Prom Dress Hangover
Prom season has come and gone for many girls. It was a much anticipated evening with all the time, money, energy, and planning that went into the big event. At some points you might have almost felt like you were planning your wedding!
Everyone knows that a major player on Prom night was the dress. As girls, we do research, we search designer websites, we discuss our options and thoughts with friends, visit shop after shop, try on dress after dress until we find “the one”. Once you found it, you just knew it was meant to be. The first time you slipped it on and saw yourself in the mirror, you instantly envisioned the look on everyone’s face when they saw you in it. You envisioned the hundreds of pictures taken (and would later be posted on Instagram and Facebook) of you and your gown. You could hear the complements that were to be said about how gorgeous your dress was.
Basically, you knew you would be as glamorous as a movie star at the Academy Awards!
Now that the craziness is over and your dress hangs there helplessly in your closet, you might be asking yourself the question “what will I do with this dress now?” After all, you kind of bonded with your prom dress, right?
So, now what?
Here are a few options you might find helpful in figuring out the fate of your fabulous gown.
Option 1: Whether or not you are planning on keeping your prom dress or not, it is highly recommended that you take your dress somewhere reliable to have it dry cleaned. After all, you eventually took a shower after prom right? One company we recommend it Diamond Cleaners INC in Tulsa. They are located off 21st street between Sheridan and Yale. Not only are they super dependable and honest but they use eco friendly products! It’s a win win!
Options 2: College is just around the corner and a great option for many girls is to have your dress taken up/hemmed and made into a short cocktail/semiformal dress. Just think, it would be one of a kind and you would have a great excuse to show off your gown again. Chrystal’s Sewing Boutique has taken up so many dresses that Chrystal herself could do it in her sleep! Her boutique is located off of Main Street Broken Arrow.
Option 3: If you are willing to give someone else the opportunity to have a beautiful night in your beautiful dress, donating or consigning your dress is a good option. Consigning your dress would allow you to make some of your money back you spent on the dress and donating it would give you the satisfaction of just being a good person.
