Prom season is officially on the horizon. Do you know what that means? It means that it's finally time to start planning for the most anticipated night of your high school experience. But planning the perfect prom takes a lot of effort, and we understand that it is no easy task.
From choosing elegant prom gown dresses (yes, you can have more than one!) to coordinating with friends, there’s so much to consider. So, to make your experience seamless and unforgettable, we've crafted the ultimate prom checklist. Bookmark this list now, and let the countdown to your unforgettable prom night begin!
Now, remember this isn't a one-size-fits-all list. Surprise expenses might still pop up. So, it’s best to consider a contingency fund for unexpected expenses or last-minute changes.
Now that you have a set budget, it’s time to find the dress that you have been envisioning since the start of high school. First step? Get inspiration!
Going to dress shops without having any idea of what you want is a fashion disaster waiting to happen. So, open up your laptop and start surfing through Pinterest for dress colors and designs. Decide: do you like black dresses or spring dresses, or is there something else that you like? You can also use #prom on Instagram for more inspiration.
Once you have a clear idea of what you want, it’s time to go shopping. But the question is - what is the right time to start shopping?
Ideally, you should start the shopping spree about two to four months in advance. Why? One reason is that most designers and stores introduce their new prom collections by December or January. And if you leave dress shopping to the last moment, your dream dress might already be sold out. Now, you don’t want that. Do you?
Also, make sure that you try on various prom gown dresses before you buy “the dress.” Sometimes, the dress you thought would look good on you doesn't. But that doesn't mean it is the end of the world.
You’ll soon realize that there are plenty of options out there, and all you need to do is be patient and keep searching; you'll ultimately find the dress that makes you feel like a prom queen.
Pro Tip: Just ensure you’re following the dress code (if your school has one) while choosing a dress.
