ARRIVING IN STYLE - PROM 2016

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Prom is all about style, the dress, the tux, the hair, the shoes, the dance moves, they all play an important role in your prom night. 

What about arriving in style? Some will argue that there is no point in renting any type of transportation because no one will see you arrive. But we all know it's about the ride, not who notices. Having a luxurious ride for prom is one of the most fun aspects before actually getting to the prom. It makes the night feel that much more special. So don't listen to the naysayer, and enjoy the ride. 

The limousine is your typical go-to choice, and for good reasons.  It emanates style and class, if you see someone arrive in a limo you automatically think "classy." And as a bonus, it can hold several people, which can make the ride more fun because you share it with your friends.

No disrespect to the limousine, but maybe your style is a bit different. Remember, this is about the ride, and what you and your friends will enjoy the most. So, lets look at some other ways for you to arrive to your prom in a style that suits you best. 

 

If you are looking for other ways for you and your friends to ride together, there are several large group options.

The Party Bus

 

Comfortable seating, flashing lights, a mini dance floor and blaring music. The party bus will allow you to dance all the way too prom and all the way to the after party. Talk about dancing the night away!

 

School Bus

Dancing even during intermission not your thing, but you still want to enjoy the ride with 20 of your closest friends? What about an out of commission school bus, decorated to the hilt for your prom? The best part, you can really customize the decorations to match your style!

Hay Ride

Want to enjoy the evening air as you head to prom? A convertible may not be your best choice, especially if you need to keep you or your dates hair from messing up. Plus, you can only fit four people at most into a convertible. A hay ride lets you enjoy the great outdoors with as many of your closest friends you can pile into a trailer full of hay! 

 

If you aren't going to prom in a group, that's ok! There are some great options for just two!

A Luxury Car

Always wanted to ride in a Bentley or Maybach, then this is the style for you. You can even go retro and rent a classic luxury car. It is definitely a once in a lifetime experience.

Horse and Carriage

What better way to make your date feel like a princess than to take her to prom in a horse drawn carriage. This gives you the benefits of enjoying the night air and making the night just like a fairytale! Be sure to have your date home before curfew otherwise you may be walking home with a pumpkin, a dog, and some mice, instead of your carriage. 

Pickup Truck

Rocking cowboy boots with your dress or tux? Even if you aren't this may be the transportation style just for you. A dependable pickup truck. The best part, you probably already have one or know someone who does, so it makes it easy to secure the transportation you want. 

 

No matter which mode of transportation you choose for prom, choose your style and be safe

PROM TRANSPORTATION

Wednesday, July 06, 2016

Prom season is interesting…Some students wait their entire life to rent and enjoy limousine service, whereas others simply want a way to get there and another group looks for the most interesting way to reach the event. Check out these great ideas for transportation to the main event.
 
 
Super Stretch Limousines: By far, stretch and super stretch limousines are the most common form of prom transportation. Ranging from 6-8 passenger models, these vehicles are popular with area students. Look for package rates and know that most area limo companies will have a 6 hour minimum on rentals during peak season.

Party Buses: Looking for a way to transport more than 8 passengers in one vehicle? Consider a party bus! These bigger vehicles are basically limo buses. On the small end of the scale are 14 passenger models and they go up in size. Hourly minimums are longer, supply is extremely limited so you’ll want to book early (which can be hard when you’re trying to nail down a group of passengers).

Your Own Car: Some students do opt to drive themselves to prom. Pros? You can leave whenever you want and at most, you are paying for gas. Con? You have to drive yourself.
 
 
Rent An Exotic Ride: You’ll probably need an adult to back the rental (financially, legally and more) Again, see the cons of “your own car” (as more than likely, you rent an exotic ride, you’re not looking for someone else to drive you).

No matter how you decide to arrive at your prom, here are a few things to consider:
  • Decide early – that way if you need to reserve a vehicle, you have some options.
  • Make sure everyone is on board with the decision
  • Get pictures – you will treasure them later in life
  • If you drive, put down the phone and put 100% concentration into driving – you owe it to yourself and fellow motorists
  • Party responsibly
