Posted on: March 17th, 2017

Prom season is upon us. Dresses have gone up in store windows, the limos are getting booked, plans are being made and promposals are in full swing.
If you haven’t found yourself plunged into the craziness that is prom preparation, there is still time to dive in head first. If you have been avoiding it altogether, however, we have put together a checklist that will help you get through it all with ease, and create the prom of your dreams. No matter if you are ready to party, or ready to run and hide, prom is here.
Let’s get started.



Plan. Plan. Plan.

Prom is often associated with being the biggest event of your high school career. An event so big you will reminisce about it for years with friends, and embarrass your kids with the regalia in years to come. As with any event of this magnitude, planning is the first step to making it great.
Planning can be as simple as writing down ideas in notebook. If you need something more, however, using a website like Pinterest or WeHeartIt can help you to organize your thoughts visually, and maybe even find some amazing dress designs that you hadn’t even thought of before.


Grab Your Dream Date

Prom date
Even before you have started planning I am sure you have already been lost to daydreams of the perfect prom night, and the perfect person you want to spend it with. No matter who they be, don’t be afraid to take control and ask them – don’t let gender stereotypes and social norms stop you from creating the night you want.


Don Your Best Dress

Beyond planning, beyond your date, the most important thing in your prom planning adventure is what you will be wearing. No matter if it’s a dress or a tux, it’s going to take time to find the perfect one, order it, and even get the alterations done. Make sure you shop early so as to avoid any pitfalls, and risk being dress-less on the big day.


Let’s Coordinate!

Prom Party
Now that you have your dress, tux, date, and/or group, you are ready to dig in and fully plan. Prom is so much more that just the clothes after all, and this is when the fine details begin to fall into place. Get together with your prom party and start to plan out your dream evening, from limos to that new sushi place you’ve been eyeing for months. Don’t forget hair and make-up appointment either – it’s all important! Plus, you can hit some of the local schools for an appointment in the student salon, save some money and still look your best.

Now is the time to get it all together, and don’t forget to make your reservations!


Prep and Play!
