Schools Out! Plan Your High School Prom in Great Yarmouth

It’s quite a task to organise a big event like a High School Prom so here are a few pointers to help…


  1. Form a Prom Night Committee

Get together a small team of people to help plan your prom night. A group of about 6 -10 reliable and enthusiastic individuals works best. You’ll need to appoint a leader of the committee who can oversee the planning process and delegate roles to the rest of the prom committee so that all your great ideas can be put into action!

Have your treasurer work with the team to create a budget for the school to approve. Really think through the details and leave a little wiggle room for those unforeseen expenses that always seem to pop up at the last minute!


  1. Choose Your Date and Venue

One of the first decisions your committee should make is choosing a date for your event. Check your calendars and try to find a day that doesn’t conflict with other school events and examinations and also works for the majority of your guests.

Once you’ve set the date, it’s time to secure a venue. Look for a venue that is large enough to accommodate the size of your guest list. Next, check to see which ones are in your price range and are free to be booked on the day of your event. Remember to find somewhere with a dance floor and space to have extras such as a photo booth. Make sure the venue is happy for you to come in to decorate with your chosen theme too.


  1. What’s the Theme?

Here’s where the fun really begins!

You need to come with a theme for your Prom Night so that you can build the plans for your event around it. You may opt for the more traditional black tie theme or festive like Carnival Night, Masquerade Ball, or Hollywood Glamour the options are endless! It’s a difficult task trying to please everyone, so you might decide to get your fellow students to vote between 2 -4 various themes and find out which one gets people most excited!


  1. Entertainment to get the Party Started

Proms are all about the dancing, so prepare to use a large chunk of your budget on booking a great band or DJ and tell them what type of music you want played.

It’s also great to have an unexpected surprise up your sleeves – something that ties in with your theme perhaps!



  1. Capture the Moment!

Consider hiring a photographer to capture the memories everyone will be making at the fantastic event you’ve put together. Another fun addition to take your prom to the next level is having a photo booth! As this can be quite a hefty added expense, get the art department to create a large fake picture frame, buy some cheap props, accessories and wigs and make a DIY photo station.


  1. Food and Drink

Buffets are the perfect choice for a Prom Night, as there is bound to be something there for all tastes (even the very fussy among us). Or, you may want to consider a BBQ as most Proms are in July.

Dancing is thirsty work so you should make sure the bar is well stocked with drinks to quench your thirst – Speak to them in advance if you’d like them to order in something special or prepare some non-alcoholic cocktails. If there’s enough budget an arrival drink is a lovely touch, such as non-alcoholic Prosecco.


  1. Get the Word Out!

This is going to be the best prom your school has ever seen, so let the tickets and invitations show it! Coordinate them with your theme and make sure they have all of the important info like time and location. The more excitement the better!

10 Top Tips for Brides

10 Top Tips for Brides


Wedding Love Great YarmouthGetting married is a very exciting experience but can also be very daunting too!

So, to help make for a stress-free run up to your big day, we’ve put a few top tips together…

1 – The very first task is deciding how many guests you want to invite as this determines the budget and size of the wedding venue. Are you looking for a lavish celebration with all your friends, workmates and family or is something small and intimate more your style?

2 - Focus on finding the best wedding dress silhouette for you. Don’t get pressured into deciding on a dress that you are not completely convinced about. Try on as many dresses as necessary and choose a style that flatters your shape. When choosing a dress think of a timeless gown instead of a moment’s trendy one. Of course, it has to look stunning but be wary of choosing a gown that might get uncomfortable after a couple of hours!

3 – Don’t put your wedding shoes on for the first time on your wedding day – you could find they’re pinching your feet before you’ve even said ‘I do’! Wear them around the house a few times so they get broken in a little and mould to your feet.

4 – If you’re getting your make-up and hair done for the day, make sure you have a trial run first. Avoid having your make-up done in a way that’s not your style! Choose light, natural shades which won’t look too harsh against a white or ivory wedding gown

5 – When selecting the menu for your wedding breakfast, go for a choice that you and your partner really love. Everyone’s tastes in food are extremely varied, and if you try to keep everyone happy, you’ll end up going round in circles!

6 – Make sure you have a meeting with your photographer well before the wedding to make sure you get all the shots you want and who is to be included in each session. Also, have a contingency plan if the heavens open…

7 – Have a couple of big golfing brollies to hand (a job for the best man or ushers) to shield you and your groom from wet weather or hot sunshine.

8 – Get the best man, or someone you trust to be on hand to coordinate the set up of the wedding reception venue on the day and delivery of floral displays, the cake, balloons and decorations and chair covers. Alternatively leave this to a well organised wedding coordinator.

9 – Take the week of before your wedding. The last thing you want is to feel rushed off your feet and tired before your big day. Book in a pamper session with a relaxing massage to chill you out!

10 – And, finally, enjoy every minute of your day - don’t let little things upset you. It should be a day that you and your future husband will remember and treasure for the rest of your lives!
