Fight the Gas Pump: Party Bus in New York Available for Groups

May 23, 2011

It’s that time again. Memorial Day weekend is approaching, the summer travel season is right around the corner, and gas prices are still soaring. The up-and-down market makes it hard to know how much to expect to pay for gas for a summer trip.

For many, Memorial Day weekend travel is an annual custom. This year, AAA projects 34.9 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more for the holiday–which is up 0.2 percent from last year.

If you’re planning a special weekend with friends, you need special transportation. That’s what services for a party bus on Long Island, New York provides.

Why let gas prices hold you back from having a fabulous night out on the town? Getting to your destination is half the fun. It doesn’t matter if you need a limo bus in New Jersey for 15 people, or for 50 people in NYC. Don’t worry about spending money on gas. Worry about how you’re going to celebrate the holiday weekend safely out with friends.

Ride in the perfect vehicle to get you where you want to go, in style.

Bridal Gifts: Creative Ways to Relax on Your Wedding Day in New York Part 2

May 18, 2011

This is part 2 of our 2 part series on choosing gifts for your bridal party. For more suggestions on bridesmaids’ gifts, read part one here.

Creative Baskets
You know your bridesmaids’ tastes and the things they like and don’t like. Find elegant baskets from a local craft store, or shop and fill them up with some of their favorite scents. If one of the girls likes roses, create a basket stuffed with rose potpourri, rose scented candles, bar soap and body spray. Place fake roses in the basket for an extra touch. Your bridesmaids will feel special that you took the time to create a personalized basket tailored to each of them.

Ride in Style
A relaxing, reflective day with you and your bridesmaids is the perfect way to create a sense of calmness and just enjoy each other’s company before the big festivities. Offer to pay for the limo transportation on the day of the wedding in NYC so the girls can get dressed together and minimize wrinkling of their dresses.

Maybe you want to include taking everyone to the ceremony, from the ceremony to reception and then home after the reception. Ask your limo service in New York if you can save money with a pickup/drop off service only.

Choosing the right gift for your bridesmaids doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Just be creative and thoughtful. Your bridesmaids aren’t participating in your wedding to receive a gift; they are standing by your side because they love you.  Don’t fuss over the details. They know how much you appreciate them.

Bridal Gifts: Creative Ways to Relax on Your Wedding Day in New York Part 1

May 11, 2011

The sun is shining, the warm breeze is blowing, all the details are taken care of – it’s a perfect day for a wedding in New York City, and your bridesmaids are standing right next to you.

You want to make sure they know how thankful you are for all of their help. They’re close friends and family, so you don’t want to give them anything they won’t enjoy.

Here are a few suggestions:

Sparkling Jewelery
Weddings are all about creating beautiful lasting memories, so give your bridesmaids jewelery that have meaning. Heart-shaped Cubic Zirconia jewelry serves as a reminder that the day is a celebration of two people uniting in love. Or, you can opt for a tennis bracelet or necklace instead if some of the girls don’t wear earrings. With Cubic Zirconia stones instead of diamonds, you can buy bridesmaid jewelry that looks expensive, but is within your price range.

Comfortable Feet
When it comes to bridal shoes, you want them to be comfortable and special. Nice shoes can get expensive, so perhaps offer to purchase all your bridesmaids shoes. Not only will everyone match, but it will be a sweet gesture of your thanks.

A fun alternative to flat bridal shoes are personalized flip flops for the reception. It will be a relief for you and your bridesmaids to slip into stylish, comfortable flip flops embroidered with your names. Look for ones with cushy heels that were made to dance the night away.
