2018 Jones Beach Light Show: Pro Tips

The holiday season is officially here, and what better way to celebrate than with some holiday lights! That’s right: the Magic of Lights show is back at Jones Beach this year and is better than ever! Whether you’ve attended this spectacular annually or this is your first year, here are some essential pro tips to know before going:


Show Details

  • Currently running until Sunday, December 30, 2018.
  • Dusk until 10pm, Monday-Thursday & Sunday; Dusk until 11pm, Friday-Saturday.
  • Held at West End at Jones Beach.
  • Weekdays: $25 (per vehicle) Weekends: $30 (per vehicle).

Pro Tips

Weekdays are Better

Thinking about attending the light show on a weekend? Sure, that might be a tad more convenient — but it’s actually the most inconvenient time to go, believe it or not. Think about it this way: when you’re going during the week, there’s less of a crow, since many will hold off until they’re off from work. Plus, with fewer crowds, you’ll be able to take your time during the show — and not rushing.

Go Early

Are you set on seeing the show after dinner? Well, it’s better to go before supper because you’ll not only beat the crowds, but you’ll beat the chances of waiting on line to purchase your tickets.

Purchase in Advance

Did you know that you can purchase your tickets in advance? If you happen to do this, instead of paying at the gate, then the show will only cost $20 — no matter what day you attend the show! To purchase your tickets in advance, visit Live Nation for more information!

Don’t Delay

Thinking about going closer to the holidays? Well, you won’t be the only one with that idea — which will lead to more lines of light show traffic. If you’re looking to keep your experience stress-free, then it’s best to either attend the show before the big holidays arrive or after they’ve left!

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!

Winter Wedding Hacks 2018

One of the most popular trends in 2018 is to have a winter wedding! Whether it’s held at the beginning of the season or closer towards the spring, there are a variety of different ways to celebrate the big, snowy day in style! However, if you’re looking to de-stress some of the smaller details on this monumental event, then here are some ways to do so:


Plan to Arrive Early

When you opt for a winter wedding, you’ll already be going into the planning stage knowing that there’s a chance that snow could fall at any second. Of course, you can’t control the weather — but you can plan accordingly.

Even if there’s a chance of a light snow shower for later on in the day, it’s best to arrive at your ceremony/reception space as early as possible. This will not only help you beat the rush of a potential storm, but you’ll feel much more at ease knowing that you won’t be late on your big day.

Bring Options

Granted, you might want to rock a beautiful pair of heels on the big day — but if there’s ice on the ground, then wearing this specific type of footwear won’t be the best choice. The solution? Plan on bringing two pairs of shoes on your big day.

If you’re not sure what to bring, then it’s best to opt for footwear that has a flat, rubber sole, which will keep you slip-free when entering/leaving a venue. Of course, once you’re inside, then you can put on your special heels and dance the night away!

Provide Blankets

Think that some of your wedding guests will be a tad cold during the ceremony? If that’s the case, then it’s best to provide some wedding blankets on the big day, since some venues lack heat — or are just drafty in general. Indeed, you don’t have to invest in designer duds — but you can purchase blankets, in bulk, from an online retailer for a reasonable price!

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!

Why you Should Use Airline Mobile Apps

Are you going on a trip soon? If that’s the case, did you remember to print out your plane ticket? Better yet, do you know what gate you’ll be boarding at? Although these are completely normal thoughts to run through any traveler’s mind, there is a solution: an airline mobile app. Not sure why you should download one before your trip? Here are some perks:


Early Check-In

Are you racing at the last possible minute to get to the airport and check-in for your flight? Well, instead of rushing through traffic, you can merely check-in anywhere from 24-48 hours ahead of time on an airline mobile app. Not only will this put your mind at ease, but it will ultimately expedite the process for you once you arrive at the airport!

Digital Ticket

Frantically looking for the digital ticket kiosk or dread waiting on a long line? If that’s the case, then an airline mobile app will let you download a digital boarding pass at your fingertips. This is not only the perfect solution to acquiring your ticket at a fast pace, but it’s also ideal for those that tend to lose important paperwork since you can save most digital passes to your phone’s camera roll!

