It’s time to start preparing for prom! Prom is an exciting event in your high school career and it is important to make the most of it and have a magical, memorable night! A lot of careful preparation goes into prom, choosing the perfect dress, getting mani/ pedi’s, and spending the whole day making sure your hair and makeup is perfect for the big night. Make your prom something your friends will talk about for years to come with these fun ideas!

1. Go to the prom in a van!

It’s a lot cheaper than a limo, and much more fun than driving separately. Find someone to let you borrow their mini van, or rent one for a day or two. You can even decorate it with hand painted signs and streamers. Your own little prom chariot!

2. Get your date pumped up for the occasion

Send him cute messages as the prom approaches. Stuff them in his locker at school or e-mail him. Let him know you are ready and really psyched!

Does your date jam? Better find out before its too late to do anything about it. Give him dance lessons. If he needs them, that is. Make it fun and learn a few steps together!

4. Surprise him with a delicious & romantic pre-prom feast!

Celebrate the approach of their big night with a private little one!

5. Spend an afternoon together at the tux shop

Have him try on every style, and decide together which one makes him feel the most suave and debonair. Hey, rent aBall Conference Center James Bond flick the night before!

6. Bring disposable cameras

Give each person in your group a camera and gather them up at the end of the night and create a prom collage!

7. Plan an “after prom” sleepover with your friends

You might want to just hangout and relax! Then, when everyone is wide awake you can have a wild breakfast of omelets, waffles, pancakes or whatever! Mmmmmmmm!

8. Put together a collage of pictures and sayings just for your friends!

Once you get back all the photos you shot (before, during, and after the prom), If you’re really happy with the results, you can bring it to a professional photographer for duplicates! It’s a very thoughtful and generous gesture that they will always treasure.

9. Play Steven Spielberg and make a mini movie!

Film tons of footage of your friends, family, and teachers! Edit it, copy it, and then you can distribute it!


Remember, prom isn’t just fun for one night, you can have fun for weeks leading up to prom and weeks after! With these tips from your prom will be one you’ll never forget!
