Jewelry, light wrap and a handbag are also quite important as the shoes when choosing accessories for the prom dress.
The evening handbag should be small and formal and its important for carrying necessities such as phone, lipstick, toilet paper, handkerchief and wallet. A wrist strap is used to hold the handbag securely when dancing. The ballroom might be air conditioned or its cold outside and thus its important to carry a wrap which consists of either a shrug, light shawl or jacket. The jewelry chosen should perfectly match your dress.

Prom night events are usually the same time in many places and thus your daughter could be in competition with other girls when purchasing the prom dress. Research needs to be done early enough and make a selection no less than a month before the prom as prices rise and selection of dresses shrink consequently.
