Prom night is one of the most important events in a young girl’s life. The prom is a rite of passage that marks your daughter’s transition to adulthood. In many ways, the prom has replaced the debutante ball as a girl’s first introduction to formal adult parties. Consequently, her prom dress is a very important purchase. Help your daughter to select a prom dress that is appropriate and affordable, yet glamorous and chic. With your help, your daughter’s prom dress, accessories and hair and makeup choices will blend seamlessly to create a beautiful and classic prom dress look of which she can be proud for years to come.
When helping your daughter select a prom dress, it is important to keep several things in mind. Your daughter is likely to be extremely excitable, even appearing overwrought at times. It is your responsibility to maintain a cool, clear head and guide her toward appropriate and reasonable choices. When the mother is caught up in the prom dress frenzy, it becomes difficult for the daughter to make reasonable decisions.
The most important thing is, you should know the school rules, many schools have instituted prom night dress codes. Strapless styles, spaghetti straps, plunging necklines or other sexy details may not be permitted.
