The Prom Tips They Don’t Tell You
May 25 2012
So prom is just around the corner – have you picked out your outfit? Bought your ticket? Booked the limo? Secured a date? Coordinated with your friends? Etc, etc., etc. There’s a lot to plan and it can be overwhelming, but your prom is a night that you will remember for the rest of your life… no pressure or anything.
I’m sure by now you may have read your fair share of prom 1-0-1 type articles, but this one’s a little different…seriously. The myBlueprint team has put together a few tips to ensure the little things that can (and often do) cause prom disasters don’t happen to you. We want you to make the most of your prom and experience a night full of life-long memories – worry, hassle and stress-free – just the way it should be.
- Wear comfortable shoes. There’s nothing like your feet hurting so much you can’t stand to ruin an evening. If you are wearing new shoes, wear them a few times with thick socks on to work them in. To keep them looking new, just wear them around the house and not outside. Boys, this one applies to you too! It’s not just high heels that are uncomfortable; a new pair of dress shoes can be just as bad. And girls, make room in that tiny clutch for some Band-Aids. Make sure they’re fabric (they stick to your feet better than plastic.)
- Book NOW. If you haven’t already, get going! Planning ahead is KEY – services like limos, salons, tux rentals, etc. will be booked before you know it during prom season.
- Bring a camera. Snap candid photos and leave the stiff-posed pics up to mom and dad. Memories do fade eventually so capturing the real experiences will help you and your friends look back and remember the real moments – and the stories and laughs that go along with them! The more people who bring camera, the more photos to reflect upon the next day, and 50+ years later.
- Avoid being a twin. If you get your outfit from a really popular store, chances are that someone else is going to be rocking the same look. Consider trying an independent, consignment or vintage store, checking out shops in another city (if you happen to visit one), or getting something custom made.
- Don’t let anything ruin your night. Chances are whatever may come up isn’t going to be a good enough reason down the road for ruining your prom. Make this your go-to philosophy for the night and stick to it!
