The traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, green and gold were chosen by the King of Carnival in New Orleans in 1892, decades after New Orleans held its first Mardi Gras parades. Historians trace the origins of Mardi Gras to medieval Europe when it was adopted by the French House of the Bourbons in the 17th century, and the celebration that would become known as Fat Tuesday was later celebrated in French colonies like Louisiana and Alabama.
The official Mardi Gras colors are gold, green and purple, so many girls will want to go with a dress that fits this theme. If you're one of them, you can't go wrong with our bright, colorful dresses from Alyce Prom, Jasz Couture and Blush. These dresses come in a variety of bold colors, as well as with sequins, beading and other textured details that are just as festive as any Mardi Gras costume. Opt for a two-piece dress with a wide tulle or chiffon skirt for a really fun look, or go for a Mardi Gras prom dress with a mermaid shape that flatters your curves. We also carry dresses with deep V necks accented by chokers and netting for a sexy look that's just daring enough for a Mardi Gras bash.
If your colors are gold, green and purple, accent your short or long prom dress with sparkling earrings and bracelets from our prom accessories collection. If your prom gown is another color, you might even dress up your otherwise simple dress with gold, green or purple jewelry and hair accessories. Mardi Gras is a celebration, so think festive when putting together your look. To make things even more fun, tuck a few Mardi Gras beads into your formal handbag to award to your favorite people on prom night!
