Hi, my name is Melissa Barrad with I Do Weddings in San Diego, and I'm here today to teach you how to decorate a wedding car with flowers. So, you can see, we did a little bit of decoration here, off the back bumper, we can see, it's very, very simple. And the first thing that you do want to ask is, ask permission before you do this. If it is going to be a surprise, you need to make sure that everything that you do can be easily removed and will not damage the car. I'd also ask if the car will actually be driven later in the evening, or if it's simply going to be for photos. The third thing I recommend, is being careful with what you write on the car. You can put a 'Just Married' sign and you can write on the car. You want to make it's visible, so if they are going to drive it or not, peeking through the words, Just Married. But use a pen that is specific for glass, do not use a Sharpie or a similar item,because that will damage the car. And finally, if you are taking some time to decorate the car, make sure that you prep it in advance or its ready to go. And you can sneak out right before the bride and groom leave. And if the car is brought up, so they can walk right into their car and sneak out. And make sure that you tell the wedding photographer about your plans. So, even if they are planning on leaving a little early, they an come out and get a few pictures. So, to create this very, very simple look, I used pre-made garlands, and it was all ready to go. And instead of using tape or glue or any similar items, I simply placed it inside the trunk, and closed it. So, that way, you don't have to worry about anything adhering. Then, I attached flowers in the bride and groom's wedding colors, just to add a little pop of color. And you can also see, for the garland, I did not go very, very long. Sometimes people use cans or similar items, which are all wonderful. But you do want to make sure that nothing goes inside the tail pipe and make a very interesting end to a wedding evening. I'm Melissa Barrad with I Do Weddings in San Diego, and I just taught you how to decorate your wedding car with flowers.
