Things to consider for Prom

There’s no getting away from it – Prom is one of the biggest events in a teenager’s calendar and we can see why. There’s so much to think about… hair, suits and dresses, accessories, make up, transport and so much more!

You might feel pressured to live up to a certain expectation, but fear not, as we’re here to advise you on everything you need to consider with plenty of time to spare.


Possibly one of the BIGGEST things for any girl or boy out there - how to style your hair! Whether you’ll be doing your hair yourself on the day or letting an expert take the lead, it’s always best to do your research and decide how you want your hair. Popular Prom hairstyles include half up, half down styles, waterfall braids and updos. Once you’ve decided what hairstyle takes your fancy, either practise long before the big day or take it to a trusted hairdresser. Here is a list of hairdressers in Swindon.


Now here’s where the hard decision lies…what colour prom dress or prom suit to go for? If you need a suit for Prom, why not look into hiring one? Even if you’re looking to get yours online, it’s always a good idea to go into a suit or dress shop and try them on before you buy. This allows you to see for yourself which colours and styles suit you best which you wouldn’t get by ordering straight from offline. Read more about prom suit and dress hire in Swindon.


That grand entrance to the Prom venue is everything, isn’t it? If you’re grouping up with friends to get something MEGA impressive, a limousine always goes down well and makes a fun ride to get the night started. But why not push the boat out and opt for something a bit more unique? How about a party bus or a Bentley? For smaller groups, vintage cars are a classy way to make an entrance and are bound to get heads turning! More about Prom car hire in Swindon.


There’s nothing worse than worrying about the potential problem of your make up going wrong on the day of Prom. But you needn’t worry – if you pop down to Boots in Brunel Centre, several of the make up counters will do your make up for free (including a trial several weeks beforehand!) There are also a huge range of professional beauty salons in Swindon who will do your make up for you, so there’s no need to worry. Read more about Beauty Salons in Swindon.


Although having your nails done is a small touch, it’s an effective one and it can bring a whole outfit together, especially if they’re matching with all your other accessories! If you don’t regularly get your nails done, it’s probably best to do your research on whether you’d like acrylics or shellac, plus the shape, colour and length you’d like. If possible, find an image for the nail technician to follow to ensure you get the ideal results! Here’s a list of fabulous nail salons in Swindon.

Shoes & Accessories

Who could forget about shoes and accessories! When choosing which shoes to opt for, it’s a good idea to take a good look at your attire and the colours and see how you can pair the two. If your dress is very dainty but shorter, shoes are going to be important as they will be on show. Although it’s not so much of an issue if the shoes are covered by a dress, it’s still vital to match the colour to your dress in some way – because at some points of the night, they will be on show! Little added accessories such as jewellery always give the magic touch too. If you’re wearing multiple pieces of jewellery, try and stick to an either gold or silver theme as the two can clash.


Prom is a huge milestone and exciting time in our lives, so of course, you’ll want to get photos of the big day that you can keep for years! Whether you’re looking to get a professional photographer in to take photos of you with your friends and family or just having someone you know on hand to grab a few snaps, it’s definitely something to think about ahead of the big day. 

So, there we have it! Here are all the things you need to consider when planning your perfect Prom night. We hope all prom-goers have an incredible time and make it a night to remember!
