Wedding Day Ideas: Ten Tips to Add Radio Flyer Style

Wedding planning can be fun – it’s your chance to proclaim your love for another human being in a way that is uniquely you.  We are proud to have been a part of many wedding celebrations through the years as a vehicle that transports people to some of their best memories. 

Radio Flyer represents quality that lasts – just like true love!  Whether your wedding style is chic or rustic, Radio Flyer wagons have added a special touch to this memorable milestone for many.  Here are just a few of our favorite, creative ways Radio Flyer wagons have been part of this very special day:

Ringbearer/Flower Girl Transport:  You can dress up the wagon for a fancier wedding, or go more rustic for an outdoor wedding.  Or if you know someone who is especially handy, why not remake a wagon for a flower girl who is pretty in pink?
Wedding Party Trolley:   There is nothing like a cool set of wheels to cruise around town in on your wedding day. 

Winter Wedding Centerpiece:  Find an old wagon and convert into a magical centerpiece for a winter celebration.

Beverage Caddy:  Nothing beats a cold drink on a hot day.  Use a Radio Flyer red wagon and flavored sodas to add some color to your day—or even match your color scheme.

Wedding Favors:   Help guests plant their own seeds of love by giving flower seeds as a wedding favor, elegantly displayed in an old red wagon.  We especially liked this simple, but elegant sunflower-themed wedding. Can you spot the wagon?

Gift Wagon:  If you are thinking of a rustic wedding and live in a rural area, why not secure a pioneer-type wagon to hold wedding gifts?  Add a string of lights like the one at this beautiful outdoor farm wedding. A mini wagon, like the one pictured here, can be used to gather cards from well-wishers.

Light Up a Room:  Why not use a wagon or two, and fill with mason jars holding votive candles that cast a warm glow on the celebration?  Keep the theme of mason jars and add this cozy cool mason jar chandelier.

Luggage Carrier:  We aren’t sure if this couple was pulling a wagon to their honeymoon, or just wanted to tell the world the good news!  Either way, it is a cute, homemade touch to a very personal and creative wedding.

Getaway Car:  Dozens of people have created their own Radio Flyer wagon cars.  This is a sweet one from Clinton, Illinois. 

Bride vs. Groom:  And for those with a competitive spirit, what about a friendly race between the bride and groom on Radio Flyer wagons?
