Prom Dresses and Alterations in Blaine, MN (Part 1): Every Girl’s Dream

Going to Prom at Blaine High School?  What to keep in mind while looking for a prom dress and alterations.

Prom is right around the corner, and many young women are starting to look for their perfect dress. What color will the dress be? Stunning neckline or low back? How much bling? Finding the right dress can be daunting, but is definitely one of the most exciting parts of the event.

While looking for a prom dress, it is very important to think about what you’ll be doing the entire night. You don’t want your night ruined by a wardrobe malfunction (take it from me – sophomore year, strapless dress, lots of dancing…you do the math). One common mistake is to have a dress that is too tight. Remember: if you have a mermaid style dress, make sure it’s loose enough that you’re able to walk up and down stairs or get in and out of a car.

So you found your dream prom dress…but it doesn’t fit quite right? Or maybe it doesn’t have enough sparkle? Don’t worry, we can help! Here are just a few things we can do to make you feel confident on your big night:

  • Strap adjustment or adding straps
  • Hem adjustment
  • Bustling the train
  • Adding bust cups
  • Taking the sides in or out
  • Adding rhinestones
  • Jewelry
  • Custom garters
  • And our own special touch: we take chaise lounge photos in our “Chic Cave” for all of our prom clients to keep for free!
