Crazy Prom Themes for Teenagers to Spice up Their Party

Teenage is a period marked by unceasing enthusiasm and curiosity. Teenagers are restless, always searching for some novelty. Therefore, when it comes to prom, modern teenagers want to pepper things up with some adventurous ideas rather than having an Evening in Paris. If you are looking for some extremely exciting ideas for your prom at our exclusive venues, then read the themes given below.

Alien Party

Teenage is filled with curiosity and what better theme to arouse their curiosity than an Alien party. Decorations can include everything from slide show of planets to walls with the pictures of the aliens. How about placing a fake alien ship in the venue? It will spice up the things even more. Besides, there are plenty of unusual prom venues in the city, where you can find a quirky ambience to suit the theme of your party.

Villain Party

There is something about villainous characters that make them quite fascinating. No doubt, teenagers love them a lot. Then, why not make it the theme of your party? Ask your guests to dress up as their favourite villain character. Characters can be from comic books, myths or from movies. You can also ask them to fake the accents, particularly if the villain is from a movie. This will add quirkiness to your party.

Silent party

The craziest party theme you can have. A silent party is like a normal party except for the fact that you have to put a tape on your mouth, not literally. This type of party can be quite creepy in nature but it is sure to be an amazing one. Guests can dance but without music, their faces showing all the emotions. Who knows there may be a certain “Mr Bean” in your friends circle? This party will bring out the best out of you, but silently.

Teenage parties are all about doing something unusual and pushing the limits. Use these creative party themes and let the party roll with a tinge of oddness to it.

5 Reasons You Should Never Miss Prom

Thinking of the prom king and queen contest? Freaking out about how to ask your date? Wondering whether all this fuss is worth it? Relax! We have the answers for you. After Hollywood blockbusters stereotyping prom, preparing for prom seems like havoc. All this mayhem literally eliminates the fun students can have. It’s not mandatory to go to prom but you still should. And we give you five reasons to do that.

You Get to Buy a New Dress

When did you last purchase a beautiful silky tea-length dress? You don’t remember, right? This is your excuse to buy a dress wearing which you’ll feel like a princess.  If you miss this chance, the next time you’ll get to buy a beautiful dress is, when you’ll get married. And you don’t want to wait that long, right?

You’ll Have Memorable Pictures

Remember the last time you strike a pose? Was it with your little brother wearing matching pajamas or was it wearing the ugly sweater during Xmas party? This is your time to take the centre stage and let the world know of the red-carpet star in you. Dress up to the nines and strike poses like a star. These photographs will take you down the memory lane every time you’ll see them. 

You Don’t Want to Regret Not Going!

Prom is not a one-day event. Even after it’s over, everybody will be talking about it on Monday. And you definitely want to be a part of the stories. It’s better to be a participant than a silent observer. Unless you can time travel like the Men in Black, you can’t step back in time to attend your prom.  Once gone, it’s gone forever. You should never miss your Casino themed party anyways. If you don’t get the feel of Vegas, you have the option to leave early with your date or group and go bowling or enjoy a late night eat out.

You Can Stay Out Past Midnight

This is one of the few days when your parents would easily allow you to stay out in the wee hours. So why not make plans and meet your friends at a 24-hour open restaurant, a bowling alley, or enjoy a Limo ride. (Don’t drink if driving).

You’ll Have Stories to Tell

What if your date goes to prom with another one? What if you fall off the dance floor? Shun-off these nasty thoughts and think that at least you’ll have some stories to tell at the end of the day. Things that look embarrassing to you now will turn out to be humorous incidents. These will work as ice-breakers when going to college for the first time or for that awkward first date when you don’t know what to say.

So don’t think too much and keep these five things in mind before you decide to miss the prom. It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Potential Questions to Ask Your Prom Venue

A prom organiser signed a contract with a venue for only “££££” and later discovered that the venue only allows disposable tableware, the event facilitator is not available on the day, and the coordinator is not replying to emails and texts.  Who wants to be in such a situation? Right, nobody! Venue will eat up most of your budget, so it is important to make thoughtful decisions. As an event coordinator, I want to share a few questions that you must ask your venue before making the final booking.

