Some homecoming nights are early and some happen later in the spring. But either way, you should start preparing for it now. If you want the night to be just like in the movies, then you have to take matters into your own hands.
Outfit of the Day
Don the most beautiful dress and people will remember you as a woman of style. Take your time trying dresses and shoes on, and only buy that fashionable homecoming dress if you’re absolutely in love with what you see in the mirror. As for hair and makeup, check the makeup counters and salons at the mall. Salespersons usually do this for free as part of their promo. If you’re talented enough to do it well on your own, just play around with different hairstyles and makeup brush strokes so you’ll get the right look, then take charge!
You must get it all together and look perfect with 2014’s most fashionable homecoming dresses, as homecoming will come only once – you’d want to look back to that one special night with stars in your eyes.
His & Her Crowd
Consider everyone in your plans, especially if you’re making reservations somewhere. You should also consider your date. He must be someone you’re really comfortable with so the two of you can really make a night to remember. He should also be someone who cares enough to plan your corsages and boutonnieres. Coordinating the color and texture to match your dress and ordering these things in advance will surely minimize the hassle when that special evening comes. Pick it from the florist the day before and keep it in the fridge to retain the freshness!
If you haven’t been asked by anyone, then it’s totally cool to ask a guy instead. But he will most probably have a group of his own, so figure out a compromise. For instance, you can do a pre-prom with your group, and then maybe meet up with his group after. For all you know, this could be the beginning of something new! Pressing the corsage as a keepsake later on will make it even more romantic.
Start saving now to have all your costs covered. Just think of the fairy tale dress, the shoes, hair and makeup, along with the flowers, limos, and dinner. If you’re clueless as to what to wear, searching online and checking out magazines will give you an idea what will fit. Make sure the design and cut will suit your size and body type. Most importantly, make sure you’ll be comfortable in your dress the whole night long.
