Don’t miss Prom Advice and Tips
Part of the fun and excitement of prom night, other than dressing up and having a great time with your friends and date, is planning for it. And if you want to make sure that you won’t be stressed out on this particular night or right before prom day, here are six things that you should do months before prom:
1. Start looking for your dress as soon as possible.
If ever there’s one step in planning for prom that needs your attention right away (and not procrastinating), then this would be it! You can never start early enough when shopping for your ideal prom dresses since different stores offer tons of choices during their prom dress sales or discounts, especially older ones that have been used previously on previous formal occasions.
So if you start looking for your prom dress as soon as possible, you’ll have more options and will benefit from better prices. And since it’s also one of your most significant expenses (if not THE biggest) for this particular night, the sooner you find the perfect dress before everyone else does, the better!
2.Start planning what you’re going to do on prom night itself
This is something that needs to be part of your early planning since there are things that need to be done (and booked) such as transport (including cabs and limos), dinner reservations (in case you choose a fine dining restaurant or buffet), and hotel accommodations if you want to stay overnight. You can’t just drop by venues without having any prior bookings.
3. Start planning your overnight stay if you’re going to a suburb or a hotel.
Hopefully, the location of your prom celebration is not too far from home since it can be very tiring and inconvenient to travel that much during this special night. So once you know where the venue/s will be, start looking for budget-friendly hotels nearby so that after spending the whole day together with friends and classmates, you’ll have somewhere to rest!
Besides, it’s always lovely to spend time together in one room even if everyone is dropping by after their prom celebration. And trust me on this – they’ll most likely go home early so they could get a good night’s sleep before prom itself.
These are just some of the things that you should be doing months before prom. You may do a lot more on top of these six, but these alone are more than enough.
4. Start planning your dinner reservation as early as possible.
If you want to dine at a fine dining restaurant or buffet, then make sure that it’s one of the first places you visit when hunting for dresses! You don’t want to go to these popular venues on prom night itself because they’ll be filled with other couples and have long waiting lines since everyone is going there – not just for prom, but also for dinner beforehand. Plus, they’ll most likely have their prom packages which include dinner and overnight stay, so if you haven’t found a budget-friendly hotel yet, then this may be an option for you to consider.
5. Start planning your transportation as early as possible.
If you have prom in the suburbs or at a far-flung venue, it’s best if you can book transport (cabs and limousines) as soon as possible to ensure that you’ll get there without any difficulty. You don’t want to miss out on your dinner reservation because of traffic, do you?
Also, make sure that they’re available on prom night itself, especially later in the evening when people are getting away from their celebrations. And finally, make sure that everyone has enough cash with them since cab drivers won’t accept credit card payments during prom.
6 . Start planning your after-prom activities as early as possible.
If you’re not having an overnight stay, it should be okay to start looking for budget accommodations, especially if you know that the prom venue is far from home. You can choose budget hotels or motels, which often have affordable rates on weekends, plus they also offer prom packages during peak seasons.
But if you want something more upscale, why not check out cruise deals since some of them include all-inclusive prom packages? Cruise deals are top-rated during special occasions because of their affordability and convenience!
Besides, some cruises give houseboats away free with bookings! This is one way to end prom night on a high note! And if you book a cruise deal, then don’t forget to anticipate having formal photos taken since most of them come with free photoshoots too.
So there you have it – just some of the things that you should do as soon as prom season starts so that your special night will be extraordinary.
