Your prom dress

Obviously! Start shopping a few months out so there’s time to find the one. Read our tips for what to expect while prom dress shopping!


Stilettos, wedges, glitter sneaks…prom shoes mean fancy feet.


Outside: Shiny. Inside: Wallet, phone, keys, lip gloss, mints, compact mirror.


If you need them to get in, tuck these in your handbag, too.


Pick out a choker, bracelet, and earrings that complement your dress.


Do a trial run of your prom makeup (we are loving a bold glitter lip) and take a test selfie under different types of lighting.


Get your prom hair done in a button-down top or robe so you can get dressed later without pulling anything over your head. (Looking for some prom hairstyle inspo? Follow our steps for an easy DIY ‘do)


Gather friends for a mani-and-planning session at home or the salon.


Count heads and book tables a few weeks in advance.


Who’s driving? How many? Need a limo reservation?


Order boutonnieres or corsages from your local florist.
