The Quinceañera Expo!

Greetings from the Riverbend Sports Complex!

We are coming to you today from the Quinceañera Magazine – Utah expo, a lively and colorful event full of fun and celebratory themes. The quinceañera is a very, very important cultural celebration for Latin American girls, marking the transition to womanhood and stretching back to around 550 B.C.

As the event sponsor, VIP Limousine arrived early in the day with two limousines to flank the main stage: the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and the Hummer H2. We had guests getting in and out of them all day long, checking out the luxurious and stylish interiors and modern exteriors. Additionally, several of the models as well as the emcee took pictures with the vehicles.

Quinceañera Magazine – Utah, as the host, set up the stage with a catwalk for several rounds of models, showing off some modern and some traditional styles of dresses for all of the girls. They also featured some young and skillful dancers set to the best possible music for a party: Latin.

One particularly incredible thing about this expo was the number of different companies featured here with their products and services. Here’s a list of some which are featured:

  • Joyeria Uribe
  • Sunny Day’s Cakes
  • Princess House
  • U-nique Floral
  • Ataly Stylo’s
  • Rumba Libre Band
  • Montenegro Events
  • Mi Ranchito
  • Complete Weddings and Events

Joyeria Uribe is a jewelry company based in West Valley City, Utah, specializing in traditional and celebratory jewelry fit for a quinceañera queen.

Sunny Day’s Cakes is an award-winning bakery based in Eagle Mountain, Utah. They have been featured on the show Cake Wars on Food Network and produce some delicious and unique desserts. The representatives on hand brought some amazing tiered cakes and cupcakes. Go give them a try! It’s worth the drive.

Princess House specializes in household items and cookware, geared towards individuals who like to host their own dinners and parties.

U-nique Floral is a local floral shop which specializes in flower arrangements for quinceañeras, weddings, funerals, and even hospital patients.

Ataly Stylo’s is a beauty and cosmetics shop located in Midvale which does a broad range of makeup, nails, and other products.

The Rumba Libre Band is a live, local band specializing in Latin music. According to their website, they perform in the styles of Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bachata, and Latin Jazz. According to our ears at the Expo, they sounded great, since once the runway shows completed they entertained us for the remainder of the event.

The Montenegro Event Center is located in West Valley City, and is open for musical and private special events, including weddings, parties, and of course, quinceañeras.

Mi Ranchito Grill was the Mexican restaurant that helped provide food for the event. They have several locations across the Wasatch Front in Utah, including Salt Lake City and Orem, and have been here since 1983.

Complete Weddings and Events is a wedding package, DJ, and event planning company based in Salt Lake City. They also do photography, video, and other work by request. We had a chance to check out their awesome photo booth on display, too!

A great thing about these expos is they allow local companies to come together and showcase the best of what they have to offer. For important events, it is very helpful to know where you can turn for particular services, and furthermore to know that they will meet or exceed your expectations to make the day special. This is crucial in the quinceañera market. That’s why as one of these companies, VIP Limousine is committed to world class limousine service and providing VIP treatment from start to finish.

VIP Limousine Services

Some of our favorite events include quinceañeras! The celebration of a young woman’s 15th birthday is an old tradition in Latin American communities, marking the transition to womanhood. Quinceañeras are said to come from the Aztec culture, starting around 500 B.C. With the man of honor, additional guests, the inclusion of a religious aspect of the celebration depending on tradition and planning, we have limousine options to fit different quinceañera budgets and styles!

Additionally, VIP Limousine has been invited to the Quinceañera Magazine Expo in Utah this Saturday! Check out the link below for more information and to see some of our vehicles in person.

Quinceañera Expo

Speaking of traditional celebrations, let’s talk about prom!

Prom, short for the term “promenade,” is also a coming-of-age celebration started in the United States in the 19th century. Initially, proms were held at colleges, but gradually shifted to high schools, which to this day mainly hold such events for the seniors. If there is a dance for the juniors, it’s often designated as “junior prom.” These events have also become more commonplace in Canada and the U.K., which due to U.S. cultural influences also refer to them as “prom.”

In other nations, the same or similar events are referred to as balls, not unlike in the fairytales. However, the traditions and style of dress remain very similar across national boundaries, including the attire and the naming of a prom king and queen.

Another tradition of a prom event? Renting a limousine! That’s where we come in with our fleet of limousines. When you call and book with us, you have the choice of the Lincoln Town Car, Cadillac Escalade, Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and Hummer H2. Let us help with your prom logistics by taking care of your transportation needs.

Our prom special is also continuing! Check out the details in the copy of our flier below. Mention it when you book to get our best pricing.

VIP Limousine 2016 Prom Promotion

What about birthdays? We do birthdays as well! Unlike quinceañeras and prom, the birthday is virtually universally celebrated all around the world. Even companies and organizations celebrate birthdays, though sometimes they will substitute the term “anniversary” instead. Regardless, we at VIP Limousine have had some fun ones ourselves!

On one particular occasion, we filled one of our limousines with pizzas and picked up the birthday girl and her friends as a surprise. They loved riding in our Hummer H2 and tailoring the celebration just how they wanted it. Not everybody will use a limousine to celebrate their birthday, but it’s one way to make it special, safe, and private.

What else can you use a limousine service for? Seeing as each of our stretched vehicles comes fully-equipped with a bar, they can also be used simply to go out on the town and have a great time. We can ensure you have fun while also keeping everybody safe on the roads. A private limousine ride is definitely less expensive and more fun than a DUI. More memorable? We’d rather not have to contest that.

The video and text above highlight only some of what we do at VIP Limousine, but as you can see, it’s quite a variety. We hadn’t even gotten to anniversaries, weddings, black car service, and corporate travel! Regardless of your transportation needs, we have the expertise, fleet, and service to cover it all.

Be sure to stay tuned to our blog for more updates!

Service Updates: March 17th, 2017

At VIP Limousine, we are committed to world-class limousine service and providing VIP treatment to everybody who sets foot in one of our vehicles.

Today we are announcing more upgrades to our service!

First, we are continuing to offer our prom special. This allows you to buy 5 hours in a limousine and get the 6th hour free.  You can also add even more hours to this time…there’s no set limit! For example, if you book on a Saturday from 12:00 PM – 10:30 PM, the hour from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM is free.

Second, we’ve made some improvements to the most traditional limousine in the fleet: our classic white Lincoln Town Car stretch. Lincoln may no longer make this vehicle, but that does not mean it has not stood the test of time as a classic and dependable limousine. We intend to keep it in our fleet as long as possible for our clients’ desires and needs, and it is still the standard for stretched transportation.
