Prom, sadly isn’t right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean you can’t begin to properly prepare yourself.

With many issues on how the process of prom dress approval was last year, the administration of Archbishop Ryan High School decided to tweak it a little bit. Now both junior and senior girls do not have to submit their dresses to a provided email address.

Senior, Chelsea Hennison said,“I think this is a much better idea, just because now we won’t be sending pictures of ourselves to an email with an unknown owner.”

This year the administration has just implemented a set of mandated rules, that if not followed completely will result in your removal from the dance, which are:

Male Students

  1. May wear a tuxedo with dress shoes
  2. May wear a suit with button-down shirt, tie, and formal dress shoes
  3. Sneakers or casual boots are not permitted

Female Students

  1. No two-piece dresses will be permitted. Dresses may not have the midriffs exposed.
  2. Dresses may not utilize skin-toned, see-through fabrics, such as (but not limited to) tulle,
    netting, or “illusion,” below the bust line, which attempt to mimic skin-tone. A more contrasting fabric color is allowed.
  3. Dresses may not be cut below the bust-line in the front; this includes cut-outs below the bust line. No excessive cleavage will be permitted.
  4. Dresses may be backless; however, they may not be cut below the natural waist.
  5. Dresses may not have a slit that exceeds 3 inches above the knee.
  6. No pinning will be allowed as an alteration to a dress, if without the pins the dress does not meet the dress code. Fabric inserts must be sewn-in as alterations to the dress.
  7. Dresses must meet the dress code without the addition of a cover-ups (shawls/wraps, sweaters, coats, etc.)

Archbishop Ryan will not reimburse you if your dress does not agree with the dress code.
