It’s finally your matric ball night ! This is the night to be laughing, dancing and having fun. It is not the night for stress. Here are a few tips to ensure your prom night is stress free.
Pick the right date
It is important to remember that your matric ball date does not have to be anyone you are romantically involved with. When choosing a partner think about things such as ‘will they get along with my friends’, ‘will i have to check on him every few minutes’, because the last thing you want to do is have to babysit your partner the entire night.
It is important to plan your day at least two days before. Yes, you heard me. Two days before. We are all human, we make mistakes. So in case you mistakenly book your hair and make-up too close together, there is time to rectify the situation. Space out your appointments leaving at least half an hour between each, you never know what the traffic will be like that day. All pre-drinks invites should be RSVP’d a well in advance as well.
Go for a make-up trial
To ensure you get the perfect make-up for your Matric Ball, make sure to go for a trial first. Rushing from appointment to appointment is stressful enough, try to avoid disappointment of the wrong make-up.
Get your dress well in advance
There is nothing wrong with finding your perfect Matric Ball dress six months in advance. In the case where you are getting your dress made, allow yourself some time for a plan b, just in case something goes wrong
Most importantly remember to…breathe. It’s time to let your hair down and have a good time with your friends
