Girl’s Prom Dresses – 3 Rules to Consider When Deciding on Your Kid’s Prom Dress

It is nearly Prom time again and every little girl will be getting excited about what to wear to their first big dance. As the prom concept becomes more popular in the UK, there are more girls prom dresses than ever before out there, which of course makes it harder to decide what to buy. However, before you go online to a website that specialises in selling girls prom dresses, there are three important rules to consider when deciding on your kids prom dress:

The most important thing here is to make sure your kids prom dress is not too grown up in style – whilst you want them to look their best, they are still children after all. In America in particular, girls prom dresses are mimicking adult styles a bit too closely, we have all gazed in wonderment at the pictures of certain celebrities’ daughters, where 3 year olds are dressed up like they are 30 years old. As a parent it is up to you to make sure that your little angel looks as cute as can be, but still retains that childish innocence. It is best to avoid thin strappy dresses, or ones with bits cut out, these dresses will make them look older than their years, and that is not the objective.

Another important factor with your kids prom dress is that it is comfortable enough – you do not want them spending the whole time picking at bits, or even worse asking to take it off and put on their favourite pair of jeans. With this in mind, it is also worth getting them to try the dress on and wear it about the house for a while before the big day, to make sure they are used to the feel of being dressed up.

Finally, make sure that your kids prom dress stands out from the sea of black – this goes for girls prom dresses, just the same as is does for adult prom dresses in 2010, bright is the new black. Pick your little one a boldly coloured prom dress, from deep red to brilliant blue, silver or maybe even lame – it will be their night to shine. If your daughter really wants to feel like a princess, what better then a pink prom dress? Whether it has a bold pattern or pretty frills, it will make her look and feel like royalty. Another big trend this year are beads, they will add that extra little touch to any kids prom dress, and will be showing up everywhere in 2010.

Whatever girls prom dress you choose, make sure that they revel in the excitement and thrill of their first prom and make it as fun as possible.
