What exactly is a getaway car, you ask? No, it's not the car waiting for a "Runaway Bride" (but you're still invited to the wedding, Julia Roberts...). We've all either seen or taken part in the tradition of decorating (read: sometimes destroying with cookies and whipped cream) the bride and groom's car at the end of the night so they can ride off into the sunset, dragging cans and all. But as much as we love shoe polish on car windows, one of our favorite trends in weddings is the picture-perfect "getaway" car. A vintage Cadillac convertible, a classic Ford truck or even a cute little scooter...pick something you love, something that represents your unique personality as a couple. Most major cities offer classic car rentals, and we bet you have a relative or two with the perfect set of wheels just waiting for a photo-op. Check out our slideshow of our favorite images from real weddings and see how other couples are getting whisked away into their new married life!
