Do you have a young lady in your life who will be attending prom this spring? Well, we have a secret insiders tip for you: Shop Now.
You may think that it is too early to start, but while most events take place in late spring, the best time to start looking for the perfect prom dress is in January. As with everything else, the early bird gets the worm when it comes to dresses. Many shops, including The Wedding Dress Shoppe, register each girl’s dress with the school’s prom that she will be attending to ensure that another girl isn’t wearing the same one. If you start shopping in January, your prom attendee will get her first choice.
Shopping early also means that if the promgoer finds an off-the-rack dress but needs it in a different size or color, there is still plenty of time to order it. A little known fact is that ordered prom dresses can take a few months to be delivered. Then, as many girls still need some sort of alterations even after a special order (even if it as easy as adjusting a seam or a hem), there is plenty of time for this work to happen.
Another thing to consider: If your young lady is torn between several dresses, there is no rush. She has plenty of time to make up her mind.
So bypass the last-minute rush and make prom dress shopping fun and carefree. At The Wedding Dress Shoppe, we want to make sure that your girl isn’t the one who waits until the last minute. We want her to get the dress of her dreams! Unfortunately, as time gets closer to prom, fewer styles are available to choose from or a designer may not be able to ship out a particular style in time. Shop early to be successful.
Once you’ve made the (wise) decision to start early, there are some practical things you should do to make shopping for a prom dress easier:
