So the ball is tomorrow evening and all you ladies (and men!) are probably bustling with excitement at the thought of the big night. Down below are just a few of the things that you might want to bring with you to the ball, obvious or not, that can seriously help you out.
- For Everyone – Your ticket. This is probably the most important thing! Don’t overcomplicate things and stress yourself out by forgetting your ball ticket.
- A cellphone – You always want to have some form of communication on you at the ball. It’s useful for keeping track of the time, and where all your friends are. If worst comes to worst, you’ll always be able to give someone (like your parents) a call to help you out.
- A camera – If you don’t have a cellphone with good photo taking abilities, then bring along a camera in order to take photos so you can look back and remember the night.
- Cash money $$$ – It can help with unseen transport fees, and for any other unexpected situations that can arise.
- For Girls – Something to hold everything in. I recommend bringing a small clutch. Its size is convenient and doesn’t get in the way, yet it can fit all your necessities. A nice clutch can really pull together your outfit.
- Blotting paper – This is especially important for all those with oily or combination skin. You can get hot and sweaty fast, in an enclosed space with lots of people, and having some blotting paper can really help tone down the grease without moving any of your makeup. You can buy some from the Body Shop for around $7, or even make your own from the toilet seat covers you can find in public toilets! (If you want to go there)
- Lip products – You’ll probably want to reapply your lipstick after eating, or just do a quick touchup at some point to make sure it lasts.
- Bobby pins – Great for keeping your hairstyle (in particular updos) in place for photos, especially after dancing.
- Double sided tape – If you’ve got a strapless, backless, or sideless dress, you’ll probably want to keep a bit of Hollywood tape on you, just to make sure your dress never shows more than you want it to.
- A couple of safety pins – If something goes wrong, like if your dress strap breaks, it’s important that you can fix it quickly.
These are just a few of the things you may want to bring along with you on the night, but the most important thing is to have a great time and to enjoy yourself!
