For some, April showers mean May flowers, but for most high schoolers, April means prom is right around the corner. To some guys, prom is just another way of losing some hard earned money, and to others, it is a night of epic proportions.

Nothing will infuriate a girl more than when a guy shows up with a suit that clashes with her dress- so guys, be sure to get this right.”

Renting a tuxedo for prom is not nearly as glamorous as shopping for a dress. Guys are really just looking for something that is going to fit well, that will not break the bank, and probably the most important thing, matches the date’s dress. Nothing will infuriate a girl more than when a guy shows up with a suit that clashes with her dress- so guys, be sure to get this right. It is common practice to even take the date along while looking for a rental tux; that way she can not blame you if she does not like the suit come prom night. For those still looking for places to rent tuxedos, there are some great local options such as Klecker’s Kreations or Dream Day Bridals by Marcia. However, if someone out there is willing to make a bit of a drive, there are some great out of town places like Savvi in Burnsville, or Men’s Wearhouse in Rochester.

Before any of this can happen, there must be the ever so special, promposal. This is different for all guys because it depends on the relationship they have with their date. Some will go big with an array of creative ideas that will be sure to wow the girl, while others just merely talk with their date and comfortably agree to go together. For those that feel the need to impress their date with an amazing display, there is a fairly sizeable amount of pressure to come up with a creative and original way of asking. This becomes more and more difficult with each year that passes because there are less and less options to choose from.

The perspective of prom is different for each individual person, but as a general consensus, guys do not seem to care about prom as much as girls. There are basically two schools of thought, the first being that prom does not really matter and it is more of an expensive way to have fun with friends and the second being that some guys love the idea of being able to get all dressed up and go out on the town for a night full of adventure and good times. All guys fall somewhere along the line between being extremely for it and extremely against it, though, it all depends on the guy and his personal opinions. No matter what a guy thinks though, it is undeniable that prom is right around the corner!

Regardless of the work either gender puts into making a prom night special, it will be a night to remember. Stay safe and respectful over your prom weekend OHS students!
