Information Your Limo Service will Want from You

 Girls Night Out in a Limo

Getting the right limo often depends on making sure you give the limousine company all the proper information. Here’s a list of the facts we recommend you have prior to calling to make a reservation.

  • They need to know the type of event. Do you want to hire them for a Wedding, Bachelor/Bachelorette Party, Airport Transfer, Point-to-Point Transfer, Night Out, Birthday Party, Sweet 16, Tour, Casino Trip, Concert, Prom, Meeting or  Special Event. Some rentals have minimum hour requirements and some are just a set fee.

    This information helps the company plan your trip. They may offer Scavenger Hunts for a Sweet 16 or Bachelorette Party. They may offer red carpet service for the bride. There could be special comp packages at casinos or VIP treatment packages and free passes at night clubs.

  • Tell them the date of your event and how long do you need your rental to be. The date is important even if you’re just looking for quotes. The company can only quote based on vehicle availability. As you plan your excursion, consider the time you want to be at your final destination. You need to consider the drive time when planning your length of service requirements.

  • Determine how many people will be traveling with you. This will affect what type of vehicle you can ride in. While switching from 12 to 13 passengers sounds simple enough, you’re likely to have to change from a limo to a party bus with that extra passenger. There are two considerations. First how many people can the vehicle legally hold? The Department of Transportation sets this guideline and it is strictly enforced. Secondly, how many people fit comfortably? If you’re going to be in the vehicle for a long time, you may want to ask about the "suggested" passenger count.

    Here are all the types of vehicles available:

  1. Sedans (mostly Town cars but sometimes Chrysler 300s, recommended for 1 to 3 travelers)

  2. SUVs (good option for those traveling with lots of luggage, they can hold up to 6 Passengers)

  3. 6 Passenger Limousine (Seats 4 comfortably)

  4. 8 Passenger Limousine (Seats 6 comfortably)

  5. 10 Passenger Limousine (Seats 8 comfortably)

  6. 12 Passenger Limousine (Seats 10 comfortably)

  7. 12 Passenger Mercedes Sprinter (Seats 10 comfortably)

  8. 12 Passenger Stretch SUV (Seats 10 comfortably)

  9. 18 Passenger Limo Bus (Seats 16 comfortably)

  10. 26 to 28 Party Buses (Seats 24 to 26 comfortably)

  11. 35 Passenger Trolley (Seats 33 comfortably)

  12. 36 Passenger Shuttle Bus (Seats 36 comfortable)

  • Decide what amenities do you need. If you planning to bring a DVD to watch on the flat screen or an iPod to listen to, etc., ask the limo company if they can accommodate those requests. Consider all the details for your ride. Do you need ice, bottle water or glassware? Ask if they can offer what you need.

  • Be prepared to pay if you want to reserve. Almost always you have to put down a deposit in order to hold the rental. Unlike hotels or airlines, there’s not waiting list or stand by passengers waiting to use the transportation if you cancel. The limo company needs your commitment or they risk losing other rental opportunities for the vehicle. You can typically pay with cash or credit card and the balance would be due at the start of your ride.

The reservationist is there to help. Just give them all the information so that they can help you make the best choice. Consider Le Limo, we strive to help you Return to an Era of Unparalleled Luxury. Call for a "limo consult," 508-842-4790.

8 Fun Games for the Bridal Shower

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Feb 19, 2014 @ 01:12 PM

The bridal shower can be very formal or an extremely casual affair. Either way, we think it should be fun. Below you can find some of the best of the best in the bridal shower party games category. If it’s your job to “get this party started,” these ideas might help.

It's all about the wedding gown for this group of beautiful brides!

1.Toilet Paper Haute Couture

Divide the group into teams, and give each team four rolls of toilet paper. Pick one person in each group to be “the model.” Using only the assigned rolls of toilet paper, each team “designs” a high fashion wedding gown. Let the bride chooses the winner.

2. Shower Gift Bingo

Each guest is given a blank bingo card, with a blank 4 x 4 grid. Each guest fills in the blanks with the gifts they think the bride will receive at her shower. Each player can have the bonus of writing her own gift on the card, the goal is to fill a row of five horizontally, vertically or diagonally. As the bride opens her gifts, players cross them off your card.

