Guides to Remove Pressures When Preparing for Prom

11

Promenade is one of the most influential events during high school. Whether you love or hate to go, peer pressure is strongest during this stage. Your friends will keep repeating the invitation to you which you will end up saying yes. There may be reasons why you hate going to prom, one of which you might be thinking would be expenses, as well as, some other hassle preparations. Clear your mind from all those worries, stay relaxed and just think, you will be the queen of the night.

Here are some ways to have a comfortable, luxurious and fun preparation for the upcoming prom:

Dress: You might not be used to wearing a dress meanwhile you can ask your friends for help. You can go with them during store visitations or even do online shopping. You also have the option to ask your mom to choose the best prom dress that would fit you well. After all, mother knows best for her princess. She’d do everything to find the perfect dress for you even if it takes months before the prom date.

Accessories (Shoes, Jewelry, Handbag/Clutch): If you are someone, not fond of shopping around, you can check the internet for some possibilities. There will be a lot of choices that should go well with your glamorous prom dress. Meanwhile if online shopping seems not convenient for you, it may be about time for you to go around, hang out with your friends and go from one store to another to try on some options. For your shoes, wearing small heeled shoes will be more relaxed. You can walk around with it. If you are wearing a long prom dress, you can choose a universal colored shoe, as nobody will notice it. These colors will include black, white and even silver. Meanwhile since you will be attending the prom with a handbag or clutch, you can wear shoes that would match.

Beautification (Hair/Makeup/Nails): This should not be a problem these days with the advancements in technology. You can search for the trending hairstyles that would suit well with your hair. You can do some coloring if you’d prefer to. With your makeup, you do not need to put on a heavy makeup that will end up not being recognized as you. Simplicity is always beauty. For some, just a touch of foundation makeup would do. If you are concerned about your nails, you can polish it with a color the same as the color of your gorgeous prom dress.

Date: Are you worried about not having a date? This should not concern you, not all teens going to the prom have their own dates, some of them just want to have fun and relax while walking around the venue, making friends to those whom they do not know. It is going to be a win-win situation, you will be attending the prom which happens only once in a lifetime plus you will be gaining more friends. Besides, your friends have been asking you about going to prom. You will always have your friends, and you can have a group date, which will be the most rewarding event for all of you before the school ends.

Great suggestions! My daughter is a freshman in high school, so prom isn’t too far away. I’m secretly hoping she chooses a long gown.

I have a son who is two years from Prom, but will probably just fall in love with himself yet again when he dresses up! I think there is more pressure on women, many guys do not care that much. I know for me, as long as I matched, I was ready to dance and party at the Prom!

It won’t be long until my girls are all grown up and ready for prom! It was so fun when I was younger; glad to see it’s just as formal as it has always been!

I went to prom twice in high school I remember those days. I wish the internet was more helpful when I was a teen but I had to go old school and just shop around, but I think researching online gives so many options now!

My daughter is already stressing about prom and what to wear and she is only in 8th grade! I really do wish we had access to the internet when I was growing up for shopping and all other information at your fingertips when you need it!

I remember my teen when she was asked as a sophomore she was excited and anxious and stressed! But later on her junior and senior year she was totally relaxed and psyed. Haha you can say that the first one will always have those feelings and then after they know already what to expect.

Long prom dresses are good for teens! Some of my friends prefer the cocktail type but the long dresses look more regal and chic. I love red colored dresses too.
