Going to some company or other prom? Then surely you know what are the unwritten rules for what you take on yourself. Men must, of course, have a suit, preferably a tie or a bow tie, women must have a formal dress. Without this, no woman or man will have to go, so it should be part of their wardrobe.
The ball is a big event. It is mostly a huge hall, which is beautifully decorated, all are beautifully dressed in social dresses and dancing throughout the evening. Most women are very pleased here, because they can show up in that beautiful robe and even dance their favorite dances. It's not the men who want the balls, because they don't like suits and they hate to tread on women's feet while dancing. However, they will eventually meet and enjoy their expectations in the evenings.
