For most girls, shopping for a prom gown is the most exciting thing about prom! However, finding the perfect gown can be stressful even for those of us who believe shopping is in our DNA.
Abbelle’s Top Tips to Prom Gown Shopping
Don’t accidentally buy an online fake gown. We all want a bargain, but be afraid, be very afraid of ordering online. You cannot buy a quality prom gown in the UK for under £150 and if it’s heavily embellished then I would say around £400. So if you find a gown online that offers you that dream gown in any colour and size for an amazingly cheap price, believe us when we say, ‘its fake and probably from China or Taiwan. So don't even go there…
Choose something unique. It’s not uncommon to be afraid of somebody else wearing the same gown as you at prom. It’s your one night to shine and stand out from the crowd so be cautious if you buy on the High Street. Don’t get us wrong, we love a high street bargain but every year there’s always a few prom girls turn up wearing that fabulous ‘Coast' or 'Monsoon’ dress but it always ends in tears… Buy from a specialist like Abbelle early, this way you won’t be left with a limited selection as prom quickly approaches. Buy a prom gown from Abbelle and we will guarantee exclusivity, only one gown per school.
Finding the right gown for your body shape. At Abbelle we help you to find a gown that flatters your body type and style and we use our expertise to colour match gowns to your skin type. Whether your a size 00 or a 22+ we encourage all our prom girls to try on different style gowns, from figure-hugging to princess. We want to help you find the gown of your dreams and we will work with you during your 1:1 appointment to help you achieve this. Believe us when we say, if it’s the gown, we will know just by the huge smile on your face and what matters most to us is that you choose a dress that you absolutely love. Whichever style gown you do decide on, just make sure that you feel comfortable in it – after all, you're going to be the one wearing it all night.
Staying on budget. If you're like most girls anxiously awaiting prom, you'll probably be worrying about the price tag. We ask prom girls and their mums to establish a budget – however, this normally goes out of the window once you start trying on gowns. It’s sometimes hard to stick to a budget if the gown you fall in love with costs twice your budget. With this in mind, we offer a ‘layaway’ service on gowns over £300. It’s a simple interest-free option to pay for your gown over a few months rather than up front. Call Abbelle on 07889 765 789 for more information.
