Prom is one of the most exciting events in everyone’s life. We often forget to make a budget for it which is quite necessary. It is important to establish your budget and figure out how much you can spend on the dress, hair and makeup, accessories, transportation and more. Setting a budget will help you determine the kind of dress you can afford, and your overall affordability for salon services, etc. In this section, we are going to discuss how you can budget your prom.
Budgeting for prom isn’t easy but with a little guidance you can easily budget for your prom. If you have some savings already keep them aside where you totally forget about it. If you don’t have enough savings already then start saving for your prom quite early. The best time is to start saving 6 months ahead of time, so you have enough money for your prom night. If you think you won’t save a lot of money, then you can start working as well. Find a part-time job so you can meet all of your prom event expenses quite easily.
To budget for your prom, take a notebook and a pen and write down all the things you want. Don’t forget to write your wishes as well. You should write each and everything, from dresses, shoes, accessories, hair, makeup, transportation to your prom ticket. Write as little thing as possible because if they are ignored then they disturb the budget later.
Now, after you have written down everything you may keep in mind how much you can afford for each thing. For example, what can be the budget for your dress? Don’t write exact amount, instead write ranges because you can’t find your dream dress of exact amount. Do this for every little thing you have written and add the greater amount to get the idea of estimated cost.
Start shopping for your things 2-3 months prior to prom so you can have a lot of options to buy. Stick to your budget and don’t overspend, because you may regret later.
