Prom Dress Disaster

by Rachel Wildman

I always say that there are two important events in a girl’s life: her wedding day and her prom. The dress is just as important as a wedding dress in the sense that it must be breath-taking. The only thing is, unlike your wedding day, there is a chance that someone could be wearing the same dress as you.

One way to prevent this from happening is to shop at vintage stores. This way, you will find a unique dress but it will also save you a lot of money that you can put towards shoes and that limo.

Shopping at designer stores can also give you a dress that is one-of-a-kind. Most students wouldn’t bother spending more than $500 on a dress that will only be worn once, so splurging will guarantee you a distinctive look. But let’s face it, it’s not the most budget friendly suggestion.

If you are good with your hands and love design, why not make your own dress? This way, you can choose your own fabric, tailor the dress to hug and accentuate your favorite curves and create your actual dream dress.

Finally, take initiative and create a Facebook group where you and all the senior girls can post pictures of their dresses. This way, you can see what everyone is wearing before prom and work out the kinks. Though it may be painful to return a dress that you were determined to wear, it sure beats the confrontation on the dance floor.
