Tips For Wedding Transportation For Your Big Day!

Posted by Julie Nashawaty on Thu, Sep 20, 2018 @ 14:09 PM

Wedding transportation is a HUGE part of your big day and we've been caring for brides in and around New England and Boston since 1985.  Now that you've said "I will!", it's time to get to planning!  Here's a great timeline for you to follow on picking your transportation services for your big day.  Remember, you want your wedding day to be as stress free as possible so don't just go off price, read below to make sure you'll be taken care of for your dream wedding.

 

Six to Twelve Months Ahead

- Start to research your local limousine services. Look for reviews by Brides and Grooms, read the company’s website to   get a sense of their niche. If they appear focused on airport and taxi service, they may not be as experienced as a company that focuses on special occasions and weddings

- Call, don’t email. You can get a good sense of the quality of the operation by how the phone call goes. If there is a wedding specialist or wedding manager, the company likely has some expertise in the matter. Conversely, if there are issues with their professionalism, it may be apparent. Trust your instincts.

- Ask for their assistance in figuring out the logistics. A good provider will present multiple options, will guide you on the size and number of vehicles you need, and will map out exact routes and times so you can be assured that your plan is successful from the start.

- Plan a visit to inspect and view the vehicles. You want to know exactly what you’re getting. You wouldn’t buy a cake without a tasting right? 

- Make special requests. For example request a specific car from the fleet, ask for your favorite (or most senior) chauffeur, your favorite bottle of bubbly or sparkling grape juice instead of the house brand.

-Sign a detailed contract that includes all of your expectations, payment and pricing, your contracted time span and the company policy if you go over your time.

 

Two to Four Months Ahead

- Book a limo for your bachelor/bachelorette night out, rehearsal dinner, transportation for out-of-town guests, and most importantly, your honeymoon!

- Pay off  your balance including gratuity so that you don’t have to worry about handling cash the day of your wedding

- Plan a seating chart for each leg of the transportation. This is especially helpful if you have multiple vehicles. The bride should always be seated at the drivers’ rear door to allow all the other passengers to get in and out of the passenger side rear door ahead of the bride so she can make her grand exit out of the limo with everyone watching!

- Will the photographer want to ride upfront with the driver? If so make sure to coordinate with each party

 

Your wedding day

The chauffeur and photographer will coordinate many classic photos including the champagne toast, so don’t pop it open yourself! Let your chauffeur pour the champagne, open and close your doors, and assist in loading and unloading your party, flowers, and incidentals!

- If you’ve picked a great company, they will be ahead of schedule, the driver will know exactly where he’s going, and you’ll feel confident enough to sit back, relax and be present to the luxury and beauty that you created for your special day.

- As you've already paid in full ahead of time - no need to worry about money, all you need to do is enjoy yourself and try not to let the day move ahead too quickly.  You'll be amazed at how fast this will fly by.

Car Service To Logan (BOS) Airport

Posted by Julie Nashawaty on Tue, Aug 14, 2018 @ 12:08 PM

Continental - Ext

If you're looking for a car service to Logan (BOS) Airport, you've probably found a lot of sites online that either promise you low cost shuttles or outdated websites leaving you wondering if the company is sill even in business.  I know because I've searched around.  There's nothing more frustrating than trying to find a reliable transportation company and that's exactly why Accent Limousine Service was started.

In 1985 Rick and Susan Nashawaty were looking for a limousine to rent for Rick's parents 40 year wedding anniversary and found the same problems you're finding looking for an awesome transportation service.  That's when they set out to be the change they wanted to see in the world.  For the last 33 years, they have grown this family business into what it is today... the most reliable, affordable, white glove service in the New England area.

Maybe it's your first time looking for a car, maybe you've been having issues with your current service, maybe you're already one of our thousands of existing customers, but whatever the reason you're here on this site right now, I can guarantee you that if you choose Accent you won't go back to any other way to travel. 

Also, I don't know about you, but there's nothing better then getting a text 5 minutes ahead of time that my driver is outside, to take my time, and that he/she is ready to take me to the airport.  Traveling can be super stressful and that's why the team here at Accent Limousine relies on our core values of customer service, and being on time, on budget, and in style to take your trip over the top.

Taking A Limousine Service To A Concert With Accent Limousine Service

Posted by Julie Nashawaty on Wed, Aug 8, 2018 @ 12:08 PM

One of my favorite memories growing up is taking a limousine to a concert and thinking I was as big of a rock star as Madonna was!  I would get all dressed up, anxiously wait for the limousine to arrive, and me and my teenage friends would pile into the car and head off to a night of amazing entertainment.  These days, getting into the car and finding an icy bottle of champagne waiting for us (21+ and we still all get carded) and then heading down to Gillette to see Taylor Swift take over the stadium is just as amazing as when I was young.

