Love is in the Air – Planning (Part 2)

Now that you’ve planned the who, what and where, it’s now time to start making reservations.

wedding_planning_2

You might have decided to hire a wedding planner or you are the planner ;).  Either way, start by creating an Excel sheet with names and numbers of your vendors.  Who to call in case there are any last minute changes and so forth. Revise and update as time goes on, as things will no doubt change many times.

For starters, you’ll need to add the Venue, Flowers, and Transportation.

Place your orders and pay any deposits necessary to secure your vendors.

Meet with your vendors and make sure you’ve crossed your t’s and dotted your i’s.  The more specific you are from the get go, the less you will have to worry.

Order your invitations and mail them out at least 2-3 months in advance.  You can also consider sending out a “save the date” card a year in advance.

Stay in contact with your vendors and always make sure to receive updated confirmations.  Look them over!!! Mistakes happen, however many could be easily prevented – just by looking over your confirmations.

Lastly, don’t forget to have your maid of honor or best man to plan out the bachelor party / bachelorette party with the vendor you chose for transportation.  This makes it a lot easier, and you may qualify for a discount for multiple reservations.

You can find out more about our wedding limousine services on our website.  Or feel free to give us a call with any questions, or if you’d like to stop by and see our Los Angeles wedding limo fleet yourself.

Take care & HAPPY PLANNING!

Wedding Anniversary Limousine

wedding_anniversary

It’s that time of year again – you know, the time you forgot last year, which resulted in an extended stay in the ‘doghouse’ for the weekend?  Yes, that’s right, we’re talking about your wedding anniversary.

Well, you can make up for your mistake this year by making the night extra special for your significant other.

 

Flowers?  Sure.

Dinner?  Of course!

But what about getting there?

Drive yourself (and then maybe only one of you can enjoy the wine and/or Champagne).

Cab?  How romantic! (not)…

Oddly named ‘car services’ with wildly different levels of professionalism, or strangely colored facial hair on the grill?  Um, no thanks.

No, you need to do it right.  You need a professional chauffeur, and a luxury limousine.

Arrange for flowers, or a special bottle of wine or Champagne to be waiting for you in the limo.  After the surprise and inevitable hugs and kisses, you’ll be taken to your favorite restaurant – where you and your sweetie can enjoy whatever food and adult beverages you choose.  Then perhaps a drive down to the beach for a romantic late night stroll.

Your driver will be there the whole time.  And when you’re ready to call it a night, he’ll get you back home safely and comfortably.

Of course there are some things you won’t get when you choose a limousine for your anniversary: You won’t get to fight traffic, chase down a parking space, risk a DUI for enjoying one too many adult beverages, or navigating to and from your destinations.  But we’re pretty sure you won’t miss them.

So check out our website, or give us a call 24/7 365 to book your perfect anniversary limousine today.  The chilled Champagne will be waiting…

Thanks for reading.

The Lincoln MKT – The New Limousine Industry Standard!

The limousine industry has had a love affair with Lincoln since the ’90s.  Certainly, Cadillac played a role as well, but for the past 20+ years, it has been dominated by Lincoln – in particular, the Town Car.

These days, Lincoln is coming on strong with the MKT – a luxury crossover vehicle.  Embraced by the limousine industry for its great lines, roomy interior, and sleek style, the MKT is quickly becoming the new standard in luxury.

Sedans and stretch limo variations are all the rage.  We can’t seem to keep the Lincoln MKTs on the lot, as they have quickly become our most asked for limo rental.  They are available in white and black, with a variety of amenities to suit everyone.

Here at SUV Limo, we love the MKT so much that we have retired all of our Town Cars, and replaced them with MKTs.  That’s how much confidence we have in the model.

No Boys Allowed!

Girl's night out 11It’s time for the girls to get out and have fun.  No boys allowed this time around… well, at least not ones we already know.  So, what to do..?  Obviously dinner, drinks, maybe take in a club, or hop to a couple bars.  The night is young, but what’s the best way to do this?  Designated driver?  Taxi?  Uber?  Those may be good options for a couple girls, but you’ve got 8 in your party.  No, you need a limo!

But which limo is the right limo?  Well, since there are 8 of you, a couple popular choices that would fit the bill are the Chrysler 300 stretch limo, the Lincoln Town Car stretch limo, or the Lincoln MKT stretch limo.  All have fantastic lighting and sound, and will certainly attract the attention of onlookers when you pull up to the club.

