Your Ultimate Prom Day Guide: Tips and Essentials

Updated: Mar 5

Prom season is upon us, and it's a time filled with excitement, anticipation, and, of course, the quest for the perfect prom dress. Whether you're a prom newbie or a seasoned attendee, navigating the whirlwind of preparations can be overwhelming. But fear not! We've got you covered with this quick guide to ensure your prom day is nothing short of magical.

We're More than Alterations!

#1: Shop Early

With spring break just around the corner, procrastination is not your friend. Beat the rush and shop for your dream dress early. Remember, prom dresses are seasonal, and waiting until the last minute may leave you with limited options. Don't let FOMO (fear of missing out) dampen your prom spirit!

#2: Schedule Alterations in Advance

Once you've found the dress of your dreams, give yourself plenty of time for alterations. Most prom dress alterations take 1-3 weeks, so book your appointment early to avoid any last-minute stress or rush costs. Remember to bring along your shoes and undergarments for the perfect fit. You can learn more about our alterations process on our formals page.

#3: Prom Day Must Haves
