Prom Season tips: Getting your teen ready to choose a dress

with 2 Comments

Here are some Prom Season Tips for you to consider.  A prom is a wonderful event in the life of your teen and it’s a great time to share memories together.  Making sure your teen has the right gown for the occasion should be tops on the list. Hopefully you have already been discussing with your teen what she plans to wear to the prom.  If not you should start planning now.  Prom Season is not that far off.  Here are some things to think about as you prepare for your dress consultation:

Is it formal or semi formal?  Formal usually means long gowns and semi formal typically is for comfortable shorter dresses.  When deciding on colors think about your corsage and what colors your date will be wearing.  After all you dont want to clash.  Have a design or style in mind, a budget and the type of fabric you want to use. 

If you have a budget think about the type of design you are going for.  The more work that has to be done on your dress the more it will cost.  Beading and ruching skirts will make the dress look very glamorous but are more costly.

    I like silk organza fabric which can be used as an overlay on a satin or silk taffeta but the 2011 pantone color is honeysuckle. I noticed that prom dresses this year has a combination color of fuschia and black. I would get fabric from Joanns Fabric. They carry these fabric I mentioned and most of the time they have 40% off coupon/discount on their fabrics. Thanks for your inquiry. If you are still looking for prom dress my friend Suzanne at Suzanne’s Bridal Boutique has tons of gorgeous selection. They are located on the south east corner of Guadalupe and Gilbert Road in the same shopping center as Big Lots and BOFA. Have fun shopping. Thanks Gemma
