Our advice for your prom appointment!
Before your Ypsilon Appointment!
Setting up your prom appointment is simple, and easy! We want you to have the BEST experience possible at your appointment, so these are our 5 top tips from the Ypsilon team to you to make sure you get the most out of your appointment!
1.Do your research
Whether you have been dress shopping with us for every other dance, or this is your first time trying on a formal dress, we are here to help you through every stop of the way. Your dress specialist will be right there to help and assist with every dress, so there is no need to worry if you don’t know what you want! However, it is always fun to have ideas of what you would like to try on! You can look at our Instagram and Pinterest for the perfect dress inspiration!
2. Bring someone you trust!
While you can 100% come alone, or with a friend, bringing someone you trust will make the appointment so much better for you. Having someone there who knows you well and can help support you in making this decision will make your experience all the better! We recommend scheduling a time that works for both of your schedules - (appointments are only 90 minutes, and we have many different time options to choose from) - and coming in together! We promise you will appreciate the support, and it will become such a fun and memorable experience for you both!
3. Give yourself time
At Ypsilon we give 90 minutes to each prom appointment. We want you to find the perfect dress! This means, don’t rush your appointment! We DON’T suggest scheduling your prom appointment at 4 and a dentist appointment at 4:30!! We want your appointment to be stress-free and not rushed! Leave enough time for yourself to make the right decision for you! :)
4. Discuss your budget beforehand
Discussing your budget beforehand is important so you have an idea of what you are wanting to spend! We have beautiful dresses at all price points! Our long prom dresses start at $200, and go up to $800, and average around $400 - $500. The price point all depends upon style, designer, details, and design elements. Below you will see some examples of the different price ranges that Ypsilon has in store right now!

We LOVE this yellow standout dress - and only $300! This dress has a darling 2 piece with a thick lace top, and then this amazing skirt with pockets!
Our average price point in the store is $400 - $450, depending on the dress and details! This shimmer fabric is to die for, and is a dress that falls in this price point!
