Getting ready for prom is an exciting time for any senior school student. There are many things to think about. You may think that prom needs to be an expensive affair, however, there are many ways to save money and plan your prom night on a budget.
While the perfect prom dress is a pre requisite, perfect doesn’t necessarily mean expensive. There are many ways to have your perfect prom dress on a limited budget. Remember, it is just one night. You do not want to spend important college money on a dress you will be wearing for one night. One great way to save money is to consider borrowing a dress from an older friend or relative. After all, they no longer have use for their prom dress. Another great way is to be creative and create your own dress. Find a plain dress you like at a thrift shop or in your own wardrobe and redesign it using ribbon, beads and flowers. Your dress will be one of a kind and you are guaranteed to amaze your friends when they hear you made it yourself.
While a limo would be your first choice, limo rentals can be very expensive and in honesty, unnecessary. Alternatively, you could travel together with a few friends. Speak to a company that does school formal car hire, which will be luxurious yet much cheaper to hire than a limo.
Look at all the options the company has to offer, you may find that, as you are now sharing the rental with friends, you may be even be able to afford another option. If you and your friends would like to pool in and hire something a little more superior, a company that does school formal car hire in Gold Coast may also be able to offer you a cinderella limo at a nominal rate.
Hair and make-up and Accessories
Have a friend or a relative who is studying to be a hair dresser do your hair and make up for you. They will be glad to have the practice and will be able to do a professional looking job. Alternatively, you and your friends could get together before prom and do each other’s make up.
Create some exciting and unusual looking accessories yourself by doing some research online about DIY accessories. Like your dress, you will have the most unique accessories at prom by creating your own.
Hiring professional photographers can be expensive. Bring your own digital camera to prom or buy a disposable camera where you and your friends will be able to take your own pictures. You can also use your phones camera to take some great shots.
