How To Rock A Drive In Wedding
Drive In Weddings!
In 2020, Buttercup Bus and Lily Jones Events joined forces to create a whole new alternative wedding concept called the Drive-in Vintage Camper Wedding. This new and fun drive in wedding offering is a brilliant idea for socially distanced weddings and micro weddings! Here’s how it works:
‘With their own vintage camper van from Buttercup Bus awaiting them at the venue, each bubble of up to 6 of your guests will be able to enjoy a fun and memorable day celebrating your wedding. You’ll get married from your own beautifully decorated bridal campervan or fully licenced pergola while loved ones look on from their own vintage camper. They won’t miss a thing thanks to their own individual speakers – just like a drive in movie!
After the ‘I Dos,’ guest bubbles can relax on their picnic blanket or chill in their gorgeous vintage campers. They can enjoy some music through their speakers and a picnic hamper full of individually served gourmet food. Drinks will be served via waitress service to each camper van, making for a completely safe yet wonderfully whimsical wedding celebration!
As the sun goes down you can choose to add on fire pits for some marshmallow toasting as guests curl up in their blankets.’
How friggin’ cool does that sound?
