Depending on the way back era of your choice, and the availability of historical car restorations in your area, finding and renting specialty vintage cars might be easier than you thought.
Fall Wedding Theme
If you’re choosing a wedding venue with outdoor areas, and are planning for a fall wedding, embracing the autumn aesthetic is an easy way to maximize that colorful time of year.

Winter Wedding Theme
Winter weddings are universally known to be magical— and always incorporate a pleasant juxtaposition of warmth in a frozen landscape of snow and frost.
In addition to taking advantage of indoor or climate controlled venues, going with a winter theme means you and your party can add layers, faux fur accents, and long sleeves to the choices of dresses and attire.
Since your guests will likely spend most of their time inside this time of year, be sure to scout a venue that can really put on a show with indoor fireplaces, tunable lights, and other amenities that will maximize the value.
