Wedding Shoe Hacks

Believe it or not, sometimes your wedding shoes might need a little TLC before you walk down the aisle. Whether you have your ceremony indoors or in the great outdoors, there’s a wedding shoe hack made for every big day. If you’re looking to keep your feet on the ground, or jazz up your current wedding shoes, then we have some helpful tips for you!


Opt for Wedges

Looking to walk down an aisle of grass? When it comes to outdoor weddings, heels might be a little intimidating. If you’re looking for the perfect solution to a nature wedding, then it would be best to rock some beautiful wedges!

Unlike heels, wedges will give you a platform to stand on, without the fear of sinking into the grass or picking up some dirt along the way! Additionally, wedges come in all shapes and sizes, pairing beautifully with any gown you choose to wear!

Think about Sneakers

Picture this: you’re halfway through your wedding reception, and your feet are getting sore. Instead of keeping your heels on all night long, think about bringing some fun wedding sneakers along for the ride!

Just like your running sneakers, wedding sneakers will be the perfect solution to keeping comfortable throughout the night! You can entirely opt for any color you’d like, or you can find a beautiful pair of white high tops to go with that gorgeous gown -- it’s entirely up to you!

Get Heel Caps

Thinking about wearing your heels on the lawn? Then it might be best to opt for some heel caps. These clear, rubber stoppers are relatively inexpensive and can be placed on the tip of any heel you choose!

The purpose of these rubber stoppers is that they will keep you afloat and not sunken into the grass. Not only will your guests be in awe over your gown, but they’ll also be in complete awe over how your heels aren’t sinking into the lawn!

Add Heel Embellishments

Just like Christian Louboutin created red bottom heels, you can have fun with the bottom of your heels, too! One of the most popular wedding shoe hacks is to add some embellishments under the heels of your heels!

This can range from your new last name to lyrics from your favorite song. No matter what you choose, this will be a fun, creative and personal way to bring some fun to the most memorable shoes of your life!

Prom 2018 Tips

One of the most significant events of the year has arrived: prom season! Although much preparation has been underway since January (believe it or not), there’s still time to get some little details together before the big night officially arrives! Whether this is your first prom, or your attending a friend’s prom, here are some essential tips to keep in mind:


Early Tux Rental

Plan on getting a tuxedo for your prom? If you’re looking to rent this formal staple, then it’s best to do it as early as possible. Believe it or not, sometimes there’s an influx of potential tux rentals before the prom, which could lead to some tux-less prom goers -- but fear not, prom attendees (and parents)!

The earlier that you inquire for a tux rental, the more options you’ll have for the big night! Additionally, you’ll also get the first pick of the tuxedo of your dreams. It’s indeed a win-win situation for any prom attendee, especially when it comes to rocking the suit of your dreams!

Book a Limo Now

Yes, we might seem a bit partial on this -- but taking a limousine to prom is the best way to get there! Of course, you can always drive your vehicle (if you have your license), but taking a limousine is the best solution since you won’t have to worry about parking, valet or rushing to get here on time!

When you choose to book a limousine from Dynasty, not only will you arrive at your destination with elegance, but we will get you to and from the prom on time. Additionally, a limousine from Dynasty will pick you up from your home and will drive you to the prom safely. Call us today at  (631) 587-8500 or click here to book your prom transportation!

Protect your Ticket

Need a ticket to attend your prom? If that’s the case, then it’s essential to protect it. One of the best ways to keep this vital piece of paper protected is to, of course, keep it in the envelope -- until the big night.

Another way to keep your ticket protected is to laminate it. Not only will you be saving this “big ticket item” (see what we did there?) safe, but you’ll now have a commemorative keepsake (if they let you keep your ticket)!

Alterations Made in Advance

Looking to have alterations made to your dress? If so, it’s best to have them done at least a week, to two weeks in advance. The reason? This will give the tailor enough time to make the proper alterations, with enough room to make some minor “edits” if needed!

Since 1988, Dynasty Limousine has been the ideal choice for families in and around the Long Island area. Our massive fleet of limousines, party buses and shuttles will make it easy for everyone to travel in style and comfort!

Beach 101: Ways to Save

Let’s face it: summertime on Long Island is the absolute best. From concerts to beaches, it feels like a destination vacation without having to travel far! If you’re looking to go and spend the day at one of the many fabulous beaches this summer, then it’s important to know these great beach saving tips:


Visit the Dollar Store

One of the best ways to save on your beach essentials is to visit the dollar store. When you step foot inside one of these marvelous stores, you’ll be welcomed by a surplus of an incredible array of items that will be of great value to you, and your family, when on your staycation.

If you’re looking to save some big bucks, then it’s best to purchase anything from a cooler to your flip-flops at this money-saving wonderland. If you’re looking for brand name sunscreen, then you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see it on the shelves! Dollar stores are indeed an excellent destination for all essentials!

DIY your Essentials

Believe it or not, one of the best beach-saving tips is to create your essentials. Of course, there are some items/necessities that you can’t recreate -- but, there are some you can, such as a beach bag. To start, pick a reusable bag at your local craft store.

From there you can customize the bag with paint, iron transfer images and so much more! This will not only be the best way to have a custom beach bag, but it will also save some money in the process since you won’t have to invest in a “traditional” beach bag for your beach days!

Purchase Online

Another trick to save on your favorite beach essentials is to shop online! Big name digital marketplaces will sell a wide array of any beach products that you’ll need and certainly want. In fact, sometimes you can find an in-store item that you’ve been longing for, at a much lower price online.

