What most prom-goers don’t understand is that the best way to get the hottest dresses for the prom, is to shop before the new year starts. Dress manufacturers begin sending their wares to prom dresses retailers in October, for the upcoming spring events. Many people have already ordered the most popular dress styles by the time the prom magazines hit the store shelves in December. At Poffie Girls we will have over 1000 dresses by month end!
I know, you’re saying, “My prom isn’t until May! March is plenty early, right?” If you will consider all the different types of colors and styles, yes would be the answer. If you have a certain style of dress in mind, don’t wait to start shopping (especially if it’s a popular style). The most popular styles in dresses will be totally out of stock or backordered up until May or later, when you wait until the end of January to start your shopping.
Many schools have winter formals from December through February, which is another reason popular prom dress styles might be sold out or on backorder long before prom. A lot of them are purchased for these events since they are already available. Additionally, the top U.S. Companies who make prom dresses sell in the United States and all over the world.
Proms that are held early in the year are another reason to shop early. Some areas of the country hold their proms as early as the month of February. Not everyone attends prom during April or May. There have been instances of proms being held in the middle of December!
Take a chance and wait if you aren’t too concerned about styles and available colors for your prom dress. But if you are more particular or you want a style that’s very popular, you’ll want to think about shopping in November or December. If you aren’t yet sure what you want, you can start by looking at Poffie Girls in December and getting an idea of which style you think you might choose. When the perfect style comes your way, go for it!
