So here is my dillema my Fiance loves his car. It is a hoopty, but he loves it. He is CONVINCED I am just making this wedding all about me and what I like… so I want to suprise him by incorporating his car someplace into our wedding. I have a pretty cool image of it that is flat black outlines (ona t-shirt so hopefully I can scan cloth lol) I just have no idea where to incorporate it without it looking… bizzare.I am fairly crafty and have been doing lots of things DIY so I am kinda hoping his can turn into my next craft project.
For my creative DIY ladies are you doing something special for your man? Any ideas how I can incorporate his car into our wedding without is being totally tacky? I would love this to be a DIY project, to make it all the more personal… thanks Bees you rock!

I think it would be fun to work a couple of your wedding pictures with the car, or maybe your Save-The-Date Cards.
It’s funny your asking about something for the Fiance. He joked about getting a ring engraved with “one ring to rule them all”. He’s not a LOTR fan, but is a natural-born smarta$$. I was looking at rings for him today, and found this in a tungsten ring. I really thinking about getting this . I think it would be hilarious during the ceremony. Our own personal joke. Even if he didn’t wear it beyond that day, we could easily afford a more traditional sytle ring for later.

Are you going to have table numbers? What if you did the car outline with the number inside of it?

Are you having a grooms cake? They make cute car grooms cake, and if you don’t want to spent that much you could always just put a picture of it on a sheet cake.

Love those ideas! How about some cute cufflinks a la the lego ones from a Bee here? They looked so fun in her wedding shots and must have made her groom feel appreciated for his own interests too.

He’d love a grooms cake! I’m getting a Fire Truck replica cake made for my Fiance. Also, you could make little hotwheel bouts for the guys 🙂

Are you having a photo booth? You could do a life size( or nearly so) cutout of his car to take pics.
Give matchbox cars the same model as his as favors
A signature drink? Pink Cadillac comes to mind- what model is his car? You could display your pic on the bar.
Google the model of his car and weddings and see what you get

Thanks so much for all the help so far! (I do hope I get some more awesome ideas!)
a few pieces of info that might help…
1. unfortunately our buget is pretty full at this point so i can’t really be an added expense (i.e. I can’t afford a grooms cake… as it is I thinkmy Future Mother-In-Law is making our wedding cake)
2. His car is a 1989 Dodge Colt 2-door hatchback. Not a very widely known model.
3. He likes having a say about everything, so it kind of has to be soemthing I can keep secret without him freaking out over the fact that this is another thing I am “choosing without him”.
as I said you ladies are awesome keep those creative juices flowing!

use the window paint and write on the windshield, take a pic and frame it somewhere…maybe on the gift table or near the placecards. just a random thought…run with that! 🙂

have a budoir pic of you taken on the car:) his 2 favorite things…
but you said incorporate it into the wedding. Are you having table #s? You could have photos of his car as a background, and then stamp the table number on a piece of paper, and mat it on another.
or you could have his car there and make sure you get some wedding photos by his car, with the bridal party and everyone.
take pictures of his car, and cut them out and put them on toothpicks and put them on the cake? or if yyou are having a candy buffet, you can do the same thing, put them on a skewer and stick them in the candy?
hrmmm…. what else?
I am so subscribing to this one:) i’m interested to see what ideas they can come up with because I would LOVE to incorporate wakeboarding, golf, and quadding into our vow renewal somehow:) hrmmm… (my husbans favorite things)

My hunny got Zelda cufflinks – you could have car cufflinks made on Etsy, or even get a garter with a car charm on it to surprise him.
