We are just using our regular car with decorations on it, but I’ve always thought that an old timey car would look great!

I wanted an old car but believe it or not no one in the area is aware of a rental company owning one or someone local who rents their’s out. We’ll be leaving in a family friend’s convertible which we’ll also use to drive from the ceremony to reception as well. (A chance for some alone time)

I really wanted sparklers for our exit but the reception owners flat out said alcohol + fire = bad things. Ohhh well, I still lust for those beautiful fire-y pictures! Mrs. Dolphin’s bubbles looked like a fun alternative!

My BF and I really really really want to go away in a kayak or canoe!!  We’re not even engaged and we know that we want to at least try this.  We’re both very outdoorsy and LOVE kayaking together… perfection.  Sigh… now we just need to find a place next to some kind of water haha!

Other ideas you could do would be::
*renting his dream car as a surprise for him (maybe not decorate that one haha).  This is my next idea if the kayak/canoe doesn’t work out

*bicycle built for two (cute cute cute!!)

*motorcycle — does your guy have his license?  That would be fun!

*rent/borrow a truck and go away in the bed of it with someone driving you.  You can’t really drive too far like this, but it would make SUPER cute pics and you could just drive around the corner to get to your car.

Well we have a trolley to leave the ceremony in.  Our getaway car at the hotel will be the elevator to the penthouse, ha!

I wonder if you could get a loaner from a luxury import dealer.

our getaway is a boat! Our reception venue is across the lake from the hotel we are staying at so we are going to have everyone walk down to the dock with us while we board the boat and then have a sparkler send off! 🙂 I cant wait!!

Try this — http://www.exoticcarrental.com/ 

It seems to have links to places all over the country.  I googled “exotic car rental” and got tons of info.  Add your location and voila!  You should have plenty of possibilities.  Good luck!  It’s a great idea!! 🙂

My gift to my FI is renting a Lamborghini for the day.  He’ll love it because it’s something he’s always wanted to do and will be so surprised I’m doing it!  I highly suggest it!

What area are you in? I’ve seen some really cute exits in pedicabs/rickshaws – it is funny/cute/affordable!

For our exit, we found a taxi company that has 2 old fashioned NYC taxis – we had it arrive about 30 min before the end of the reception…took pictures in/around it, and then made our grand exit! The best part was that we didn’t have to rent it for a certain # of hours like car rental places will have you do…we only paid $25!
