BIG CITY PROM THEMES

For your school’s big city Prom theme, the first question you should ask is, “Do you want to set your big city Prom in a specific city?” Of course, you can say no and keep your big city décor and favors more general.

However, if your answer to that question is yes, some of the most popular city-based Proms include Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York City. These cities offer lots inspiration for Prom; for example there are many background graphics you can add to coordinating favors that display the skylines of these particular cities.

BIG CITY PROM THEME INVITATIONS AND TICKETS

Another great invitation idea is the glamorous invite; it’s a great symbol of a fancy night on the town. (Check out the Gown and Tux Invite or Black Stretch Limo Invite.)
