Ball gowns are reserved for the most extravagant white tie affairs and social occasions. Traditionally ball gowns are full skirted with a fitted top. Ball Gowns have been around for centuries with numerous modifications to the style. The most common versions are cut off at the shoulder with decollete necklines. Ball gowns are typically worn with a stole which is a formal shawl made of expensive fabric. The ensemble is usually adorned with the finest jewelry and gloves. If "state decorations" are to be worn, they are attached to a bow which is then pinned to the chest. Married women wear a tiara, if they have one, that compliments the design of the Ball Gown.

Adding Length: Our Prom dresses usually fit the average height of 5’8”. All of the models shown in our photos are between the heights of 5’8” and 5’10”. Taller girls may want to consider doing the following: Making their prom dress a high low hem. High low hems are just as popular as floor length dresses. High low hems are shorter in the front (9” or more off the floor) and low in the back (how the dress normally fits). Another option would be to wear flats instead of heels; which would be more comfortable as well. You could also purchase a shawl or buy additional fabric to add to the bottom of the prom dress.
Makeup is a huge part of your prom ensemble. After selecting your prom ball gown it is beneficial to plan out what type of makeup style would work best on you. Whether you are going for a more natural sun kissed glow or an intense Smokey eye, be sure to practice before the big day. By practicing your makeup style you will become more confident in your abilities as well as becoming more proficient allowing you to spend more time taking pictures with your date rather than getting ready.
