I was reading a post awhile back on someone putitng out a basket of ribbons at the church for people to tie to their cars, so between the ride from the church to the venue, people can ID others and help avoid people getting lost along the way. Does anyone do this? Do cars still have antennas? hah, i haven’t really taken notice.

Hmmmm…I’ve never heard of that.
I feel like:
(a) the majority of people have GPS now on their phones or in their cars
(b) people all leave the ceremony at different times since some stay and chat with family
(c) I imagine families/friends would probably follow each other as opposed to entire caravan of people ;o)

it seems more effective to include a map and directions in your directions. if they get lost, it’d be easier to just call someone, instead of trying to spot ribbons in traffic.

I think it’s a really cute idea! NONE of my DH’s family has GPS, NONE of them used their maps, and they ALL followed each other (and tried to follow my family, ribbons would have helped!!). Newer cars don’t have the antennas, but older cars do and if you make them big and bright, it should be easier for people to follow each other. Wish I would have done this for my wedding!

Where I come from this is tradition! The ribbons are often carried by the bride down the aisle wrapped around the bouquet stems.
Usually, the bride and groom (assisted by someone handing them the ribbons) give out the ribbons during a receiving line after the ceremony. Then, the ribbons are tied to car antenna or around a door frame with the window open so that the cars can easily be identified. Usually other cars will stop to let the caravan pass and honk for good luck!
