Make sure whatever you choose is easily discernible. I laugh at the people around here who have custom plates that make no sense to anyone. If you have to explain it, than it doesnt get your point across.

I like SMTNBLU. Although it means you'll have to own only blue cars to transfer it to! (by the way your car is gorgeous...)

As far as deciphering vanity plates, I struggled with this one for a while, NITCBTC, until I considered the car it was on: a Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder.

Another common one around here is the initials of the married couple that own the car, for example mine would be KMS MLS. At least that's what I think the people are going for, could be something entirely different lol.

not going to lie this car is never going to be for sale, ever. In Canada it's a bit different, vanity plates arent expensive so it wouldn't be a huge deal and you have multiple plates no problem.

something that needs a little bit of deciphering is better in my book...'cause when people get it then they laugh and it's awesome.

I believe SMTNBLU is in reference to the wedding stuff, not the car haha I don't remember how it goes but isn't it something along the lines of "something old, something new.."

Could be way out in left field on that but that's what I thought of lol my vote is SMTNBLU

Something Borrowed, Something Blue...

It has dual meanings since her car is blue and she's a wedding planner
