The Horrors of Prom

Dresses, nails, and hair, oh my! Prom can be a stressful time for the average high schooler. With the constant worries of “who’s going to ask me or who am I going to ask?” This is a blog about prom and all of the horrors that come with it.

I went to Prom Palace in Lima, Ohio this last weekend to look for my prom dress, and woah is it overwhelming! I picked out three dresses I loved, and it came down to a white dress that fit perfectly. I took a look at the price tag … $500.00! That is outrageous, why does something that you’re only going to wear once, cost so much money? My mom quickly pulled me out of the store and we drove around to countless other dress shops, but no dresses sufficed.

In a stressed-out-prom-dress frenzy, I went onto Pinterest hoping to find “the perfect dress.” After two hours of  searching I found a red dress from Sweetheartgirl.com. The dress came in and it fit like a glove. Prom dress: check.

I have a boyfriend so it’s not that hard to figure out who I was going to go with, but  helping my friends was another story. We picked from a list of candidates (the yearbook), and we decided on two guys. Now came the hard part, the pursuit. The easiest way to get a guy to ask you to prom is to just come out and tell him, but that is way to forward. The second easiest way is to have your friend drop multiple hints, and eventually the guy will catch on to it and ask you. A word of advice: pick someone you will have fun with, but won’t be attached to your hip.

We all know that prom is full of many more stressful moments, but these are a few that I encountered this year. Have a safe and fun 2k15 Prom!
