Prom Theme Ideas

By 27th July 2015Articles

There are many prom themes ideas for your committee to choose. Deciding on a theme is one of the more important decisions your High School planning committee will make. Just keep in mind with prom themes there is room to add or subtract details. If you remember this, then you should easily be able to pick out themed ideas that a majority of the Junior Class students can agree on.

Prom Ideas

Are you trying to go for something out of the ordinary or keep it more relaxed? Your budget, resources, and creativity will establish the boundaries for any prom ideas. The budget can give you a sense of the location for the venue since these facilities will vary with price. If you are planning a Michigan prom, I recommend choosing a banquet hall on this list that is close in you area to reduce driving time (25 minutes or less). Some venues might make decorating more challenging, while others might spark your creative sense. The more resources your decorating committee has, the better. If you can make a majority of the decorations, or rent pieces at a discounted rate, this will save money and you will be able to allocate funds elsewhere. The disadvantage is that usually hand making decorations takes time and people. Usually this is feasible for high school themes that average 500 students.

Prom Themes

Now if you are brainstorming themes where the guest list is in excess of 1,000, then you will have to choose a bigger facility as well as one exceptional prom. Below are a couple of quick things to consider before we rattle off a list of possible themes ideas.

Are looking for something romantic? Are you trying to match it with current trends? Do you want something mysterious? How much fun can you incorporate into your theme?

High School Prom Colors

There are many colors for you to choose from. You can either have them slightly offset, match your school colors, or have them be completely different. I recommend having your high school prom colors match the theme. This will give you dance more balance and keep things consistent with what students will be expecting. A couple of events based just on colors:

All White Party Theme

Black and White Ball Theme

How to Choose a Theme

Which one should you go with? Do you need more help with how to choose a prom theme? Well, it is important that you avoid doing the same theme two years in a row. Also you should check with local high schools to make sure that you do not accidentally duplicate their ideas (this might create bitter feelings). Make sure your theme is achievable with the banquet facility you have chosen, and that resources for decorating can be found easily. Also order a variety of prom catalogs to give you an idea of what you have to work with. Lastly hyping your high school prom is extremely important (this will help improve ticket sales). Make sure to play the song, and remind students of the theme with any school announcements/pep-rallies. Working with you budget is important for planning a high school prom dance, but you also have to give the students what they want. What is that…. a great send off for the seniors and something that makes your freshmen and sophomores anticipation next years’ prom!
