Formal Prom Dresses 10 Tips on Preparing For Your Prom


Visitors: 337

Above all, the more preparation you put in place the easier it will be to prepare for your prom. Arrangements need to be made and orders need to be placed. So start preparing early to avoid disappointment and stress. We have listed 10 important tips that need to be considered when planning your event.

The British Weather

British weather is not always the most reliable and what starts out as being a beautiful clear night can soon end in heavy rain and wind. With this in mind it is better to be prepared. Although the weather forecast is not always brilliant it is a good idea to check this before leaving.

Hair and make up

Make your hair appointment as early as possible; the best hairdressers are the ones that will be booked up first. Try to get a hairdresser who does a pre night trial so you know exactly how your hair will look before the big night.

Beauty treatments

Start applying beauty treatments early to ensure that they have time to work to their fullest before the big night. Drink plenty of water as this is good for your skin and helps flush out impurities and it also makes you feel healthier. Moisturize your skin well especially the parts that will be on show.

The formal prom dress

Formal prom dresses can take time to order in. To avoid disappointment it is best to start your shopping the minute the prom date is announced, this will give you more choice and more time to decide on a style. There is nothing worst than making a compromise on this important part of the night.

Arriving in style

Every girl wants to arrive in style. So if your budget does not stretch to a limo or fancy car then ask your friends if they all want to chip in. The more people in the car, the better atmosphere and you will all be saving a lot of money. Ensure that the car company knows where you need to be picked up from and dropped off.


The date of the prom is very important for planning your appointments and it is good for keeping track of how long you have left. Organise a count down calendar with friends and make this in to a prom plan along with righting down appointments, the date to pick up your prom dress, and a list of what is left to do. These prom plans can be fun as well and you will feel the excitement as you watch the date get closer and closer knowing that every thing is in hand.

Survival kit

Write down a list of items you will need with you for the night. This list can include lippy, mobile phone, etc. An important item which shouldn’t be left out is a sewing kit; you need to be prepared for any little mishap during the night. Ensure that your mobile phone has the car company’s phone number saved in it in case you have any change of plans.


The weather forecast will depict on whether you need a coat or not. Taking a coat will not spoil the look of formal prom dresses and most prom events will arrange a cloak room. It is better to arrive glowing than soaking wet and cold. You will be thankful you brought one when the prom night is over and you are tried, waiting for the car to arrive.

Arrival times

Arriving fashionably late has gone out of fashion. Check your prom start time and arrange for your car to pick you up in plenty of time. Start preparing early in the day to save panic and rushing around with only 10 minutes to go. It will also give you time in the day to shop for any thing you feel is missing; it does happen so give yourself the option.


Allow yourself some extra money to take with you on the night. Your friends or your date might want to grab some food on the way home. Also some emergency money may come in handy if you need to catch a taxi or make a phone call.