3. Bridal Pictionary

Divide the guests into two teams. Provide a large drawing pad for each team. One person draws while her team tries to guess a wedding-related words or phrases: To Have and To Hold, Happily Ever After, Just Married, I Do, First Dance, The Princess Bride, The Wedding Singer, The Five Year Engagement, Bridezilla, Toss the bouquet, Rehearsal dinner, Honeymoon.

4. The Soon-to-Be-Wed Game

Before the bridal shower, interview the groom and ask him personal questions and get information about their relationship: “What is the groom most afraid of?” “Where was your first kiss?” “What's does he think is her most annoying habit?” Then the bride the same questions and see if she can answer correctly. Every time she gets one wrong she has to chew a piece of gum or depending on the group, she has to have a drink for every wrong answer. If she gets the answer right, the party guests drink.

5. Scavenger Hunt in a Purse

Create a list of standard items you might have in your purse -- start with the basics (lipstick, credit cards, keys) and work your way up to more random or adventurous objects (carabineer, condoms, dog treats).

6. Who’s Blank is it Anyway?

Before the shower the host interviews both the bride and groom and asks them to finish sentences about their relationship, family, etc. Guests then need to guess if the answer is from the bride or the groom. “I was first attracted to spouse-to-be because of his/her great__________.” “On our first dinner out together, I ordered__________.” “I think my new mother-in-law is very__________.” “My fiancé looks best when he/she is wearing the color__________.” “I’d be happy if we kissed__________times a week.” “I love when he/she grabs me in the__________.”

7. Two Truths And A Lie

Guests retell their funniest/wildest experiences with the bride. Each guest introduces herself and dishes about three interesting events she's had with the bride – except one of stories isn't true. Other guests try to find the lie in storyteller’s tales.

8. Who did what with whom?

Everyone tries to figure out what the bride did with whom. Hand out paper and have each guest write a description of their widest escapade with the bride. The host collects the cards and reads each adventure out loud. The guests have to guess which party goer was the accomplice in each instance. Party members can add confusion by guessing other guests even when they know the event involved them.

As always, be safe when you’re having fun. Try to avoid hurt feelings, drunk drivers and saying anything that will lead the bride to cancel the wedding! Of course, if you need transportation for a wedding or a night out, call Le Limo 800-297-4970.

Le Limo's Bachelorette Party Scavenger Hunt

Posted by Michael Foilb on Wed, Nov 20, 2013 @ 11:17 AM

It’s not truly a bachelorette party until you and the bride and the bridesmaids spend a night out, embarrassing each other. It seems like a “Bachelorette Scavenge Hunt” is good way to start some trouble. Divide into groups of 4 or 5 and make sure you have photographic evidence of your “achievements.”

ToiletPaperVeil

  1. Get you picture taken with a cop (preferable while not in a jail cell) -10 pts.
  2. Find a coin from the year the bride was born, triple the points if it’s a foreign coin. – 5 pts
  3. Where your bra over your clothes for the time it takes to finish a drink – 10 pts. for each team member
  4. Collect a coaster signed by the bartender – 5 pts.
  5. Make a veil out of toilet paper wear it for the length of 2 songs – 10 pts.
  6. Get a piggyback ride from a stranger – 5 pts.
  7. Find a guy who will let you put your lipstick on him – 5 pts./10 pts. if it’s someplace other than face or arms
  8. Get a guy to give you his socks – 10 pts.
  9. Black out one of your team members teeth (this should be done with makeup or some other peaceful means, no weapons please) - 5 pts.
  10. Find someone whose birthday is on the wedding day – 5 pts.
  11. Get a guy to hand feed you a cherry – 5 pts. for each team member photographed
  12. Team member doing a handstand in the bar (we cannot be held responsible for what might be found on the floor!) – 5 pts. per team member
  13. Find a guy to give you a breath mint – (but don’t eat it) 5 pts.
  14. Wear your hair in pigtails for the night – 10 pts. (this makes #15 more of a challenge)
  15. Get phone numbers from 3 random guys – 10 pts (going out with one of them next weekend, priceless)
  16. Find a guy to practice the wedding march with you…for 5 steps – 5 pts.
  17. Ask a guy if you can feel his 6 pack abs – 5 pts. (using your tongue, 15 pts.)

Now it’s important that the team with the most success is given a prize, even a crappy one. It’s good to have incentive to be foolish…YOLO.
