Splurge on the perfect gown.I was at the department store with my sisters debating between two dresses. The first one was this tight, black “sexy” dress that was not only hideous but did nothing for my figure and the second was this lovely, off-white flowing dress that was perfect. My sisters talked me into buying the black one because my “prom should go out with a bang!” Which brings me my next don’t.
Sleep with someone just because it’s prom night. If you want to, great! If not, save it for a better time. We don’t need to go into that…
Bad things (except the sec part). If there’s one night in your life that you can follow up a naughty story with “but it was prom night” and still get away with it, it’s this one. Run around the hotel pool in your underwear, chug a whole bottle of Kahlua or draw on your friend with a permanent marker when she’s passed out.
Over do it. No fatalities, please. No one needs to fall off the 25th floor of the Intercontinental Hotel for kicks.
Find a safe way around the nonsense. Your parents shouldn’t know every detail about who exactly your rooming with after Prom (Omg, Mike!) but do tell them where your staying to give them piece of mind and leave you alone while your there. Otherwise, they’ll be bugging you the whole time. Also, if you can find a designated driver for the celebratory weekend, added bonus.
What are your Do’s and Don’t of Prom? What would you have done differently?
