This is it. This is the night you've been dreaming of since you were a freshman. Maybe you went to prom last year or the year before that but none of that compares to THIS being YOUR senior prom. This is your night to shine and enjoy your senior year. Soon enough, you will be walking across that stage receiving your diploma and ending your high school career. Make the most of your night to remember.
Please don't stress over trying to find the perfect date. Who cares if your crush doesn't ask you out? It won't matter after you graduate from high school. It's not the end of the world if you end up going stag to prom. There is nothing wrong with going with all of your friends. Enjoy the night with your friends as this is probably one of the last things you get to all enjoy in high school together. If your promposal isn't big and extravagant, don't worry! I'm sure whoever asks you put a lot of thought into how they were going to do it. If your date doesn't match your dress color exactly, don't freak out. Neutrals are your best friend so I'm sure you will find one that matches your dress close enough.
Find a dress that you love and that makes you feel most confident. Don't worry if someone else is wearing the same dress as you. Both of you can still rock the same dress and look amazing!! You also want to make sure that this dress is comfortable. Who wants to spend their whole prom night constantly puling up their strapless dress? On the note of comfortable, for all that is good in your life please find some comfortable shoes to wear! Chances are that you're not going to wear your shoes once you start dancing.
Your hair, makeup, and nails are your preference. If you want an extravagant up-do, make sure you bring spare bobby pins and remember how many you put in your hair. Wear whatever amount of makeup you want. Don't let society try and tell you how you should do your makeup. Get together with your friends and get ready.
Years down the line, long after you have graduated college, you don't want to look back at your senior prom and think of all of the things you worried about. You'll want to remember all of the fun times you had with your friends making the most of your senior year. Take as many pictures as you can! You want to remember this night and be able to show your children one day what you looked like at your senior prom. You can get married three or four times but prom is a once in a lifetime experience. You'll never get another senior prom so make the most of this one night. Make it count.
