Formal Planning

Think that your formal is easy to plan on your own?

Ask anyone that’s done it before! It’s not as easy as you think.

Comparison: The average formal committee of 5 members working without professional help will need about 100 hours each to plan and execute a decent school formal. That’s almost 3 school weeks of time taken away from critical study time in an important year.

By booking a formal with Prom Night Events, that committee time average drops to around 3 hours each.

Without professional assistance from authorised and experienced professionals, statistically, you have very little chance of your formal going precisely to plan.

Remember – you only get one chance. Still think this is going to be easy?
