Prom Season Preparations
Spring is almost here and that means one thing to many late-highschoolers: prom season! As the first formal event for many teens, prom is extremely exciting – the planning as much as the event itself. There are many things you can wait until last minute to do, like getting your nails done or even finding a date. But some preparations are better made way far in advance.
Finding a Dress
For girls, finding the perfect dress can make or break the night. But remember, you’re only going to wear this dress once in your life, so you don’t really want to break the bank. To ensure you’re going to look completely unique and not regret what you spend, consider going to a thrift store or thread exchange. You’ll be able to find gorgeous – maybe even vintage – dresses at bargain prices that no one else will have.
Organizing a Ride
The old standard of going to prom in a limousine has transformed. So many students are deciding that they want to take different forms of transportation so that they can ride with all their friends and enjoy the journey. Perfect for these occasions are party buses and charter buses – they hold more people and when everyone pitches in it ends up being pretty cheap. Be sure to at least get your charter bus quote far enough in advance to make sure everyone can afford it and to decide who you’ll be riding with.
Planning the Weekend
Many teenagers like to spend the weekend after prom together to stretch the event out as long as possible. If your crew plans on doing this, make the arrangements early so that you don’t have too much on your plate when the dance inches nearer. Whether you’re renting a cabin in the mountains or taking a weekend vacation to the beach, book your reservations to get the down payments – and the worry – out of the way.
