Just like every other party-loving girl, I can remember my prom like it was yesterday. It was actually a good few years ago, but I can still remember how much fun I had choosing my dress, riding in a limo, and dancing with my friends.
Prom might not be coming around for a few months, but even so, it’s worth starting to plan as early as possible. Going to prom is a big deal, so planning for it in advance is important, especially if you want to ride in a limo, limos get booked up super quickly.

To ensure that you have an awesome time at prom, I have put together some tips below, that you may find useful.
Decide who you are going with
Talk to your friends and discuss whether you are going to go as a group, or whether you are going to go with dates. If some of your friends already have boyfriends or dates, and some don’t, perhaps you could consider going as a mixed group?
It’s important to work out who you are going to prom with so that you can get everything organized. You can’t book your transport or plan your evening if you don’t know who you are going with, so getting this sorted is important.
Book your transport
Once you know who you are going to the prom with, the next thing that you need to do is book your transport. If you want to book a prom limo, it’s important that you book in advance, as they tend to get booked out quite quickly.
Of course, as well as the traditional limos for getting to prom in, there are lots of other transport options to consider. You could opt to hire out a party bus and get to prom that way, you could go in a tractor, or you could simply get dropped off by your mom. How you get to prom is up to you, but if you are hiring a vehicle, it’s important that you book it early.
Choose a dress that’s unusual
Unless you want to walk into your prom and see five other girls wearing the same dress as you, don’t make the mistake of buying from a popular store. Yes, you want to choose a dress that is stylishly designed, but you don’t want to end up with the same dress as lots of other girls.
Your best bet is to shop at independent stores, as these tend only to have one of each dress design. Or, failing that, have a look online and buy your dress second-hand. You might want a brand new dress, but if you want something that is unique, buying your dress second-hand is perfect. Plus, if it’s in good condition, no one will know anyway, so what’s the problem?
Perfect your hair and makeup
Spend the next few months practicing different hairstyles and makeup styles so that you can perfect them for the big day. If you are a little stuck for ideas, have a look online for tutorials, and you should find lots of ideas for your hair and makeup.
Going to prom is a big deal, so it’s important that you prepare properly, so that everything is perfect for the big day.
