What kind of music to have is an important consideration for any party. For prom, you could go with a DJ or a band, for example. A band can be an exciting experience if it’s the right kind of band for the age group of the guests but hiring a good DJ for the event is usually the best option. Not only is a DJ usually cheaper than a band, but they are also more flexible with what kind of music and which songs they can play, and most are happy to play a longer shift, ensuring that your party has a great soundtrack all throughout.

You could hire a photographer instead, but a photo booth is the perfect choice for a prom party – photo booths are retro and nostalgic, but also fit with the modern style of selfie-photography of the young generations. Your guests will have lots of fun taking photos of themselves in a photo booth and will treasure the photographs from this special event in their lives.

  • Food & Drink

Your party guests will want to have some refreshments throughout the event. What kind of food and drink is suitable for your prom party will depend on the number of guests, the party venue, and the theme of the party. A sit-down meal works well for some parties, while a buffet, or a food truck are great options for more relaxed gatherings. Match the food and drink to the theme of the party as much as possible and provide options for guests to help themselves to some of the refreshments if possible, so that they don’t need to wait if they are thirsty or hungry. You could have ice buckets with different drinks available and some fun and tasty snacks snacks like churros or a popcorn cart, for example.