Are you thinking of taking a limousine to a concert?  If so, here are my top five reasons to take a limousine to Gillette, Fenway Park, Mohegan Sun, xfinity center, House of Blues, Bank of America Pavilion, TD Garden, - really anywhere in New England.  You should see some of the places our Accent cars have traveled. 

  1. SAFETY! You'll never have to worry about how many bubbly drinks you've had to then have to drive home after.
  2. PRICE!  On that note, a limousine is a hell of a lot cheaper than a DUI.
  3. FUN! Blast the tunes in the back and rock out without worrying about dancing and driving.
  4. SERVICE!  You have a dedicated chauffeur that will take care of all your needs for the night, leaving you with no stress.
  5. INSTAGRAM WORTHY!  Take all the selfies and photos of you glamming it up in the fancy limo!

Picture the photos you could post of you in here:

Chrysler 300 - Black Limousine Int  Yeah, I thought so.

Winter Fun in Boston with Accent Limousine

Posted by Julie Nashawaty on Wed, Jan 9, 2013 @ 11:01 AM

Snow overlooking the Hancock

Happy winter everyone!  I can't believe New England waited so long to dump snow on us and it's supposed to be 50 degrees tomorrow?  We all know to never count on an actual weather pattern in this part of the country... one day we get two feet of snow, the next day a suntan.  It's crazy!

So what have you been doing this winter?  I hope you've all been enjoying making snow angels and taking the kids sledding before this white stuff melts.  Here are a few ideas for some winter fun!

  • Boston.com complied a great list a couple of years ago of 40 Great Places to Sled Around Boston if looking for fun new hills to tackle. 
  • If you're into ice skating, we all know that the best place for an afternoon of skating fun is the Boston Common Frog Pond.  Take a look at their web page for hours and information. 
  • I've never been a skier or snowboarder but my husband used to teach snowboarding lessons at Blue Hills Ski Area when he was younger and swears that if you don't want to invest an entire day or weekend heading up north for snow, that you can definitely get your fix at Blue Hills.
  • If you want the full skiing experience, head on up to Vermont to Killington and experience skiing, dining, and a night away for a great little winter getaway. 
  • If you'd prefer to stay out of the cold, head to one of Boston's best museums and leave the snow to the bunnies.
  • Warm up with a hot delicious meal at one of Boston's best restaurants!  With Savored.com, you can get 40% off your bill and have an amazing meal on the cheap.

There are still so many things you can get out and do in this winter wonderland, all you have to do is call Accent Limousine for a ride to your destination and they'll crank up the heat and bring you to wherever your next adventure lies.  Take a limo to Foxwoods, have a big night out, or even go for a scenic snowy ride in one of Accent's beautiful cars.  Accent Limousine is the only number you need for some winter fun.

A Weekend in Newport, RI

Posted by Julie Nashawaty on Wed, Jul 18, 2012 @ 09:07 AM

Newport by Julie RyanHey guys!  Remember my Summer Bucket List?  I've been slowly but surely crossing things off that list and one of those "action items" was to spend a night in Newport, RI.  Well, I managed to cross it off twice because I got to spend a full weekend there a few weeks ago!

I actually graduated college from Salve Regina University in Newport ten years ago and I've only been back once so this trip was in desperate need.  I missed this gorgeous town.  I went with six amazing women and had an absolute blast. 

Here are some of my recommendations if you're heading to Newport for some fun and sun:

  • Atlantic Beach Hotel & Suites is the perfect hotel to stay at if you're looking for direct access to the beach.  They'll give you towels and all you have to do is cross the road to dive into the ocean.
  • If you're looking to stay right in town with all the shops and restaurants, you can't go wrong with Hotel Viking.  The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and One Bellevue Restaurant serves some killer fancy seafood.
  • Head down to Bowen's Wharf to check out some amazing yachts and have a few drinks at one of the MANY bars and restaurants right on the water.
  • Take a relaxing ride along Ocean Drive (which is ranked #1 of all attractions in Newport) and bask in the spectacular view of the Atlantic Ocean.
  • Check out the Newport Mansions: The Breakers, Marble House, Rosecliff, Chateau-sur-Mer, The Elms... incredible architecture and wonderful history.
  • Grab a quick lunch at The Brick Alley Pub.  Between their huge salad bar and delicious lobster roll, you'll get a taste of Newport and continue window shopping down Thames Street.
  • Dance the night away at The Pelham.  They have cheap drinks, cover bands, a late-night DJ, and before you know it you'll be closing out the bar at 1:00am.

Oh and one big tip?  If you're spending the night downtown and your hotel is more than a mile away, arrange a taxi beforehand to come and get you.  We learned this lesson and weren't able to find one cab in Newport at 1:15am and had to walk a mile and a half back to our hotel.  My feet hurt.

So just head down to Newport, explore the city, the restaurants, the architecture, the nature, the drinks, and your company.  That's what summers are for!

