Prom Planning Committees

The Prom Planning Committee is probably the biggest and toughest job of all. But, if done right your special night can be planned and executed to perfection!  It depends on the school as to whether the committee is made up of School Officers/Student Council or if a separate Prom Committee will be designated.  Here are the basic subcommittees you will want/need:


Budget Committee - Responsible for keeping all committees on or under budget.


Chaperone and Security Committee - Responsible for securing/hiring Security (If not provided by the hotel/hall) and Chaperones.


Clean Up Committee - Responsible for clean up after the Prom.


Themes/Colors Committee - Responsible for selecting the themes and/or colors for the Prom. This can be done by taking a vote of the students, or by selection of school colors, etc.


Decorations Committee - Find and purchase the decorations for the Prom. This will be done after the themes/colors are selected.


Entertainment Committee - Finding and hiring the DJ or band, as well as any other entertainment for the evening (caricature artists, pianists, etc).


Favors Committee - Can be combined with the Decorations Committee. They plan the favors/gifts that will be used as part of the decorations but taken home by the prom guests.


Fundraising Committee - Responsible for planning and executing the Fundraising events. See below for ideas on Prom Fundraisers!


Menu Committee - Plan the menu for the evening, normally giving two choices for main course. This is done with the hotel or banquet hall or by using an outside caterer, if needed.


Location Committee - Selecting and securing the hotel, banquet hall, reception room for Prom.


Photographs Committee - Responsible for interviewing and hiring the Photographer. Be sure to look at samples, check references, etc.


Set Up Committee - This committee is in charge of setting up the room for the evening. Table placement, DJ booth, decoration installation.


Advertising Committee - This committee is in charge of advertising the evening - making sure everyone knows of the deadlines for buying tickets, what entertainment to expect, etc.


Royal Court Committee - Responsible for organizing the balloting for selecting the Royal Court.
