Pageant Theme Ideas

Jul 26, 2017

Competing in pageants is a great way to learn confidence and poise, and it makes a wonderful way to show off your own personal style. Whether you’re competing in your first pageant or your hundredth, you may want to go for a themed outfit for your formalwear portion to keep things fun and exciting. It doesn’t matter if you’re competing in a glitz or a natural pageant, theme-wear is appropriate for all pageants!

Here are some fun and creative theme-wear ideas for your upcoming pageants.

  • Academy Awards. Slip into a long, sparkling dress in a bright, bold color, do your hair in some Old Hollywood waves and even carry a homemade Oscar along with your outfit to complete this starlet theme.
  • Rock Star. Wear a short, black dress covered in sequins and sheer panels, rock your highest spike heels and maybe even carry a guitar for this rockin’ look.
  • Winter Wonderland. If the pageant is in the winter, go all out for the season with a snowy white dress covered in crystals, then complete the look with some furry earmuffs and matching mittens.
  • Paris. For a Parisian theme, don your best French look with a Little Black Dress, some oversized sunglasses and a beret perched on top of your head.
  • Great Gatsby. There are few time periods more romantic or iconic than the Roaring ‘20s, so channel the look of Daisy Buchanan with a flapper-style frock and some perfectly coiffed finger waves.
  • Egyptian. You’ll look just like an Egyptian queen when you step out onto the stage in a glittering white dress accented with gold details. Complete this look with a gold headband wrapped around your forehead, some cat eye eyeliner and long, sleek black hair.
  • Alice in Wonderland. Go down the rabbit hole into Wonderland with a short baby blue dress , a stuffed rabbit and a white apron on top.

  • Homecoming. Because most schools think of homecoming as a less formal dance, it’s super fun and easy to wear a short, sassy dress to this type of dance. You’ll still want to keep things chic and elegant, however, so choose a two-piece tiered dress that’s totally ahead of the trends, (http://www.dressprom.net/4124-rachel-allan-a-line-short-prom-dress.html) or a form-fitting cocktail dress covered in ornate beading (http://www.dressprom.net/4132-rachel-allan-sheath-short-prom-dress.html).
  • Prom. Who says you can’t wear a short dress to the prom? If you’re the kind of girl who loves standing out in a crowd, show off your legs in a flirty dress with a shorter hemline. To avoid looking too casual or too plain, you’ll want to choose a dress with lots of details, like a bodycon short gown with sheer illusion panels and glittering gold embroidery (http://www.dressprom.net/c356-blush-sequins-short-prom-dress.html). Pair it with the perfect sky high heels, a fabulous hairstyle and even a floor-length coat for a glam look.
  • A wedding. If you’re going to be dancing all night at a wedding, you’ll want to have a dress that allows you to really move. DressProm.net carries all kinds of short, formal dresses that are ideal for any wedding guest. Choose a chiffon cocktail dress with a sweet halter top that’s pretty and versatile, (http://www.dressprom.net/21885-la-femme-halter-short-dress.html), or go for something like a sweetheart A-line frock with some serious retro vibes (http://www.dressprom.net/22533-la-femme-sweetheart-short-dress.html).la-femme-v-neck-short-dress

A flirty V-neck cocktail dress in a basic black (http://www.dressprom.net/22193-la-femme-v-neck-short-dress.html) is the perfect Little Black Dress for dinner, dancing or even a night at a concert.

    1. Pick a theme. Whether you go all out with an elaborate Mardi Gras or 1950s theme, or just stick to something simple, like a barbecue or Halloween theme, you’ll want to choose a theme that make things feel a bit more festive. This will also help you to choose all of the decorations, foods and other important details.
    2. Pick a venue. For larger parties, renting a room at a local restaurant or club is a great option. If you’re operating on a smaller budget, you can also host a party outdoors in a local park or at your home.
    3. Plan the guest list. First, think of how many people you can comfortably host, and then go from there. Once you have a general number, you can browse the guest of honor’s Facebook page or even her cell phone to find out whom to invite.
    4. Decide on refreshments. Will you serve snacks and drinks, or go for a more formal feel with a sit-down dinner? Whatever you decide on, make sure there’s plenty of refreshments for everyone invited.
    5. Plan an outfit. The best part of a party is the dressing up, so pick your perfect short cocktail dress or festive, themed frock! (http://www.dressprom.net/4113-rachel-allan-printed-short-prom-dress.html)
    6. Decide on the surprise. Some people like to make a Sweet 16 party a surprise, but you’ll want to consider the guest of honor’s personality first. If she’s more of a shy or laid-back type, you might want to keep her in the loop during all of the planning.
    7. Send out invitations. You’ll want to send out invites with all of the essential information about the party, but there’s no need for invitations in the mail; simply send out a mass message on social media or an email invitation with all of the details.
    8. Make it fun. Create a dance-worthy playlist, add some festive decorations and keep the mood light to encourage guests to have a good time!
