My Debs Experience

Saturday, 7 September 2013

In Ireland, we have a Debs. It is a similar concept to Prom in the UK and America accept we only have one. This is held usually around the September or October after you leave school. It is the last night that you will get to be with all of your school year group and I know that I had looked forward to mine for a very long time.

When I was younger I always was looking up Debs dresses online and fascinated with the whole concept of your debs. It looked so fun to me, dressing up, getting your hair and makeup done and going off in a limo or party bus where you go off and only arrive back at 7 o' clock the next morning!

As I am in sixth year (which is my last year before I go to a university) my personal debs is not until next September, but a friend asked me to accompany him to his debs and I jumped at the chance of going!



So the search for the dress started.. My mam dragged me to shop after shop numerous times but I could not see one I liked! I was going for something not too bright in colour and not too fussy!! But after looking online I finally found the perfect dress!

I am in the right of the picture btw! I got my dress from the website Fanny Crown (http://www.fannycrown.com/original-v-neck-long-champagne-evening-dresses.html) and including shipping it was approximately €170 including shipping which I thought was pretty reasonable! I also thought the service from this website was very good, it only took a few days to be delivered, which is always a plus, and when it came it was in lovely packaging! I got my bag in Penny's/ Primark for only €7.


For hair and makeup I would strongly recommend going for a trial with the hairdresser or makeup artist before arriving on the day. I was happy with my hair and makeup in the end, it's just I asked for my hair to be in much looser curls, almost waves and it didn't turn out that way!

Anyway I have to say, any person contemplating going to their own debs, take my advice and go! It can be a terrible expensive process but it can be as expensive as you want it to be! I honestly had a great night and I think it will be even better next year for my own debs as it will be with all my friends.

So I will leave you's with some other photos of my debs night and if you have any questions be sure to leave them in the comments below!
