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 Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.


3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.


Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:


Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.


8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
