I like the getaway car idea.   I would say your hint gift shouldn’t be the key so that someone can drive the car to your venue and then hand you the keys.  This idea would be cute too because your bridal party will have time to decorate the car with all the just married stuff. 


I don’t think he’ll be focused on the car during bridal party photos, I think he will be focused on the amazing woman who got him his dream gift!


(that’s you, hehe)

I would have it delivered to the church to use as your getaway car. I would have the photographer ask the two of you and the wedding party to linger inside he church and have the guests line up on the stairs, blocking his initial view of the car. The photographer can then get in place to capture his “first look”.

Between marrying the love of his life and the gift of the car, he will have an amazing smile planted on his face for all of the pics.

No, you do what you want. Do not worry about what other people think. Enjoy!

I think it would be pretty cool if you used it as a getaway car, but maybe to get him to focus on the photos you could pretend like like you rented the car for the day (or even tell him before hand you are renting the car).  

Then when you you pull up to the reception you could have the driver as your husband, “Mr—, where you you like me to park your car?”

I would have it be the getaway car, for sure.  You have to post pictures if you do this, I would love to see his reaction! He’s a lucky man 🙂
