With over 40 million downloads, XE Currency is the most downloaded foreign exchange app. No internet? No problem. One extra feature is the ability to use it offline – it remembers the last currency conversion you did, so even with no internet connection you can still see the exchange rate from the last time you were connected. 
Packing Pro ($2.99 - only for iOS)
No matter how many times you travel, it seems you always forget that ONE item (toothbrush, toothpaste, phone charger, etc). Now - hopefully - there’s an app to solve that problem! Packing Pro is designed to help you remember all of the essentials. With a database of over 800 items to choose from (and ways to create your own item), you’ll be able to create your packing list in no time - plus schedule alerts of anything important you need to do before jetting off.

#TestimonialTuesday - Dynasty Limo Reviews

Long Island's Premiere Limousine Service
P: (631) 587-8500
From airport transportation to Long Island wine tours, we’ve got you covered. If you’re still wondering what makes us the best, just take a look at what some of our customers are saying about us: 
Needed almost last minute car service to the airport and randomly called Dynasty. I'll never use another place again! Matt walked me through the process, gave me my options, discussed price with me, and answered all of my nervous questions with confident ease. He was so great to talk to and made the whole thing so easy for me. Our driver arrived 10 minutes early, helped with all of our luggage, and got us to the airport in plenty of time for our flight- just as Matt said would happen. Really great customer service which is harder and harder to come by these days. A+ for Matt and Dynasty! - Jen S.
I used Dynasty Limos because they were affiliated with the store where I had purchased my dress. They are all so nice in the office and the drivers made sure to make my special day, special. I also received a complementary ride to the airport for my honeymoon. All of their services are great. I would definitely use them again! - Lisa L.
We had planned a wine tasting tour with a bunch of friends and decided to rent from Dynasty. We has previously rented from them for a similar occasion last summer and because of such wonderful service we returned. We were not disappointed. From booking with Matt at their office to our driver Kaz it was a wonderful experience. The limo arrived roughly 20 min early and Kaz greeted us. He was beyond professional and accommodating from the beginning. He took the quickest routes to get out east and was ready to go to the next vineyard at a moments notice. This was worth every penny!! Thank you Dynasty for a great day!! - Stacey L.
Dear Charlie and Dynasty Limo Team: As you know - we contracted your services for a 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. Just wanted to say many thanks for a wonderful experience.  From the moment we stepped into your office to acquire information and book the event - all was seamless.  Another bonus was being able to drop off items, which we wanted in the limo prior to first pick up. Our driver, Patrick, was professional, on time and any task asked was dealt cordially and never a problem. Next time we book - we want Patrick as our driver - he was just terrific! Thanks again! - J Butera

Tips for Planning an Engagement Party

Long Island's Premiere Limousine Service 
P: (631) 587-8500
Did your significant other pop the question this past weekend? If so - congratulations! But now the planning really begins and first up, the engagement party. Typically held soon after a couple becomes engaged (when the news is still fresh), the engagement party is the kick off to the wedding-day countdown.

If you’ve found yourself in this position we’re here to help you get started:

Guest List - Generally speaking, those invited to the engagement party should also receive an invite to the wedding. If you aren’t sure of how large your wedding is going to be just yet, keep this guest list to people you are certain will attend the wedding, like immediate loved ones - close friends and family.

Location - Consider the atmosphere you’d like, a low-key gathering at home or something a bit more formal? You may choose to rent a room at your favorite restaurant, have a brunch at a nice catering hall, or keep things small and intimate at your parent’s house.
Gifts - Unlike a bridal shower or the wedding itself, gifts aren’t typically given at engagement parties. However, it’s not uncommon for some guests to inquire. If you’re accepting gifts this time around, create a registry with items in the low-mid price range - remember, the wedding is still to come! Otherwise, include a note on your invitations that you are not requesting gifts at this time.
Decor - Remember, you don't want to upstage the wedding! Keep things simple, choose decor that reflects you as a couple. You don’t need to match the same color or theme as your wedding day. If budget allows perhaps add some floral centerpieces to perk up the space or try your hand at DIY!
Dynasty Limousine has been the ideal choice for brides and groom in and around the Long Island area because we combine an impressive fleet of immaculately kept luxury vehicles with professional and experienced drivers. If you have any questions about renting the right transportation for your wedding party’s needs - give us a call at 631-587-8500