Chat a Representative

Have a pressing question that you need to ask your airline, regarding changing your seat or the time of your flight? Of course, you could always call them and be placed on hold — or you could use your airline mobile app to “text” a representative directly.

Believe it or not, many airline apps offer an instant messaging feature that will let you speak with a representative in real time, almost as if you’re chatting to a friend. Not only is this extremely helpful, but it will definitely give you the stress-free experience you’ve always dreamed of!

No matter where your 2018 (or 2019) travel plans take you, Dynasty Limousine will be there to handle your transportation needs. We offer competitive rates for Airport and Ground Transportation in the New York area. Call and request a quote today (631) 587-8500!

Helpful Thanksgiving Tips to Know

Surprise: Thanksgiving is only a few days away — but are you prepared for the big day? Whether this is your first time hosting this glorious holiday at your home or your twentieth, there are a few tips and tricks to get ready before the first guest arrives! Not sure where to start? Sit back, relax, and feast (pun intended) your eyes on these fabulous tips:


Create Place Cards

Sure, this might seem more appropriate for a wedding or sweet sixteen, but creating place cards for your Thanksgiving table is the best way to create a stress-free environment for all that attend. Of course, you could let your guests decide on their own — but then that leaves room for error, since some family members want to sit near each other and not on opposite sides of the table.

Tidy Up the Day Before

Running around your home trying to pick up stray socks? To eliminate the rush and embarrassment, it’s best to start cleaning your house the day before. Not only will this be a great way to make sure everything looks presentable, but you won’t be struggling at the last minute trying to vacuum the staircase — which isn’t something many homeowners do on a daily basis.

Design a Menu

Afraid you might forget to make a dish or two? If that’s the case, then it would be wise to create a custom menu for the big day! Of course, you don’t have to go to the local print shop and have a restaurant-worthy menu created — but even creating a list on your phone will be more helpful than having nothing at all. This will not only keep you organized, but it will also help you eliminate anything that might go uneaten (we’re looking at you, brussel sprouts).

The Dos and Don'ts of Carry-On Luggage

Ah, the joys of packing for a trip! Sure, it might seem simple to bring your necessities — but when you’re utilizing the perk of a carry-on bag, then packing might become a struggle. Of course, there are a series of regulations (rightfully so) when it comes to packing this courtesy bag — but what can and can’t you bring with you? Let us explain:


Don’t Bring Over 3.4 Ounces

One of the biggest tips we cannot stress enough is carrying liquids that are under 3.4 ounces. Indeed, if you happen to ignore this rule, then your possessions will be tossed by TSA with no questions asked.

If you do feel as if you can’t survive without a specific grooming product or cosmetic, then you will have the option to either purchase it after the security check at an airport shop, or you can wait until you arrive at your destination and purchase the item at a local convenience store for half the price.

Do Carry an Extra Bag (If Allowed)

Believe it or not, many airlines are now allowing passengers an extra carry-on bag, in addition to their overhead suitcase. Of course, it’s important to check with your specific airline — but many will allow passengers to bring either a briefcase, backpack or tote bag to store under the seat in front of them.

This is the perfect solution for those that might bring back an abundance of souvenirs or might tend to over-pack. Additionally, if you’re going for a short trip, then this will be the best solution to save a few dollars on a checked bag!

Don’t Over Pack Your Suitcase

Sure, it might seem fine when you leave your home — but if your carry-on is broader or heavier than what’s allowed, then you will be forced to check-in your carry-on bag. Of course, the simplest solution is to check a bag — but then there is always the possibility that it could cost a pretty penny if it’s rather heavy.

Do Measure and Weigh Your Bag

If you’re fearing that you’ll have to check your carry-on bag, then it’s essential to measure and weigh your bag before your flight. To do this, you’ll want to visit your airline’s website and see what dimensions they’ll allow for a carry-on bag, in addition to bag weight.

