Make a grand entrance on prom night with these tips

Prom night couple

The prom night is a great time for girls to really go to town and adorn a stunning gown with all the accessories. If you’re looking to turn heads when you arrive, there’s a lot to consider.

Here are a few tips to ensure that everyone notices your arrival on prom night:

Pro hairstyle and makeup

Why not have a professional touch with your makeup? Talk to your hairstylist about a classic up-do and look at a few images.

After receiving the gown, you can build your look around that. You’ll be confident on the big night with a few dress rehearsals.

Great prom theme

Create an ambiance that will be memorable for years to come by choosing one of the most popular prom themes. Among the top choices are a red carpet design, winter wonderland, and enchanted garden.

Of course, ensure your outfit coordinates well with the event colors and theme. Next, figure out how to get to the celebration in style. A limo is one idea.

Rent a limo for prom night

If you want a really spectacular entrance, roll up in a white limo with a chauffeur to open the door. Make a movie star entrance as you step out of the vehicle, have all your friends take pics, and post them on Instagram.

You will know how the Hollywood film star feels as she heads for the Oscar Awards. Maybe you will even borrow mom’s diamond jewelry for this one-off event. Imagine you are off to a charity ball or to the premiere of your latest movie.

Complement your partner

Whoever you choose to be your date, try to create a look that matches one another. For example, you could go for a 1920s look, with you in a mermaid dress and him wearing a tweed 3-piece suit.

Or, maybe you match in the same color outfits. That’s probably the easiest way to coordinate your looks, all while making a dynamic first appearance at the event!

Prepare your arrival at the prom night venue

Find the ideal place to step out of the car and see how the lighting is and ask your friends to meet you there. Or, better yet, take them with you on a prom party bus, and the fun starts as soon as you leave home.

Of course, if you want to create even more impact on your arrival, arrive a few minutes late so everyone is already there. Get out of the vehicle and turn heads with your confident walk.

Have a dress rehearsal

Try out your shoes, jewelry, accessories, and hairdo during this practice session. Take a few selfies, too, as a keepsake.

Once that’s done, walk around for a while, do a few twirls, and start feeling more comfortable. It might not sound important, but a dress rehearsal can boost self-confidence when attending such an important event.

Go for a designer dress

Of course, you shouldn’t forget about what you wear. The ultimate in style and elegance would be a designer dress, and if you want to see fishtail prom dresses, search for the online designer dress boutique.

You’ll find a beautiful gown to be the center of attraction. Choose a color that complements your skin tone, hair color, and makeup. Then, spend time choosing the accessories to be ready for a spectacular entrance.

Sourcing a designer dress for prom night

You may already have a style in mind or are open to ideas. It is important to choose a dress style that complements your shape. Luckily, there are wonderful online designer dress boutiques to conveniently find a great dress online, rather than spending a lot of time going from store to store.

Simply search Google to find a leading online boutique, and once on their website, you can search by designer, style, or price in the desired size. If you want a recommendation, the prom dresses from Sherri Hill have some of the best size and color choices online.

When placing a dress order online, leave enough time to have the dress altered by a local seamstress. Also, allow time for the package to arrive, and take to the tailor for alterations. You’re going to be fabulous in time for the day of the prom!

  1. Great advice, Christy and I hope the proms can go ahead next year here in the U.K. Instead of hiring a limo my son and his friends went in a classic car … but a small one and a bit of a squeeze for the tall guys! But they had a lot of fun and good photo opportunities!
