As prom night approaches and you’re choosing a dress to rock on the dance floor, you may have some doubts about how much you’re going to wear the dress after prom and how much you should spend. Typically, you don’t want to be spending a lot of money on a dress that you’ll only wear once so you need to think about how you will wear it again. Perhaps you’re waiting for your prom night and want some ideas, or you’ve just recently attended prom and need some options on how you can make the most of the money you spent on such a wonderful dress. We know how important saving money is, and also want to promote to everyone that wearing your prom dress again is a great idea. Below we’ve listed some situations in which you can wear your prom dress again. It doesn’t matter if it’s a royal, long prom dress or a cute, short and stylish one!
As a guest at a wedding
Weddings are traditional and formal occasions in which you can wear most classic attire. Wearing your prom dress to a wedding is the perfect idea if you’re looking for a perfect outfit and don’t have the money to buy a new one. This is especially true if it’s a wedding of someone special such as a sibling or your parents. We wouldn’t recommend wearing your prom dress if you’re the bride, but you can re-wear your dress a few times if you’re with different people – this is great if you’re going to a family wedding and then later in the year a friend’s wedding. The more wear you can get out of a dress, the more it’s worth the money you spent.
For a significant birthday (e.g., 21st)
Do you have a special or significant birthday coming up? Wear your cute prom dress as your outfit to this! If your prom was a few years ago, then no one will remember the outfit you wore, but they’ll be excited to see what you choose for your birthday party! A prom dress is chosen with so much thought and care, you have to make sure you use it again otherwise all your energy is just wasted on such a beautiful dress.
At the end of year party (at college)
When you’re in college, you probably won’t even hang with people back from your high school prom. Take your prom dress from high school to your college campus to wear in case you can’t find anything one day. You could take it as a backup because you don’t have to wear it. It’s always great to have another option, you’re sure to love. Plus, it’s a cute outfit for an occasion you typically wouldn’t spend a lot of money on an outfit for. Your friends are sure to be wowed.
Sell it to someone else
Don’t worry if you really don’t want to wear your prom dress again. While it’s environmentally friendly to re-wear old clothing, we understand that sometimes you don’t want too. Instead, why not sell it? There are tons of girls looking for a prom dress for 2019, you’re sure to get someone wanting a try of it. Plus, you’ll make money on it, and they’ll be able to wear a perfect dress for a fraction of its retail price.