Do you have an Event Facilitator?

Hiring an event planner is similar to hiring an assistant, friend, and manager all wrapped up in one. You need someone to ensure that all the little things at your wedding, from linen to flower arrangements, are in place. And most venues provide event coordinators for the day. Confirm his attendance before you sign any contract and get a list of all his responsibilities (in writing). And also ask if you have to pay additional fee to hire him or the service is includes in the rental fee. Even if the venue pays him, make sure to offer a tip, from £100 to £300.

How Many Events Will You Host on the Day?

Make sure to ask this question as your party may be in the a.m. and you’ll have to rush if the venue has an afternoon party. And if your party is later in the day, you’ll get a messy venue and a tired staff. And also make sure what space will not be accessible to you. Imagine you have a party indoor and there’s another one going in the courtyard, and you guests can’t go out. Needless to say, if such is the situation, move on and find another venue.

What’s the Fee and What All It Includes?

Some London venues will charge £2000 to hire the space only and some may include the decoration, table, and linen as well”. Don’t assume anything on your part. You may have to pay additional service fees on top of the food bill which can range from 15-20%. Ask for what all is included in the cost. You might be being charged for something you don’t need. If you’re not serving alcohol, there is no need for security or see if there’s any crowd control fee for less than 50 people. If you’re serving alcohol, ask whether the venue offers cash bar or hosted. Also, ask what the standard tipping protocol is.

Is There a Room to Get Ready?

If it’s a wedding reception, there has to be a room for you to get ready. Lots of venues have a special room but you need to confirm beforehand and ask whether there is an additional fee for it. If you’re having a destination wedding, consider renting a hotel with wedding space for hire. This way, you’ll get some discount on rooms as well as the venue.

Is there a Parking Space and Will Guests have to Pay for Valet?

If you’re having a city wedding, makes sure that there’s enough space for parking. And since many venues have onsite parking lot, it’s wise to ask whether they are planning to charge your guests or is it free? If you don’t want your guests to pay, you can pay them beforehand.

Is the Venue Accessible?

Even if most of your guests are able, still it’s courteous to look for a disabled-friendly venue.  An elevator, step-free entrance, hand-rails, seating area, and accessible bathrooms will be enough.

How Many Hours I can Use the Venue for?

Half-hour ceremony, an hour for dinner, cocktail hour, and two and a half hours for dancing, cake-cutting, and toasting, a five hour wedding is standard. And other parties and events usually last for 2-3 hours. But make sure that the venue offers enough time before the event to decorate and make other arrangements. The venue may have the policy to shut at 11pm. The caterer may need an extra hour before the event to set up. Venues may charge an extra £500 per hour if you continue the celebration longer. Make sure to get the time written in the contract. You don’t want to feel like rushing from the moment you enter the hall.

Are the Decoration and Linen Provided?

If the venue provides a set of chairs, tables, and linen required for your number of guests, nothing is better than that. And if it’s included in the cost, it’s the cherry on the cake. But if not, you’ll have to rent these items. It may sound simple but someone has to be there at the site to meet the rental company, unpack the items, set them up, clean them later, and repack after the event is over.

Can I Hire My Own Vendors?

If you don’t like the caterer or DJ in the list of vendors the venue works with or it sounds too expensive, ask them if you can hire your own vendors.Would you hire a photographer without looking at his portfolio, then why to book a venue without knowing who will cater your event or handle the flower arrangements? Ask whether these vendors will be easily accessible to answer your questions and consider your likes and dislikes.

Can I Bring My Own Booze?

While most of the venues don’t allow this, some still do in London. See what the venue will charge for alcohol. And if it surpasses your budget, you can get the alcohol yourself. Although you’ll have to pay corkage fee for opening and serving every bottle, yet it’s worth considering, as you’ll most probably save a few bucks. Venues can also mandate who will be the bartender. And it’s best to have a profession bartender recommended by the venue.
