I know my readers come from many parts of the world and we've all had or have different schooling cultures. But one thing I'm sure we can all agree on is the stress of finding the perfect prom dress! Fret not, I have a list here that will help you pick out the perfect dress!
Take the stress off of prom dress shopping and only go for the best shop. The right one will save you a lot of time, hassle, and money.
The idea of shopping for the perfect prom dress sounds like a lot of fun but not until you find yourself at the nth boutique with still no dress to show up for it. That would never happen if you were with the right prom dress shop. 

Sometimes, it’s not about who designed the dress whether it’s Sherri Hill, La Femme, or Jovani or what style it is whether it’s mermaid, two piece, or ball gown prom dresses. It matters more where you bought your dress from. The right store can have the right dress for you as well as provide you with quality service.

If you are planning to take the smart route in selecting the right prom dress shop instead of the right designer or style, we provide you with a checklist of the qualities a great prom dress store should have:

1. Huge selection of quality dresses
Hopping from one boutique to another is fun the first few times. After the 10th boutique, you’re going to want to just get it all over with. With the right prom dress shop, you don’t have do that as they would already have most of what you are looking for. Styles, designs, colours, prices. They have it all in a wide range.  All that’s left for you to do is try on the styles that you like and once you find the best one, you are good to go.

2. Fair return and exchange policy
A great prom dress store will understand that the dresses their customers order may not always be in the size that fits them. It happens. Weight fluctuation is a normal part of the physical development in teenagers. If the dress that you ordered is a size too small or too big, you should be able to return it and get full store credit or have the dress exchanged for another one. It’s important to read the store’s return and exchange policy so you know what you are entitled to in case you don’t like the dress or it does not fit you.

3. Prom Dress Registry
A registry is a record that a boutique keeps to ensure that no two girls will show up to the same prom event in the same dress. The good news is that more and more prom dress stores are becoming aware of this dilemma and is making sure that they keep their registry as updated as possible to ensure that this doesn’t happen to their customers. Find out if your prospective prom dress shop has a registry. If they don’t, you’re better off finding a different store. You don’t want to risk playing twinsies with another girl on this most special night of your high school life.

Bonus: Price Match
This is a special feature only applies to boutiques that have dresses available at their online store too. A price match is when an online store is able to match the lower price offered by another store that’s also selling the same dress (see details at If you find a lower price for a non-sale dress, the store will match that price. 
Dress shops like the Prom Dress Shop has this feature in their store and gives the customer more buying power. Read through the rules and exceptions of this policy to ensure that you qualify for a price match. 
Make sure these qualities are present in the store you are planning to purchase your prom dress from. You’ll be glad you took the time to do so. Can you think of other features every good prom dress boutique should have? Let me know in the comments!
I hope this list has been useful to you. If you like it, don't forget to share the post to your fellow girlfriends and help to reduce their prom shopping stress too! Most importantly, find a dress that reflects who you are and HAVE FUN! :)
