Girls, these next few months will go quickly and it is not too early to start planning for prom. Be apart of the plans and make sure you know what you will be doing before, during, and after the prom. Follow these prom tips for girls and enjoy the event:
Be considerate toward the guy if you get asked to the prom, remember he is probably nervous even asking you. Even if you don’t have a date, plan to go anyway! Lots of girls and guys go solo, or in big groups of friends. You really don’t need a date to have fun and you won’t be the only solo one there. Don’t miss out on these special events, go out with your friends, dance the night away, and have a blast!
Prom tickets can be expensive depending on the venue, so if you can, it is a nice gesture to offer to chip in for the cost of the tickets.
Start dress shopping at least two months in advance. Find the right dress for you! Wear a dress that you will feel comfortable dining and dancing in for several hours. Buy a dress that suits your body type.
Hair styles are more casual this year, but it is really up to you because there are very few rules. Work with the hair style and length that you have! If you are doing your own hair, make-up, and nails then experiment ahead of time to choose the best look. Make appointments for hair, make-up, and nails about six weeks in advance. Salons appointments fill up quickly and you don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute.
Comfortable shoes that you can walk and dance in are a must! Break your shoes in by wearing them around the house for a couple of weeks before the event. Jewelry is important! We all love bling, but try to choose one area to focus on. If you have a big, beautiful necklace, then go easy on the earrings and bracelets. Have fun with your jewelry and give yourself some extra sparkle. Carry a small purse that coordinates with the style and color of your dress. It will come in handy for touching up makeup, your cell phone, and a little extra cash.
It is customary for the girl to buy the guy a boutonniere to pin on his lapel. Coordinate the boutonniere with your dress color. Order it at least two weeks in advance.