Once you acquire this information, take a tape measure and measure your bag empty, followed by weighing it empty on a standard scale. Once you pack the bag, then measure and weigh it again. This will give you peace of mind, knowing that your carry-on will be good to go!

Key West, Florida

Looking to stay on the East Coast this winter? If that’s the case, then look no further than Key West, Florida! Unlike any other tropical excursion, Key West hosts an incredible array of sights and sounds, with a beautiful variety of adventures you can take! One of the best things to do in Key West is to take up a scuba diving or snorkeling session, which will give you some of the best aquatic sights around town!

Halloween 2018 Safety Tips

Halloween is only five days away — and your little one is already gearing up for the big day! Sure, they might be a pro a trick-or-treating, but there are some precautions that all parents must take before the candy collecting begins. If you’re not sure where to start, then we have a few helpful tips to share!


Make Reflective Costumes

One of the most significant safety trends, in recent years, is to adorn reflective tape to your child’s costume. This is one of the best ways to make sure that your little one’s outfit stands out when crossing the street and walking around the neighborhood. If you’re not sure where to start, it’s actually pretty simple to add some reflective elements.

First, you’ll want to visit your local home improvement store and pick up some adhesive reflective tape. Next, take your child’s costume and stick the tape in vertical strips up the pant legs and arms. Once complete, you’ll have safety-proofed your child’s Halloween costume!

Trick-or-Treat in Groups

Want to create one of the most fun experiences for your child and their friends this Halloween? Then we highly recommend getting a group of parents together to piece together a giant trick-or-treat group! This will not only be the perfect way for your children to collect candy together, but it will also be a simple way for parents to supervise their little ones as a whole, rather than just one adult taking on the sometimes difficult task.

Always Check Candy

The most important tip in Halloween safety? A candy check. Sure, it might be tempting for your child to dive into their trick-or-treat bucket for a treat — but it’s also somewhat risky, too. To eliminate any potential dangers, it’s best to establish a rule with your child that they can’t eat any of their candy until you examine each piece.

Bring Flashlights

Another important tip is always to make sure that you have a flashlight with you. Of course, many neighborhoods are illuminated — but there is a chance that some walkways might be uneven. To prevent any falls, it’s best to give your little ones flashlights, too, encouraging them to shine them at the ground as they walk.

If you want to take it up a festive notch, then you can certainly turn this into a fun-filled game, asking your children to see if they can spot any pumpkins, ghosts and other festive decorations as they walk around with their flashlight; we’re sure they’re going to love that!

How to Throw a Halloween Party on a Budget

Fact: Halloween is one of the best times of the year to throw a party! Whether it’s held with a large group of people at a venue or with a few friends at your house, there’s always room to make some boo-tiful memories — but what if you’re on a budget? Here are some fang-tastic tips on how to throw the best celebration for less!


Keep it Simple

Looking to go over the top with your festive Halloween decorations? If that’s the case, then it’s usually best to keep your design on the simpler end of the spectrum. Sometimes overdecorating can be rather costly and make your party too “busy” in appearance.

The best bet? Find some simple decorations that can really tie the space together. One of the best spots to find party essentials on Long Island is Party Glitters of Hauppauge! This place is your go-to independently-owned party hotspot and will have everything you’re looking for! From utensils to decorations, you’ll be able to find it all at this incredible store with ease!

Bring On the Food

Another essential staple of any party? The food! Of course, it would be simple to hire a catering company to handle this task at your event — but that can be rather expensive. The solution? Visit one of your local wholesale stores to get your essentials. Of course, you need to have a pre-existing membership, but typically signing up is rather inexpensive.

One of the best spots to purchase your goods is at Costco of Melville. This will be the best way to get a large variety of food at a fraction of the cost! Think about it: you can just pick up a few appetizers, followed by an entree-sized meal and you’ll be good to go! The best part? You’ll usually have leftovers that will last you for the next few days!

