Still haven’t found a prom dress? Whether you just recently decided to go to prom, or you simply haven’t found a dress you like yet, we can help! Here are some of our best tips for last-minute prom dress shopping, and a few of our favorite dresses this season to help you start finding the dress of your dreams.
1. Go in-person.
While it’s tempting to spend hours browsing the thousands of prom dresses you can find online, there are two complications with online shopping when you begin to run out of time. One, it can be a time-suck. If you have 200 pages of prom dresses to choose from, how do you decide? Two, if you order your prom dress online last-minute, you run the risk of the dress not shipping on time, or not liking the dress when it does arrive. At this point in the game, it’s a better idea to head to your nearest prom store instead.
2. Bring a trusted advisor.
Whether it’s your mom, you aunt, your sister or your best friend, bring someone you trust with you when you shop for a dress. A second opinion can make committing to a big purchase easier.
3. Set a budget.
To help narrow down your choices, set a budget and only look at dresses that fall within it. This will instantly streamline your selection and make the decision process easier.
4. Have fun.
If you’ve been looking at prom dresses for months and just can’t seem to settle on “the one,” it’s time to re-think how you’re going about your dress shopping. You’re looking for a dress to wear to a big, fun party, so take the pressure off of choosing the perfect dress, and know that there are dozens of options that would probably look gorgeous on you, but at the end of the day you can only wear one of them. Pick a dress that’s flattering, comfortable, and that suits your style, and then go enjoy yourself!
