I need a limo of the prom is the clarion of many teenagers these days, but a limo for the prom can mean anything from an executive limo such as the one offered by Bon Voyage, to a stretch limo (the type that can collapse in the middle) we’ve even heard of some teenagers arriving at the prom in trucks and fire engines!
Today a limo for the prom can literally mean anything, how long will it be before someone arrives in a helicopter although they probably have already.
In the early years of Proms way back in the 1920’s and 1930’s the high school prom served a similar function to what was known as the débutantes ball. A débutante or deb is a girl or young lady from an aristocratic or upper class family who has reached the age of maturity and, as a new adult, is introduced to society at a formal “début” presentation. The originally mission of the débutantes ball was meant to show that a young woman was eligible to marry, and part of the whole process was to display her to eligible bachelors with a view to marriage within a select circle.
Proms were elegant and refined with a view to properly providing girls with the opportunity to be grabbed by the best eligible bachelor. Girls were on strict orders to ensure proper and refined etiquette whilst looking wonderful and providing charming company. Of course boys had to play their role also, again superb etiquette and a sparkle that meant success was expected at all times. This was a competition for the best partner, best connections and ultimately the greatest union of riches and estates.
Over time the spirit of the original proms still remains with similar finery and attempts at proper etiquette, however a different form of competition prevails, today bigger brasher, louder seems to be more important in some circles than fine, sophisticated and luxurious.
Limo for the prom – be a real winner!
In the majority of instances the ‘real winners’ are those who opt for the definition of elegance, the ones who take time to ensure everything is done with the finest attention to proprietary. The real winners in life wouldn’t dream of arriving to a prom in a gold plated golf buggy or a pink fire engine for that matter, the real winners on prom night are those who go for classic sophisticated luxury.
So the next time you hear the cry “I need a limo for the prom”, why not choose the winning option, make your ‘limo for the prom’ a luxurious executive vehicle, provide the comfort and space for just you and your partner to travel in absolute luxury, be exclusive and make it really special. The real statement is the sophisticated statement – let’s face it have you ever seen those will real wealth arrive at a function on a day glow golf buggy.
