When Should I Start Shopping for My Prom Dress?

ImageShops  put out their prom dresses  for the new year as early as January. January is the time to get the best selections. Things get gone extremely quick in prom season. As soon as gowns hit the floor they are taken. The hottest new styles are usually the very first to go. So do not wait around until the best styles are picked over. Get a head start so that you will not get leftovers.

You also need to purchase early to make time for alterations if needed. A good seamstress starts scheduling alterations for prom in January. There are only a few good seamstresses and hundreds of girls going to prom in your area. You do the math!

What Style Should I Choose When My Bridesmaids Are All Different Shapes and Sizes?

It’s very unlikely that all your bridesmaids will be exactly the same shape and size.

A girl that wears a size 16 wont look the same as a girl that wears a size 2. (especially if she’s busty!)

You should either choose a dress that will flatter the largest girl or let the bridesmaids choose their own dress but stick with the same color, designer and fabric.

Be sure that no one picks the exact same dress and that all of them are hemmed at the same length.

If you do this, you will make everyone happy and save the girls a ton of money in alterations.
