Best Limo Service Tips For Your Wedding

Best Limo Service Tips For Your Wedding

Are you planning to hire a limo for your wedding day? If the answer is yes, then there are a few questions you need to answer to make the experience successful. What is your budget? What size of limo do you need and what style of limo do you want?

Whatever style wedding you plan, you’ll want to arrive and leave in style. Most limo services won’t reserve the limo a year out, so the best you can do is call at the nine-month mark. Keep in mind; you will need to book your limo 6 to 9 months before your wedding day. There are are many people in line and booking early ensures you’ll get the best limousine.

Before you book your limo, you will need to have this three things at the back of your mind.

What is your budget?

A good limo service could be hired at the rate of $150 to $350 an hour based on you want. To cut cost, consider only renting it for an hour. Of course, be realistic. Will your whole wedding go off without a hitch in an hour or less? For the best of both worlds, rent the car for an hour longer than you expect to need the limo. This way, if anything goes wrong, you won’t be stuck at the venue with no way home. Weddings don’t usually start on time; it is something that cannot always be prevented. The best man forgets his tie, the bridesmaid leaves her boutique in the hotel room, or the parents of the groom are running late. Reduce your stress by planning for those contingencies in your rental time. You want to be sure you have lots of time for the limo to carry you to the venue, wait for the wedding to start, and then take you away after the wedding.

What size of limo do you need?

The next question you will want to ask yourself is what size of limo you’re looking for? Again the rule of the game is to rent bigger than you think you want. When a limo says it can take ten people, it calculates the average weight of the passengers to be 200 pounds or fewer. Throw a few fat guys in there, and it can suddenly become an uncomfortable ride. Not specifically the luxury ride you were counting on for your wedding day. So if you only plan on a party of fifteen, rent for a party of 18. It is better to have extra room than to create a situation where the bridesmaids will have to sit on the laps of the best men and ushers because you went for a smaller car.

What style of limo do you want to hire?

Lastly what type of limo do you want to hire? You can rent an excellent, classic limo that holds twelve to fifteen passengers, or you can go for a flashy limo like a Hummer, Expedition or old roadster. Be prepared to pay higher rates for the specialty limos.

And as you plan your limo budget you should figure in a 15-30% cash tip for the driver. This isn’t just a kind gesture, it’s expected social protocol so make sure you factor it into your wedding budget.

The most unforgettable advantage of a limo service for your wedding day is that you enjoy a stress-free transport experience. You get to sit back and your personal driver will get you to anywhere you wish to go. Wedding limo service is guaranteed to make your day unforgettable and enjoyable. You can start making life-long memories from the minute you leave your home.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
