We’d imagine a hip NYC teen who gets to go to lavish Gossip Girl-like parties would have supersized ideas when it comes to prom, but Avery’s actually pretty traditional. Learn all about her dream prom now and don’t forget to share yours in the comments!
“Prom is something most people look forward to as the highlight of high school. It’s perceived to be a very important night of your teen years, and many imagine their “picture perfect” prom as something straight out of a Disney movie. The girls worry about their dress, hair, makeup, shoes, and most importantly, having a (hot) date.
Some girls dream about being voted the prom queen and having their boyfriend as the king. Sadly, the truth is most proms aren’t going to be exactly like proms in the movies even though we all wish they could be. Instead, prom should really be about feeling beautiful and having the time of your life with your friends before you go off to college.
I have yet to go to prom, but that hasn’t stopped me from thinking about it! And yes, my imagination is one straight out of a Disney movie. I imagine my prom not at a school gym, but in a nice rented space that is fit for a big party. It should be a space where one can transform it into ANYTHING. I feel like having a distinct theme (like 60s or Masquerade Ball) would make prom seem cheesy because it’s more about how you want to dress and feel comfortable doing it. I imagine everyone dancing all night long and creating memories that would last a lifetime. Hopefully, there would be a good DJ playing great dance music as well as those nice slow songs. People would be taking their prom photos to remember the night and post them on Facebook for everyone to see.