There are other, larger limousine options available, like limo and party buses, but for this night, one of the three mentioned above will be just right.  So, once your vehicle choice is settled, it’s time to sit back and relax, as your professional chauffeur picks you and your friends up, and navigates through traffic, all while you enjoy your favorite music, drinks, and friends.  There’s no better way to go.  And at the end of the night, when you’ve partied all you can party, you can rest easy knowing you don’t have to do the driving!

So check out the website, or give us a call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  We’ll be happy to set you up with your girls night out limo!

Holiday Limousines!

Now, just to make things clear, we don’t mean limousine that are decorated with a Santa hat – not that there’s anything wrong with that (although to be honest, you won’t find them on our limousines)…

christmas-limoFor most of us, there will always be several holiday parties we get invited to, whether that’s work or friends, but getting to all these parties can be problematic; not to mention dangerous, if you plan on enjoying some holiday beverages.

Christmas_drinksSo, forget about driving yourself.  Get a group of friends or co-workers together, and rent a limo!  No traffic to deal with, no navigation, no parking, and no worries about drinking and driving.  So then it just becomes a question of… which limo do you need?

There are certainly a lot of options when it comes to a limo, and we know it can be confusing to choose one, especially if this is your first time.  So, here are a few suggestions.  If it’s just you and your sweetheart, you could opt for the Lincoln Town Car, or the Mercedes S550 sedans.  For bigger groups (up to 10 passengers), the Chrysler 300 stretch limo would be a fabulous choice.

These options aren’t big enough for your party?  We have more…  The Mercedes Luxury Coach can hold up to 16 people, and the Cadillac Escalade super stretch SUV limousine can accommodate up to 18.  Bigger still?  Your ideal choice then would be the luxury limo bus, which can hold up to 40 of your closest friends!

A Limousine For Your Quinceañera?

A very important celebration in Latin American culture is the quinceañera.  It’s a celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday – marking her passage into womanhood.

Quinceanera honors not only the young woman for her maturity, but also her parents and family. The godparents also play important roles during the ceremony.

Quinceanera_02The day begins with mass to give thanks. The young woman is seated at the foot of the church altar,  in a beautiful formal dress. The godparents have bestowed her with special gifts – including jewelry – to accent the dress. The young woman is accompanied by her damas (maids of honor) and chambelanes (escorts) – these are often siblings, relatives or friends.  Upon completion of the mass, the young woman leaves a bouquet of flowers to the Virgen de Guadalupe.   Her female siblings and friends then distribute gifts of remembrance to all the guests assembled in the church.  After this portion of the ceremony is done, it’s time for photographs, and then… it’s time to party!

Quinceanera_03The Quinceañera is among the most meaningful and beautiful of celebrations – remembered fondly by all in attendance.

Quinceanera_04This isn’t just any old birthday party.  Far more goes into a Quinceañera.  Make it all that more special by planning ahead!  Once you know the venue, have the flowers and the dress, don’t forget to reserve the luxury limo!  Hummer H2 Super Stretch Limos, Cadillac Escalade Super Stretch Limos, and Chrysler 300 Stretch Limos are popular typical choices.  Limo / Party Buses are also available for even larger parties.

Visit our website or give us a call us today for more information.

Date Night – Limo Style

Date Night.

Guys… we’ve all been here at some point in a relationship.  The point where we stop doing as much for our girl as we used to.  We’ve all been guilty of it.  We just take for granted that our ‘Sweetie’ knows we care, but we don’t go out of our way to really show it.

couple_01

Inevitably, this leads to that discussion you don’t want to have… the one where she tells you you’re not being a very good boyfriend, and you need to do something to show her you care about her, and aren’t taking her for granted.

guy_thinkingSo, what to do… You need to make it clear that you still care and love her.  You can ask your male friends what to do – but most likely they won’t have any great advice, because they are likely in the same boat as you with their girlfriends!  So, you started searching the Internet for some ideas, and you stumbled across this blog post.  And, being a limousine service, we have a few suggestions for you!

Chrysler 300B Limo

It’s easy to look through our fleet and pick the perfect limousine – and if you have any trouble, you can always give us a call for advice.  Once the arrangements have been made, we can add any little extras you might want; like making sure her favorite wine is chilled and in the limo, flowers, you name it.  Then it just comes down to what you want to do for the evening.  Dinner, of course, but after that… how about a romantic cruise up PCH through Malibu?  Or if you’re in the South Bay, Palos Verdes is a great option.

PV at night

Sip an after dinner drink with your girl, take in the city lights, listen to her favorites on the stereo… yeah, she knows you care now.
