    Hi there! I'm not sure I'm posting this in the right place, so please feel free to move this to the correct sub-forum if required.

    As head boy of my school, myself and the rest of the head students have been granted with the arduous task of organising what is arguably the most memorable night of our school lives - prom! As a result, we really want this to be a fantastic evening which everyone will enjoy.

    It would be incredibly helpful if you could post your own prom experiences: what was good, what was bad, what could have gone better etc, so we don't end up making some pretty god-awful decisions which I have only heard horror stories about!

    Cheers,

    Good: The photographer and security on the boat were amazing and the music was sexy as hell


    Bad: It was on a boat, so like there were 2 occurrences where people nearly fell of the boat :lol:

    What could have gone better: Get a bigger better boat :lol:

    Everyone I spoke to really enjoyed having a photobooth, I’d suggest that. Not any organisational bad points I can think of off the top of my head, pretty much the only ‘annoyance' was the massive queue for the bar but that’s fairly inevitable.

    ...I was in my bed by 11pm😪. Having no income to afford £9 drinks in a posh hotel and downing vodka in the toilets should be avoided at all costs. But hey being sick on your biology teaches shoes is a great story to hear the next day 😊

    Best: non-stop dancing and great music, everyone getting along with each other and feeling part of the school community

    Worst: Ending, and at the start the dancing was dead but picked up after an hour.

    Miles better than my year 11 prom for sure, it was on a boat and there was booze!

    Best: the dancing and food.

    Worst: the fact that we had it at the school, rather than anywhere nice. My school really was dirt cheap when I was there, though.

    Best best fact: I've lost weight since then, and I need my old prom dress re-sizing!

    Photo Booth was cool but the food was horrendous.

    Oh and they kicked us all out early because too many people were drunk :lol:

    Photo booth
    Photographer
    Dj

    Are pretty essential imo.

    A free drink on arrival is always a good idea. We had Pimm's but it tasted like ****, so if you do that make sure it's good Pimm's.

    For the meal we had like 7 students and 3 teachers to a table which worked out really well.

    Pick a nice venue - I don't think a boat is a good idea. And not in the school Sports Hall.

    That's pretty much it. Make sure the alcohol is flowing and get everyone dancing and you'll have a great night.

    Good: Photobooth
    There were areas where the music wasn't too loud so people can meet each other and talk before going to the main hall/room where the dance floor was.

    Bad: There wasn't a lot to do other than dance which wasn't everyone's thing so a handful of people were just standing there or sitting down in the corner or something.
    Also, there weren't a lot of food or snacks
