When you think about prom night it is easy to forget about prom transport. Your first thoughts are about the best dress, shoes and make-up.
Then after all that is sorted, you start to think about transportation.
You obviously want to arrive at prom (or homecoming) in style. But what is the best vehicle to get you to prom?
You can get every other aspect of prom right but fail in this one and past disaster prom stories often involve a vehicle that didn’t work quite as well.
Let’s look at some of the other considerations you have to keep in mind when choosing your form of transport for prom.
What statement do you want to make?
The entire prom event is often about making a statement. Therefore it makes sense that you would choose a form of transport that will help you with this.
There are thousands of options to choose from so you can get creative.
You don’t have to just go with the traditional limo (although if your entire prom theme for this year is elegant and stylish, you may decide to go with the limo).
It is however important that you not only choose the right limo for the event. It is also very important that you book the limo ahead of time.
Keep in mind that it is prom night; a lot of other prom goers are going to be looking to get the same limo you want.
Everyone knows limos are expensive so what do you do when you don’t cannot afford to pay for it? Here’s where you get creative.
Outrageous and unusual prom transport ideas
Depending on the distance from your home to the prom venue, the vehicle you choose can be as outrageous as you want it to be.
Let’s give you a few ideas of some outrageous prom transport ideas that we have seen in the past.
Some of them include
- Roller skates
- Pogo sticks
- Space hoppers
- Golf cart
- Army truck
- Vintage cars
Decide which one is available for you and fits your personality and then just go with it.
Who knows you might end up a little bit of a celebrity at the end of prom night.
Sometimes thinking outside the box may not be for you
The prom transport ideas we have outlined above may be fun to try but not if you have to worry about your hair-do.
Therefore it is very important that you take stock of your entire prom theme before settling on a form of transport.
For instance, if you have an elaborate hair-do that wouldn’t survive high wind, a motorcycle may not work as a prom vehicle.
Take into consideration what you will wear before deciding on the vehicle. This is why it is important to not leave the task of choosing prom transportation until the last minute.
Think about it at about the same time you buy your dress.
What you should know before you hire
Hiring a vehicle for prom is still the most popular way to get prom transportation but there are several things you need to keep in mind when hiring the vehicle. They include;
- Ensure that the vehicle you choose is licensed to carry passengers.
- Your vehicle of choice should also be fully insured.
- It is important that you know the exact number of people the vehicle can carry at one time. This is important not only for your planning but also so that you are not surprised when your vehicle shows up on prom night and it can only seat 2 comfortably.
Finally it is very important that you book the vehicle to arrive at your home or collection point a little bit early.
This is to allow time to take pictures which we know you are going to want.
Booking in advance will also ensure that you avoid disappointments.
