Welcome to the BT Blog
Where we Hope to Inform and Inspire
It's prom season and while we at BT are helping ladies and gents get their attire planned, bought or rented, it's a good time to remind our brilliant readers of some of the dos and don'ts for promgoers.
Dos for the Night
Pick a dress or outfit that you really love. It's a special occasion and you should feel that you look your best and feel amazing.
Go with someone you enjoy being with. For those of you who aren't dating someone exclusively, make sure your date is fun, respectful and will want to stick with you from start to finish. Going with a best friend is always a good idea.
Compliment your date! Make them feel special by telling them how amazing they look.
Make an entrance! If you don't want to rent a limo, see if you and your group can find a stylish old car to borrow and the driver to go with it. Otherwise, just enter ready to enjoy the evening.
Wear jewelry and a hairstyle that complement your dress. Nothing makes a statement like an complete look.
Get your attire ordered and coordinated in plenty of time. We are here for ya!
Dance and have fun!! Prom is about spring, the nearing end of the school year and celebrating with your friends.
Dont's for the night
Don't do anything illegal. We had to say it. But seriously, there is no need for regret, regret, regret. Understand the rules set out by your school and the prom venue. Where it says "NO," don't bother trying to get around the rules.
Don't go tanning the day before your prom. And beware of spray tans.
Don't choose uncomfortable clothing. Don't wear a gown that is difficult to move in, dance in, sit in, or is just generally makes you feel like you're out of yourself instead of present. The same for your shoes: don't wear heels that you haven't at least walked in long enough to know that they'll work. You will be walking and dancing.
Don't freak out if someone is wearing the same dress. You are you and you'll look singular.
Don't ignore your friends. Make plans to find and see them so that new and old friends and dates can get to know each other and mingle.
Do not overspend on prom. Nor should you think that it's the biggest night of your life.
It is a special milestone that is a lot of fun. No pressure. Have a great time!
