Let’s face it. If everything in this world would work out as we wanted, then we would have all we ever dreamed of. However, that is not the case. There’re ups and downs and sometimes not everything goes as planned.
The same goes for your prom night. One of your prom dresses may not arrive on time, pimples and broken zippers are some of the emergencies on prom night.
However, it’s always important to be prepared for any eventuality so when they happen, you’ll know what to do without panicking.
Simple Fixes to Common Prom Night Emergencies
Prom night can cause a lot of nervousness that you may lose sleep or cry. Nevertheless, if you look into the mirror and come across a pair of swollen eyes, don’t freak out. Stay calm and use this simple and fast fix. Take two metallic spoons and place them in a freezer.
After a few minutes, take them out and place them under your eyes to reduce the swelling.
Do this before makeup.
For ladies, this is a serious emergency, but not one without a fix. One of the fixes involves crushing an aspirin and applying it to the affected area. This will reduce the swelling and redness of the pimple.
Another simple fix is to apply an ice cube on the pimple for a few minutes. Repeat the process a few times.
You can also use a concealer if the problem persists or decides to show up during the event.
This is a common problem, but nothing to worry about. If you find yourself in this situation, you can apply candle wax, soap, or smooth graphite on the area.
Matching Prom Dresses
So, you’ve searched for a store which sells cheap prom dresses because you’re on a budget and found one. However, you get to the event and see another person wearing the same exact dress. Looks like you weren’t the only person on a budget!
Anyway, stay calm and approach your “twin” with a light heart. In fact, make the best out of the situation and take some photos with your new-found twin.
Overall, remember the night is all about having fun.
Your parents may not have a car or borrowing their car is not in the picture. If this is the case, renting a car to the venue is the best alternative. Therefore, meet up with your friends and discuss this option.
Afterward, find a car rental service and their rates to figure out the amount each individual will contribute.
Now, what happens when your friends leave you behind with no transportation? In addition, you may get a ride with a reckless driver who puts your lives in danger. Driving under the influence is dangerous and if this happens, then you have no option but to stop the driver and find another car.
This is a common occurrence on prom nights. Breakups happen and it can be painful if it happens to you. However, don’t let this break your mood as well. It’s your night and you shouldn’t let this one experience make up the biggest part of your memories.
Dance the night away and strive to make new friends. Do anything that will bring joy and happiness to you. Your date could also be paying more attention to friends and other activities. This can spark some ounce of jealousy, but don’t let your emotions cloud your thinking.
Step away if you have to.
Life is unpredictable and so is your prom night. However, how you prepare for these unexpected events and emergencies will decide how the night turns out.
The bottom line remains to remain happy and have fun throughout the night despite any eventuality.
