    How large your group is will affect transportation.
    Browse online to get ideas. Does your prom have a theme? This may impact your choice of dress.
    For girls, this may be influenced by what type of dress you choose, as well as any hair accessories and jewelry.
    Check out carpool options with other parties.
    Will you be getting ready with friends at someone's house, or prepping solo at home?
    If you are part of a group, get a consensus of ;everyone's ;budget and meal ;preferences. Shop around for deals - some restaurants offer group discounts, or deals on special occasion parties.
    You'll want at least a few weeks for this, since you may change your mind or need alterations.
    Make sure they are comfortable enough to be able to walk in for at least a few hours!
    Bring pictures so your hair stylist knows what you want.
    These can be done a day or two before the event to save time.
    Getting take-out food and eating it before you prep is an alternative (and cheaper) dinner plan.
    If hiring a driver, arrange all pickup/drop-off details and hours of service beforehand.
    If you are going in a group, plan to meet at a location where everyone can take photographs.
    Make sure you know where you'll be staying, whether at a hotel, your home, or a friend's house.
    If you are getting a manicure/pedicure, get nails done first, then hair, ending with makeup.
    Prep at your planned location, and finish off with any accessories.
    Make sure to bring enough money for the bill and tip.

Dazzle in your dress, but don't forget the tickets! Prom season is finally here, but you need a plan to make sure things go smoothly. Make your prom night fuss-free and fun with our Prom checklist.


  • If your shoes are too uncomfortable for dancing, bring a pair of fancy flats you can change into.
  • Bring a small bag or purse with any makeup, hairspray or hair accessories you may need.
  • Bring a spare set of casual attire and footwear in case you want to change later on. (Midnight breakfast, anyone?)
  • If you're going somewhere else for the night, bring a bag with a change of clothes and any toiletries you may need.
  • If you are not renting a limo or party bus, ensure that you are making safe transportation arrangements. Always have a designated driver.
  • In addition to your cell phone, carry contact numbers of close family members or neighbors. If you want or need to leave your group, you should always have a safe alternative for getting home. Bring extra cash for cab or bus fare just in case.
