The senior prom has to be one of the biggest events ever when you are nearing the end of your school days, and maybe apart from your exams obviously, it is one of the most important. After the prom everybody will be going their separate ways and you’re never going to see the teachers ever again really, and whether you love or hate school, the prom is the perfect way to say goodbye. And everybody knows that the prom means that you have to the best and most beautiful dress that you’ve ever had in your life, so it’s important that you get shopping in advance!
There are a few things to consider when you’re buying your prom dress. The first is a practical one; most boutiques and upmarket dress stores will keep a list of which girl has bought a dress for which school to avoid girls turning up in the same dress which would pretty much be nightmare! So if you’ve seen your dream dress in a boutique, get in there early! The next is whether or not your school has a dress code in place. In the UK we’re pretty lucky in that we don’t tend to have such strict rules in place as they do over in America, but do check just in case! The last thing is don’t be afraid to hit the online stores since there’s loads of choice even if you’re on a budget and a huge range of sizes too. If you are still searching for your perfect prom dress, check out these ones to help give you some ideas.
