Dallas girls - Limo Service Help


Recommended Posts

Sorry to be lazy, I just went ahead and copied my Bulletin off of Myspace... cheesy.gif


Hey, does anyone out there have any connections with a limo service in Dallas? Martin and I have decided not to drive on Halloween, and are considering a limo if the price is right. It would totally fit in with our costumes; we'll be going as Hugh Hefner and Holly Madison wink.gif


Also if anyone's interested in sharing a limo then holla! We'll probably be going to Lee Harvey's, Zephyrs and maybe another party.



But honestly we don't have a shitload of cash to throw out there, so the only way we'd go is if we really got a deal.



So if you do happen to know a friend or family member in the biz and would be willing to pass on their info I'd appreciate it!!!


We're also planning on just going around to a few companies around Oak Cliff (where we live) and letting them know that we'd be interested in any cars they might not be able to rent out that night... for a discount of course - if not, we're fine taking a cab, but a limo would be pretty sweet... I haven't been in one since Prom!!!!! wink.gif

Thanks Lisa. Do you even have an idea of how much the normally cost?? It's been like 10 years since I've been in one... most of the sites I've looked up say to call for a quote, which I'm too lazy to do. I tried putting Martin in charge of this one, but... well, you probably know how that goes. I'm sure I'll end up getting stuck pulling it all together! cheesy.gif


And hey, nothin' wrong with passing out candy to all the CUTE little kiddos!! I actually love doing that! However, we live in a gated townhome complex with no kids... boo sad.gif I would totally pass out candy and then go out if I could! So pass out some really good candy for me... y'all can be those "cool people" who give out the "cool candy" smile120.gif

In addition, each limousine service charges a standard gratuity which is based on the total fare. Gratuities averages are 15-20%. If your total rental bill is $300, expect to be charged a $45-$60 gratuity charge. Some companies automatically include gratuitiy in their fare estimates, while others do not. Either way, it is customary to budget gratuity in your rental cost. Limousine chauffeurs earn their living by gratuities much like waiters do in fine dining establishments.

Ok so I found a Limo Company (Blue Diamonds Limousines) who is featured on the Knot and they seem reliable. $390 for 5 hrs which doesn't seem to bad to me! Of course, that's a lot of money, but if we can find some friends to go in on it (it fits 8 ppl comfortably) it wouldn't be too bad...


Thanks again for that website Morgan, it had some great tips and that's where I found this company.


I'm hoping they work out and I can use them because it looks like a majority of their business is in weddings, and I could give them a review on here...

OK well the lady from Blue Diamond Limousines has not responded to my 3 emails and Martin's phone call/voice mail.


Seriously, too bad - she is a wedding coordinator (the owner) who is apparently recommended on the Knot and some other website. I'm pretty disappointed at her level of service so far... She emailed a quote but has failed to respond at all to our questions. HELLO - Halloween is TOMORROW (well, today - it's late cheesy.gif)


Anyways, they do a ton of weddings in the Dallas area and so I was really hoping to try them out and be able to write them a review on here... doesn't look like that will be happening. I gave her a final email asking her to confirm our questions by noon tomorrow, and if not then I will try and go find a different limo company last minute. Again, pretty disappointed by her service (esp given that she has been highly recommended by a few wedding coordinators). She knows I"m a member of this forum and I said I'd be happy to give her a review on her. Not good business to just not reply at all IMO...


Maybe someone will have an "extra" limo tomorrow that we could get for an even better price...! I hope so - I was REALLY looking forward to that.. *crosses fingers*


If she does come through then I will write a review just in case any DFW brides wish to use their services... so far it's not starting off great tho!

