Perfect Prom Checklist

It’s time to polish your tiara as the battle for prom queen is about to commence!

We know how much of a big day your Prom is, and we know that preparing can be a little bit stressful sometimes! So, we’ve comprised a checklist to ensure that you don’t forget any important details…

The most important part of the Prom is of course, your dress! Make sure you look unique and stand out from the rest. Try our Eliza dress to look dazzling in white, or shop our prom feature for an alternative.

We know how much of a pain guys can be, but having a hot guy on your arm on prom night will totally compliment your outfit! Our advise? See how close you can get to a Robert Pattinson lookalike…

Accessories can be just as important as your dress, so make sure you find the perfect piece to compliment your look. We recommend our Gold and Diamante Floral Bracelet to add some sparkle to your wrist.

Give yourself plenty of time to prepare on the day – and don’t forget, take a bath BEFORE your hair is done, because if you do it afterwards then the steam will cause a catastrophe.

Of course, you’re going to need some music for you and your girls to get ready to! Check out our Dahlia-Radio for the perfect vintage inspired prom playlist.

And finally, a SUPER SECRET TIP from Dahlia HQ… Make sure you check back next week for a special Prom Giveaway! Ssssh… Top secret! ;)

Love Dahlia x

  • I worry a bit that there is too much pressure on young people these days to ‘keep up’ and that a prom event can be stressful rather than enjoyable.
