With military ball season in full swing you might find yourself as a first-time military ball attendee. Freshly pressed dress uniforms, beautiful gowns, dancing, cake and a heavy dose of comradery and patriotism, a Military Ball really have it all. These events can be intimidating, but they can also be filled with a night of tremendous fun, not to mention the dancing! I have attended various military balls over the past ten years and have realized there are a few do's and don’ts that will help ensure you and your date enjoy the evening.
Here are my top four tips to consider as you prepare for the next military ball (or Holiday Party) at your spouses’ command.
I was curious to get the point of view of military member from a different branch of service. JJ Montanaro, retired Army veteran and USAA financial professional had these tips to offer:
I love JJ’s tips. When I asked Wendy Poling, fellow military spouse and Community Manager she shared, “do yourself a favor and schedule a hair styling appointment well in advance and early in the day. You’ll be glad to have one less thing to worry about and your hair will look amazing!”
The Marine Corps will soon celebrate its Birthday on November 10th. If you or your loved one is in the Marine Corps and you plan on attending this Birthday Ball or another military ball share with us your photo and tip for having the most enjoyable experience!
