Prom is all about style, the dress, the tux, the hair, the shoes, the dance moves, they all play an important role in your prom night.
What about arriving in style? Some will argue that there is no point in renting any type of transportation because no one will see you arrive. But we all know it's about the ride, not who notices. Having a luxurious ride for prom is one of the most fun aspects before actually getting to the prom. It makes the night feel that much more special. So don't listen to the naysayer, and enjoy the ride.
The limousine is your typical go-to choice, and for good reasons. It emanates style and class, if you see someone arrive in a limo you automatically think "classy." And as a bonus, it can hold several people, which can make the ride more fun because you share it with your friends.
No disrespect to the limousine, but maybe your style is a bit different. Remember, this is about the ride, and what you and your friends will enjoy the most. So, lets look at some other ways for you to arrive to your prom in a style that suits you best.
If you are looking for other ways for you and your friends to ride together, there are several large group options.
The Party Bus
Comfortable seating, flashing lights, a mini dance floor and blaring music. The party bus will allow you to dance all the way too prom and all the way to the after party. Talk about dancing the night away!
Dancing even during intermission not your thing, but you still want to enjoy the ride with 20 of your closest friends? What about an out of commission school bus, decorated to the hilt for your prom? The best part, you can really customize the decorations to match your style!
Want to enjoy the evening air as you head to prom? A convertible may not be your best choice, especially if you need to keep you or your dates hair from messing up. Plus, you can only fit four people at most into a convertible. A hay ride lets you enjoy the great outdoors with as many of your closest friends you can pile into a trailer full of hay!
If you aren't going to prom in a group, that's ok! There are some great options for just two!
A Luxury Car
Always wanted to ride in a Bentley or Maybach, then this is the style for you. You can even go retro and rent a classic luxury car. It is definitely a once in a lifetime experience.
Horse and Carriage
What better way to make your date feel like a princess than to take her to prom in a horse drawn carriage. This gives you the benefits of enjoying the night air and making the night just like a fairytale! Be sure to have your date home before curfew otherwise you may be walking home with a pumpkin, a dog, and some mice, instead of your carriage.
Rocking cowboy boots with your dress or tux? Even if you aren't this may be the transportation style just for you. A dependable pickup truck. The best part, you probably already have one or know someone who does, so it makes it easy to secure the transportation you want.
No matter which mode of transportation you choose for prom, choose your style and be safe
- Decide early – that way if you need to reserve a vehicle, you have some options.
- Make sure everyone is on board with the decision
- Get pictures – you will treasure them later in life
- If you drive, put down the phone and put 100% concentration into driving – you owe it to yourself and fellow motorists
- Party responsibly
Mr Burch Formal Wear has the distinct privilege to work with some of Birmingham’s best wedding vendors and venues. We would like to take this opportunity to spotlight: Coats Classic Cars.
From the time he was old enough to grab a steering wheel, James Coats was fascinated with cars. During high school, he worked for a retired gentlemen who restored old cars and airplanes and he was hooked. At 16 James bought first antique car and got into the business of fixing up, buying, selling and restoring cars for others. In 2000, the day before his 18th birthday, James drove his first wedding.
Quickly, 10 weddings per year turned into 25, 25 into 50, and 50 into 150. James closed the restoration shop and focused on weddings. Coats Classic Cars is now the largest vintage limousine service in the Southeast, and the only full-time, fully-professional vintage limousine service in Alabama. They had over 150 weddings last year, plus photo displays and antique car events.
