Prom planning can be stressful. When should you start planning? When should you hire a professional DJ? The important thing to remember is that with a bit of planning, prom season should go off without a hitch. There are plenty of approaches you can take to planning your prom season, but we’ve got some simple solutions for timing the planning process just right. Be proactive and plan ahead to avoid prom season stresses and missing details. Here is a helpful timeline for planning a stress-free prom season in 2019
3 Months to Prom
To prevent mishaps down the road, you’ll want to start planning for prom sooner rather than later. About three months ahead of the event is the time to get shopping. Whether you need to find just the right tux or comparison shop for the perfect prom dress, get started early to make sure that you find the right style in a perfect fit.
2 Months Out
Prom season just so happens to overlap quite a bit with wedding season. This means that you’ll want to get your professional bookings in order about two months ahead of prom. Any photographers, limousines, and hair and makeup appointments should be made at this point in the process. Scheduling your reservations and appointments now will help prevent that hectic prom-weekend stress.
2 Weeks Prior
Two weeks before prom, you’ll want to make sure any final fittings for your dress or tuxedo are totally sorted out. This is also a good time to make sure you have the right shoes. They should complement the outfit while also being comfortable enough to dance in all night. Sort out accessories and photo locations at this point in the planning process to avoid last minute confusion.
1 Week Out
During the last week leading up to prom, you should be sure to confirm all the appointments you’ve been planning over the last three months. Confirm your hair and makeup appointments, photographer, limousine or transportation service, and more to make sure that the dance goes off without issue.
1-2 Days Before
Finally, in the final stages of prom planning, you’ll want to take care of the last-minute details. Visits to the hair and nail salon typically happen the weekend of the event, and you’ll want to pick up flowers, corsages, and boutonnieres just before the event to make sure they stay fresh.
