Choosing your Prom theme is an exciting task and you should dream big, but the reality is that most schools don’t have a huge budget. We’ve put together six cost savings tips from the experts at
Prom Nite on how to stretch your Prom budget.
1. Use Key Props as Focal Points
Choose and order a few key props, like a Lighted Wire Eiffel Tower, balloon arch, or city skyline and design and build other decorations around that focal point.
2. Big Taste for Your Bucks
Hand out consumable Mints or Candy as Prom favors. Tasty treats like these usually come in large quantities at an affordable price, so you get a lot for your money.
3. Go Digital
Order digital invitations for Prom night online. These can be as low as $1.00 each, depending on the website you choose.
4. Super Cool Hot Deals
Look for Hot Deals throughout your Prom Nite catalog, especially on royalty items like Tiaras and Crowns. We offer a large selection of royalty tiaras and crowns, frames, and decorations so you should be able to find a comparable item in the price range that fits your Prom budget.
5. It’s All About Drama
Approach your school Drama Department about using some of their props, decorations or lighting for Prom night. They may be willing to let you use many of those items, especially if you give them a call out in your Prom night Memory Books about the spring play or musical.
6. Be An Early Bird!
The biggest and best tip is simple: plan early! Whatever tips you use or Prom favors and decorations you decide upon, place your order early. You don’t want to be caught at the end of Prom planning season with a rush order and high shipping charges that will put a kink in your budget. Make all your decisions early. It will save you time and money in the long run.
