The Most Important Prom-Planning Points

Candyland

  • Pick a Theme! — OK, this is the fun part! The theme you choose totally determines all of your other prom-planning essentials, so you’ve got to pick your theme early. We love classic themes like Hollywood (because who doesn’t want a real red carpet at prom?) and Paris, but you can get creative with out-of-the-box 2017 prom themes like neon, carnival or candyland. Bonus: you can shop DressProm.net for your prom dress by theme for the perfect wardrobe.
  • Pick a Venue — Your venue should be guided by your theme, not the other way around. Early on in the prom-planning process, you need to establish a venue budget. Once you’ve got that squared away, you should start scouting venues. Make sure to have your venue booked at least six months in advance.
  • Nail Down Décor — Tip No. 1 for prom decorations: get cozy with the theater department. If you’re going for a place theme (like Paris, New York or Hollywood), then your school probably has some useful set decorations from plays past. You can also plan décor parties and make your own decorations at home.
  • Book Entertainment — Make sure to properly vet your DJ or live band, because there’s no prom disaster quite like having lame music! Book your entertainment at least three months in advance, and start researching at least six months in advance to make sure that your top choices aren’t booked on prom night.
