Weddings vs. Proms

Have you thought about prom season while planning for your wedding?

Most brides totally forget about the teenagers that are also planning for their proms. Not only are you going up against other brides, now the teens that are planning for a great night out!

From dresses to tuxedos and limos, today’s teens are planning on doing “BIG” and want to be the talk of the night. So here are a few tips to help you out while planning during prom season:

Dresses- The young ladies are shopping in bridal shops to purchase their dresses and also getting alterations.

Hairstylists- Have your trial run done early and decide on the style that you will be wearing on your wedding day. The salons will be crowded with the usual weekend clients and the ladies preparing for special occasions.

Spa- Save some time and stress..... get your manicure, pedicure, eyebrows, and any additional waxing/ threading that you desire. If your budget allows, a nice massage is always great to relax a day of two before the wedding with your friends or future spouse.

Tuxedos- Schedule a fitting early to secure the tuxedos for the entire wedding party and including the escorts and ushers. Black is no longer the only color in high demand for special occasions.

Limo and transportation- if you are having your wedding earlier in the day this will help with the expenses. Some companies charge a ‘prom rate’ after 6pm.

Happy Planning!