    • The two people who matters the most in this situation? You and your partner. It is nice to get an outside opinion but if you have too much of it? It will get messy! I am replying you my response after that has happened to me with my wedding. Although it is quite hard, do not think of the negative opinions. The people who will turn up to your wedding? You will always cherish them even more! That is what has happened with me because my friendship with the people who attended my wedding has improved so much more that I know I can rely on them and they can rely on me. It is disappointing that people will not attend your wedding but it is their loss, not yours. At the end of the day, when they see pictures and videos of your big day they will definitely regret missing out on such event. I am waiting to deal with the aftermath of my wedding from my so called friends, if they say anything they will get an earful! Happy planning, your big day will be worth it! Keep us up to date!
    • Wow, I cannot believe it's been over a year since I last posted! Better keep everyone up to date as everything ended up positive in the end! So, let's start with the situation with W. From my previous post, I have serious consideration removing him from the groomsmen because of the hurtful things he has said to me. Not too after my second post, I asked him once again whether he wants to be part of the groomsmen. The response was around the lines of "I need more solid information". This was before the restriction were lifted. Then he said it was down to finances yet again, even though he said he could have made it but because of what A said, W didn't commit no more. As W was being difficult, I decided to drop him as a groomsmen altogether and replaced him with someone else. Plan B was already in motion and tbh, I wish I did this first to avoid any hassle. Everyone who got invited in plan B all committed themselves to the wedding!  The situation with A is this. I was feeling sad that I was losing this friendship and that spark with him was gone. By the time it was gone, A was "ready" to meet up with me to discuss life and the wedding. When I said I lost spark with him, I really did. I knew that he was ready to meet up with me because it was convenient for him. For example, he wanted to meet up with me because he was driving past my house or was in the area visiting his relative. If he was not doing those things he would not want to meet up with me. Needless to say, every time he kept asking, I just said I was busy. I think deep down something was not right between me and A but he does not want to acknowledge it. I know that W had FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) because that's what he is like. Around the end of last year, rather than messaging me about the DW he went behind my back and asked my SO. He was scared of asking me because he knows if he asked me, I would literally get angry at him. He's nosey and was happy enough to be part of the groomsmen but he listened to A. W didn't asked once but twice to mg SO. My SO just said that she was busy and should ask me about the wedding, not her. W did messagee but not about the wedding plans. I felt this was a sly move by his part. If anything not having A and W there was a blessing in disguise. I met up with the other 4 groomsmen over one weekend and it turns out it was the most fun we all have had for a while. It was as if we continued from the previous conversations in the past as if nothing has changed. I am so glad and proud of this group of groomsmen and glad the other 2 dropped out. The suit fitting went really well and we hung out again to see whether the suits altered fitted or not.  Unfortunately my SO UK group, 5 out of 6 declined the invite. Only 1 accepted it. The other 5 had reasons ranging from good ones to poorer ones 😅 As long one of them turned up then it was good enough for us. My SO's bridesmaids also were amazing. No problems caused whatsoever and they were really excited that our wedding was abroad too! To make things work out before our DW, myself and SO planned out 2 weekends for both groomsmen and bridesmaids to hang out before the DW. We did this so we would not encounter any awkwardness for the first time in DW. Lo and behold, everyone got to know each other and we really are happy that the wedding party weekend went smoothly. I will keep this ambiguous because I do not want A and his group finding out. I got married to my SO this year. What time and month? I will leave this intentionally blank. The wedding itself was everything we have expected. The wedding planner was amazing. The photographer was also amazing too, so glad we went for him. The sneak peak photos are absolutely great, couldn't imagine that the photos turned out like that. The good itself was okay could be better but could be worse. The first dance went relatively well although my SO managed to cock up s move which only I know hahahaha. The wedding ceremony itself went really quickly. I was a bag of nerves to which one of the groomsmen bought the groomsmen a shot each to calm everyone down. It did calm me down for a little bit but the nerves started again with the speeches. I got emotional throughout the speeches. I was not expecting the tear up with the best man speech at all. My speech was meant for my SO but for some reason everyone in the room also cried as well 😂 The all night dancing and fun was the best bit. When every serious part was done, I was able to stop being nervous! The fun went through the whole night and I can see everyone really enjoyed themselves. It was as if myself and SO correctly guess that lockdown restrictions would end. Everyone was thankful that they managed to take part in the DW because they all have been stranded in the country for 3 years! Do I regret having a DW? Hell no! Although it was a smaller party everything was all under control. Everyone had a great time!  More information about my UK group. Some of them congratulated us which was nice to hear. Those congratulated us, I can keep contact. They knew it was difficult coming to DW. At least they are mature enough to say something about it and they did not get the invite. On the other hand, A and W kept constantly monitoring my account for updates along with my SO. It got to the point that W really FOMO that he I followed our stories/posts. A on the other hand is completely out of order. He was invited to DW but made it really uncomfortable to me that he was not happy with DW. During that week, he went on holiday to Spain. I get that Spain is much more cheaper than my DW but it still is annoying. A also said before that he has a few weddings to attend during our DW month. He has not attended any weddings which makes me think that he has lied to me. A and W has lied to me saying it was costly for them to come to my DW. They have both bought PlayStation 5 and went to many designer outlets. If they are so stumped on money why go and buy things? It just shows that they are not good friends at all. Overall good DW. I do not regret it one bit because I know if I did it in the UK, the experience will be a lot different. The UK definitely not as scenic as my DW! 🤣    
    • Hi ! Myself and partner got engaged 7 months ago and we quite quickly asked our friends who we wanted in our wedding party (e.g bridesmaids, MOH and best men etc) who all agreed. After searching many English venues we have decided that we want to marry abroad, our dream is Mexico. We have been and priced this up today and we are incredibly happy. So we have put this forward to our friends and family who we really want there and now we are facing issues. My MOH and my partners Best man are together with a child, they now will not come unless we change to Spain or Greece. My brother, his wife and nephew can only come in one set week which isn't the time we want to marry and also will not come to Mexico. And both our Grandmother's won't come to Mexico.   What do we do? Do we carry on and go to Mexico with the people who will come or do we change our dreams and go to Spain or Greece?  Thoughts please, I'm getting to the point where I don't even want to marry as I'm fed up of friends and family ruining our ideas and dreams with their opinions. 
    • What purpose does a ring actually have? I think they look nice, but to me, wearing a ring doesn’t mean a damn thing. I’m engaged. I’m in a happy, healthy and strong relationship. And to be fully honest if you are ever in a relationship that you’d be willing to risk because of the price of an engagement ring, your partner could do better.
