Prom is one of the most important and memorable days of your young life. It’s the moment you and your friends have been looking forward to since the first day of senior year. However, the build up to the big day can be stressful because finding the right dress, the right guy, a hairstyle that slays, etc. is a lot of work. The important thing is to start early. That way you can be well prepared and stress free. Below are four reasons it’s important to be an early bird with prom preparation.

The Dress | Finding a dress is the most important thing when it comes to the prom checklist. If you’re able to get that part done early, you’ll be doing yourself a huge favor and will save yourself from tons of stress. You’ll also have time to spare in case you need alterations.

The Guy| Securing your date early is another vital key. You want to get him before anyone else does. There’s nothing wrong with asking a guy to prom (or going with your girl squad)!

The Makeup | It’s important that you get a makeup consultation before committing to a look. Getting this done early allows you time to be able to determine your look based on your dress and whatever is trending.

The Ride| This is the most difficult thing to plan, especially when you’re coordinating with a lot of people. Starting early will give everyone plenty of time to get their plans together and pitch in their share for the limo!

Prom Crunch?

Prom season brings excitement but it can also drag its annoying friend stress along, especially when you wait until the last minute to hit the racks! Before you go in full on panic mode, check a few tips to keep your vibes chill during your last minute search!

Body Type- Work your body, move your body! Okay, well you’re around yourself enough to know your body type and how clothes fit especially when it comes to the dance floor. Pick something that’s flattering as well as comfortable when you pick your all-star dress.


Crew Love- Time to ring up the crew and bring in their votes. You should always have the ultimate vote of what you wear but sometimes it helps to filter out bad options when your girls chime in.


Tailor, Gang!- We all deserved tailored clothes, right? Absolutely! Don’t be afraid of alterations or feel like only 40 year old businesswomen get it done to their suits. Alterations are great to get the perfect fit to an off the rack dress!
