6 Tips to Having the Best Prom of Your Life

Prom is one of the most anticipated and significant events that take place over the course of a young woman’s high school experience. From finding the perfect dress to knowing which date or group of friends to spend the evening with, decisions about prom night are many, and with a few exceptions, most of them feel extremely important

If you’re already making plans in anticipation of that magical night, here are six tips that will help ensure you have the time of your life at prom.

1. Be Comfortable

For most teens, prom night doesn’t begin at the dance. There are usually plenty of pictures that need to be taken by multiple households, and a dining experience or pre-prom party to enjoy before you ever head over to the venue. Because of these realities, prom night can last a surprisingly long time, which means you need to consider your comfort level across many hours and activities.

Choose one of the 2015 prom dresses that allow for easy sitting, eating, dancing, and walking, and above all, make sure your shoes are up to the task of comfortably carrying you from early evening until the wee hours of the morning. Wear your hair in a style that can go the distance, too, since the last thing you want to be doing during your favorite song is fussing with bobby pins in the bathroom.

2. Plan Ahead

Making sure your plans are set before the big day will help you relax as prom night draws near. Jot down a list of all the activities you’ll be doing and all the specialty purchases you need to make, and go about making reservations, buying tickets, finding your dress, and securing a spot at your favorite salon. Because so many other teenagers will be doing the same thing around the same time, consider getting everything finished, purchased, and reserved a month ahead of time.

3. Don’t Stress Out About Finding a Date

If you don’t have anyone you’re currently dating, don’t stress out about finding the perfect date. Instead, get together with a group of your best girlfriends or boyfriends and make a plan to spend the evening together. Not only will you feel relieved about asking someone or being asked, but you’re also more likely to have a memorable prom.

Too often, perfect strangers decide to spend this important event together and find they have little to talk about, which can make for an awkward and dull affair. Avoid that trap by hanging out with the people with whom you already love to spend your time.

4. Bring a Clutch — and Pack it Well

Leave your massive boho bag at home, but do bring along a classy and tasteful clutch. Not only will it complement your dress and shoes nicely, but its contents may also come in handy. Pack the following just in case:

  • A tampon
  • Lipstick
  • Cash
  • Your mom’s credit card
  • Cell phone
  • Gum or breath mints
  • Kleenex

5. Get Ready to Dance

Whether you consider yourself a good dancer or not, you’ll have the most fun if you decide to dance as much as possible. If you’ve never taken to the dance floor before, consider taking classes, or just start practicing at home in your bedroom a few months ahead of time until you feel like yourself when music is playing and your body is moving.

While it can be tempting to believe that prom is little more than an elaborate photo shoot, its central charm lies in your ability to let loose and enjoy yourself in a fun atmosphere with your classmates. Don’t miss out!

6. Prepare Yourself for Peer Pressure

By now, you’ve come across many forms of peer pressure, and you probably know yourself relatively well in the face of it. Regardless of your personal beliefs and practices on issues like underage drinking, drug use, sex, and the like, take some time to consider what you want the night to be like, so no one else can influence you beyond your true comfort level. Prom night may feel like the most important evening of your life, but you have many, many more exciting nights ahead of you. Whatever you decide, choose to be safe, and remember your future. Don’t get into a vehicle with anyone who has been using any substances, and if at any time you feel unsafe or uncomfortable, ditch your manners. Use your voice, and get yourself to safety.

Prom night is one of the most exciting events in a young woman’s life, and preparing for it should be fun, too. Follow these six tips, and you’ll be able to look back on it all with a happiness that will last your whole life.