Carpool Together

Holding your Halloween party at a restaurant or venue? If that’s the case, then it may be wise to carpool with your guests. Think about it: you’ll be saving gas while arriving at the same time! The perfect solution is to reserve a ride with Dynasty Limousine!

Whether it’s a large group of people or only a few handfuls, we’ll able to transport you and your guests with one of our impressive limousine fleets! From 27 passenger shuttle buses to a 20 passenger Cadillac Escalade Limo, there’s an option to accommodate any party!

This year, the legendary Village Halloween Parade will be celebrating its 45th Anniversary in style! The parade will be held on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, on Halloween and will start sharply at 7pm.

The parade will span the entire length of 6th Ave. (Spring to 16th Street) and it’s highly recommended that you take a subway to the event — since there will be no parking in sight. For specific subway instructions and which lines to take, the parade’s official website breaks it down in full detail!

Theme
If you’re not sure what to go as this year, then the parade suggests you dress up as (drum roll, please) a robot! That’s correct: each year, the committee sets a theme that attendees can follow — but definitely encourage every guest to wear whatever costume they desire! 

The inspiration behind this year’s theme is loosely based on Mary Shelley’s legendary book Frankenstein. Since the novel will be celebrating it’s 200th anniversary this year, the committee wanted to take the subject of human vs. monster into a new direction: robots. So, whether you plan on dressing up as R2D2 from Star Wars or Johnny 5 from Short Circut, the possibilities are endless!

Pro Tips
Just like the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the annual Village Halloween Parade can be quite overwhelming — since there will definitely be a crowd. If you’re planning on attending for the first time, then here are some tips to consider:
  • Don’t be late: Give yourself enough time to commute to the parade route.
  • Stay in a group: Since it will be crowded, it’s essential that if you go as a group to stay as a group — since it will be simple to get split up.
  • Bring water: As you guessed, since the sidewalks will be packed, it may be difficult to find a food cart or store to purchase some water. Therefore, it’s essential to bring your own!
  • Have fun: This is one of the most significant, most legendary events in New York City — plus, it’s Halloween! Have a grand time watching this wonderful parade!

Bridal Bouquet Alternatives

Believe it or not, some brides aren’t a fan of flowers. Some even opt to carry nothing down the aisle on their big day. However, if you want to try something different on your wedding day, or aren’t a fan of plants, then here are some alternatives to carry with you:


Vintage Parasol

One of the hottest trends to replace flowers is to take a vintage parasol down the aisle! Of course, you might not want to carry an open parasol in an indoor venue (if you’re superstitious), but instead, this would be the perfect alternative for an outdoor wedding!

Not only will a parasol add a bit of retro elegance to your big day, but you won’t worry as much when placing it down — unlike a bouquet of flowers. Indeed, if you can’t find a vintage parasol, you can go online and find some inspired versions for a fraction of the cost!

Feathers

Another significant new wave trend for weddings is for a bride to carry a bouquet made of feathers! That’s right: feathers are the in-trend and come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors/patterns that will blend with any wedding theme! Of course, the simplest way to obtain feathers (if you happen to create your own) is to visit your local craft store.

If you’re not sold on the idea of creating your feather bouquet for the big day, then you can indeed have one custom made by searching online. Not only will a feather bouquet last for the years to come, but it will also be an incredible statement piece at your wedding!

Lantern

Holding a wedding in the evening or at night? If that’s the case, then a lantern will do the trick! One of the best ways to acquire a lantern is to visit your local dollar store. From there, you can pick up a relatively inexpensive lantern and spray paint it any color you’d like. 

To keep your wedding lantern safe — especially if your flower girl and ring bearer will be carrying one, too — you can then opt for battery-operated flame-less candles. These will be the perfect way to create a little magic on your big day!

Looking for a beautiful dress for the big day? Stop by our Village Bridal & Boutique (attached to Dynasty Limousine) today! You’ll be amazed at the incredible gowns you can find, at wonderful prices!

For more information, please call (631) 587-2800! We can’t wait to see you soon and help plan for the big day!

