Do You Have an All-Night Prom?

Dec 11, 2009

For some students, the prom is more than just an evening of dancing and dining. Sometimes, it’s an all-out affair that lasts well into the next morning! However, these all-night proms aren’t about partying – they’re actually about keeping kids entertained – and safe from parties – on prom night.

Much like a lock-in event, students who participate in all-night proms will get to have the traditional festivities of dancing, royalty, and some good eats, however, with these occasions, attendees can also enjoy games, concerts, sports, activities, or other forms of entertainment after the prom has ended at the reception hall. These types of proms aren’t boring either – many students and parents alike appreciate a fun, safe, alcohol- and drug-free environment for students to have the time of their lives.

Do you have an all-night prom? Tell us about it! We want to hear about what your school does to keep things going all night long.

Financing Your Formals

Dec 4, 2009

Believe it or not, with how crazy the economy is, the cost of throwing a formal event, like a prom or a homecoming dance, is going up and up. No matter how parents, teachers, and party planners try, prom just seems to be recession-proof. Not to worry though. You can still look fabulous on the big day without having to spend a ton of your hard-earned cash. Here’s a few tips for financing your formals without costing you or your parents a ton:

  1. Instead of choosing to get your hair and nails done professionally at a salon for the event, have someone who is good at both do it at home. You’ll save time and money – guaranteed. Plus, you’ll still look fabulous.

  2. Set a budget. This is the first thing you should do when thinking about attending an event. Start out by taking into account what funds you have already and what you’ll have to purchase. For example, if you have shoes or accessories that can work for the occasion, then just focus in on the dress.

  3. Buy your dress second hand, or look to find prom dresses under your price range. DressProm.net has a great selection of prom dresses under 300 dollars.

  4. Don’t rent the limo. Instead, drive or carpool with friends. It’s more eco-friendly and affordable.

  5. Have a birthday or a holiday coming up before your prom? Try asking for gift certificates or cash that you can use toward financing all of you
