Start Saving Early

From limo rides to elegant dresses and suits—prom can be expensive! It’s a good idea to make a list of what you will need to buy and start saving your allowance or work money now. If possible, ask your parents for some odd jobs to make a little extra cash.

Start Shopping Early

You don’t want to be scrambling at the last minute to buy all the things you need for prom. Start looking for the perfect dress or fitted tux several months before. Don’t forget about your shoes, hair and corsage! Remember that stores and salons are busy right before prom so it’s better to be early with your preparations.

Make Safe After Prom Plans

It won’t take long for your classmates to start making after prom plans. Be sure to choose yours wisely and attend an event that you feel will be safe and fun. Tell your parents where you will be and go with friends you trust. Need some ideas? Try late night bowling, a midnight movie, a BBQ or a small get together at someone’s house.
