Chic Prom Venues

Find one of the best London prom venues with a unique setting to set the perfect mood for the party. Along with party halls, there are numerous other choices in the city like nightclubs, cafes, historic venues, and hotels. Alternatively, you can go off the beaten path and leave an impression on the guests by picking a unique space like a museum, a boat, or a gallery.

Dazzling Decorations

To create the right look, you have to choose the decorations that gel well with the theme. Depending upon your theme colour, you can decorate the hall with balloons, streamers, and scented candles. To give a glamorous and luxurious look, use feathers, satin drapers, and crystal danglers.

Graceful Gowns

Prom Queens, make sure you pick a dress that ticks all the G’s; girlish, glamorous, and graceful. If you want to look slim, choose dark colours like black, green, or royal blue. Complete the look with high heels, the higher the better. Besides, watch some Hollywood award nights and red carpet affairs to take some inspiration from celebrities.

Tasteful Tuxedos

Do not try to completely match your outfit with your date's. If your date’s gown is bold and bright, you can pick a black Tuxedo. If she is wearing a blue dress, complement her dress with a blue boutonniere flower on your tux or a blue bow or tie. Whether you choose a tux or a suit, avoid choosing a bright and shiny fabric. Boys, make sure you tick all the T’s; timeless, tasteful, and trendy. Pick a suitable suit and get ready to be the prom king.
