8 tips to remember when getting ready for prom – Knoxville Senior Photographer

Prom time is officially on us in Knoxville, Tennessee.  I absolutely love seeing all of the gorgeous girlies, beautiful dresses and amazing pictures. I love seeing where the different high schools in Knoxville have their proms. Some schools go all out (which I think is totally awesome).

There are so many things that go into creating the perfect prom night. Let’s talk about some of those.


8 Tips to Remember When Getting Ready for Prom 

  1. Make sure you have all of your “getting ready appointments” locked in early. Appointments go fast for prom day – remember there are lots of schools that go on the same day.
    • Nail appointment – get your mani and pedi done a few days before prom
    • Hair appointment
    • Makeup appointment
  2. Make your dinner reservations early. Be sure to think about where your prom is and where you are going to take pictures before you decide on your dinner location.
  3. Book your photographer as soon as you know your prom date. I want to photograph all of the gorgeous couples, but unfortunately, I can’t get everyone in.
  4. Plan your after prom gathering. There are so many fun things you can do after prom.
    • Bowling
    • Group party (obviously parent approved)
    • Bon fire
    • Go eat desert
    • Catch a local band
  5. Don’t forget the boutonniere or corsage.
  6. Be careful with your spray tan. Test it out before the week of prom. All spray tans are not created equal.
  7. Start your beauty regimen the night before
    • Drink lots of water to stay hydrated
    • Eat fruits and veggies
    • Get a full night’s sleep
  8. Pack a prom essentials bag
    • Lip gloss
    • Gum or mints
    • Safety pins
    • Bobby pins, mini hair spray
    • Powder compact with mirror
    • Band aids


I hope this list helps as you start to prepare for prom! Here are some gorgeous images from a prom group from Grace Christian Academy.
