Prom Season!

It may only be January, but many girls are already preparing for one big night that will take place on May 6 for John Glenn students. This night is prom, the dance that people become excited for months before it's time. Girls have begun the somewhat stressful process: dress shopping.


Dress shopping can take a toll on girls for many reasons. It's hard to find a dress that fits you perfectly in multiple ways. You need the right color, the right price, the right size, the right sparkle, and the right feel in a dress. While enduring hours of trying wrong choices and almost perfect choices, you want to be in the right atmosphere.


One store that helps you through this process is Jillian’s Formal Wear. This store is located at 3935 Northpointe Dr, Zanesville, OH 43701. Jillian’s is a great place to find the perfect dress to make your prom night even better. One review says, “They were all beyond helpful in finding my dream dress!! Not one but four women helped me and did everything they could to make me comfortable and get what I needed. If you're looking for a dress, I recommend this place!”


Another store to look at is Henri’s Cloud Nine located at 8597 Sancos Blvd, Columbus, OH 43701. Henri’s has beautiful dresses to choose from and a large variety to compare different styles. On their website you can view what they have to offer and see if they are the right fit for you.


Universal Bridal & Prom is another great option when considering where to look for your prom dress. Universal is located at 56310 US-36 West Lafayette, OH 43845. Universal has an array of designer dresses to offer as well as accessories to go along with the dresses. Their staff will help you find dresses that meet your criteria, whatever it may be.

If you don't feel like going to these shops and having to try on dress after dress, online shopping might be the best option for you. You can search through thousands of dresses without ever leaving the comforts of your own home. PromGirl is a site that can offer you more than 5,000 dresses to choose from. Their website allows you to choose your preferences and then shows you all the dresses that match your criteria.


Another great website to look at is Simply Dresses. Simply Dresses offers many designer dresses that could be perfect for your prom night. The dresses are easy to search through and also allow you to enter your own preferences. If none of these options seem viable or are too expensive, there are still plenty of other ways to get an amazing dress that is affordable.


Prom can be expensive. The hair, the nails, the makeup and the dress starts to add up fast leaving many of us with empty pockets. A lot of people wear their dress once and that's it. Some girls at our own John Glenn High School are selling their dresses. Seniors Karly Fahey and Bailey Beisser and juniors Brooke Wilkins and Breanne Wilkins are all selling their prom dresses. You can contact them and see if their dress could be the one you're looking for.


There are multiple resale dresses being sold through multiple groups on Facebook as well if you're looking for something at a lower price. Instyle in Cambridge has many dresses marked down to offer. The owner is looking to retire after this season and wants to get rid of all her inventory. That would be a good place to look for a perfect dress at a perfect price.


Though getting a dress for prom can be stressful, hopefully learning about all of these options can make the process much smoother.
