Help! How Can a Teenager Talk Their Parents into Getting a Limo for Prom Night?

As exciting as prom night is for a teenager, there are tons of important decisions that must be made before the big night. These decisions include everything from what you are going to wear to who you are going to go with and what form of transportation you are going to use to get there. To a teenager, few things seem more appealing than pulling up to the prom venue and stepping out of a limousine. The question is, how do you get your parents on board?

The key to getting your parents on board is to explain the four key benefits to using a limo service for prom night. If you just remember the word LIMO, you should have no trouble relaying the benefits to your parents.

L is for Limelight

Prom is a rite of passage for many teenagers. Making an entrance that you (and everyone else) will remember is a huge part of that. The last thing any teenager wants is to be dropped off at prom by his or her parents. Being dropped off by a limo is going to put you in the spotlight for a period of time.

I is for Including Your Friends

Taking a limo to prom can be fun because it is an easy way to include all of your friends. Depending on the size of the limo, you are going to be able to get anywhere from 6 to 15 people inside. If your parents are concerned about cost, just remember to include the fact that the cost can be split among everyone who is going. If you have four or five friends getting in the limo, the price is going to be significantly cheaper after it is split four or five ways.

M is for Mother and Father's Seal of Approval

A limo service picking you up and dropping you off from prom means you have a designated driver. Sending their baby off to prom night is something that can be scary for your parents. Utilizing a limo service may be just the extra sense of security your parents need.

O is for Organized

Utilizing a limo service can make prom night a lot less stressful for both you and your parents. Most limo services offer the option of booking a limo for several hours. During those several hours, you can use the limo to drive just about anywhere you want to go. Your plans can be as simple as going to and from prom or as complicated as taking you, your significant other, and your friends out to eat and to see several other attractions in addition to the prom. It is not uncommon for some teenagers to want to make prom night a night of getting out and exploring.

Utilizing a limo service eliminates a lot of the stress involved in prom night. Instead of worrying about how you are going to get your parents to drop you offer several blocks away from the school or how you are going to convince them to let your boyfriend or girlfriend drive, you just need to convince them that having a responsible and professional driver drive you to and from prom is a great idea. If you just remember the word LIMO, you shouldn't have any trouble relaying the benefits to your parents.
