Tin Can Romance: 13 Getaway Cars to Inspire Your Grand Exit

During the wedding reception, it's tradition for the groomsmen to sneak out and decorate the bride and groom's car, or "getaway vehicle" with tin cans and shaving cream. That way, when the happy couple drives back to their hotel... or onto their honeymoon, other drivers can honk at and generally irritate the newlyweds.

Today, getaway vehicles are a little more stylish. Now couples can announce their nuptials to oncoming traffic in cute, charming, and photogenic ways.

Here are 13 getaway vehicles that go beyond the old tin can tradition:

1. Garland in the Garage

Draping your car in flowers will get you attention, without causing a noisy traffic hazard.

A simple banner is the only decoration you need to tailgate off into the sunset.
