While navy blue has been a timeless and classic choice for weddings, a slightly lighter blue has been taking the stage lately. Royal blue is in right now, it gives off a younger vibe, however it is still elegant with plenty of color pairing options. From yellows to light pinks and purples, cream, or even a light grey, this suit color is very versatile. Pair with tan or brown shoes, you can go gold or silver on accessories too.

Airport Traveling Tips

Posted On: July 26, 2018


Whether flying is a rarity or a regular occurrence for you, these tips will help you stay comfortable on your next flight and visit to the airport.

Avoid Jet Lag:

Drinking plenty of water and starting your trip well rested helps avoid jet lag. Try getting some sleep during your flight and alternate with walking around to prevent a lack of circulation. Getting at least 8 hours of sleep before arriving at the airport is going to be your first defense against jet lag. Staying hydrated is extremely important, the average air cabin contains 10-20 percent humidity, while the average indoor humidity is 30-65 percent, according to Everyday Health. Lower levels of humidity can cause dehydration, making you feel tired and run down, beat this by drinking at least 8 ounces of water per hour during the flight. Sitting for long periods of time isn’t the best for your body, make sure you stretch your legs and get yourself moving every couple of hours to improve circulation and regulate blood pressure. While jet lag can’t be avoided completely, these small acts can make your trip more enjoyable by lessening its effects.

Eating Well:

Sticking to a healthy lifestyle while traveling can be a challenge, however doing so will make your body feel much better. Choosing healthier options at restaurants and convenience stores and even packing some of your own snacks can keep you on track and energized. The TSA approves granola bars, crackers, whole fruits and berries as well as dried fruits and cereals for carry-on bags. Even hummus and dips if they are less than 3.4 ounces. Major airports are known to have many restaurants at each terminal, which gives you variety, however they are usually catered to be fast and not the healthiest. Try focusing on menu options that are higher in protein and lower in carbs and fat. Most places will offer grilled instead of fried chicken and multigrain or whole wheat instead of white breads. Oatmeal and egg white wraps are a great choice for an on-the-go breakfast. Most airlines will offer free snacks that are usually high in sugar, salt and carbs. Skip these snacks and opt for a healthier choice such as a protein bar, fruit salad or unsalted nuts. Making sure your body has the nutrients it needs to function properly will leave you feeling ready to start your day after landing.

Avoid Getting Sick:

Nothing ruins a trip more than catching a virus or a cold, taking these precautions will help prevent getting sick so you can make the most of your time away. You may have heard this before but we are saying it again, stay away from the tap water. The Wall Street Journal conducted a study of 14 different international and domestic flight’s water, their results revealed traces of Salmonella and tiny insect eggs. Make sure you’re drinking bottled water on board, ice cubes, coffee and tea should also be avoided as well as the water in the restrooms, use hand sanitizer instead and wait until you land to brush your teeth! Unless you are boarding the first flight of the day most airlines will have already used blankets and pillows, it is best to bring your own. Before touching your seatbelt and tray tables make sure you use sanitizing wipes and avoid eating directly off it. Scientists have found sitting in the aisle seat puts you closer to passengers walking to and from the restroom, putting you more at risk of being exposed to germs. People have a tendency of touching or holding onto the aisle seats as they walk up and down, allowing germs to spread. Using the air vent above your seat to capture up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses in the cabin air filter, using a saline nasal spray and making sure you keep all personal items close and avoid the back-seat pocket will prevent picking up excess bacteria.

Stay safe and enjoy your next flight!

What Sets Us Apart

Posted On: July 19, 2018


At All Star Limousine we get asked a lot what’s the difference between us and a company like Uber, the short answer is a lot. Uber and Lyft are ride-hailing services, like a taxi, the proper term is black car service, All Star Limousine is a transportation company that offers executive car service. The specific differences are in the service, the vehicle and the chauffeur.

We hire and train chauffeurs. Many people mistake drivers for chauffeurs, not realizing that there are distinct differences and the titles should not be interchangeable. For example, drivers that are hired for a ride hailing service like Uber or Lyft are required to have a valid driver’s license and be over 21 years of age. Whereas much more is required of chauffeurs. Not only do they specialize in customer service and strive to go above and beyond with each ride, they are also TLC/CDL licensed and trained in driver safety precautions. Our chauffeurs go through a screening process for background checks through driver’s license, social security and state finger prints as well as a full health physical and Drug and Alcohol screening before they are even allowed to step foot in any of our vehicles. Each of our hires are carefully selected through face-to-face interviews, we make sure full physicals are maintained yearly and random drug and alcohol testing occurs during their employment. Our chauffeurs report to a higher authority and are accountable for their actions; therefore they work hard to maintain quality service. When you are getting into an All-Star vehicle, you can expect the best every time.

We understand the importance of maintenance, safety, comfort and style when traveling. We look after each vehicle in our fleet to make sure all mechanical work and registrations are up to date to minimize the chances of breakdowns. We always have a backup plan in place, since we do realize, some things cannot be avoided, as we are dealing with mechanics. With All Star you will always arrive in style and in a timely manner. Companies like Uber do not require their drivers to maintain their vehicles, which puts travelers at risk of running late due to mechanical failure. All Star is aware that a chauffeur’s tardiness will unfairly reflect onto the passengers’ schedule and we do everything we can to arrive at least 15 minutes before scheduled pick up times.

A chauffeur is capable of much more than just car service. Our transportation services are not limited to corporate and airport travel, we specialize in events such as weddings, bachelor/bachelorette parties, birthdays, wine tours, business meetings and other special
Whether you need a sedan, or a 46-passenger party bus, our chauffeurs are readily available and committed to serving you.

Wedding Day Tips: Photography

Posted On: May 25, 2018



  • Don’t Forget to Freshen Your Makeup

It can be easy to forget about staying matte, reapplying lipstick, checking your highlight, contour and making sure your cheeks are blushed when you are busy thanking and kissing everyone in the receiving line after the ceremony! Before you move on to take pictures before cocktail hour, take a few minutes to freshen up so you can look your best in those special shots!


  • Pick Your Best Angle

Taking pictures while standing straight towards the camera doesn’t make for the best shot. While most photographers will help place you for pictures it is good to understand what angle you look best in. Practicing before the big day means you won’t be over thinking it, standing at an angle while tilting your chin slightly is often the most flattering. Try looking in the mirror and take some selfies to find out how you feel most comfortable.


  • Focus on Posture

Of course, you want your posture to be perfect in all your photos, however it is especially important to remember while sitting. Be sure to sit up straight and cross your legs at the ankles.


  • Hold Your Bouquet Properly

Holding your bouquet right in front of you at about waist level with your arms right in front of you can make you look bigger in photos. Having your arms held out from your hips a bit will look much better. For a more relaxed picture, holding it loosely with one hand and the other hanging naturally by your side is another great option. Remember, small details can make a big difference!


  • Smile!

With all the excitement of the happiest day of your life you would be surprised how easy it is to forget to smile, especially if you are nervous about making sure everything is perfect. Just remember you look beautiful and your smile will be your best accessory.


  • Relax and Be Yourself

Thinking too much about how you are posing can translate into your photos. Just remember to relax, breathe, and be yourself, it will make for the most natural reflection of you and your relationship.
