Standards


Standards


 

 

One of the things that makes this dance different and unique from other proms is the high standards at which those in attendance agree to abide. This formal event requires participants to adopt the dress and behavior guidelines from the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet (a standards guide for all Youth of our Church, given to us by our Prophet).

This means all in attendance must: 

  • Dress modestly and respectfully (See Dress Code section) 
  • Abstain from any alcohol or drugs
  • Use clean language
  • Dance respectfully and appropriately

Dress Code


Dress Code


Dress Code

 

All who wish to attend should avoid extremes in clothing, appearance, and hairstyle. You should look modest and respectful. This is a formal event. In other words, T-shirts, jeans, and tennis shoes won't work. Here are the expectations: 

YOUNG WOMEN

Young women should wear a formal or semi-formal dress of modest length that covers the shoulder and is not low-cut in the front or the back or revealing in any other manner. Scroll down for ideas on what not to wear and ideas for finding the right dress: 

What not to wear: 

  • Sleeveless Dresses
  • Spaghetti straps (dress should have sleeves)
  • Short dresses–length should at least come close to the knee
  • Sheer fabric 
  • Plunging necklines
  • Open back dresses

Dress shopping can be a trial. Here are some suggestions as you plan for a wonderful evening: 

  • Swap or borrow – Do you have a nice dress, but you wore it last year? Trade dresses with a friend or ask around in your Ward or Stake.
  • Sew What? – Sew yourself a beautiful dress or find someone who can help. Consider paying or trading (babysitting?) for sewing services. It may be easier and faster than shopping at local stores for a modest dress! 
  • Get a Facelift...for your dress! – Add a colored sash, jacket, or shrug. This is also a good option if you find a dress without sleeves. Just make sure your shoulders and back are covered and that you keep the jacket on. Scarves, drapes, or shawls are not an adequate cover. 
  • Check online – Buy a dress from an online store specializing in modest clothing. Remember that even a modest-styled dress can be immodest if it fits too tightly, shows cleavage, is too short, or is stretched so your shoulders aren't covered. 
  • A Few Tips (Especially for guests) – Our standards are high because you are a daughter of God! We want to see you looking modest and beautiful at the Prom. This will be a clean, wholesome, wonderful night–an evening to remember! 

YOUNG MEN

Young men should dress in formal wear. Tuxedos are welcome but not required. Come in a dress-shirt and dress-pants with a tie. Suit coats are also a nice way to look dressed up. You should also maintain modesty in your appearance. 

So which will you wear? A tuxedo, or suit and tie? Either way, you will look marvelous! 

You likely have a suit already. If not, ask around! Borrow one form a friend or family member who has your same build. You can also look at a local thrift shop for something reasonable to purchase. You may find a tuxedo! 

If you choose to rent a tuxedo, check online to purchase a used tux online. Often, used tuxedos are cheaper than the cost of rental, and they sometimes even come with shoes, vests, ties, and even cufflinks.
