My First Prom Experience: Enchanted Elegance at Dusit Thani Mactan

As a Grade 9 student at Einstein School Cebu, I had been eagerly awaiting our prom night, the Enchanted Elegance Promenade 2024 at Dusit Thani Mactan. Prom is one of those milestone events that marks a significant step in our high school journey. For many of us, it’s a night to dress up, dance, and make lasting memories with friends. Here, I’ll share my experience, some helpful tips, and a few highlights that made this night unforgettable.

The Excitement Leading Up to Prom

The excitement started weeks before the actual event. From shopping for or renting the perfect prom dress to planning my hairstyle, every detail mattered. My friends and I spent countless hours discussing our outfits, looking for inspiration on social media, and even made a trip to the mall to find some accessories. This anticipation was half the fun, building up to the magic of the evening itself.

Tip: Start planning early! Whether it’s finding the right outfit or coordinating with friends, giving yourself plenty of time will help reduce stress and make the experience more enjoyable.

Choosing the Perfect Outfit

Finding the right dress was a journey in itself. I wanted something that reflected my personality while fitting the theme of Enchanted Elegance. After visiting several stores and trying on numerous dresses, I finally found “the one” – a flowing, very light purple gown with delicate beadwork that made me feel like a princess. Accessories were equally important, and I opted for a simple yet elegant necklace and a pair of sparkling earrings.

Tip: When selecting your prom outfit, choose something that makes you feel confident and comfortable. Don’t be afraid to try on different styles to see what works best for you.

The Venue: Dusit Thani Mactan

Dusit Thani Mactan is a breathtaking venue, perfect for such a magical event. As soon as I arrived, I was captivated by the elegant decor. The venue was beautifully decorated to fit our Enchanted Elegance theme, with twinkling fairy lights and elegant floral arrangements creating a fairy-tale atmosphere. The ballroom was spacious, allowing plenty of room for dancing and mingling.

Tip: If you have the opportunity, visit the venue beforehand. Familiarizing yourself with the location can help ease any nerves you might have about the event.

Making an Entrance

Making an entrance at prom is a special moment. Arriving with my friends, we were greeted by a flurry of cameras and compliments. The atmosphere was buzzing with excitement as everyone showed off their stunning outfits. Walking into the ballroom, I felt a mix of nervousness and exhilaration, ready to embrace the night ahead.

Tip: Plan your arrival with friends. Whether you arrive in a limo, a fancy car, or even just together, arriving with a group can make the moment even more special.

The Magic of the Night

Once inside, the night truly began. Before the program started, we prayed, sang the national anthem, and listened to some reminders from the MC. The DJ played beautiful songs, and the dance floor quickly filled up. There’s something magical about dancing with friends, laughing, and letting go of any worries. One of the highlights was the prom court announcement. Watching my peers receive recognition for their contributions to the school was heartwarming and added to the night’s sense of unity and celebration.

Tip: Don’t be afraid to dance! Prom is the perfect time to let loose and have fun. Whether you’re a great dancer or not, just enjoy the moment.

Capturing Memories

Prom is all about making memories, and capturing those moments is essential. The venue had several photo booths set up, allowing us to take fun and candid shots with our friends. My mom took a photo with me and my baby sister before the event, as parents were not allowed inside the ballroom. My parents patiently waited outside. I took selfies and group photos to cherish and look back on in the years to come.

Tip: Take lots of photos! Years from now, you’ll want to look back and remember the fun you had. Don’t forget to take some candid shots too – sometimes the unplanned photos are the best.

Prom Awards

Towards the end of the evening, prom awards were given out. Categories included Best Dressed, Prom King and Queen, and Prom Prince and Princess. Luckily, my best friend Leona was chosen as the Prom Princess. Congrats, girl! It was exciting to see my friends win and be recognized for their efforts. The crowning of the Prom King and Queen was a highlight, adding a traditional touch to the evening.

The After-Party

After the official prom ended, we changed our outfits, and I went home with my parents. Some of my classmates stayed at Dusit Thani because they had checked in. Unlike my classmates’ families, we did not stay there because my brother had an early morning class the next day that he needed to attend.
