Prom is one of the few opportunities for young women to dress up and enjoy themselves, as well as show off their prom dresses ranging from elegant and demure to flirty and outrageous. This year, as you shop for a perfectly cute prom dress, you may ask yourself if you should wear a short prom dress instead of the traditional floor length gown. While a short dress is fashionable and looks great in many colors, but not every body style is suited for this type.
Take a look in the mirror and study how you look. Are you petite and short? If so, a short, strapless prom dress may work, especially if you have a slim frame and small bust. With the right pair or high heeled shoes, such an outfit can give you the impression of greater height.
For plus-sized young women, some designers do make short dresses that work to emphasize features of your body that give you a nice shape. If you prefer not to wear a long dress, choose one that comes to just below the knee. You can show a bit of leg and complement your look with some flirty heels.
Short dresses are not necessarily for everyone. However, they are available in exciting styles and colors. They have a unique look that you will not find in classic styles. In addition, they are definitely in keeping with the current trends.

Prom is a rite of passage for many teens, and prom favors are a fine way to remember the night. Sure, you'll have the dress, a corsage and some pictures, but a prom favor is something that you can keep on display forever to remind you of the big night.
Picture frames are some of the most popular prom favors, giving students an opportunity to keep their pictures in a commemorative keepsake. Ask the photographer to print the prom date on the picture itself, and save money by getting a simple frame with no personalization whatsoever.
Candles are useful and many students will hold onto them for years to come. Most prom candle favors come with a complimentary decal design that you can personalize to your school and prom date.
Glassware is especially popular for proms because you can have it etched or engraved, and it never goes out of style, so that it can always be on display. Champagne flutes for toasting with nonalcoholic champagne are functional for the event, and then make a beautiful favor for attendees to take home. Or you could hand out an etched glass bell to each attendee, so that he or she can "ring out" the night and keep it as a memento.
Key Tags Favors

These include acrylic, glittered, metal, plastic, dog tags, and as mint tins. Key tags are extremely practical as well, as many students going off to college will need a key tag for their dorm or car keys.
If your prom budget doesn't allow for expensive favors that you purchase from a supplier, you'll need to be a little more creative with what you give as a favor. you can create a video from the prom and put it onto a DVD for all people involved.

Prom is a great time to dress up, go out with friends, and celebrate high school. Many people say the negative side is that prom night takes attention away from studies and encourages superficial competition between peers at an age when self-esteem is fragile. It can also be the most memorable night of a student's life.
In the United States prom is a formal dance or gathering of high school students. It is typically held near the end of the senior year. It figures greatly in popular culture and is a major event among high school students. High school juniors attending the prom may call it "junior prom" while high school seniors may call it "senior prom".
At senior prom, a Prom Queen and Prom King may be revealed. These are honorary titles awarded to students chosen in a school-wide vote prior to the prom. Juniors may also be honored, but would be called "Prom Prince" or "Prom Princess".
