    I heard some good recommendations from people who used Romantique but I think they were more expensive than other places.  I heard bad things about Double Diamond from people.  I'm using A-Class limos, which is located on Hylan Blvd.  The owner was very nice and helpful.  I haven't used them yet but so far things have been great with them.  I'd look into them over Double Diamond.

    Hi! I looked at both limo companies and went with double diamond.

    I did not have the best experience with romantique. I thought the guy was a total jerk. We wanted a party bus. The owner (forget his name) said he can't offer us the bus because it's the night of high school proms and would make more $ off of them than us because their nights last longer etc. He was pushing us into limos but he couldn't offer us the larger ones (again due to prom) so he wanted to separate the guys and girls AND us. It was ridiculous. Then he's all "you won't find a deal as good as this". Dude, we do not want 3 separate limos! Yeah. It was May on that appointment (well in advance) and said how do you even know it will be the same weekend? The school year doesn't start until Sept! But he said he just knows from years past. I'm sorry I went on a tangent but we have friends that used them and were happy so I'm sure there are flip sides to my story.

    Double diamond offered us what we wanted at a price we were happy with.

    There is a new limo co called New Heritage on the south shore that is supposed to be pretty decent too.

    LuvC, would you mind sharing the bad things you heard from double diamond?
    I'd like to make sure we bring up those negative points to the driver or people that work there prior to our wedding. Obviously I would just say I heard from "a friend" and not mention this site.  Thanks :)

     Off the top of my head, I think the driver was rude and may have asked for a bigger tip?  I have a horrible memory.  I'll re-ask the people who gave me stories and get back to you on this.

    Thank you, I appreciate it. Page me if anything, I'm more frequently on the jersey board since i'm getting married in jersey.  
    I feel like I read that in this forum too and hoped it was only a one time occurrence. So tacky that story is.

    To be fair, at least the owner was honest.  Many boards advise you to book early because of prom issues.  And some places, even with a reservation, may and do cancel if they get a better off from prom kids.  Just an fyi.  It does sound like he was pushing for extra limos but his reasoning, even as early as it was, wasn't without some accuracy.

    Slbriz, I do agree with you that's why limos were one of our first vendors. It wasn't even just his reasoning, it was the way he came off rudely, trying to force the 3 limos, and claiming we won't find anything better than them. It just rubbed us the wrong way.

    i've heard good things about Romantique... some of my cousins used them.  I used AMEX in Brooklyn, only b/c we splurged and got the Ford F-650 limo.  It's HUGE!  Bigger than a hummer and nicknamed "The Hummer Killer"

    I would look into Pro Latin Entertainment. They have an amazing fleet and its a newly developed company. They are listed on the Projectwedding.com and gigmasters.com web sites for reviews and photos  of the limos as well.
