Planning a Prom to Remember: Our Quick Guide

For a lot of young school leavers, prom night is one of the biggest events in their calendar and for those who have the task of planning; it can seem like an incredibly daunting task. Getting ahead with planning is important to make sure that your requirements are met but don’t forget that it’s important to have fun too.


Find the perfect outfit

There are very few times in your life that you get the opportunity to dress up in glitz and glam. For girls, the best approach is to aim to find your perfect dress roughly six weeks before prom night as many formal gowns and dresses will require some form of alteration for it to fit you perfectly. If you’re stuck for inspiration, check out the latest trends and see what will be available in stores. No matter what you’re looking for, be open-minded, it’s unlikely that you’ll find an outfit that matches exactly what you have in your head. If you’re thrifty with a sewing machine, you could even alter your chosen dress to make it even more unique.


Choose the perfect date

Finding a prom date may not be high on the list for some people, but those who are looking for someone to go with should remember to approach it in the right way. Once you’ve decided on who you want to accompany you, be thoughtful about how you ask them. This doesn’t mean you have to pull out all the stops but remember to make them feel important. Another tip is to ask early, this way you’ll be able to organise better and maybe even coordinate your outfits. Remember that prom isn’t about who you turn up with, but who you spend your night with and it’s usually more common that people will go with a group of their friends. Prom will be the last time you’ll be together as a whole class and you’ll have more fun, and feel more relaxed, if you focus on the experience as a whole.
