How to Choose the Right Limousine Company for Your Wedding

September 7, 2012

BrideA wedding day is all about presenting the happy couple in true magical style. In the midst of all the joy, no worries or troubles should mar the wedding. Choosing the right limousine service company to transport bride, groom and the entire wedding party, minimizes potential stresses and maximizes joy and a stylish, romantic atmosphere throughout that magical day.

How do you know which limousine company to choose for your wedding day? The top three things to check before you make a limo reservation are: vehicle style and availability, professionalism and safety records.

The right limousine service company needs to offer options in their fleet of cars that match your style and tastes for your wedding. Do you want a traditional stretch limo in white, or perhaps a classic Rolls Royce limousine that speaks of the elegance of royalty and movies stars? Find a company that offers the perfect cars for the bride, groom, wedding party and close family.

How the limousine service company approaches business with you tells you how reliable they will be, as well as how attentive to important details, like cleanliness and prompt arrival and departure times. The salesperson, service people and the driver should maintain friendly professionalism at all times. Check online reviews for different companies to see if drivers arrived on time in neat uniforms.

A sleek limousine with a smartly dressed driver will go far to make your wedding day exceptional, but safety is tantamount to all fun. Safety records of limousine service companies should be available. The bride and groom want no tragedy, large or small, to mar their perfect day.


You Have a Choice. Choose Wisely in Wedding Transportation! Part 1

July 5, 2012

BrideEvery decision and detail in planning a wedding, regardless of size or venue, is critical. Everything on a wedding day must run like a well oiled machine. Transportation, timing and style are critical elements to every wedding. No question, there are 1000’s of decisions to be made. None are easy. Each carries their own importance and weight. The proper choice of transportation is vital to your wedding day success.

In Manhattan, New York, there are many companies to choose from. However, it is your day. The solution in transportation from the type of limousine, to chauffeur, to all the amenities of the interior should fit your taste and choice, not that of the Company. There is no one-size-fits-all solution.

Too often, companies make people settle due to lack of inventory, personnel, experience, or proper credentials. Brides and Grooms often have to compromise on their wants, by not simply taking the time necessary to research, shop, and ask questions. It is your day and a transportation company needs to serve to your changes, desires, or wishes. That is the mark of a true service provider. One that you can choose and have the confidence that it will deliver on all its promises. Five Towns Limousine is known for such care taking.

Tips to Follow When Making Limo Arrangements for a Wedding in NYC

May 14, 2010

This Rolls Royce limo is perfect for a wedding in NYC.

You know you want to rent a limo for your wedding in NYC. However, what you don’t know is how many to rent, who sits where and who is supposed to organize the transportation. Planning a wedding is hard work already, you don’t need to be stressing about whether or not a limo is booked, proper limo etiquette and limo seating arrangements too. Not to mention, the decision of what kind of limo to rent can be hard as well. Following this guide can help make your wedding planning much easier and the big day run smoothly.

  • Generally the bride’s family organizes transportation for the bride and her bridesmaids to the wedding and the reception. The best man is usually in charge of organizing the transportation for the groomsmen and drives the groom to the ceremony. However, this varies on wedding to wedding, there is no general rule involving a limo for a wedding. It would be acceptable for the bride to book a limo for her attendants and the groom for his. This would probably be the easiest way to ensure all the reservations are made for a perfect NYC wedding.
  • When it comes to choosing the limo, you need to make sure you have one big enough to fit everyone comfortably. Keep in mind that the bride and bridesmaids might be wearing puffy dresses that take up more space. Trying to stuff 10 people into a limo that seats 6-8 is unpleasant and it also wrinkles clothes. If you have a very large group, the Cadillac Escalade limo or the Hummer limo would be great for you, they each seat 12-26 passengers. If it’s a small wedding party, consider renting a Rolls Royce classic wedding limo which seats up to 3 passengers.
  • If possible, meet the driver prior to your wedding day. Having a driver you like, with a familiar face can make a big difference on the special day. Also meeting him or her prior to the wedding day allows you to determine if he or she is professional and friendly. Also make sure there is an understanding about the proper wedding day attire.
  • Ask to see the actual limo you will be provided with on your wedding day, this will give you reassurance that you won’t be disappointed on your special day. Also make sure you have a full understanding of what will be charged to the bill. Many limo companies include gratuity for the driver in the bill so you won’t have to worry about tipping the driver, which is one less thing you’ll have to think about on the big day.

Above all, remember your wedding will be one of the best days of your life that you’ll remember forever. Don’t get too stressed out trying to make every detail perfect because it will ruin the moment. Making arrangements far in advance will help you relax as the big day approaches. When it finally comes, take a deep breath and enjoy.
