The perfect prom night can be a magical experience with your date or with your besties. However, that perfect experience can only come with a lot of planning and coordinating. Here are some things you can do to ensure that you have a perfect prom night.
Pick Your Look Ahead of Time
Unless you want to scramble to pick out leftover dresses at the mall a week before your prom, you should probably start browsing for ideas ahead of time. Give yourself an extra month or two to get your dress, just in case it takes a few weeks to ship your dress or in case you need alterations. You’ll also want to make sure you have the perfect makeup and hair for your special night. To get the best look, you’ll want to hire a professional makeup artist and hairstylist for the occasion. They’ll be able to make sure that you can get a glamorous look that will last all night long. To make sure you get the look you want, you can look up examples of hair and makeup online to show your hairstylist and makeup artist.
Go With Someone You Trust
If this is your first experience with prom, mingling with a school-wide student body can be a different experience than mingling with students from your own school year. It is important to have a trustworthy date or a friend group to watch out for each other. Some of the best moments of a prom are with your besties. Going with someone you trust means that you can plan an after-party together as well.
Say No to Alcohol
Saying no to alcohol may make you feel uncomfortable by being in the minority when many after-prom-parties focus on alcohol; however, there is a good reason to say no. Drinking alcohol puts your health and safety at risk. It is the cause of many vehicular accidents among teens. Nearly 50 percent of the fatal teen crashes in 2014 occurred between the hours of 3 p.m. and midnight. Try to get your group or date to agree to skip the alcohol so that everybody is on the same page.
Prom night is one of the most anticipated events in high school. For many, it is the first attempt to plan something exciting for a large group of people. In order to have the perfect prom night, be ready to have fun and start planning early.
