Avoiding Your Prom Nightmare

prom

   We have all heard horror stories about limousine companies during prom time. Unfortunately; many of them are true! Several concerned parents have recently contacted me and shared experiences that their families and friends encountered with substandard limousine services in the area.
One such stories included limousines showing up at the front door twenty minutes late while the driver was dressed like he was going to a rock concert. The limousine looked like it was 20 years old with rust protruding from the fenders. To worsen the nightmare, the kids, dressed to the nines in tuxedos and prom gowns got into a limousine that looked like someone dumped their trash into with empty beer bottles and dirty glasses were jammed in the ice chests. What made matters even worse; there was no adequate air conditioning in the limo. Of course the chauffeurs response was; “Well, it was working fine on the way over here”.
This night is about to get even better! The parents continued by telling me that they were called and told that the driver of the limousine drove very erratic to the venue, creating an evident alarm with the prom goers. A responsible chauffeur needs 90 feet of stopping power to bring the car to a complete halt!
At the end of the evening, the driver attempted to go through the drive up window of a local McDonald’s restaurant, causing damage to the vehicle and disbelief with the prom goers. Needless to say, the concerned parents who waited anxiously for their loved ones to return offered no gratuity to the begging driver of the limo!
Warning: Not all limousine companies are alike! Take the time, spend the gas, and go look before you book. Deluxe Limousine Service has a crowded showroom full of new body style Cadillac Escalade, and Lincoln Navigator super stretch limousines for you to choose from. promIn addition, we have been in business 20 years and are fully insured. We are parents too, and would not put your son or daughter in a limousine that we would not put our own children in. Please contact us at 413-821-0069 to discuss how Deluxe Limousine Service can help prevent your son or daughter from experiencing a prom nightmare!

15 Reasons Wedding Season Is the Absolute Freaking BEST

Friends, food, and free booze! What’s not to love?

landscape-1431288019-the-wedding-crashers-wedding-crashers-10748321-1500-998

1. Getting to dress up.
Where else are you gonna wear those four ballgowns you bought on extreme sale at Nordies right after the holidays? I know I’m not the only one stocking up on Michelle Obama Inauguration 2009-style fancy dresses around here! You never know when you’ll need to whip out a bright yellow chiffon tiered confection and look like a goddamned glorious baby chick to celebrate the nuptials of your nearest and dearest. This is what you’ve trained for and you are ready.
2. New shoes!
Weddings always call for new shoes, am I right? I am very right. Nobody has ever been more right.
3. You can wear that crazy fancy jewelry you never get to wear.
Did you inherit the Hope Diamond because your great great grandpa was a jewel thief? Now is the time to bring that puppy out to play!
4. Cocktail hour!
Sure, the food at weddings can be the pits (although sometimes people turn it out! You never know!), but the hors d’oeuvres are usually something extra tasty. Hearts of palm nuggets topped with house-made garlic aioli? Mini pretzels dipped in hot pimento sauce? Skewers filled with the most delicious little tender morsels from heaven above? I’ll take ten of each!

This Magical Disney Proposal Is Unlike Anything You’ve Ever Seen

5. Two words: Signature Cocktails.
Not to brag but I’ve been asked to create signature cocktails for several friends’ weddings and they are the MOST fun because you get to pretend you’re a fancy bartender for several months leading up to the big day. What? You need to get it RIGHT and that might mean going through one, two, three bottles of gin along the way. You’re a good friend, after all. And then at the wedding, you get to down a delicious alcoholic beverage with an adorable name like the “Loosey Goosey” (That was the signature cocktail at my wedding and it RULED.)
6. Two more words: OPEN BAR.
I had to caps lock that one because you know I’m as serious as Samuel L. Jackson in any movie Samuel L. Jackson has ever been in. Draining an open bar at a wedding is your God given right, nay obligation, as a human being on this planet we call Earth. Besides, how else are you gonna get juiced up for hours of dancing?
7. Dancing!
Where else do people over the age of 21 get to cut a rug? Since we’ve all aged out of da club, we’re left to dance by ourselves like sad weirdos or go to weddings. I choose weddings. (JK, I choose both!)
8. Cake!
Or, even better, entire rooms filled with desserts. When else do you get to eat Bananas Foster cake, peanut butter brownie bites, baklava, mini cupcakes, assorted hand pies, and lemon linzers all in one evening? Maybe heaven? If you’re lucky!
9. If you’re single, the exciting chance for romance!
Since there are not tons of opportunities to meet new people post-College, weddings hold the exciting possibility of meeting, greeting, and maybe even bumping uglies with someone not ugly! (And with all that booze, who cares if they’re a little ugly! Pretty people are overrated!) (And if you’re coupled, the exciting chance to get all mushy about l-u-v luv with bae. Best.)
10. Mandatory vacation.
Look, you can’t miss your little sister’s wedding on Richard Branson’s private island, can you? She’s your LITTLE SISTER; she’ll only get married, what? Twice? Three times, tops? You have to be there and no major work assignment from hell will get in the way. Oh well! I guess your temp will have to do it!
11. Seeing long lost friends!
The best thing about going to a high school or college friend’s wedding is that you get to see the people on the periphery of your friend circles that you don’t normally make the time for. And it’s not because you don’t love them—often it’s ’cause they live far away and you’re poor. But at weddings? It’s basically a friend reunion and it’s wonderful!
12. Witnessing the amazing life your friends have created.
It’s so cool to go to a wedding and meet all the amazing people who love the amazing person you love. It’s uplifting, inspiring, and all together awesome. The world is good!
13. Vows.
You WILL cry. It WILL be cathartic. You WILL feel all the love in the world has been magically transported to your heart and you are now a vessel for human kindness and compassion.
14. Surrounded by dudes in suits.
So hot. So hot. The hottest.
15. Hangovers.
Hear me out—a wedding hangover is a special hangover because it’s often accompanied by a brunch with similarly hung over friends before you all head home OR you’re lounging in a hotel room watching a shitty pay-per-view romcom (that you love) and eating room service. Ain’t love grand?
