The surfing has begun – My daughter Savannah has begun her hunt for a prom dress after that David’s Bridal had revealed their 2012 Prom dress collection. She quickly headed to their web site and began showing me dress after dress from sophisticated to Cinderella ballroom styles. I realized it was time to go on a mother daughter date night and see in person the selection that awaited us at David’s Bridal.
First we made an appointment with one of their sales consultants – (I highly suggest this). Using a sales consultant gives you the mom the opportunity to sit back and enjoy watching your daughter try each dress on with out having to run back and forth getting a different size or style for her – Instead you get to admire and help her in making the decision as to the right dress for Senior Prom.
We arrived at David’s Bridal and were immediately greeted and whisked away to a dressing room while our personal sales consultant delivered one dress after another for my daughter to try on and model for us – talk about a teenagers dream a little taste of what it might be like one day when she begins her hunt for one of those beautiful white dresses but let’s put that off for another 10 years and stick to shopping for a prom dress.
After trying on nearly 10 dresses , taking zillions of pictures, texting her girlfriends pictures for their votes. We began the elimination process. Asking her what dresses were her favorite, then re-trying on several to decided which she liked best out of similar dresses. Finally narrowing it down to two stunning dresses. Back on the two dresses went , more pictures more texting and the final dress was chosen based on these 4 things:
1. Fit – was it modest and flattering to her body style
2. Practical – Would it be a dress she could wear again to a formal event after High school
3. Style – Was the style so popular that multiple girls would have similar dresses at her prom?
4. Price - was it within the budget we had agreed on
After answering the above questions Savannah made her selection on a beautiful dress that actually is called the 2 in one transforming dress- That’s right she choose 1 dress but gets 2 ways to wear it. She can glam it up with the long layered organza ruffle skirt or keep it short and sweet as a pencil skirt style. All agreed this was a great decision for wearing to her Senior Prom and for future wear.
Have you begun dress shopping for your Daughters Prom or another upcoming formal event – Both My daughter and I suggest you stop into a David’s Bridal and discover the fun mother daughter experience we had – Warning it was a 2 hour event but one full of memories.
Where do you shop for your Daughters dance dresses?
