Next it will be Valentines Day and soon we’ll be thinking about Spring! Before all that though, this week’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons. After the confetti has been thrown, wedding cake cut and the sparklers have fizzled out, it will be time for you and your husband to make your exit, and just like the rest of your day you want it to be unforgettable! Something stylish and fun, something that reflects your personality, as well as the tone of your big day, and most importantly something that will make for some fabulous photos – and completely wow your wedding guests! Whatever your theme, style, venue or budget here are 5 wedding getaway ideas that are sure to leave a lasting impression…..
1. Classic Car
From the 1920s to the 1960s a classic car adds glamour and wow to the exit of any wedding – and is guaranteed to be loved as much by your Groom as by your guests!

2. Horse Drawn Carriage
Or for something with a little more olde world romance consider a gentle getaway on a horse drawn carriage…..

3. Vintage Motorbike or Scooter (side-car optional!)
For a fun exit full of retro charm there is nothing more cool than a vintage scooter or motorbike (with or without sidecar) But think about your wedding dress before you go ahead and book because anything long or full finitely won’t work – perhaps a good excuse for a chic reception dress?

4. A Bicycle Made for Two!
Or for an exit that is a little more budget friendly, but no less romantic, how about a pedal driven option? Sit atop the handlebars and have ‘Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head’ play as you ride away!
You could even go tandem!
And two wheels can be made to look just as beautiful as four!

5. Sail Away
Or (and this one is my absolute favourite) what could be more dreamy than drifting away into the sunset with your new husband in a boat just for two…..
