I've said quite a lot about how to define and find a good limousine rental service provider but have you ever wondered what could go wrong if you rented a limousine from a limousine rental service provider because it was cheap? Have you ever experienced such an incident before....now don't worry about it because it's normal. I've had my fair share of bad experience as well. I, myself, tried to save a couple of hundred bucks by using the cheapest limousine rental service that I could find. Not only was I dissappointed in the end, I was disgruntled, embarrassed and totally befuddled with how stupid I was for not checking.
The afternoon was lazily rolling by last Sunday as a bunch of us girls chatted about everything and anything under the sun. There was something to talk about from piano classes to dog training, from weddings to cake baking…and not forgetting the next big upcoming sale! As we talked, a friend of mine pulled out of her bag, a stack of videos labeled ‘wedding video’ and we instantly pounced on her! Wedding video! You see, she had her wedding only a couple of weeks back and we have been waiting for the wedding video to be out all that time. We had a splendid time during her wedding in Long Island and were eager to see how drunk and hilariously absurd we all were behaving that day.
Getting married is a big event and it’s, also, (let admit this) one big worry. The energy and organizing, and then there’s the money issue to contend with. Getting married isn’t what it used to be which was always a very close-knit and candid affair. Now, everyone wants a big wedding which costs a bomb – not everyone can afford it. Another big worry, apart from the wedding dress, the wedding venue, the wedding favors, the wedding limousine, etc is the honeymoon. The wedding dinner is already going to take a huge chunk of money from your savings or your credit card and the second bite comes from the honeymoon. I’ve friends who have their honeymoons years after the wedding dinner because they wanted something ideal and couldn’t afford to have the honeymoon directly after the wedding. So, the couple agreed to have the wedding when they are financially capable of doing that because the wife refused to settle for a trip to….say…..Jersey City.
Although I’m not privy to bachelor parties (for very obvious reasons….please read name….LADY) but I sure as hell can give you tons of ideas on what to do for a bachelor party if you want to keep things clean. I mean, sure, I know most bachelor parties end up in a strip joint and giving the bachelor a hard time but well….short of saying that I am aging prune (which I am not!) you can make it clean, fun and memorable. And yet, when you plan the bachelor party this way, everybody gets to have some fun too as opposed to a designated driver keeping sober. And no one gets plastered.
Sure, the dress is the most important aspect of your prom attire but let’s not forget the hair. You could be wearing a Prada to the prom but if you don’t have a hair-do that suits your dress, it’s going to be such a waste, anyway. Make mistakes about it, with the right kind of hairstyle, you can look far more glamorous than you’ve ever dared anticipate and that guy you’ve been eyeing all semester….this could be the time to catch his eye. There are so many different options for prom hairstyles but let’s just say irregardless of whether you’ve short or long hair, it’s always possible to turn a plain Jane into a glamour puss.
I was twice a bridesmaids and I know exactly how it feels like to be one for a friend's wedding....totally torn between being happy and madly sad! This is, I found out, an extremely common situation where you become the bridesmaid for your friend's wedding and you feel sad that you're no longer going to have your best friend all to yourself anymore. If you're feeling this kind of anxious feeling, let's just say it wouldn't make any sense to let your anxiousness and fears spoil your excitement for your friend's wedding. This is HER once in a lifetime thing and just because you're thinking of yourself (although it's normal), you can't spoil her big day for her. And yet, you're sitting there thinking 'How dare this bloke come around and whisk your best friend off her feet! The cheek on that guy....I got her first!'
So, you’ve got everything ready for the bachelor or bachelorette party that you’ve been planning….everything right down to the limousine rental’s settled. What else is left, you’re asking. Just to give you a couple of ideas – how about an after-party drinking session at home after the bachelor/bachelorette party? Don’t worry if you don’t have any ideas about what kind of drinks to bring in for the bachelor/bachelorette party because I’ve got quite a couple of cocktail drink recipes to share with you. Sure, you can still have the Brandy Coke or Tequila, but that’s nothing special. These drinks will definitely make the bachelor/bachelorette party more special!
As with a big event, hardly anyone thinks about what the guys are going to wear to the prom because it's the same old thing everywhere, all the time. B-O-R-I-N-G! In fact, think about it….whether it's the prom, the wedding, the birthday, a huge business event or an anniversary, it's the same thing....it's a tuxedo. This is the only way a guy can look presentable and formal at the prom. While the girls have lots of choices as far as colors, designs and fashion is concerned, it's hard for a guy to stand out in the prom. But it's not a hopeless cause, of course....not where Lady Limelight is concerned.
“Not rent a limousine for my prom?? You've got to be kidding...that would be the end of my teenage high school years and I don't get to go riding a limousine. No princess treatment. No celebrity locks and rides. Might as well not go to the prom!” This was what I heard from a friend's daughter recently. The mother was protesting about the prom limousine rental business and the daughter was totally beyond aghast at the idea of NOT renting a limousine for it. Of course, after having a conversation with the friend of mine, the daughter won and she will get to ride in a dream limousine to her prom along with her friends.
Every time a friend is getting married, we organize a slumber party where the girls just sit around sketching out the invitation card. It makes me wonder, sometimes, why would people spend so much time, money and effort in designing a wedding invitation card because most people would end up throwing away the wedding invitation card after the wedding, wouldn’t they? Wouldn’t you? After all, there are very few reasons to keep a wedding invitation card from someone you didn’t know well. But I was wrong. Many of the friends actually keep nice wedding invitation cards along with photos taken during the wedding for keepsake! I should do the same thing, then.
