|This is what I wore to my last prom, ‘Elude’. Its theme was a vintage inspired version of Alice in Wonderland so I chose pale colors. I was crowned Best Dressed! More details here!|

Customized vs ready-to-wear. The perks of having customized gowns compared to purchasing ready-to-wear’s in most circumstances is that you have higher chances of achieving your dream look for prom since you tell your designer how you want it to look like. Ready-to-wear’s, however, saves the hassle and time of getting your dress done plus it also gives you a chance to explore and appreciate different designs in case you’re not particular with your gown’s details. Whatever you choose, I hope you achieve the look you want! (P.S. If you’re interested in having your gown made, Viktoria Couture & Designs would happily love to make that dream gown of yours come true!!!!!)
|As seen on my post “Fearless“, shoes from Landmark. These are the shoes I also used in my last prom.|
|I decided to take my neighbor and former schoolmate Mico to my last prom so I came up with this crafty idea HAHAHA what do you think? =))|
The Kilig Factor. Promposals would be a classic for this generation. Today, pairing up for prom isn’t just the typical “will-you-be-my-date” question and answer. Promposals are special ways on asking someone to be your date. Some can be cheesy, some can be simple and straight to the point, others may seem like a ‘mission impossible’ but throws off as a huge success. It’s not just the boys that ask girls to prom, girls can do the same too! When someone asks you, be genuine with your answer to his/her invite. When you ask someone out on the other hand, be prepared whatever he/she will answer!
|Prom two years ago my friend Mike took me as his date, in fact he was my date also the previous year in his prom so I was really comfortable with having him around for the second time.|
|My barkada and our “dates” .. we’re lacking Anna and Yuri!|
Dates or Mates? Bringing a date holds a bigger responsibility rather than going stag (no date). This would also mean that you have to let your date know in advance what color of dress you’ll be wearing so he’ll know what to get for your corsage; vice versa with you getting his boutonniere. Bringing a date means that you don’t and should NOT treat him/her as your personal assistant but see to that person as someone to enjoy the night with. This would also mean an opportunity for you to practice proper manners and good etiquette around the opposite sex. If you choose to go stag, that’s no problem either! Enjoy the rest of the night with your mates!
The Hunger Games. Catered food, ahh.. the smell of the hot roast beef and the abundance of dessert like Crème brûlée, strawberry shortcake, red velvet cake – wait. Prom is a great chance to try out lotsa GREAT food but don’t forget to only get what you can only finish. It’s embrassing to see some left overs on your plate, then comes that loud burp and a tummy grumble after that third round in the buffet.. ooops. Not a good scene to picture, especially around your date! Don’t forget your table manners, too!
Dancing Queen. There’s no problem in ‘partying’ and dancing to the beat when the strobe lights are flashing but remember that it’s a school activity. Dance appropriately and have clean fun! You don’t want to be summoned to the principal’s office the following Monday for having party animal behavior, right? Worried of having two left feet for slow dancing? Even I had the worries of that at first. Just sway and move to wear the music and your partner goes and you’ll be fine! Be very casual.
Last, but not the least ..
HAVE A SPLENDID TIME!!!!!!! 🙂
