For high school students, prom night is a big day. However, the event isn’t about the night itself alone. It’s a culmination of various fun events leading up to the main occasion. These events offer friends more time to bond and create more memories.
Therefore, instead of focusing on the night alone, why not start the party early and kick out the nervousness?
Hold a Mocktail
Before the limo arrives to transport to the prom location, you can hold a mocktail party. The only difference between a mocktail and a cocktail is the drinks in the latter are alcoholic. In addition, if you have some prom dresses and you haven’t decided, a mocktail will buy you time.
On the menu, serve non-alcoholic punch, a signature mocktail, cider or sparkling water. For light snacks, consider crackers, cheese and fruits since they’re also part of many cocktail menus. It’s normal for you to feel nervous ahead of the prom night. The light snacks and drinks will calm you down and will not affectthe dinner you’ll have later on at prom.
Consider a Pre-Prom Breakfast
The best way to start your day is by taking a healthy breakfast and why not do it with your high school buddies? There’s still an entire day ahead so there’s no need to get dressed. Instead, invite fellow friends and remind each other of the famous memories while in school.
Furthermore, you can build the breakfast around the prom’s theme to make it more interesting and fun at the same time.
Some of the breakfast ideas include:
- French toast
- Cinnamon rolls
- Breakfast Casserole
- Bread, spreads, bagels and muffins
- Sparkling wine
This is a great way to bond and spend time with your friends. The best time to go for a spa party is the afternoon or morning. Apart from bonding, the ladies can get a manicure and pedicure, facial scrub and other beauty touch-ups to ensure they look their best during the prom night.
If a spa is out of the budget, you can call in a stylist who’ll take care of the entire group. In addition, you can also help each other get ready.
For the guys, don’t be shy now. Spas aren’t only meant for the ladies. You can also get tag along your friends to get a haircut.
What’s all the fun if you don’t have photos to show for it? Just as the prom night is big, photo shoots carry an almost similar significance.
They don’t have to be formal poses. In fact, get into a photo booth and make all the funny faces as possible. It’ll get rid of the nervousness as the clock ticks down to the actual event.
In addition, you can locate a store which sells cheap prom dresses. Try them out as you take photos in the dresses.
Moreover, wouldn’t it be fun to have your friends beside you until the last moment?
Prom night involves more than just the actual event. There’re many activities in between the event and also after. However, you can take advantage of the long day ahead to plan for some fun activities to do before the night. The most important factor is to be happy!
