The smell of anticipation, acrylic nails, and cologne is in the air. Prom rolls around every year, and the stress never fails to fade. Here are some essentials that will aid any Upper Division student in having the most poppin’ prom possible.
The dress can make or break your prom experience. There are so many options to what a girl can wear, and it can be quite overwhelming to pick just one. Sequins can be blinding or beautiful, black can be classic or mournful, and two-pieces can be scandalous or sweet. Getting a dress online is always a gamble. You expect to get the dress of your dreams and you actually receive a potato bag. That is why trying on a dress is key.
” I got my dress in February,” Jordan Young (’18) says. “It makes it so much easier to just buy your dress in person and like a month or two early because then all the good dresses will still be there”.
When most people think of Prom attire, the dress always comes to mind. But the tux is essential to the men’s attire. The boys actually outdo the girls in price. Is buying a tux worth it? A tux alone can cost up to 1,000 dollars. That can truly break the bank, but this tux could last a young man for years to come. Even though renting a tux is only $200, does it make sense to spend that amount of money every time you have a formal event? Boys can be become a James Bond for a night with a well fitting tux.
“Renting a tux is way cheaper and is way better,” says Jason Carrey (’18). “I would literally only wear a tux twice a year, so why would I buy one?”
A promposal is the closest thing a teenage boy can get to a marriage proposal in high school. From flowers to a marching bands, there are so many ways to having to having a perfect prom ask. There is nothing more anti-climatic or lazy than a simple “Prom?” text. This is in no way saying that girls need a blimp in order to yes to Prom, but effort is always nice. So find out what the girl likes and create a thoughtful proposal. For example, if she likes candy, get her some treats and make a sign that says,” It would be sweet if you went to Prom with me!”.
“I got asked in a kinda big way and I loved it especially since he came to my house and didn’t do it at school,” said Claire Jahns (’18).
Getting ready for Prom can take hours for a girl. From face masks, make up, and hair, girls should make sure that you have at least five hours or so to make sure all you look amazing. All boys have to do is shower, shave, and get dressed up. Girls are constantly stressed up until the second they leave the house for pictures, but guys can probably get ready in 30 minutes and still have time to get in a quick game of Fortnite.
“It takes me about an hour to get ready,” Jorge Escobar (’18). “I just take a shower, shave, and quaff my hair. If I have time, I will definitely play a game of Fortnite.”
Prom is one of the most entertaining nights of a Upper Division Falcon’s CB career. Even with no date, Prom can still be a blast, so every student to come out and dance the night away with their classmates.
