Don’t stress about your prom. Go to have a good time. It is good to put in the effort to make this event a night to remember but there can be a ton of unhealthy stress and expectations that can show up if young adults put too much pressure on having the perfect night. Your prom is designed to set off your life in a direction where dressing up occurs on a regular basis. It is a moment to celebrate your time in high school. It is a night to enjoy your friends while being dress in the finest attire. Here are three tips for an effective night.
1. Plan and Schedule Early: Just like weddings rarely go as planned, prom nights can feel the pressure of the clock. If your event starts at 7:30 then you should be sitting down to dinner at 5:00. Thinking outside the perfection box and realizing that not everyone is going to prom so they really don’t care that you are in a hurry can eliminate much of the stress.
2. Drink Plenty of Water: Take extra care of yourself the week before your prom. Drink plenty of water and make sure you get good nutrition in your system. Proms are usually the last thing before graduation. The senior year can be stressful and your body can only go so far. Good nutrition and proper hydration will eliminate additional aches and pains.
3. Be Gracious: Gratitude goes a long way when you are stressed out. Stress on this night can be caused by thinking that things should be better, dresses should fit perfectly, hair should be wonderful, the waiter should be nice and so on. You can eliminate the stress on your brain by thanking the people that are helping you get ready. Yes, everything may not go your way that night but many things will. Thank everyone sincerely and enjoy a stress free prom night.

Firefly Event Photography is high volume photography company that helps high school event sponsors add long term value to yearly dances, special events, and graduations.
Currently, professional photography for high schools lacks creativity, is costly, and includes a lengthy turnaround time. These issues have created a frustration from students, parents and sponsors that live in a world where photos are abundant and they don’t have to wait weeks to view and enjoy.
Our unique system and team of photographers provide multiple opportunities for every student to enjoy professional photography without excessive costs. By working with Firefly, our sponsors enjoy a worry free service knowing that the morning after the event their pictures will be ready to view, share and download for free, for life.
The reason I’m so committed to helping high schools is because I’m a former teacher, and I have witnessed the neglect by other photo companies toward schools that didn’t seem lucrative enough for them to show up to their events. I have also witnessed an almost hijacking of images unless the family was willing to pay a large sum of money for a product that didn’t improve even as the technology did.
But when schools bring in firefly, every student feels like the homecoming king, prom queen or the valedictorian.
