Prom is coming up and with that exciting arrival of news also comes major planning and preparation. Here are some important tips and tricks to have the night of your dreams.

Dress Shopping:

Dresses are very important to the person wearing them. They want to look their best and outshine others. Here are some cheap dress places nearby where you can pick up a beautiful new gown.

Glamorous Formal: located at 12155 Jones Rd #200, Houston, TX 77070
Muzzie’s – Fashion with an  Attitude: located at 10300 Louetta Rd, Houston, TX 77070
Panache Bridal & Formal: located at 6978 Cypress Creek Pkwy ste a, Houston, TX 77069
Eesh Formals: located at 15440 Ridge Park Dr, Houston, TX 77095

When it comes to dress or suit shopping, you always want to go for the “hole-in-the-wall” places. They can offer quality dresses (or suits) that are beautiful and at a good price.

Shoe Shopping:

Shoes are a very important part of your prom attire. They complete the look and make you feel even more confident than the outfit alone. Here are some shoe stores that might sell the perfect pair for you.

DSW: any DSW near you. Theirs is a wider, more affordable selection than most basic mall stores.
Shoe Palace: located in Willowbrook Mall at 2000 Willowbrook Dr, Houston, TX 77070
Aldo: also located in Willowbrook Mall at 2000 Willowbrook Mall 1118, Houston, TX 77070
Dillards: located at 7925 Farm to Market 1960 Rd W, Houston, TX 77070 (closest) this is also a very cost effective option.


The makeup you do for prom is what completes the look, hair included. Unfortunately, these two tend to be more costly. Doing your own hair will still look amazing, but we all have that one perfect intricate hairstyle that we just can’t seem to accomplish on our own. Here are some places you can either go to or call to come and do your makeup/hair.

Sephora: located at 7925 Farm to Market 1960 Rd W, Houston, TX 77070 (more on the expensive side, but very well done makeup)

MAC Cosmetics: located at 4000 Willowbrook Dr, Houston, TX 77070
Allured Beauty: located at 10480 Grant Rd, Houston, TX 77070 (this is a more affordable option)

Whether it’s before or after prom, you’ll want to make reservations for a nice dinner you can enjoy with your group. Here are some places where you can just call and make reservations instantly.
