The Prom Vision Foundation: 

You did it! You made it through most of your senior year, the high and the lows, the excitement of the future, but the fear of the unknown. A time to honor and recognize the time you’ve spent with your community at school, to embrace the precious memories and people you’ve potentially spent more than a decade with. With all the fun and exhilarating activities associated with senior year and senioritis kicking in, it can be difficult to keep up with intricate details with the abundance of festivities. Therefore, we created this checklist for you to make the process easy and simple. 

Some people spend their whole high school career planning every detail of their extravagant prom appearance. Some people get a concept from randomly shopping, watching fashion shows, and finding inspiration. Wherever you are on your journey, the best place to start is with your faith. Corny … I know what you’re thinking, but many define their happiness by how they fit in the nice dress or gaining satisfaction in comparing themselves to others. Having the faith to believe that God created you and every other person in the world, and at prom BEAUTIFULLY & WONDERFULLY. 

After we have a solid foundation in our faith, one foundational step that can solidify your prom planning is creating both a mood board and a to-do list. A mood board is a collage of pictures or phrases that inspire or reflect someone’s vision of an event, time, period, or place. The benefit of using these organizational skills is to see your vision of how you imagine your prom experience to look like. Think about what outfit you want to wear, i.e. a dress, tuxedo? What kind of shoes do you want to wear, makeup or no makeup? This will help you bring your vision into fruition. Once done, create a to-do list with deadlines of when you’d like to accomplish different milestones like picking out your outfit, alterations, researching makeup artist, hairstyles, transportation. This will help create feasibility into your prom vision. 

Once we’ve created a mood board to visually see our vision, and a to-do list to actualize it. Now would be a wonderful time to figure out your financial resources and start budgeting. So, there’s your own personal budget, and there’s the budget for the prom itself. Your personal budget focuses on all areas of your life, whereas the prom budget is for the prom experience. Once you have created your own budget, see if there’s any scholarships, or any giveaways for seniors going to prom. Set up all the things you are doing for prom weekend and calculate the amount of money needed to get and do the things you need and want to do. This will be your prom budget.


Once you have these things in order, it’s a wonderful time to start finding styles and setting appointments. It's no secret! Prom is special, which can make the self-care, glam appointments, and everything in-between a little stressful for everyone. Typically, appointments start to get busy around mid-April to mid-May, so it’ll be wise to be prepared and make it less stressful for you, your stylist, and your entourage if you pick the style beforehand, schedule beforehand and have these appointments prepped. Like here at Diamond’s Blow Dry bar, we love to be prepared ahead of time for our clients so it’s less stressful and more peaceful. So, you won’t have to worry about who’s going to do your hair during graduation rehearsal. If you’re traveling during your prom weekend, have your transportation and bag set up for your trip. Set up housing arrangements and so on.

Once you have all your plans in place, you’ve set your appointments, it’s an exciting time to start looking for your outfits and shoes. Go back to your mood board and find things that resemble the aesthetic you pictured at the beginning of the process. The mood board is the foundation of your search, giving clear and decisive instruction for your prom outfit hunt. Once you’ve secured the fashion bag, it’s time to investigate alterations to make it fit your body precisely. This will turn into a regular outfit and make it look like it was created one-of-a-kind just for you. 

The Week of Prom:

It’s the week of prom and all the emotions are spilling within you! What a blessing it is that you’ve prepared exactly for a time like this. With all the preparations taken beforehand, last minute stress is minimized, and we can stay in the moment and enjoy the totality of this season of life. 

Here would be a fun time to check in with all appointments and make sure they’re all updated in your calendar. Check in with your stylists and seamstress to make sure that everything is going according to plan. Typically, you’d want to have your prom outfit prepared during the week off, but in case you haven’t had the chance this is something to look after. 

Who you are going to the prom with too is important as well and who is driving. Some people go with their friends, partner, by themselves. No matter who you bring, it is an opportunity to celebrate your class and the trials and tribulations throughout the year and for many friendships and relationships cultivated over the years as this season of school concludes. 

Make sure you have your tickets and your wrist flower bouquet. Also having a bit of cash, for food after prom and prom festive activities. For ladies, switch purses to a clutch or something that’ll match but won’t be super heavy for your shoulder or your back. 

The Day of Prom: 

Finally, you’ve made it to the day you’ve spent light years in your head about! PROM! At this point you’ve set all your plans and you’ve attended your appointments, you’ve prepared financially, so the stress of procrastination is lifted off your plate. You look stunning and feel even more sparkling on the inside. It’s time to check transportation, make sure all is in place, and enjoy the moment. 

Making sure we hit the basic of

personal hygiene on prom, then layering that with a scent of cologne or perfume. As for cosmetics, especially makeup. Things like hair and nails are self-care cosmetic appointments that can be done in advance to minimize stress the day off. Once cosmetics are done, make sure your outfit is ironed or steamed. Then it’s time to shine.

Picture time! Yes, before you go to prom, take pictures alone and with your support system. It really takes a village to raise a child, and prom is one of those moments where you can show thanks to your village who has given to you and has helped you grow throughout the various stages of your life. When you get older, you’ll look back on this moment with gratitude. Not only for your community at home who make up a big part of your village but also the community from school who helps you learn. 

So, as you go through the prom season as a senior, think about the precious memories that are only available right now. Then they’ll be stored in memories and suddenly you remember only a shell of what you experienced, but you’ll always remember how it made you feel. So, make the most of the moments, prepare to reduce procrastination stress. Set a dream board, a vision, a to-do list, and follow through with a plan. Set appointments and be precise, future you deserve to look back on such a memory with blushed cheeks and a filled smile. <3
