The Get Away!

Since we're having an early afternoon ceremony and a cocktail reception, we'll be leaving our reception at the lovely yet early hour of 8pm. When we first chose the cocktail reception, I was a little sad to think we wouldn't be dancing into the night, but then I realized it opened the door to all kinds of fun after reception options! Among the many ideas we've considered are dinner with the wedding party or an after party at a favorite bar, both of which require a get away car (and get away outfit...more on that later).

In my wedding dreams, I see us departing the ceremony in a cool old classic car, maybe something baby blue with fins? Our venue has an awesome driveway that loops around right at the entrance, which would make for a spectacular exit and dash into the back seat!

My dilemma? Where on earth do you find a classic car for hire (with a driver please--gotta have a DD) in the Metro area??? Help a sister out, ladies!

Don't worry, you can find a great car and a driver as well. I was lucky enough to photograph a couple out in Reston that had a 57' Chevy take them from the ceremony to the reception. Let me know if that kind of car interests you. Otherwise there are a number of other options out there.

Absolutely! I haven't done extensive searching yet, but google searching mostly brought up rentals for luxury cars rather than classic cars.

We used a '59 Rolls Royce - try Alabaster's Limousines. Good luck!

My husband & I just celebrated our 15th anniversary Moroccan theme style. I've always wanted to have an Arabian nights theme party and finally we had one in Monterey, California at our home on the Monterey dune beach. We did hire Saint Tropez Boutique to do our Moroccan theme party planning so we rented a lavish and huge Moroccan party tent with Moroccan lanterns, Moroccan rugs, Moroccan brass tables, Moroccan tables, Moroccan couches, Moroccan trows, and much more not forgetting the Moroccan tea pots. The Moroccan party was amazing, i felt like I'm flash back in the 1001 Arabian nights. Good job Saint Tropez boutique you did an excellent job and I'm so happy that my Arabian nights theme party went so well .