While planning your trip to Newport be sure to factor in your transportation.  Accent Limousine Service is the best limousine and transportation service in New England and will make all of your transportation needs easy as pie.  Want a ride to Newport?  They're on it.  Want them to pick you up then pick the rest of your party up and take everyone out for fun?  No problem.  One they drop you in Newport you can make arrangements for a time for Accent to come back and get you.  Accent Limousine works around your plans, your schedule, and your budget.  So whether your planning on a trip to Newport, a bachelorette party in the city, or just looking for a ride to the airport, call 800-696-LIMO for all of your transportation needs.

Let me know if you need any more Newport recommendations in the comment section, I have a lot more to give!

Patriotic Fourth of July Recipes

Posted by Julie Nashawaty on Mon, Jul 2, 2012 @ 09:07 AM

American FlagThe Fourth of July is only two days away!  Can anyone tell me where June went??  Every year we attend my husbands Fourth of July family party in Walpole, MA and our job is to bring the beer and some dips.  Now, I love me some dips.  I even created my own little Dip Board on Pinterest (you can check out all my boards here and follow me if you're on Pinterest).  This year I'm going with the ever so simple Hot Pepper Jelly and Cream Cheese dip (so easy but so addicting!) and the Knorr Spinach Dip (there's a good reason why the recipe is on the box).

But when it's time to rock the red, white, and blue throughout the food, here are some great suggestions for some festive and fun recipes to bring to any party.

I can't wait to dig into all the delicious food that the family always brings to the party on Wednesday - after seeing all of these recipes, I think I'm going to have to show up with a few more treats!

If you're coming into Boston to see the amazing Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular,  be sure to call Accent Limousine for a ride into the city.  Trust me, I've lived in Boston for almost ten years and I can tell you that the traffic, lack of parking, and congestion in the city is a nightmare on holidays and can put a serious damper on your night.  If you call Accent, you'll have a beautiful ride into Boston, get dropped off where ever you choose, and when you're ready to go you can just call your driver and he'll be right around the corner.  How easy is that?  Whether you need a ride into town, a ride to the airport, a limousine for a concert, or even limousines for your wedding... Accent Limousine is your #1 choice for all of your transportation services.

Have a wonderful Fourth of July!!!

Strawberries
Happy Summer Everyone!!!!!  The heat this week has been pretty brutal, that's one way to start Summer off with a bang.

Every Summer I come up with a list of things I want to do (my Summer Bucket List) and this year I plan to tackle every single one of them.  These months seem to fly by and I want to take advantage of every warm Summer day and night we have.  Here we go!

This list shouldn't be that hard to accomplish!  Want to add anything to this list?  Feel free to tell me what else to check out in the comments section.  You should join me and start your own Summer Bucket list - there are only so many days in the Summer, let's make it count.

Oh, and be sure to put "Call Accent Limousine and make a reservation for a super fun big night out" on your Summer Bucket List.  What could be better than a night out in the city with the ones you love, sitting by the water eating and drinking your favorite things, and having the time of your life without a care in the world.  That should be on the "All Seasons Bucket List".  Whether you've got a trip planned out of town and need a ride to the airport or you've got a wedding coming up, Accent Limousine is your go-to for all transportation needs.

Accent Limousine Restaurant Review: Cagney's Pub in Quincy

Posted by Julie Nashawaty on Wed, May 30, 2012 @ 15:05 PM

Onion Rings

My apologies if that picture makes you drool on your keyboard.

Okay.  So, Cagney's Pub in Quincy, MA (located at 214 Washington Street) is one of my all time low-key bar/restaurants.  When the owner recently got in touch with me to do a photoshoot for the restaurants new website I jumped on the opportunity in hopes of being able to eat the food after I was done photographing it.  I have been coming to eat, drink, and play darts here for almost four years and when I'm in the mood to grab an affordable delicious dinner, I always come to Cagney's.

Cheesy Chicken Sandwich

I mean seriously.  This Polynesian Chicken Sandwich is the thing of dreams and surprisingly, it's healthy!  What more could you want?

Chocolate Cake

Between amazing appetizers like Fried Mac & Cheese Wedges and Homemade Potato Chips & Dip and incredible desserts like this Gooey Chocolate Cake, there's literally something for everyone.  Check out the menu here.

I had a blast photographing Cagney's Pub and you can see a lot more of my food photography and atmosphere shots on their website.  I believe that there's absolutely no reason for a gorgeous website to have bad photos on it.

If you own a business and want your website pictures to pop, go to Julie Ann Ryan Photography to learn more and I'll work with you to make your website stand out from the rest.  If you're just plain old hungry... head on over to Cagney's. ;)

I've been working with Accent Limousine Service on a number of photography events and if you ever want to be in a photoshoot and be featured on AccentLimo.com, just call them up (you should have their number by now, right?  800-696-LIMO!) and we can set up a day and time for me to meet you out in Boston in your gorgeous limousine and photoshoot some of your event.  Accent is your one stop shop for all of your transportation needs whether it be wedding limousines, airport services, or a limo to Mohegan - they've got you covered for whatever you need on time, on budget, and in style.
