Make Your Grand March Sparkle!

Grand March Kit A Grand March is a traditional prom event in which the prom court and prom attendees put on a parade. One part coronation, one part fashion show, it’s a tradition parents really love. Some schools choose to use the Grand March as an opportunity to announce their Prom King and Queen too. Either way, the Grand March is a good way to show off all the work students put into planning the prom, their outfits, hair, and flowers. Plus, it’s a way to say thanks to the parents and faculty who made prom possible for both the prom committee and the students attending the prom.

Your Grand March can look just as elegant as your prom and with these tips, it doesn’t have to cost a ton of money or take a lot of time to plan.

Advertise for your Grand March with personalized Grand March Banners. The banners are printed on heavy-duty, weather-resistant vinyl and are available with or without metal grommets and in seven different sizes to meet your needs. You can add your own custom wording so everyone knows when and where the Grand March will be. If you’re charging admission, be sure to include ticket information too!

Order the matching Grand March Tickets. You can choose to give a pair of tickets to each student with the purchase of a prom ticket, so their parents can see them in the march, or restrict free tickets to the parents of those on the Prom Court. Either way, tickets are a good thing to have on hand so you can keep track of how many people attended for future reference and crowd control.

Decorate for your Grand March starting with a Grand March Kit featuring the Grand March Star Arch, which can be personalized with your school letters. Use Three-Color Balloon Arches in your school or prom colors for students to walk through on their way down the aisle. Top it all off with the Grand March Banners personalized with your school information. The complete package makes for a sophisticated and coordinated Grand March look!

Tips for Planning the Grand March:

Not all students will want to participate. For this reason, it may be better to have the Grand March before the dance starts. If you choose this option, have your Prom Court march down together and save the big announcement for during the dance.

Take names of students who want to participate in the Grand March when you sell tickets to the prom, but also include a deadline for signing up in case students change their minds.

You can hand out tickets to the Grand March with prom tickets or send them to the parents at their home address(es). If you hand them out with prom tickets, be sure to get the tickets back from students who back out of the Grand March so your expected number in attendance at the march is accurate.
