Every year there is a new crop of high school seniors gearing up to go to prom. If this is your first prom, you might not know what to expect. Don’t worry, because we are here to help. From picking out your prom dress to how to ditch a bad prom date, these are 15 tips every girl should know before prom.
The first thing girls need to check off their prom checklist is finding the right dress. The sooner you get this done, the better. Many stores mark which dress has already been selected by your classmates, and they don’t sell the same dress to the same prom. That means the earlier you start, the better your chances of finding the perfect dress before anyone else.
Yes, the dress is important, but so is your date! Whether you are going with someone you’ve seen for a while or a new person, you need to be prepared. Dates don’t always go as expected, and prom is no different! If you have issues with your date, you should come up with an exit strategy. You should also encourage your friends to do the same. Be sure to have each others’ backs should anything happen, and consult with an adult if things get out of hand!
At the end of the day, the most important thing to remember is to have fun! Senior prom only happens once in your life, so don’t take it too seriously.
