Give Your Students A Night to Remember
Lights, camera… PROM! It’s the night that everyone has been waiting for and expectations around the school are high – so it’s time to plan a prom that your students will remember for years to come.
Form a committee
In order to give students a night to remember, you need to form a prom-planning committee of around 10-15 people who are reliable and enthusiastic about the upcoming event. Appoint one person from the group to oversee the planning process and then delegate roles to the rest of the team. This way, the great plans the committee form will actually get put into action!
Choose your date and venue
One of the first decisions that should be made is choosing a date for the event. Check the school calendars and try to find a day that doesn’t conflict with other school events taking place. Once the date is set, it’s time to secure a venue.
Depending on the budget, you could look for an outdoor or indoor venue in the area. If you don’t have the budget and are instead looking for somewhere to provide a new change of scenery from the school, start the search by finding locations that can accommodate the size of your prom guest list. Then check to see which ones are in your price range and which ones are free to be booked on the day of your event. Remember to find somewhere with enough space to add entertainment to create a fun and exciting atmosphere, and a space that would be easy to decorate.
Book your entertainment
Whilst the decoration of the venue will excite the prom guests, chances are they will need a little more than that to get their party started! Prom is all about the dancing, so prepare to use a large chunk of the budget to book a live band or DJ and an LED dancefloor hire london. Dancefloors provide hours of fun and make for a great backdrop for photographs!
Consider hiring a professional photographer to capture the memories, or a pop-up photo booth. Not only do they set the mood for fun, but it also gives your guests a memento to take home and remind them of their fun night.
Create your refreshment menu
Once the guestlist, venue and entertainment are sorted, it’s time to look at how to provide refreshments for the evening to keep them fuelled. If your budget allows, why not hire a caterer to provide a delicious sit-down meal or add a few sweet and salty snack options for a slightly younger audience!
Get the word out!
After all the planning, it’s time to get the word out by letting your tickets and invitations do the talking. Coordinate the invites with the theme and make sure they include important information including time and location. The more excitement the better, so start advertising your event early for maximum exposure.