Groom’s Cake Ideas 2018

Ah, the wedding cake! Known to be a staple of any couple’s big day, it can certainly draw attention on its looks alone. However, if you’ve been reading the latest wedding trend news, Groom’s Cakes are an absolute hit on the big day!

Known to sit alongside your wedding cake, this little-baked good reflects the groom’s personality and is usually given as a gift from their spouse! If you’re not sure what to decide on for the design, then here are some great ideas:


Favorite Sport

Does your groom-to-be have a favorite sport? Whether they play basketball or are a die-hard baseball fan, there are plenty of sports-themed cakes to create. One of the most popular ideas is to have a cake creation in the shape of their favorite team’s mascot! Not only will this be the center of attention, besides your actual wedding cake, but the look on your groom’s face will be priceless!

Favorite Food

Of course, a cake is edible and considered food — but it’s nothing like a burger or a slice of pizza! If your groom-to-be is a "foodie," then a fun groom’s cake design can replicate their favorite meal. This can range anywhere from a t-bone steak to a bowl of pasta. No matter what your groom loves to eat (besides wedding cake), it will be a great creation!

Favorite Drink

Another great groom’s cake creation is to replicate your groom’s favorite drink — especially if it comes in a unique-shaped bottle! If your future husband like whiskey or bourbon, then you can have the cake shaped like the beverage — and even have the cake layers soaked in the drink, too (but make sure it’s only consumed by those that are 21+)! Now, if your guy loves wine, then a wine-bottle shaped groom’s cake will be a great statement piece!

Favorite Movie

Does your hubby like to recite their favorite movie lines? If that’s the case, then re-creating a character or famous scene from their favorite film will be the perfect groom’s cake! If your man has more than one film in their heart, then you can have a cake that will embody all of them — which will undoubtedly be jaw-dropping! No matter what you choose, we’re confident your groom will love his movie cake!

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!

The Pros and Cons of a Bridal Veil

When it comes to wedding dresses, the most iconic accessory is a veil. Whether this staple is made from diamonds or flowers, there’s a veil to go with any wedding and dress. Although most brides may feel as if this headpiece is necessary, it’s actually up to their discretion. If you’re not sure whether you want to don a veil, then here are some tips to known:


Pros of a Veil

A Statement Piece

One of the best features of a bridal veil is that it’s a timeless statement piece for a bride. You know exactly what we’re talking about, ladies: from Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday to Julia Roberts in Runaway Bride, the veil is a staple of wedding culture!

Of course, when it comes to your veil, the style is entirely up to you. From the length to the material it’s made out of, there are no rights or wrongs when it comes to this fashionable accessory! 

The Finishing Touch

Indeed, when you’re about to get married, most brides want that traditional “bridal look.” Of course, your dress will be the ultimate statement piece — but the veil is the finishing touch that most brides long for. When you put a veil on your head, it will be like the icing on top of the wedding cake; sweet and sentimental! 

When you visit Village Bridal, not only will we have an extensive array of fabulous and beautiful veils, but we also have a large variety of jewelry and accessories to bring your wedding veil dreams to new heights!

Cons of a Veil

Might be Annoying

If you’re not a fan of hair blowing around in your face, then a veil might be out of the question for you. Since a veil is made from a light, airy material, such as tulle, there’s a great chance that your headpiece will blow around on your big day — especially if you’re holding the ceremony outside.

Additionally, if you plan on showing off your fabulous bridal hair on the big day, then a veil will block your guests' view. Of course, veils can be trimmed to the desired length — but even the shortest of veils could get in the way, surprisingly.

An Additional Cost

When it comes to planning your wedding, the dress is typically the most expensive part of your budget. However, if you have a specific budget in mind, then a veil could usually run at a higher cost than expected. This will not only chip away at your dress budget — but you might feel as if you’d rather spend it all on your dress and not the veil.

No matter what you choose, we’re confident that you’re going to look stunning on your wedding day, with or without a veil! 

