Prom is one of the most anticipated events of the school year. Choosing a theme, finding a date, and choosing the perfect outfit is only the beginning. The rest involves the memories you’ll make – memories that will last a lifetime. Here’s what you need to know about making your prom a night to always remember:
Find the Perfect Outfit
You’ll be looking back at prom pictures for years to come, so make sure you have an outfit that rises to the occasion. On the other hand, you’re going to be on your feet and dancing all night, so your footwear should be comfortable and stylish. Look around and weigh your options before settling on the perfect outfit. Tuxedos and suits are always a classic choice for boys; consider coordinating your vest and accessories with your date’s dress. For girls, shorter dresses make a personal statement, while floor length versions are more formal. Choose something that will make you feel good and keep you comfortable all night.
Decide How You’ll Get There
Part of the fun of prom is the arrival, right? You have several options when it comes to transportation –renting a limousine is a classic choice and for good reason. How many opportunities will you have to do it again? If you pitch in with a group of friends, you’ll find that the ride is much more affordable. To make the experience more luxurious, consider finding a limo that comes with food, beverages, and music.
If limos aren’t your style, consider renting a classic car. Keep in mind that this will require some help from your parents, so ask them for help organizing it. The sky’s the limit when it comes to car rental – choose something that reflects your personality.
Think About the After Party
The dance itself is part of the fun, but the rest happens after the school doors close. Gather your friends and talk about what to do when the prom ends. Most dances end early at night, and who wants to go home after being so excited from the festivities! Consider going back to a friend’s house, doing some midnight bowling, or taking in a late dinner. Take this time to talk about all the great memories you made.
Choose the Perfect Date
Your prom will only be as good as the company you keep. Find a date who makes you laugh, someone you can feel comfortable with, and someone who appreciates you just as you are. This could be a romantic interest, a friend, or even a group of friends – just make sure that you’re surrounded by people who will make sure you have a good time.
Prom is a night for making memories. By choosing the perfect outfit, after party activities, transportation, and date, you can help maximize the fun of your experience and keep your friends talking about it long after the night is over. The little details all add up to make your prom a night to truly remember. We hope you’ll follow these tips and have fun on your special evening!