Also while shopping online, you’ll be able to score some of your favorite items (in bulk), so you won’t have to purchase them for quite some time! This is the perfect solution to the person who’s always on the go -- or takes frequent trips to the beach!

Ways to Display Flowers on Your Wedding Day

Ah, summer weddings are on the way! There’s nothing better than blue skies, birds chirping and most important: flowers! Coming in a variety of different blooms and sizes, flowers are the perfect addition to liven up any wedding table. If you’re looking for a way to display them, then check out these ideas!


Repurpose a Wine Bottle

One of the best ways to display flowers at your wedding is to place them in an old wine bottle! No matter what the size or shape may be, a wine bottle will give your venue (and flowers) a rustic look that will wow your guests! 

If you’re feeling extra creative, then you can certainly take the bottle and glue some embellishments to the front, as well as decorate it in any way you please!

Spruce up a Soda Bottle

Another fabulous way to display flowers, and give them some character, is to place them in a glass soda bottle. Believe it or not, many grocery stores are starting to bring back the old-timey staples — which still hold that classic, vintage vibe you might be looking for! 

Just like the wine bottle, this will be the perfect way to take what you already have and turn it into a statement piece on each wedding table! Think about how great this will be as a conversation starter! 

Place Them in a Mason Jar

If you’re looking for a rustic way to display your flowers, then placing them a Mason Jar will elevate their charm instantly! Known as one of the most eco-friendly methods of displaying flowers, a Mason Jar is very inexpensive and will tie any room together immediately. 

You’ll be pleasantly surprised at how incredible a Mason Jar can transform any space and add some character! Additionally, you can also dress up your Mason Jar with some ribbon, twine and more!

Use an old Light Bulb 

In need of a new twist on a classic item? Well, you’re in luck: use a light bulb! Of course, while it’s not in use, a light bulb will be the perfect way to spruce up any space with a modern, quirky twist! Simply take an old light bulb and remove the inside bits. 

Once that’s complete, you can place the flowers within the bulb. However, when it comes to displaying it, you can either put the bulb on a temporary stand or suspend it from the ceiling with some string. No matter the outcome, it will look fabulous!

Deconstructing a Wine Glass

From dinner to dessert, one of the best drinks (for those 21 and over) is wine. With an extensive list of varietals and tannins, there’s virtually a bottle of wine that will pair perfectly with any meal. Besides the drink itself, one of the most signature features is the glass in which it is sipped out of — but why is it shaped like that? Let us explain!


The Bowl

Starting with the essential feature of the glass, the bowl is the cup-like part where the wine is held. When it comes to proper wine glassware, there are a few different variations that are used for different wines — such as a winder base for red wines, and a slim base for fruit-filled wines and champagne, too.

The reason why the base is broader for all red wines is that it lets the drink aerate and gives the recipient maximum flavor. Now, when the base of the bowl is slimmer, it locks in the details of the flavor — since many fruit-based wines will lose their “punch” if they’re spread out. 

The Stem

Right underneath the bowl of the wine glass rests the stem. Known as the part to place your hand, this feature plays an integral part in preserving the wine that you’re about to drink. Why is that? As it’s known, red and white wine differentiate regarding preparation.

While red wine is to be served at room temperature, white wine should be served at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. If you hold the wine glass by the bowl and not by the stem, then your body heat (hello, hand) will warm the wine up and will make it taste different than intended.

The Base

Just like finishing off some great wine, we finally reach the bottom of the glass itself: the base. Unlike the bottom of a coffee mug, the base is light and full. This makes it simple for the glass to stand up and not fall over.

This will not only keep your wine sturdy, but it will also make help the wine be balanced. You won’t have to worry about the glass toppling over due to a fast pour. If the base was shaped any other way, then it could lead to a free-falling wine — which wouldn’t be fun in the slightest.

DIY Ideas for Wedding Mason Jars

Since the early days of meal preparation, Mason Jars have come a long way. From preserving canned goods (such as vegetables) to storing odds and ends around your home, they serve multiple purposes and are a perfect way to move towards green practices -- especially at weddings! If you’re looking for some of the best ways to use Mason Jars on the big day, then we have the perfect ideas to share!
Drinkware

Looking to spruce up the drinkware at your wedding? Why not use Mason Jars as drinkware! Durability with some character, Mason Jars will be the perfect statement piece when it comes to entertaining guests  — especially in the warmer months! 

Unlike standard drinkware, Mason Jars are less likely to shatter — unless dropped on the ground, of course. Also, they’re less likely to chip! In addition to withstanding the elements, a Mason Jar will be the perfect glass to serve a fun, festive cocktail in! The possibilities are endless (and fun)!

Candles

Another wonderful idea for Mason Jars is to use them as candle holders! Whether you’re planning on using large candles or tealights, a Mason Jar will make the perfect “home” for the candle since it can manage well during temperature change. 

Additionally, you can even fill the base of the Mason Jar up with sand or any other non-flammable accessories; no matter what you choose, you can always make it the prettiest Mason Jar of the season!

Seashells

When you go to the beach, do you usually collect seashells? If so, what do you typically do with them? Believe it or not, the best way to preserve (and display) them is in a Mason Jar! If you’re looking to show off your “loot” and give your wedding some summer-esc accents, then this will be the perfect solution! 

Merely get a Mason Jar of any size and place it in the center of a table. The next time you travel to the beach and pick up some shells, just drop them in the Mason Jar. You’ll not only have the perfect treasure, but it will be the best home decoration for the years to come!
