Whether it's your last prom or your first you desire it to be nothing short of perfect, and why shouldn't it be? After four years of sharing notes, doing projects, and studying together, prom is the one night of the school year everyone reserves for having a good time! However, after winter break ended and the new year started, being bombarded with school related responsibilities has made prom feel like it's lightyears away. In reality, your special night is only a couple of months away, so starting to piece together what you'd like to wear is going to do nothing but help you!
It’s no secret that there’s a ton to do to prepare. Figuring out who’s in your group, organizing transportation, coordinating hair and makeup, planning with your date, and buying shoes and accessories can get hectic. Finding a dress in the right size, cut, and color that matches your unique personality and style takes a long time, so don’t wait to start!
Time To Explore
By starting now, you’ll have the time to see what you don’t like, and more importantly what you do. Even if you think you know exactly what you want, having the time to try new styles, cuts, and colors may leave you with a dress you never would have thought you wanted.
Skip The Spring Rush
Whether most people at your school start shopping before spring break or after, spring is essentially the ‘black friday’ of dress shopping. By getting ahead, you’ll be able to sit back and relax (in your dream dress) while everyone else rushes around trying to find one.
Ample Time For Alterations
Not every dress size fits every body type, so alterations are usually a part of the process. On average, retailers take 2-4 weeks to make your dress look its absolute best. Last minute shopping leaves absolutely no room for error. Purchasing your dress now gives you the time to get it altered, ultimately fitting your unique body shape perfectly.
Ditch The Duplicates
Most prom dress retailers have registries, and nothing could possibly be worse than finding a dress that you love, only to find out that someone from your school has already bought it! Retailers won’t release the same dress to the same school, and finding another one afterwards takes the fun out of dress shopping. Getting your ideal dress sooner rather than later will allow you to bypass this limitation.
Find Another One
Due to RSVP Prom and Pageant’s fluid process and large inventory, buying your dream dress online won’t be a problem. However, if you find yourself in the situation where it doesn’t fit or you don’t like it, that shouldn’t be a dealbreaker. Leave yourself with enough time to explore and find the right dress for you.
Prom dress shopping should be fun. By taking away the stress of last minute shopping, you’ll truly be able to enjoy it.
