Haven’t Got Your Prom Dress Yet? Here’s Where to Go

Cindy Ciotta, Managing Editor

If you don’t already know, prom is Saturday April 27th at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in Fort Worth. It’s right around the corner, and if you don’t have your dress yet, I hate to break it to you but you are a little behind. But honestly, I can’t blame you. Senioritis has hit all of us, and it will show up in different forms. So don’t feel too bad, but you still need your dress! This story is for you, my favorite procrastinators. I have placed locations in order of most to least expensive for your convenience.


Terry Costa: This store’s nearest location is in Dallas, so it’s a bit of a drive but certainly worth it. They have popular brands such as Sherri Hill, Ellie Wilde, Morilee, La Femme and more. Prices here will range from about $200 to $900 or more. They have a huge selection, helpful staff, and an enjoyable ambiance. It’s a great experience shopping for your prom dress with your mom here.


Whatchamacallit: This store has nearby locations both in Fort Worth and Dallas. They carry Sherri Hill, Jovani, La Femme, Tarik Ediz and more. Because they carry some of the same brands this store will have a similar price range as Terry Costa, anywhere from about $200 to $900 or more. The staff here is also friendly and very helpful.


Shimmer Boutique: This store is located in Lewisville. They carry Mac Duggal, Jovani, and other brands. Prices will likely not exceed $600.


Camille La Vie: Close by located in Grapevine Mills Mall, this store can save you gas money and dress money. Prices range from $50 to about $500. Their dresses here will be Camille La Vie Brand.


If none of these places work out you could always stop by a department store such as Nordstrom, Saks Fifth, or Dillards. I would recommend going sooner rather than later as correct sizes will likely be hard to find, and Alteration Locations normally need about a week to tailor prom dresses. Best of luck in your shopping, I hope this article helped!
