Tips On Planning a Custom Limo Party
So, you’ve decided you’re going to have your night out in a custom limo. Maybe it’s a bachelor or bachelorette party, maybe even a part of the wedding itself. Perhaps you just plan to have an especially elegant night out. Whatever the occasion you’re planning might be, there are some simple steps that Executive Coach Builders can give you to make sure your celebration goes smoothly.
Book Your Ride Early
If you’re using a limo rental service, make sure that you make your reservation within a decent amount of time. Demand for limo rentals for events is often high, especially at certain times of year when people are likely to be celebrating seasonal holidays, and you should take this into consideration to avoid disappointment.
Planning Makes Perfect
Professional event planners make a fortune planning parties and events, and there’s a reason—it’s hard! Proper planning can be complicated and daunting, but it’s also essential for things going as they should.
Those unplanned parties of your teenage and college years were fun because they were chaotic and unpredictable, but if you’re splashing cash on a custom limo, you want to know you’re investment is worthwhile. It’s also a good idea to relay these plans to anyone providing service for the event—from the limo to the catering, so everyone knows what to expect.
The more precise your planning is, the easier the night will be from a logistics perspective. A disorganized night on the town can be stressful, especially if you’re custom limo turns up at the wrong time because you’re too late or too early. Put a timeline on your event that you can share with your driver, caterers, and anyone else who has helped you organized.
It’s also important to know what you can’t do. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and find out what’s possible for your party. Shape your plans around these exciting possibilities to avoid disappointment on the night.
Know the Do’s and Dont’s
Speaking of what you can and can’t do—it’s important to lay out some rules for you and your guests. Read up on some of the etiquette for custom limo parties (which Executive Coach Builders has covered before), and make it clear how important it is that everyone behaves (reasonably) well to get the most out of the experience.
You should also establish a “you break it, you bought it” rule, in the event that someone does get a little too rowdy. You need to know that damages won’t be coming out of your pocket.
Cater to Capacity
By the same token, find out how many you can actually fit in your custom limo. If you don’t know beforehand, you might end up with too many guests with too little space. The capacity of a limousine is important for the safety of you, your guests, and your driver.
Draw Up a Drink Menu
If this is an alcoholic affair, then it’s a good idea to also plan what drinks are going to be available in advance. People are picky about what they drink on a big night out, and having a wide selection or specific orders available in your custom limo will add to the experience for everyone. It’s also a good way to make sure that—while riding in the limo—there’s enough of a limit that no one takes things too far.
Set the Mood with Your Soundtrack
Music is a huge part of any good night out, whatever the occasion. If you’re renting a limo or own a custom limo, many models now come with the ability to play MP3s or even stream music. You can also connect to some in-car interfaces via a smartphone. This adds another layer of customization to your party, so come up with an appropriate playlist for the event. Think about what you’re celebrating, who you’re inviting along for the ride and what kind of atmosphere you want while you build your list. Make sure to take a few requests, too.
