Consider a wedding. There are custom clothes to be fitted, limousines to be booked, hair, makeup, nails, shoes, accessories and a variety of other personal things to be attended to.
Then there's the venue, dinner, entertainment, logistics, decor, crowd control, parking, seating allocations, invitations, floor service, dance floors, lighting and again a host of things that will be needed by the attending guests.
The average wedding has 120 guests, 6 members of the bridal party and takes a year to plan properly.
Now consider that precisely the same things need to be organised for a School Formal, except there are some scary differences. Firstly, the clothes, limos, hair, nails, shoes and accessories don't only apply to the 6 members of the bridal party, they apply to EVERYONE attending.
Then consider that the average School Formal has over 200 guests, and you won't have anywhere near a year to plan it.
There is a plethora of legal liability issues and legal compliance issues. It's by far the most heavily regulated section of the event management industry.
Without professional assistance from authorised and experienced professionals, statistically, you have very little chance of your School Formal going precisely to plan.
Remember - you only get one chance.
