TIPS & more....
Meeting you date’s parents?
Is this the first encounter of the parental kind? Don’t worry. Just extend your hand, make
eye contact and say,” Hi, my name is _____.” Relax and have fun. Always tell her parents
that it was nice to meet them – that’s a great way to make a good impression. Be very polite,
sit up straight and be respectful. You’ll look great in your prom tux. Oh, don’t forget to
get a clear answer of when they expect their daughter home, angry parents are not a
good way to end such a wonderful night.
girls like flowers!
Go to your local florist as soon as you know the color of your date’s dress so you can
order her corsage (in matching colors). Receiving a corsage from her date is one of the
things a girl looks forward to with her prom experience. Ordering ahead of time assures
you will get beautiful flowers that will impress your date with your thoughtfulness.
Corsages can be worn two ways, on the wrist or pinned to the lapel. Ask your date which
she prefers with her dress style before ordering.
Limo – What do I tip?
In a large city, a limo driver should be tipped 20% (in a smaller city the tip can be 15%) of the
total bill. If you are paying when you reach your prom destination, add the tip to the fare.
If you are being billed, ask for the tip to be added on to your bill. Too complicated? Just
take your usual ride to the prom, but be sure to wash it and clean out the inside… your date
won’t appreciate empty food wrappers stuck to her fancy prom dress.
Either way, limo or
your own ride, remember to always open the door for your date
close the door behind her. Gentlemanly manners never go out of style and it makes her
feel special, just what you want her to feel on this special night.
Do yourself a monetary favor. Check out the menu of your chosen restaurant before
prom night so there are no surprises or late-night dish washing incidents. Just keep your
budget in mind when picking “the place”… it won’t impress your prom date if you have to ask
her for help picking up the tab.
Call 2 to 3 weeks before the prom to guarantee a
reservation, then call a few days before
the Prom to confirm your reservation. Remember, ladies are always seated first and
order first. During meals using all the manners your mother tried to teach you will mean
very much to your date, it will show her you respect her. Be sure to have enough money
left to tip the waiter!
Is this your first time wearing a tuxedo? For many it is! Have confidence in the opinion of
The Party Pit staff, your tuxedo provider, we have helped many others look great for
special events like Prom and weddings. We want you to be comfortable and happy with
your tuxedo experience so be sure to ask any questions you have or voice any concerns.
You are a walking advertisement and your happiness is important to us.
Using studs and cufflinks can be tricky so be sure to ask us how to use them if you are
unsure. That goes for any part of your tuxedo if this is your first time. Tuxedos do not fit
like your every day clothes and therefore may seem to “fit funny” and not look like what
you are used to wearing. There are many styles available to fit your taste and style, just
Always be sure to wear dress socks with your tuxedo. White socks with ivory and white
tuxedos and black socks with gray and black tuxedos, sweat socks are a major no-no with
a tuxedo! Also, wear an undershirt beneath your dress shirt because you will want to
relax and take off your jacket and vest when you begin to dance.
