For many teens, prom night is the biggest night of their young lives. It is a celebration that will surely be remembered for years to come. But what about all the high school seniors this year who are missing out on this memorable milestone due to the COVID-19 pandemic? While they may have to forego a traditional prom night, many teens are coming up with creative ways to still celebrate this rite of passage. Read on for some ideas.
- Dress Up Anyway
- Decorate & Dine
- Virtual Party
- Prom Movie Marathon
That gorgeous dress and fancy suit should not go unused! Make your would-be prom day special by still wearing the outfit you bought. Do your makeup and hair (YouTube has a ton of great tutorials for prom hair and makeup) and have your family members snap photos of you. Share your pictures to social media and encourage your classmates to do the same so you still get to see your friends looking their best!
Find a room in your home and get creative. Break out your holiday lights and string them around for some ambiance. Cover a table in your most elegant table cloth and nicest silverware. Order in from your favorite restaurant and indulge. Video call your date and enjoy dinner together virtually.
Organizing a virtual dance party is a great way to see many of your classmates at once and gives you the opportunity to listen to the same tunes and dance the night away together, while still practicing safe social distancing. This can be done in many ways including Facetime, Facebook, and Zoom.
If you need more prom-inspired fun, check out one of the many awesome coming-of-age movies that are prom themed. Turn one on while you are getting ready for your virtual prom, or check out Netflix’s party extension which allows you to watch a selection at the same time as your friends. Invite your prom date for a virtual movie night if you’d prefer a laid back night for just the two of you.
