Prom night! It’s the night you’ve been dreaming of since you first started high school and the expectations for the evening could not be higher. There is lots to think about from picking the perfect dress to finding that special someone to spend the evening with. So, it’s fair to say that you have a lot on your plate. Don’t worry; I’ve got your back with this simple guide to planning the perfect prom night.
Go Dress Shopping Early
Ideally, you should start shopping for your prom dress early. If you hit the shops a few months before the big event, you will have your pick of the royal blue prom dresses that will compliment your skin, so that you can choose the one that is most perfect for you. Whereas, if you leave it to the last moment, you’ll be fighting it out with all the other girls who have your complexion! Don’t wait until the racks are bare, start shopping now!
Pick the Perfect Shoes
When you’ve finally found the perfect shoes, you will want to choose the perfect shoes to match. When it comes to prom shoes, you can choose to go glam or sophisticated. If you really want to stand out from the crowd, glam shoes, which may be glittery, bejeweled or even studded, are a must! If you want to play it classy and understated, stick to simple, plain heels that either match or compliment your dress and make for a classic look.
If, however, you value comfort above all else, do not be afraid to break with tradition and go for a pretty pair of ballet flats, or if you’re really daring, team your prom dress with a pair of converse for a really rebellious look!
Hit Up Pinterest

Who’s Going with Who?
If you’re a traditional group of friends, it is likely you’ll be waiting for the boys to make moves and ask you, but if you want to avoid hurt feelings and falling outs, it is might be a good idea to have a conversation about who you’re hoping to go with, who’s off-limits and who it is safe to accept an offer from. Of course, you could all break with tradition and ask your boy of choice if he would like to be your date for the evening. That way, you can have that particular problem all sewn up as soon as you like.