Looking for a beautiful dress for the big day? Stop by our Village Bridal & Boutique (attached to Dynasty Limousine) today! You’ll be amazed at the incredible gowns you can find, at wonderful prices!

For more information, please call (631) 587-2800! We can’t wait to see you soon and help plan for the big day!

How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Dress

Besides The MET Gala, one of the most important days for a dress is your wedding! Sure, you might have your dream gown in mind — but sometimes it takes hard work and determination to find it. Of course, the process can seem a tad overwhelming — and that’s why we’re here to help! 


Find a Budget

First and foremost, before you go on the search for a dress, you’ll want to factor in your budget. Believe it or not, sometimes your dream gown can cost as much as a pre-owned car (we’re serious) which can throw you back down to square one. 

To find a budget that works best for you, go online and do your homework on wedding gowns. From famous brands to the lesser-known bands, don’t eliminate any dress in your sight — because you might be pleasantly surprised to see how much they cost. 

Once you secure an ideal budget, then it’s time to search for the dress of your dreams!

Searching for the Dress

When looking for your wedding dress, as mentioned before, you want to keep all options available. Sometimes, the gown of your dreams might not be comfortable to wear, or it could be sold-out. No matter what the reason may be, you always want to factor every gown you see into the equation! 

Before you purchase your gown, you’ll want to try on each gown you like, since it’s all about the perfect fit — and you may be surprised that a favorite dress of yours may not look as you hoped it would.

Once you know what you’re looking for, it’s time to head to a bridal shop, such as Village Bridal. Not only will our staff be able to accommodate your dress expectations, but we also offer in-house alterations, too! This will assure you that once you find the perfect gown, it will fit like a dream come true!

In addition to finding the perfect dress, Village Bridal will also be able to help you find the ideal bridesmaids gowns, shoes, accessories and more for your big day. These, of course, are just as important as your beautiful wedding gown — and will indeed be the icing on the cake (pun intended).

Looking for a beautiful dress for the big day? Stop by our Village Bridal & Boutique (attached to Dynasty Limousine) today! You’ll be amazed at the incredible gowns you can find, at wonderful prices!

Alternatives for a Wedding Cake

One of the most iconic pieces of any wedding is the cake. From extravagant wedding cakes to small wedding cakes, there’s a perfect baked confection for every couple that ties the knot!

While cake is traditional, some couples would rather not have a cake — either because they’re not a fan of the baked good or want to change things up. No matter the reason for a cake-less wedding, here are some sweet alternatives to check out:


Cupcakes

Still looking for something sweet for the big day? Look no further than wedding cupcakes! Of course, cupcakes are the tiniest version of a wedding cake — but they do not disappoint! When you opt for cupcakes, you have the option of having as many flavors as you’d like, in addition to a variety of different designs.

Cupcakes are the perfect solution for couples that want to keep their dessert on a budget while having a variety of options to choose from, too.

Donuts

Another great option to replace your wedding cake are some festive donuts! Whether you’re looking to have custom donuts that replicate your theme or some from your favorite donut shop, the possibilities are entirely endless — and undoubtedly delicious!

One of the best reasons why donuts make an excellent choice is that there are many ways to display them! From placing the donuts on a vertical pegboard to stacking them up in the shape of a cake, you can let your imagination (and sweet tooth) run wild with your fabulous wedding donuts!

Cake Pops

In search of a new wave idea that will get your guests talking? Why not have some custom cake pops on your big day! That’s right: the little cake creations that you see at your favorite coffee shop are making a significant impact in the wedding world!

Since cake pops are quite simple to make, you can either D-I-Y the process at your home — or you can have them made, professionally. No matter how you acquire your wedding cake pops, your guests will be in for a memorable treat!

Ice Cream Sundaes

Not a fan of anything cake-based? If that’s the case, then an ice cream sundae bar will be the best bet! From traditional sundaes to larger than life creations, the possibilities are entirely endless when it comes to making one of these delicious concoctions!

If you’re lucky, sometimes the venue you’re holding your wedding at will even offer this as a complimentary service, when you purchase a catering package!
