Limousines come in all shapes and sizes, so it’s important to choose the right limousine for your event. You want one that matches the occasion and comfortably seats everyone in your party, whether it’s two or a dozen. Choosing the right limo isn’t difficult once you understand the differences.
It’s a good idea to always work with a service that provides numerous options so you get the perfect limo to match your event. From proms and parties to corporate events, there’s a limo designed for the occasion.
Prom & Wedding Limousines
The classic stretch limousine is what you’ll usually see for proms and weddings. A Lincoln or Chrysler in black or white is most typical and accommodates 6-10 passengers comfortably, depending on the size of the limo. For extra flair for your wedding, a Rolls Royce limo helps the bride and groom feel like royalty.
For a larger group, an SUV stretch or super stretch limousine works better as they accommodate up to 20 passengers. You usually don’t want a limousine much longer as they tend to be difficult to manage, like this elongated disaster. These larger limos are often used for large bridal parties, birthday parties and larger business groups going to corporate events.
When you’re ready for a night of partying, it’s important to choose the right limousine for the occasion. For a small group of less than 10, an SUV stretch provides ample room to move around and keep the party going between venues.
If you want to dance and move around more freely, especially with a group larger than 10, a party bus is the perfect solution. The number of passengers varies based on the type of bus, but can range from 14 to over 40. These provide all the same luxuries you’d find in standard limos, but with more space to party.
Night On The Town Limos
For a night on the town for a couple or even a few couples, a large limousine isn’t necessary. A normal stretch limousine provides an elegant ride and is an affordable choice, especially if two or more couples are going together to dinner, a concert or special art gallery events.
An elegant corporate sedan with a chauffeur works well for one couple that just wants to relax together without worrying about traffic. It’s also the perfect alternative to less than luxurious taxis.
When you think of corporate luxury, your first thought might be Presidential limos, but when you only need to transport one or two executives, a stretch limousine isn’t necessary. Provide executives a comfortable ride throughout their visit by hiring a corporate sedan. This is often the choice when picking up executives at the airport.
For business events, you may want something larger than a sedan in order to transport more people or to offer a more impressive ride for top level executives and special guests. At business luncheons, conferences and open houses, a classic stretch limousine is the perfect choice. It’s elegant, luxurious and professional.
Now that you know the differences between the types of limos and how they fit with different events, there are a few other things to consider. To choose the right limo, you should also think about the number of people in your party. For instance, a small stretch that fits up to six is best for a prom group of only two couples.
The next thing to think about is amenities. For instance, the size of the bar or light options could make the difference between the right and wrong limousine. Make sure the limousine you choose has all the amenities you and your fellow passengers want.
Choose The Right Limousine
Think of choosing a limousine as choosing your own car. It needs to be the right fit for you and your event. Don’t let yourself be disappointed. Know your options upfront and always check out the limousine fleet in person to ensure the limo meets your expectations.
