My prom was a complete disaster and I wish I could have one chance to re-do that night all over again (*true story)! For starters, we (my date and my posse) were so late arriving to prom that we barely caught the photographers as they were packing up their equipment to leave. I did not get to dance one song and as I walked to the ballroom of the hotel, I see all of my fellow classmates walking to their cars & limos to head to after prom. To say the least, I was devastated. If there was a word more devastating than devastated, I would totally [insert here].
Anyway, the biggest topper of it all was that my prom dress was in shambles. I wanted my dress to be a hand-made, one-of-a-kind creation. I asked a family friend who I knew could sew to make my dress. Long story short, over the course of a couple months I asked when the fittings would be and they kept getting pushed back all the way up until the day of the prom was when I saw my dress for the first time. And it was in pieces still. I was so upset I couldn’t believe my dream prom dress was practically material that needed to be sew together still. As she frantically sews me into my dress I am so distraught that I almost decide not to go.
I finally pull myself together, only to miss prom all together. I was very sad for a long time and still get sad when I think about it. I looked forward to it and dreamed about it through all of my school years only for it to end up that way.
I said that to say, if I could go back, I would have simply BOUGHT my prom dress! No hassle, no worries, and I would have had a beautifully made quality gown.
For those of you on the hunt for your prom dress already, I found this really great dress company called Fame and Partners. What’s great is that they have a “customize” option where you can pick your style of dress you like, choose the color you want, and then customize the neckline, skirt shape, etc. Where were you when I needed you?! This is a one stop shop for you creative types that want a hand in how your dress will look or the simple gals who just want to pick a dress and go!
Be sure to buy your prom dresses from Fame and Partners if you are wanting a stress-free experience! They have so many affordable options and you will get $20 to spend when you take an online style quiz.
If you’re not looking for prom dresses, this is a great option for bridesmaids dresses as this summer will mark my 4th time as a bridesmaid! Or maybe I’ll do a prom-themed birthday this year! My birthday is in March…..do you think I should do a big party?
I wanted to share some of the options I would choose for this upcoming prom if I were to go.
Thank you for visiting!
