While the standard "just married" sign and tin cans on your car is always reliable, why not up your ceremony exit game? After the sparklers have fizzled out and the confetti has been thrown, hop into a vehicle that fits your wedding style. Ride off on a tandem bicycle after a casual backyard ceremony, jump into a classic car at your country club reception or step onto a tour bus with all your guests at your city wedding. If you don't have a friend or relative with an amazing cool ride, see what alternative options your local valet companies offer. Check out these 17 fun ways to take your first ride into the sunset as a married couple.
