Have you been dreaming of going to prom looking like a princess ever since you were a little kid and you saw your older sister all dressed up and being picked up in a fancy limo, and now that it is your turn, you want everything to be perfect? Or are you a last-minute shopper and you are only going to prom because all of your best friends are going and you do not even know what you need to get or do, to go to prom? Well, whatever your story may be, there is a list of things that you need to do to ensure you have a safe and exciting prom experience even if similar to the second example, you dislike shopping and partying and you are just going there to spend time with your best friends. Not preparing for prom and not having a game plan can not only end up with you getting bored at prom but it can sometimes even lead to dangerous instances happening, as we all know about the terrible things some individuals do at prom such as spiking drinks with drugs. So read below to know what these things you need to consider are.
Shop according to the themeDoes your prom have a theme? All of you will definitely be required to be in formal wear, the girls are usually asked to wear dresses whereas the boys will be in suits. But most proms also have an exciting theme. So for example, if your prom has a more relaxed theme, you do not need to be arriving there in a massive ball gown and end up feeling uncomfortable all night. You and your friends can instead opt to buy Shona Joy dresses that are both casual and formal but still elegant and look great in photos.
But if your prom theme is extravagant, you can choose to buy Alex Perry dresses from his latest clothing collection and matching glittery and glitzy shoes and party the night away in style just like you have always imagined prom to be like. If you have always had a dream dress design that you have been wanting to rock at your prom but you cannot seem to find the style, size or colour that you are looking for in any of your local stores or boutiques, you can choose to look online as online stores usually have a much larger collection as well as different sizes.
Plan your transportHave you and your friends hired a limousine to take all of you to and from prom or will your parents be driving you? You may have heard of the horror stories that some people have of their prom experiences and to make sure you avoid things like that, you must decide how you will be getting back home after the party as well, will you be driving with your best friends and have all of you decided to stay the night at a friend’s house or will you be driving yourself home? It is also advisable to not leave your drinks unattended and to not take drinks from people you do not trust or know too well.
