Well, it's been a month and a half since my daughter's Junior-Senior Prom Night. I know this blog post is super delayed. At times, life does get in the way! LOL! No, I'm not going to make excuses. I didn't quite know how to share this so I procrastinated. Then, lo and behold, I remembered I put it on my "to do list" and hasn't managed to cross it out. Now, I'm taking action and doing something about it. There is indeed something to be learned from every situation. ^_^
So going back to Prom Night preparations, a few months before the event, my daughter decided she would wear a red gown. And that her chosen motif would be red and gold. When I asked her why she chose red, she simply said that it stands out in the photo. Indeed! Once the photos have been posted, she did stand out in a red gown! ^_^
If you're planning for a specific motif, it would be good to do your shopping in advance. You may not want to purchase stuff yet but you would definitely want to plan your budget way in advance. I personally believe this is a good idea, as planning ahead helps you organize and manage your time and resources.
Red and gold. I would say it's a pretty good combination. Plus, it shouldn't be too difficult to find accessories as this combination is pretty much a classic favorite. We found this set of accessories that includes a necklace, bracelet, ring, and a pair of earrings. It's not too cheap but not too heavy on the budget either. I would estimate the cost to be below $15.
My daughter wore these with her long gown.
And since she had a cocktail gown to change into, she needed another pair of earrings to match the set. It's a good thing that we found one she liked.
And lastly, we had to find tote bag and shoes to match her other accessories. We found both in gold. I guess planning ahead is indeed advantageous. Both items were purchased in a sale! Good quality at a cheaper price -- now who wouldn't like that right? ^_^
I will share about her gowns in another post. We were quite happy how they turned out that I feel it would be great to share information about the boutique that made them. Till then.. ta-tah! ^_^
