All wedding themes should start with a well-designed invitation. If you can’t find a VW Beetle-themed wedding invite that you like, ask an illustrator or graphic designer to come up with a custom image for you. Incorporating VW Beetle imagery into your invitation will give guests a sneak peek at your wedding theme and an indication of what they can expect on the day.

Wedding transport

If you’ve chosen a VW theme for your wedding, there’s really only one choice for your wedding transport. As @hitchedcouk says:

“Vintage wedding cars are a popular choice and it’s easy to see why. They give a classic, timeless feel to the proceedings and ensure the bride’s journey to her wedding with her father is elegant and sophisticated.”

Choosing a VW Beetle to deliver you to the venue on your big day is the perfect way to kick off proceedings and get your guests into the spirit of the day.



Take inspiration from your wedding theme when choosing your wedding favours. You could shop around online to find affordable mini-beetle models to give your guests as gifts. Or if you want to make the present a little tastier, have a local confectioner make you Beetle-shaped lollipops, chocolates or other sweet treats. There are lots of VW Beetle inspired favours available, so why not head online to see what you can come up with?

Wedding cake

When it comes to your wedding cake, you can really have some fun. Find a talented baker to make you a VW themed cake. Make it as bright and colourful as you can to ensure your centrepiece really stands out. You could even ask for a batch of VW cupcakes to accompany your main cake to make your dessert table even more spectacular. Top your wedding cake with mini-VW models instead of figurines to complete your themed bake.
