It’s that time of year. Time to show of that Spring Break tan at the upcoming Spring Formal. But it doesn’t have to be that formal at all. It can be as laid-back, stress-free, fun-filled kind-of-night if you let it be! Here are some helpful tips to making this year’s formal a night you’ll never forget!
First things first! Take a reliable date! Only ask someone to formal if you know for a fact that he will boogie with you and have a great time! Nothing can create a worse mood than making plans with someone who backs out at the last minute. Make sure the person has proven to be a reliable source in the past. It could very well be a reliable friend, maybe even someone who isn’t involved in Greek life so he/she can see what the definition of fun really is!
Don’t sweat the small stuff! Sure, for girls the hair, the makeup, the nails, the spray tan, as well as the dress are super important! Of course, it’s just perfect if the couple can coordinate colors in some matchy matchy way. But c’mon, does it really matter when you really think about it? Is it really worth the stress? Of course it isn’t! The most crucial element of a formal is the memories you create with your friends, your date, and your sisters and brothers.
Don’t forget to take pictures of your formal so that you can cherish the memories for years to come! However, please try to LIVE IN THE MOMENT! So what if you are one eyelash short or you can’t seem to find your shoes? Have a magical night without trying to create a perfect night. College day memories, especially those at your favorite formals with your favorite people are fun to make! Pictures don’t need to be perfect but only the memories do!
So, the next time you are stressing over your upcoming formal, relax… Take time to enjoy picking out a dress with friends. If your purse has only change, recycle dresses with friends. Be sure to enjoy the music, savor the food and the fellowship of good friends! Remember, it’s supposed to be fun and not so formal!
