Turquoise Blue Prom Dresses
Proms are wonderful things. They are often a young man and woman’s first exposure to a formal evening. They mark a rite of passage from youth to adulthood. They’re fun, flexible, and they can generate the kind of good memories that will last a whole lifetime. But for many, proms can also be a little difficult to navigate.
Proms are unique among other formal events in terms of protocol, so there are always a lot of questions surrounding them. That’s why we’ve put together a comprehensive Prom Guide. This guide will provide guidance to any soon-to-be-tuxedo-clad-prom-bound wayfarers out there that could use a little help.
Frequently Asked Prom Questions:
A1:The primary physical difference between a tuxedo and a suit is the presence of satin. Typically tuxedos have satin facing on the lapels, buttons, pocket trim, and a satin side stripe down the leg of the trousers. Suits don’t incorporate any satin and usually have either plastic buttons or buttons faced with the same fabric as the coat (aka self buttons.)
As for the difference between “Prom Tuxedos” and “Prom Suits”, as opposed to regular tuxedos and suits, the difference has to do with the message you send.
A prom marks the beginning of a young man’s journey into adulthood and all of the freedom, responsibility, risks, uncertainties, and opportunities that come along with it. As such, his life lesson is rooted in taking care of himself and making his mark on the world, at the same time celebrating the boyhood he’s leaving behind. He should be well groomed and dressed in a tuxedo, but one that reflects his personality and has some boyish flair. That’s why prom’s are so flexible. Everything from classic black tie to bright colors and contemporary styling are completely appropriate.
