Getting a Dress from OGS
The annual Princess Event is held in the spring. The 2019 (and final) event will be March 9-10 at Southdale Mall in Edina.
Referral forms are available here.
OGS provides a full prom outfit (dress, shoes, purse, and jewelry) to students in financial or family situations that makes it otherwise unfeasible to attend prom. OGS will also provide minor alterations.
During the event, each Princess is guided through the event with a Fairy Godmother as their personal shopper.
All students must have a referral form to be admitted to the event. Referral forms are emailed to teachers/administrators/social workers/etc in early February. If you are a counselor, clergy member, social worker, teacher etc that would like to refer a student, but need a form, please email us at email@example.com.
Unfortunately, we are unable to provide dresses to girls who are pregnant as we cannot accommodate alterations that would be necessary.
Attending the Princess Event
Arrive at your appointment time – we do our best to keep things on schedule, but appreciate your patience if we’re running behind.
Please be prepared to try on dresses with appropriate undergarments. Trying on a dress with street clothes (jeans, t-shirts, sweaters, etc) will not be allowed. Please wear thin leggings if you will be uncomfortable removing your pangs. It is very important that we fit the dress correctly so that it fits well for prom. You will also be asked to remove any makeup you are wearing so that it does not rub off on the dresses.
Each princess is allowed one female guest in the event space. This guest will sit in our guest gallery while you shop with your Fairy Godmother. Guest spots are very limited, we appreciate your understanding if your guest has to wait in the entry area. We are unable to allow any infants or children in the event space.
Please plan to be at the event for about 90-120 minutes. You may need to stay longer if your alterations are being done on-site.
